New Grad Keke Palmer Hits the Gas, Career-Wise

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

hollywoodnews.com: Keke Palmer reports she’s just graduated from high school — and she’s awfully relieved. ‘Hoo! Thank God. That was a lot of pressure on my back. Now it’s one less thing to worry about,’ declares the 16-year-old star of Nickelodeon’s ‘True Jackson, VP’ series — and the ‘True Jackson: Trapped in Paris’ movie that debuts on the channel tonight (5/22).

Keke, who rose to fame with acclaimed dramatic work in such fare as ‘Akeelah and the Bee’ and ‘The Wool Cap,’ tells us she may be stepping before the cameras in her first big screen teen comedy in coming weeks. She credits ‘True Jackson’ with giving her a place to show her comedic abilities. ‘Trapped in Paris’ even has her doing a rap song ‘on an airplane. It’s a really fun scene,’ she says.

She has other feature work on the horizon as well. But her main focus for this summer is her first album for Interscope Records.

‘It’s pretty much done. I can’t wait to get out there with the music. I’ve been very, very happy with response so far,’ says Keke. She did much of her recording during ‘True Jackson’ series shooting, heading to the studio after a day’s work was through.
