Rihanna’s fans are some of the most rabid around. Maybe it’s the whole military vibe — they are called the Navy after all — but when somebody goes after their girl, these folks muster and attack. So when Keke Palmer invited Chris Brown’s on-again, off-again girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, on to her new BET talk show, Just Keke, the Navy was all ready, aim, fire.
“People know I’m a huge Rihanna fan and so their initial thing is, ‘Why would you have Karrueche on the show if you’re a big Rihanna fan?!’” Keke explains of the drama surrounding her pick of a guest. “The thing is it’s not about me. It’s not about Keke. It’s not about how I feel or how I don’t feel. It’s about me keeping a promise to you guys which is always to give you the real.”
The former Nickelodeon star insists Karrueche’s relationship with Chris is news and news her audience cares about and that’s why the controversial star found a place on her TV talk show’s couch. Not that Keke still isn’t one of the biggest fans of RiRi around.
“Rihanna’s my favorite,” the actress says. “She represents being an individual and not being afraid. She lets her light shine and anyway you take it, she doesn’t care because she knows her true intention and she doesn’t let other people’s perception of her be her perception of herself.”
So what’s Keke think Rihanna makes of the whole situation? Watch the video above to find out!
