“Here is proof that you can create with what you have on social and it’s enough. “Turnt Up With The Taylor’s” was born on my INSTAGRAM, from a sketch character named Chelsea Barbie Taylor that I birthed alongside @maxwyeth. Y’all did this with me! Beyond grateful to my team @shayladavis135, @lukecdillon, @austagram, @davebecky_manager and of course @facebookwatch.
After TJVP a lot of people didn’t see it for me, but I have always been what I am. I am a creator, so I have always created and God has done the rest. No matter what avenue, no matter how much money I have had and not had, my art was my escape and it has saved my life more times than you know. It doesn’t matter who is watching you! Never ever give up. Keep telling stories that matter to you. Keep being an artist, that’s all that matters. Though I appreciate this acknowledgement, I am still the same girl I have always ever been. No amount of outside validation can grant you the peace I feel from knowing God. Bless up! See y’all tomorrow at the Met Gala Live Stream ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️”
This was also Keke‘s first Emmys nomination!
