Keke Palmer’s upcoming documentary and album will be intimate reflections of her “Big Boss” status.

The new mother announced details about the two projects on Instagram March 7. Palmer shared that the documentary — seemingly titled Big Boss — is “a musical narrative” chronicling her experience in the music industry.

The trailer for the film shows snapshots and footage of Palmer throughout her rise from a child star to one of Hollywood’s most diverse talents. “I don’t need to be accepted by the cool kids or the elite bullsh-t — I just need to be accepted by me,” she proclaims. 

“Overcoming this inner narrative that tells me no matter how far I come, I’m still not good enough,” her voiceover said elsewhere in the trailer. “Being different is one thing, feeling lonely is another. We all have our hurdles, but this one, I’m done with.”

Palmer said her documentary is her directorial debut in a July 2022 interview with British Vogue. She added that the accompanying album is “a collection of different vibes” representing her growth and current place in life.

“You feel shamed by being a boss – especially as a female,” Palmer said. “It’s like, only a man is allowed to have the kind of attributes that I have.”
