Keke Palmer has broken new ground as the youngest talkshow host ever! As the host of the new show “Just Keke,” the actress is not only excited but she’s admitted to being a bit nervous. That’s okay, though. She’s got big support from veterans in the game.
Queen Latifah had a little word of advice for her, and it’s just what she needed to hear!
“She said I [should] just be myself – my natural personality,” says Palmer.
Just Keke debuted last week on BET and Palmer, 20, told People.com that some of Latifah’s pointers have already proven to be true, “She was saying it definitely would be a lot of work and to prepare myself for that. And that’s definitely true because there are a lot of hours and everything like that, and a lot of talking involved, hence my voice being hoarse.”
The show targets teens and twenty-somethings and explores the topics that they are dealing including social media, sex, relationships and bullying.
Palmer also says that Queen Latifah has been there for her in the past, “She’s been a big part in my career,” she says. “She’s always been a big supporter.”
Congrats Keke on your success. Here’s to much more!
