KeKe Palmer is all grown up. On Tuesday, images emerged of the former Akeelah and the Bee star showcasing her seductive side for a steamy pictoral in the October issue of Maxim, the popular men’s magazine.

Up next, the 22-year-old is prepping for the premiere of her upcoming slasher-comedy, “Scream Queens,” alongside an A-list cast, including Emma Roberts, Ariana Grande, Abigail Breslin and Lea Michele as sorority sisters whose house, Kappa Kappa Tau, is attacked by a masked serial killer.

“Scream Queens” debuts on Tuesday, Sept. 22, at 8 p.m. EST. In the meantime, check out the rest of Palmer’s steamy Maxim photos in the gallery below.
