Keke Palmer is “so sad,” disappointed, and frustrated after her plans to release her album fell through…AGAIN!
The actress, singer and talk show host took to social media on Friday and was very transparent as she talked about the struggles of the music industry and the heartbreak the comes along with it.
I feel so sad for a couple of reasons. The first being that when I tell my fans something, the people that have always supported me, I want to come through for them.
When it has come to music, I feel like I have always let you guys down. I will say something is coming out this day, the album will be released this time and.. it never happens. What y’all don’t know is the album is done, it’s been done for a whole year. What y’all don’t know is I have worked so hard on so many launches.
I have planned, scheduled, prepared and put so much of my heart and soul into delivering you music at the level in which you deserve! At the level in which everything I put out is. But the music industry and the things you have to go through, the way it’s set up is absolutely soul crushing. This story is so outdated and I can not put it into words but anyone that does music will understand what I mean.
I give you dates and set expectations and then I am just as confused as you are when things don’t follow through. It took me so many years to recover emotionally from the disappointment and heartbreak of my first record deal at 12. I thought starting my own label and owning my music would make things easier but they are just that much MORE complicated. All I want to do is make music and let it be heard.
I truly don’t understand how something that can come so easily to me, be surrounded by so much bullsh*t. I am deeply saddened to tell you that I don’t know when you will get new music, I’m not sure how I’m supposed to get it to you.
This is not to be like boo hoo or anything it’s simply me being a person of my word, being transparent and letting you know what’s going on. That I don’t have any answers for you, all I can say is I still love music itself and if it happens that I am able to share that with you guys sometimes I will.
I had to say something instead of looking crazy asf like I’ve been lying to you.. I’ve been being lied to as well ?
