various interviews that she identifies with her on-screen character
in the video for the single I Don't Belong To You.
the video, Palmer (Scream Queens) is seen leaving a
relationship with a man for another woman, played by model Cassie.
In an interview with Necole
Bitchie, Palmer said that the video may be imitating life.
“I don't belong to anyone else but
myself,” she said. “I have to make my own decisions. Happiness
is defined by me. My sexuality is defined by me. And that can
change and this can change and I can make it what I want to make it,
because I'm the one who makes that choice.”
In the current issue of People,
Palmer is asked whether the video was a “kind of coming-out.”
“The video was to represent the young
woman today – it's not the traditional woman anymore – and not
the specifics of 'Am I gay? Am I straight? Am I bi?'” the
22-year-old Palmer answered. “I'm making the rules for myself, and
I don't have to be stuck down to one label.”
