Alicia Keys Goes Makeup Free for 'V,' Explains Natural Beauty
Here is what the 35-year-old singer had to share with the mag:
On being a working woman: “I think that it’s definitely tricky being a woman. You go to work, and it’s like, if you don’t put on makeup that day people say, ‘Oh, you look so tired!’ It’s not only the entertainment industry, it’s not only the film industry, it’s not only the fashion industry, it’s not only every job that anyone works at or every magazine that everyone has read, it’s a collective consciousness.”
On going makeup free: “There’s nothing you could do to take away this unbelievably innate beauty that lives inside of you as a woman because we are the most spectacular creatures that were ever created. The most incredible thing is that all women are beautiful.”
On music changing minds: “There’s definitely an imbalance, and I think that we’re all feeling that imbalance, to be honest. I love how much we all can identify with music, whether we’re artists or just working at the post office, music is our life.”
