Keke Palmer knows how to celebrate a milestone birthday. The Big Boss herself blessed the Instagram timeline on Saturday with a series of photos to ring in a new decade of her life.
In honor of her 30th birthday on August 26, Palmer shared multiple steamy photos that featured the actor in a skin-tight, high-neck black bodysuit. Palmer's sultry shots showed her skin covered in some sort of dark oil, and she paired the dirty look with wet curls and a dark smokey eye. The Nope actor appropriately captioned the photo with the hashtag “Durrty Thirty.” In one shot, Palmer shared a photo of her butt with the numbers 3 and 0 on each cheek. Iconic!
“Being grateful is the KEY, so showing gratitude is always the move," Palmer wrote. “I am blessed and grateful to see another year. I am grateful my family and I are healthy. I’m bringing in ‘30’ by being me and being better. To all my fellow Virgos, keep being bold, gentle, and true. Here’s to finding more balance in self-expression from personal and professional life. God Bless.”
Palmer recently starred in the music video for Usher's new song “Boyfriend," in a bold move after controversy with her ex and the father of her child, Darius Jackson. Her ex publically shamed Palmer online earlier this month for attending Usher's Las Vegas residency concert in an outfit that he claimed was “not fit for a mother.” (Yawn!)
Palmer and Jackson have seemingly gone their separate ways romantically, and though Palmer never addressed the situation directly, starring in Usher's video seemed to send a clear message. And with this new photo series, she is showing that being a mother and being sexy are not mutually exclusive. Happy birthday to thee Keke Palmer!
