Keke Palmer Says Her Man Has To Mind His Own Business

Plus, Keke dishes on the real reason sleep is non-negotiable when it comes to her grown-ass lifestyle.

Celebrity News

From booking her starring role in the box office hit, Hustlers, to securing a hefty bag from ABC for her new role as host on the Sara, Strahan, and Keke Show, 26-year-old entertainer Keke Palmer has made it clear that she's no longer the cute kid from Akeelah and the Bee, she's a grown-ass woman.

With adulthood comes the need for grown-ass dating expectations, and in a recent interview with Seth Meyers, our good sis had a word about choosing an equally yoked partner. When asked about her ultimate dating dealbreakers, Keke had this to say:

"You got to have something going on because I have stuff going on so I can't be like, doing all my stuff and then call you and you're just sitting there waiting for me. That's too much."

According to the Singled Out host, while a good "wyd" text is almost inevitable when dating in the digital age, there's nothing sexier than a man who can mind his own damn business (both literally and figuratively).

"He could text me but he has to have something going. You have to have something to do. Otherwise, it's just like codependent and he's gonna start asking me for money cause he knows I got it."

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Keke revealed more about what she's seeking in a romantic partner and spoke on the traits that will make her say "sorry to this man":

"Obviously bad breath is like, 'Oh, no, love.' Not-moisturized lips—keep yourself up! I would love the teeth to be off-white or white, you know? [laughs] Make sure there is no crust in the eyes. I need nothing in the eyes; it's like, 'Oh my gosh, did you wash your face this morning?" And smell good. That's the basic one, but those are specific pet peeves of mine.

During her chat, Keke also broke down her morning routine and why sleep is non-negotiable when it comes to her grown-ass lifestyle.

"I'm a pretty ritualistic person. A big part of it is knowing what I'm doing the next day, so if there are any extra moving pieces, I can get my mind mentally prepared. Sleep is really, really important to me. Maybe four or five years ago—I was 21, 20—it was like, 'Sleep, who needs it?!' Now it's like, 'Oh, hell no, I need to sleep today.' Sleeping is a very big part of why I have the energy I think I have. I really force discipline and make it a part of my life, and working out [has become] a part of my schedule."

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
