8th Annual Women Of Excellence Luncheon - Arrivals

Singer and actress KeKe Palmer has been in the hot seat lately for a couple of big changes she made to her look. First, there was her new “Queen of Kush” neck tattoo, and now she’s rocking a new hairstyle that features faux locs and a half shaved scalp.

KeKe became a trending topic on Twitter after she released photos of her new look on her own Snapchat story, and had fans wondered if she was going through a classic celebrity meltdown.

Others just made jokes at Palmer’s expense.

While some were just plain disrespectful.

But the young star did not let the haters get her down. She released a statement letting the trolls know that they won’t get the best of her. “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.

KeKe 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.

As always, KeKe stays on top.
