Forget about getting a car: Keke Palmer is doing big things for her sweet 16.
For starters, she just signed a multi-album deal with Interscope Records, and her next CD will be dropping sometime next year. But she couldn’t let the summer pass without adding her own voice to the seasonal soundtrack. Her new single, “Super Jerkin’” is gaining radio rotation. You can check her out on BET’s “106 and Park” tonight at 6 p.m. EST.
Then there’s her show on Nickelodeon, “True Jackson: VP,” where she plays a teenaged fashion exec. The series was just picked up for a second season and its spawned a clothing line called Mad Style. Wal-mart will be carrying the collection, aimed at tween girls, just in time for back-to-school. And Nickeloden will be premiering a “True Jackson: VP” movie, Testing True, on July 25.
But before Testing True debuts, Keke‘s latest feature film, Shrink, will hit theaters in New York and Los Angeles on July 24. There will be a wider release later. She’ll be starring alongside Kevin Spacey in the movie playing one of his patients.
And, if that weren’t enough, Keke is also taking on the role of producer of Oreo. It’s a movie adaptation of a book about a girl who holds her divorced parents responsible for the confusion in her life.
