“In the sense of the Kardashians, it’s like I’m going to show you so much perfect and be everything a woman should be or everything a man would like or love. And I’m going to be exactly that so you can’t bully me anymore,” the actress shares with W magazine. Being in the limelight for years after finding fame as a Disney Channel star, Keke had her fair share of struggles in Hollywood, which only means that this girl knows what she’s talking about. “Specifically in the siutation with Kylie, where you’ve had a young girl people have seen on television since she was a kid and they literally told her she was so ugly … the ugly person in the family. She went and did apparently everything the world deems as beautiful. The even crazier part is that everybody loves her for it”, Palmer adds, as she expresses her dismay for prominent people like Kylie, who seems to be giving in to the pressures of society. “What I find interesting is that this is something that is being displayed to my generation — showing young girls, young guys that if you do everything that society wants you to be, not only will you be praised for it, but you will make money for it,” she explains. “You can be profitable for not being who you truly are.” The Bottoms Up singer remains incredibly honest about her struggles and does not try to conceal them, which she further explains in her memoir, “I Don’t Belong To You”. In this memoir, she shares her experiences under the spotlight in an inspiring effort to show us that it’s alright to be your imperfect self.
