‘To change the thoughts of men, it takes a real woman to reverse his psychology’ reads the opening message in Keke Palmer‘s new video for Reverse Psychology.
The track features a role reversal similar to Beyoncé’s If I Were a Boy, in which Palmer asks her cheating boyfriend how he would feel if she used the same excuses.
What if I told you I was out loving another man? What if I told you it didn’t mean a thing? / What if I told you that I loved you so, but these hoes, I can’t let go? / Could you handle all the things that you told me? / How about some reverse psychology?”
Talking to Billboard, Palmer explained about the underlying meaning of the song.
I think for me, especially with the continuation of my shadow kids, it’s all about awareness.” She adds, “I think, while staying true to myself and whatever my current disposition is, it’s important for me to display consciousness or the process of being aware of your thoughts as a young person. Whether it be abstract or actual or both.” Her “shadow kids” were first introduced in her “Enemiez” video, which she says represents her conscience.
I think the point of the whole video was to let people know that that my sexuality is up to me. 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!”
In a recent interview with People Magazine, Palmer explained that she doesn’t feel as if she needs to be tied down to one label when it comes to her sexuality.
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?’. I’m making the rules for myself, and I don’t have to be stuck down to one label.
I don’t feel the need to define nothing to nobody, because I’m always changing. Why say that I’m this or that when I might not be tomorrow?”
Having just wrapped production on Ryan Murphy’s campy co-ed slasher series Scream Queens, Keke says she is now focusing more time on her music career and prepping for an upcoming album.
Scream Queens’ Keke Palmer, has a new video out for her single I Don’t Belong to You, and it features a bisexual twist, which sees Palmer’s on-screen persona leaving her relationship with a guy for another women (played by a Calvin-Klein underwear-clad Cassie).
Palmer explained in a recent interview with Necole Bitchie that the song is about coming to terms with change, partially in response to having come out of a long relationship.
I don’t belong to anyone else but myself. I have to make my own decisions. Happiness is defined by me. My sexuality is defined by me. And that can change and this can change and I can make it what I want to make it because I’m the one who makes that choice”.
The former Disney star, who’s starring as Zayday in Fox’s super-campy horror series Scream Queens, further explains how the song is an extension of her.
…that’s what I Don’t Belong to You, is saying. This song feels right. It feels right and it’s telling who I am. And it captures my identity.”

Queen Latifah and Keke Palmer have joined forces for the new film Brotherly Love. The family-centric film explores the lives of several Philadelphia residents as they pursue their dreams and deal with harsh reality.
BET sat with Latifah, who produced the film, and Palmer, who stars, to talk about their mentor-protege relationship, the sacrifices each made to get where they are, and about a particular scene in the film — in which a Black kid is harassed by a white cop — that rings tragically true in the wake of so many instances of police brutality splashed across headlines.
