Akeelah and the bee child actress, Keke Palmer has come for Kylie Jenner for bowing to societal pressure to be beautiful!
Speaking to Yahoo Beauty, the Scream Queens star said the internet
has become so judgmental that people will either beat trolls to the
punch and put themselves down, or conform to the societal version of
perfection so that nobody can criticize.
the sense of the Kardashians, it’s like I’m going to show you so much
perfect and be everything a woman should be or everything a man would
like or love,’ she said. ‘And I’m going to be exactly that so you can’t
bully me anymore.
Specifically in the situation with Kylie, where
you’ve had a young girl people have seen on television since she was a
kid and they literally told her she was so ugly … the ugly person in the
family. She went and did apparently everything the world deems as
beautiful. The even crazier part is that everybody loves her for it.
What I find interesting is that this is something that is being
displayed to my generation — showing young girls, young guys that if you
do everything that society wants you to be, not only will you be
praised for it but you will make money for it. You can be profitable for
not being who you truly are.
I would just say always be real with
yourself, because at the end of the day that’s all we got. There’s
nothing more important in life than being true to ourselves and being
100 percent loving to ourselves. Putting our feelings [first] and how we
wanna feel and do that above what anybody thinks no matter how
impossible, selfish, weird, scary. or embarrassing that may seem.
When I realized that, I realized that’s what it means to be confident. Confidence is me making choices that empower me.”
