Bearing It All.
Alicia Keys decides to go make up free #NoMakeup as apart of her new album promotion. Much like in the picture above which has been circling the social media airwaves and the video below, Alicia is holding to this movement. Alicia Keys recently performed on SNL wearing no makeup, showed up to a few concert dates, no makeup, and in her latest musical video, wearing no makeup. Fans were wondering what was going on, some were even questioning if she was sick, or breaking out.
Some people can be ridiculous, but I guess if you’ve never seen your favorite artist without make-up and you start seeing them in this manner, heads will turn. In Alicia Key’s case, its a good head turner. The lesson here? Love yourself and if you feel empowered to let your flaws show, then let them show and let the world catch up to you.
Alicia Keys Says;
“I’d just come from the gym, had a scarf under my baseball cap, and the beautiful photographer Paola (never met a Paola I didn’t like) said, “I have to shoot you right now, like this! The music is raw and real, and these photos have to be too!
I was shocked. Instantly, I became a bit nervous and slightly uncomfortable. My face was totally raw. I had on a sweatshirt! As far as I was concerned, this was my quick run-to-the-shoot-so-I-can-get-ready look, not the actual photo-shoot look. So I asked her, “Now?! Like right now? I want to be real, but this might be too real!!”
And that was it. She started to shoot me. It was just a plain white background, me and the photographer intimately relating, me and that baseball hat and scarf and a bunch of invisible magic circulating. And I swear it is the strongest, most empowered, most free, and most honestly beautiful that I have ever felt.” Full Letter Here
Alicia Keys HeadWraps;
Alicia has been wearing head wraps since she started her career. Head wraps are Afrikan tradition. Being part Afrikan Alicia now embraces that side more so than ever before. Her wraps make it easier to be free. You’d agree if you tried it.
