Keke Palmer is taking her beef with Trey Songz to another level.
After accusing Trey Songz of ‘sexual intimidation’ for putting her in his “Pick up the Phone” music video without permission, Keke tells Larry King that she’s taking legal action.
As for why she didn’t want to be a part of the video in the first place, she says:
“Because I wasn’t in the right mind. I had been drinking and eating, and it wasn’t a professional environment. It was not a place where I’m like, ‘I’m in the right mind to decide if this works with my brand, if I like the artist.’ I don’t know nothing about the artist that’s also in the song.”
Keke also explains what exactly she meant by ‘sexual intimidation’:
“You know, I feel like, as a female, often I’m put in situations where sometimes males will use their masculinity, their sexuality, to taunt you. It would be like you going to a party where the biggest jock is there and the whole time he’s like, you know, ‘You can get screwed. You can get this, you can get that. You ain’t no little girl no more.’”
When it comes to legal action, Keke says that it’s not just about her.
“I mean the video is down now. But I mean…I feel more so my point isn’t to say it’s not just specifically about this person, this guy or what he did. It’s the overall idea that you can’t just do stuff to people and it’s all right. No matter who you are.”
