American actress and singer, Keke Palmer, has opened up about her s£xuality.

The Nope actress was candid about her s£xuality when she appeared on The Best Podcast Ever with Raven and Miranda.

In her conversation with Raven-Symoné and her wife, Miranda Maday, Keke talked about coming out as a free spirit and how she broached the topic of s£xuality with her family.

“There was a moment in my life where I was like ya know, can I be myself? The moment where you overthink sh*t,” Palmer explained to Raven, who had her own coming out in 2013. “That’s not even me, why am I overthinking this? I guess you just get to the point where I want my life to be my own life.”

“There is like an unsaid thing that can make you feel — and because I liked guys too, I was kinda like, ‘Well, we don’t have to talk about it.’ Because I like guys too, it was like that’s another extra thing that no one really has to know about. I don’t really have to live out,” she stated.

According to her, she was 17 when she decided to “explore her life.”

“I ultimately just feel like, the acceptance of that part of myself, in general, was a part of my process of being able to have love in my life,” she said.

She added, “Sexuality and stuff like that, that was not even — my parents never even cared about something like that or talked about that. And I know that by the time they saw how free of a spirit I was, and whoever I wanted to date, they were like, ‘Whoever cares.’ It was never anything that was in their mind.”

On her s£xuality, Palmer has been opening up about it with her 2015 music video for her song, “I Don’t Belong to You,” to make her stance known.

“The video was to represent the young woman today — it’s not the traditional woman anymore — and not the specifics of ‘Am I gay? Am I straight? Am I bi?'” the actress told People of the video, which sees Palmer explore both sides of her sexuality. “I’m making the rules for myself, and I don’t have to be stuck down to one label.”

“I don’t feel the need to define nothin’ to nobody, because I’m always changing,” she added. “Why say that I’m this or that when I might not be tomorrow? I’m gonna follow my own feelings and my own heart.”

After meeting her partner Darius Jackson in 2021, they welcomed their son, Leodis, in February 2023.
