My sexuality is defined by me. And that can transform and this can vary and I can make it what I want to make it because I’m the one who makes that option. So that’s what ‘I Don’t Belong to You’ is saying. This song feels right. It feels right and it’s telling me who I am. And it catches my identity.” Following the interview, she shared with the world via social media that she now identifies as no label.

Keke Palmer Pimp
Palmer plays a young woman who takes over her father’s illicit business in this gritty urban drama executive produced by Lee Daniels. Pimp is an engaging melodrama that could easily have played to devoted grindhouse audiences in the 1970s. Executive produced by Lee Daniels, the film manages simultaneously to feel feminist and utterly retrograde while proving fast-paced and entertaining.
She soon gets caught in a fierce battle when she comes face to face with a competitor who runs an even more dangerous game. An urban love story set on the hard streets of the Bronx. A struggling female Pimp, named Wednesday, grows up learning the game from her dad. Once he’s gone she’s left to look out for her prostitute mother and girlfriend Nikki.
The film finally expires into familiar action mechanics in its violent final act. But along the way, it offers an impressively captivating definition of its gritty milieu as well as a moving image of the tender, loving relationship between Wen and Nikki. Writer-director Crokos keeps the proceedings moving at a pace brisk enough to help one overlook the familiar plot dynamics, and the exceedingly blunt, profanity-laden dialogue often proves memorable.
