Keke Palmer needs a glass slipper fitting, stat!
The 20-year-old star will be taking over the lead role in the stage musical Cinderella next month, making her the first African-American to play the role on Broadway. (In a similarly landmark turn, Brandy played Cinderella in the 1997 TV movie, costarring Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother.)
Asked how she was celebrating the awesome career coup, however, Palmer told Vanity Fair on Friday, "I don't really celebrate. And besides, I still don't believe it is real!"
Hmm, that last part sounds like over-the-moon enthusiasm to us! And of course, she may have celebrated since then.
