Keke Palmer Recalls This Celeb As The First Person To 'Warn' Her About Boys

Isn't he the best?

Keke Palmer

Keke Palmer has been in the spotlight ever since she starred in Akeelah and the Bee at the tender age of 11 and, while she was introduced to us as the cute girl with glasses, she was growing up and growing out of the awkward pre-teen phase.

Many people were taking notice, including N.W.A. rapper Ice Cube, and apparently, his fatherly instincts kicked in.


Keke appeared on the Oct. 26 episode of Celebrity Game Face where celebrities participate in trivia games. When it was the Hustlers star turn, she revealed that Ice Cube was the first person to give her dating advice.

She posed the question, "The first person to warn me about boys was a member of:

"A) my family, B) my church or C) N.W.A.?"

After celebs Monica, Supa Cent, and host Kevin Hart guessed the answer, Keke shared that the answer was a member of N.W.A., Ice Cube.

"When I was, I think 12 years old, I did the Long Shots with Ice Cube. When I was on the set, I grew up in the industry, but I was starting to get older at this point. I was starting to get together," Keke said, motioning her body.

She continues, "Ice Cube, he pulled me to the side. He was like, 'Keke, I know you're growing up, and I just want you to understand the way these men are seeing you isn't always how you see yourself.' And that was Ice Cube. Isn't he the best?"

How sweet!

Keke is one of the few child stars whose life didn't take a drastic turn for the worse while growing up in the spotlight.

The Joyful Noise star has continued on a positive path and made history while doing so. Keke became the youngest TV show host in TV history when she premiered her own talk show Just Keke on BET at 20 years old and she continues to sing and act.

As far as her love life, in the past, Keke has typically kept who she's dating private besides a few posts here and there. However, she's been pretty open about her current boyfriend Darius Dalton Jackson.

The couple posts a lot of adorable photos and TikTok videos with each other and while there's not much information about Darius, he is the younger brother to Insecure star Sarunas Jackson, the same TV show that Keke will be guest-starring on.

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
