KeKe Palmer is no stranger to changing up her look, and as of late, her most recent 'do has gotten her to the Trending Topics page on Twitter. While her viral status hasn't been for the most positive reasons — social media has been roasting the actress for the daring new look — KeKe is clearly unbothered, and wants everyone to know that she's just as confident as before.
She was first blasted for showing off her new "Queen of Kush" neck tattoo, and now that her faux locs and shaved head are the new topic of discussion, she has taken the time to release a statement, addressing all the unnecessary hate.
"I was trending on Twitter, I have been evolving as a young woman and I notice it has been gaining a lot of attention some good and some bad comments, and that is ok because it shows that people care about me and thinking about me and that is good stuff, one of my favorite videos was 4 page letter by Aaliyah so the vision for the video was a take on that vibe, mixed in with who I am as an artist," she said.
Continuing to address the trolls and explaining her new visual, she continued, "I have my 'shadow kids' dressed in black, I first introduced them in my 'Ememiez' video, they represent my conscience. I love Aaliyah to me she was a true artist in every since [sic] of the word and I continue to be inspired by her and let my heart guide me as always," she wrote.
