Alicia Keys has responded to the criticism she’s received for choosing to go makeup free. The singer-songwriter kept her promise and showed up to the VMAs sans makeup.



Of course,Twitter had something to say about it. One person tweeted, “Alicia Keys really looked like she rolled outta bed wit that fresh face.” Another wrote, “I personally feel like Alicia Keys’ no makeup thing is trite & forced, as in to be the face of something no one asked her to be the face of.”

Twitter user @monielovex tweeted, “It has nothing to do with Alicia keys being barefaced. She looks like she didn’t brush her teeth or even wash her face. Y’all tried it tho.”

Twitter user @ABY_LaRubia wrote, ” Alicia should’ve put something on her face. she looks too plain and don’t come at me with that ‘natural face’ bs.

Alicia tweeted about the backlash, “Y’all, me choosing to be makeup free doesn’t mean I’m anti-makeup. Do you!”
