Keke Palmer stays booked and busy, and now the bag is getting heavier!
This week, news broke that Keke Palmer has been announced as R29 Unbothered’s first-ever digital cover star. The Black millennial women’s outlet also shared that Palmer has joined the Unbothered family as the brand’s first Creative Advisor in its history.
According to R29 Unbothered, Palmer will take on the responsibility of creatively consulting across the brand, “supporting and co-developing new projects that push conversations and our culture forward.” Her new role also includes partnering with the brand to brainstorm new ways to center Black joy across its daily content on its social platforms.
“I’m literally too excited about this. I started working with Unbothered years ago as a talent and I just loved how they created a safe space for Black women to share their stories, their experiences, their creativity—and their joy, honey! Because let’s not get it twisted, I’m very joyous and no one’s going to steal my joy,” Palmer shared in a press release provided to The Root.
