Playing Keke Palmer on Rumors About Her Sexuality: 'I Don't Have to Be Stuck Down to One Label'

Keke Palmer doesn't want to be tied down, especially when it comes to her sexuality.

The 22-year-old Scream Queens star raised a few eyebrows when she released her steamy "I Don't Belong to You" music video in October, in which she ends up hooking up with singer Cassie. The lingerie-filled video had some wondering whether the surprise ending was Keke's way of coming out.

"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?'" the actress explains in a new interview with People. "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 nothin' to nobody, because I'm always changing," she adds. "Why say that I'm this or that when I might not be tomorrow?"

The Grease: Live star's main priority is to stay true to herself.

"I'm gonna follow my own feelings and my own heart," Keke says.

The former Nickelodeon star isn't the only celeb refusing labels when it comes to her sexuality. In May, 23-year-old Miley Cyrus stressed that she was "ready to love anyone," during a candid Facebook Q&A.

"I never want to label myself!" Miley stressed to a fan who asked her point-blank what her sexuality was. "I am ready to love anyone that loves me for who I am! I am open!"
