Keke Palmer delivers the true meaning of being “booked to capacity.” The 22-year-old is not only an actress, recording artist and talk show host, but this year she became the first African American to portray Cinderella on Broadway. Palmer recently chatted with “W” magazine, discussing her new role in “Scream Queens” on FOX (alongside Ariana Grande) and balancing both her career and personal life. Check out some of the excerpts from the interview.
On how well she manages her career life and personal life:
My work is my life. I’ve worked so much that I don’t know the difference between my personal life and my work, or my personal friends and my work friends.
In addition to “Scream Queens”, she’s also juggling the release of her second album and working her own talk show, “Just Keke,” which premiered last year on BET, making her the youngest talk show host in television history.
On how she juggles multiple projects:
I’ve done a lot of meditation studying on my own, but I’ve also taken a couple of transcendence classes. I do twenty minutes [of meditation] in the morning and twenty minutes in the afternoon. It clears my mind and allows me to be ready for the next thing, without getting so compact that my mind goes into overload.
