Demi Lovato Is Hit With A Truly Aggressive Amount Of Slime At Kids' Choice Awards
Huffington Post - 11 months
Kids’ Choice Awards veteran and celebrity superstar Demi Lovato just got slimed Saturday night — and let’s just say it didn’t look like she saw that one coming AT ALL. We broke the mess down, photo by photo, below. Here, we start with poor, unsuspecting Demi. Just look at that flawless makeup. This is not the face of someone who’s anticipating getting slimed. Here, the slime is coming for Demi, but Demi still doesn’t see the slime. Duck, Demi! Now they’re sliming her from all angles. Does Nickelodeon really need this much slime for just one person? This doesn’t seem fair. At this point, Demi is thoroughly coated in slime. Come on, she can’t even open her eyes! The slimy moment came out of nowhere when Lovato hit the stage to promote her upcoming film “Smurfs: The Lost Village.” Though the “Confident” singer didn’t seem all that pleased with the plot twist, it certainly made for good television.

I'm So Ready For More Queer Black Girl Celebrity Couples
Huffington Post - 12 months
When Keke Palmer visited The Wendy Williams Show last week, the main highlight was the actress dragging the host for victim-blaming. But another standout of the interview was Palmer admitting that when it comes to dating, she likes “whoever loves [her]” with no respect to gender. It was a great moment of validation for Black girls on the queer spectrum. But what irked me was that just moments later, when Williams gave Palmer relationship advice, she still only referenced Palmer dating “boys and men.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Keke Palmer On Self-Expression, Acting And Her Musical Comeback
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Nearly 10 years after the release of her debut album, Keke Palmer is back with the release of her new 5-track visual album, “Lauren.” Titled after her birth name, Lauren Keyana Palmer, the “Akeelah and the Bee” actress gives the audience insight into her career as Keke Palmer, and addresses the obstacles and vulnerabilities that often come with being an entertainer. In September 2007, Palmer released her debut album, “So Uncool,” which failed to make an impact on the top of music charts. The flop, as it were, led Palmer to pursue acting full-time, resulting in a string of starring roles on TV series such as  “True Jackson, VP” and “Scream Queens,” among others. In retrospect, the singer-actress says her doubt about pursuing music was a result of label executives’ reluctance to view her as an artist. “They wouldn’t let me tell my story. And it’s not personal, it’s a very corporate business,” she told The Huffington Post. “It’s the corporate versus the creative. When you d...
