This comparison stemmed from both ladies being child stars who grew up to be successful young adult stars. There was also the notion that Nope is Palmer’s breakout role and she has finally arrived in the entertainment business.
Keke had to remind them this is not that and she is not the one. “A great example of colorism is to believe I can be compared to anyone. I’m the youngest talk show host ever. The first Black woman to star in her own show on Nickelodeon, & the youngest & first Black Cinderella on broadway. I’m an incomparable talent. Baby, THIS, is Keke Palmer.”
The 28-year-old Illinois native added “I’ve been a leading lady since I was 11 years old. I have over 100+ credits, and currently starring in an original screenplay that’s the number one film at the box office #NOPE. I’ve had a blessed career thus far, I couldn’t ask for more but God continues to surprise me.”
The bottom line put some respect on her name.
