Keke Palmer revealed to PEOPLE magazine that she doesn’t like labels on her sexuality.
The Scream Queens star’s sexual orientation had been previously called into question after she released her music video for “I Don’t Belong to You.” In the video, Palmer leaves her boyfriend to meet up at fellow singer Cassie’s house in lingerie. The scene had people wondering how Palmer identified.
“The video was to represent the young woman today – it’s not the traditional woman anymore – and not the specifics of ‘Am I gay? Am I straight? Am I bi?'” Palmer says. “I’m making the rules for myself, and I don’t have to be stuck down to one label.”
Palmer had discussed the video before in Cosmopolitan’s November issue.
“I think the point of the whole video was to let people know that that my sexuality is up to me,” Palmer told Cosmopolitan. “That’s really the point — it’s female autonomy and her being who she wants to be in the world; there’s no labels attached, she’s just doing her! She doesn’t have to explain it to anybody because at the end of the day, it’s her that decides what she wants to do, and who!”
Palmer’s next project is playing Marty Maraschino in FOX’s “Grease: Live” set to air on Jan. 31.
