Nickelodeon rocks Memorial Day with the premiere of the brand-new original TV movie, Rags, on Monday, May 28, at 8 PM ET/PT. Set against a New York City backdrop, this music-infused contemporary twist on the classic Cinderella tale stars Keke Palmer as international pop princess, Kadee Worth and Max Schneider (How to Rock) as an orphan and aspiring singer, Charlie Prince.
Beginning May 22, the Rags Soundtrack, featuring nine songs from the movie and three bonus songs, will be available via all digital service providers. Rags is executive produced by Nick Cannon, directed by Bille Woodruff (Honey, Beauty Shop),with original music written and produced by Rodney 'Darkchild' Jerkins. Palmer also serves as producer.
On her upcoming role in A Virgin Mary: We haven’t started to film it yet, but I’m very excited because this is something new for me. People have always known me, as I said, as Keke Palmer the 'good girl.' In this movie, I’m not necessarily being a huge slut, but my character is just that. She’s like, ‘I’m a sex enthusiast.
That’s who I am,’ but the reason why I chose this film was because it’s different from what everybody knows me as. & this character spoke to me because she was funny, she was likeable.. Even if I didn’t play the character,
..you would immediately love her because she’s just lovable. And it’s almost like [Draya] on Basketball Wives LA. People can say whatever they want about her, but you like Draya because that’s who she is. You either like her or you don’t. No fronting, no nothing.
On meeting her boyfriend: One day Patrick [Johnson, Jr.] came to the set of True Jackson VP, & he brought Rodney, my boyfriend, with him. My mouth dropped when I saw him, and I’m just like, Keke, control yourself! [Laughs] I was 15 years old at the time, and he was 19, so we didn’t talk or anything like that.
I just always had a huge crush on him. Then when I was like 17, I talked to my parents ’cause my mom was like, ‘If you want to date somebody, & I guess the oldest age would be 21.’ I just couldn’t believe that she said that to me. It really almost made my heart skip a beat because I always liked him.
