Keke Palmer's Favorite Thing About Her Appearance: "My Confidence"

Keke Palmer is a singer, author, and star of stage and scream. When she isn't holding court on Scream Queens or playing Cinderella, she's singing sultry tunes and penning inspirational tomes, like the recently released I Don't Belong to You: Quiet the Noise and Find Your Voice. Almost as inspirational: she once had a sleepover with TLC's Chilli.
