Keke Palmer is opening up about experiencing career burnout, how she has pushed through, and what she’s looking forward to next.
The 27-year-old entertainer is the first-ever digital cover star and creative advisor for Refinery29′s Unbothered.
“I’ve been burnt out many times. It’s just kinda what happens when you push yourself, and unfortunately when you’re the kind of person that I am, [someone] who takes on so much at one time,” Keke said about career burnout.
Keke said that she sometimes reaches a point where she doesn’t want to be around anyone.
“When I really need a break to rejuvenate, I don’t wanna be around anyone,” she said. “Not a romantic person, not a friend, not a mom, not a dad, not a sister, not a brother, not anyone. It gets to the point where I’m exerting so much energy that I really just have to be around no one.”
One thing she is looking forward to is starring in Jordan Peele‘s next horror film.
“GIIIIRRL! It’s just the kinda thing that’s serendipitous. Things are aligned. It’s like the things you wish for actually coming to fruition,” she said.
