Singer Alicia Keys who swore off make- up for the longest time, covers the February issue of Allure magazine where she talked about her family, music and he decision not to wear make-up.
In the photoshoot for the magazine, she wore little make-up. Read part of the interview:
“Her words, her music, her political
activism—even her decision to do the no-makeup thing (this is the first time she has worn makeup in an editorial photo shoot since last spring) and to let her hair be free—are part of a cohesive whole.
“I’m not a slave to makeup. I’m not a slave to not wearing makeup either. I get to choose at [any]given moment.
That’s my right.” This is a woman who knows her own mind and says and does only what she wants.
It may have taken her a while, in
the category 5 shit storm that is the music business, but boy has she arrived, in a place of self possession, creative autonomy, and power that few popular performers ever achieve.”
