Keke Palmer Interview

Ice Cube and Keke Palmer in The LongShots
Ice Cube and Keke Palmer in The LongShots

By: Sindy

Sindy:: Tell me about The Longshots.

Keke: It’s about a young girl named Jasmine Plummer who plays quarterback on an all-male football team and takes the team to the Pop Warner competition.


Sindy::Did you get to meet the real Jasmine?


Keke: Yes and I was so excited, I had so many questions for her.


Sindy::What did she think of your performance?


Keke: She thought I did a really good job, it was really nice to hear.


Sindy::Did you have to train a lot?


Keke: Yes, I did, I trained for about four weeks just learning the technique of how to throw the ball and the strength you need in your legs for throwing. It was a great experience, I had a great coach.


Sindy:: Did you play football before?


Keke: No, I threw the ball around before but not correctly. (laughs)


Sindy:: Had you played any sports before?


Keke: Well, I’m like a tomboy and a girly girl at the same time so if someone wants to play, I can do that, and if girls want to put on make-up, I can do that too!


Sindy:: Jasmine can throw more than 65 yards—how far did you get the ball?


Keke: I threw about 40.


Sindy:: That’s pretty good! What was it like working with Ice Cube again? You worked with him a bit in Barbershop 2, right?


Keke: It was great to work closer with him because in Barbershop 2 we had like one scene together so it was definitely cool to get to know him better.


Sindy:: What’s he like?


Keke: He’s so cool, laid back—definitely a family guy.


Sindy:: What was it like to have Fred Durst (lead singer of Limp Bizkit) as the director?


Keke: It was pretty cool, he’s definitely an artist. It wasn’t hard to see him as a director once I met him because he’s such an artist no matter what field.


Sindy:: You sing too, right?


Keke: Yes, I have an album out called So Uncool and I did the theme song for the Nickelodeon show I star in called True Jackson, VP. It was pretty awesome to be able to co-write and sing the song for my own show.


Sindy:: Your character gets hired by her idol—who’s your idol?


Keke: I love Brandy! And I’d love to work with Will Smith.


Sindy:: You film in front of a live audience, is that tough?


Keke: No, it’s actually great because we get the energy pumping—when the crowd comes we hit it up an extra notch just because the energy in the room is so exciting and we want to give them a really great show.


Sindy:: Thanks so much, Keke.


Keke: Thanks, Kidzworld!
