For many, Keke is a sister who has grown up in the public eye through various roles and now stands out as a beautiful, aspirational icon. Keke admits to this aspect of her transformation in talking with The Cut – and how this growth has enhanced her career.
“I do feel like America’s little sister, little cousin,” she said during the interview. “I feel very much so related to everybody. I’m like that second cousin that you see every two years at the family reunion.”

Keke Palmer – The ‘It’ Girl
Without knowing it, Keke personifies the ‘It Girl.’ She is the girl who works hard and has her own but is personable and stylish while doing it.
In the face of recent news, Keke also gets candid about the power of motherhood in the special issue. Keke is honest with The Cut readers about how her son, Leo, has impacted her life forever, and the strength she’s gained from the ‘young mother’ experience.
“I’ll be honest, I think before I even had the baby, I was really actually quite self-conscious,” Keke says. “After having my baby, I’ve gotten so much more powerful. We’re going to lean into this new body, and I think that is the whole aura of what’s happening with me in this big boss era as I come into my 30s, and I have my baby boy, and I’m just continuing to spread my wings as a young woman.”
No matter the topic, Keke has a way of getting personal and dropping gems. Her newest cover story with The Cut is evidence. Click here to read more.
