Promoting any project requires a lot of interaction with media, executives and fans. 

'I'm going to be expending so much energy, talking, laughing, and engaging. And I don't do anything half-a**ed. So if I'm talking, I'm talking; if I'm laughing, I'm laughing; if I'm engaging, I'm engaging.' 

Learning to say 'no' has been difficult, but the busy artist asserts it was necessary, and that she had to approach self-care, the same way she approached her acting career.

'I realized it's hard to say no because we don't trust. We don't trust that if we say no the opportunity will come again. Or we don't trust that if we say no we've made the right choice. Or we're scared that if we say no we're going to offend somebody.'

Keke said she's been practicing the art of saying 'no' for about two years now and she's 'getting really good at it'
