Keke Palmer had “20 Covid examinations every other day” and also underwent “extensive quarantine” to organize the MTV Video Music Awards.
The ‘snack’ hitmaker has revealed the gruelling medical examination she had to undertake to organize the yearly songs event on Sunday.
Taking to Instagram, she shared: “I organized the VMAs! Yes the one with the dystopian world motif. Oh wait, that’s reality, no motif required! Haha … you people, I have no concept how any one of this was managed. I’m sure you all recognize exactly how hard it is to work during a pandemic, the amount of hoops we needed to maintain jumping via translates into taking control of 20 Covid tests every other day as well as intensive quarantine for myself and my whole team!

Last night I hosted the VMA’s! Yes the one with the dystopian world theme. Oh wait, that’s reality, no theme necessary! Haha… you guys, I have no idea how any of this was pulled off. I‘m sure you all know how hard it is to work during a pandemic, the amount of hoops we had to keep jumping through translates into taking over 20 COVID tests every other day and intensive quarantine for myself and my whole team! There were so many amazing acts that we were excited to see win and have preform but COVID regulations made some things impossible. Understandably so, safety comes first!! 💕 I’m still so excited for all the winners and performers and proud of @MTV for caring about the music and still putting on this show! I know it’s just entertainment and that can’t solve our problems, but when things are especially bleak, I feel sometimes that’s what you need the most! It’s my favorite part of what I do, the opportunity to provide relief/joy. Thank you for watching, Lady Miss, Lil Thad AND Chelsea Barbie Taylor had a blast at the awards, they can’t wait for their own shows. 🙄😭😍🤩❤️✨ Again, huge thank you to my team for seeing this through!! I couldn’t have gotten through this new system without you @bigbillyclark! Same goes for you @austagram! The state wouldn’t have let me do anything if anyone even on my team was slightly under the weather. We saw it happening lol so I thank them all for staying on point and appreciate NYC for letting us show out. Until next time kids ❣️
” There were many outstanding acts that we were excited to see win as well as have preform yet Covid policies made some points difficult. Not surprisingly so, safety precedes !! (sic)”.
And Keke hopes the program brought some lightness as well as enjoyment to everyone at once where “things are especially stark”.
She added: “I’m still so excited for all the champions and entertainers and proud of @MTV for appreciating the songs and also still placing on this program! I know it’s just home entertainment which can’t resolve our problems, but when things are especially grim, I feel occasionally that’s what you require one of the most! It’s my favourite part of what I do, the opportunity to give relief/joy. Thanks for viewing … Once again, substantial thanks to my team for seeing this through!! I couldn’t have actually made it through this new system without you @bigbillyclark! Same opts for you @austagram! The state would not have let me do anything if any individual even on my team was somewhat under the weather. We saw it taking place lol so I thank them all for remaining on factor as well as appreciate New York City for letting us show out. (sic)”.
