In an interview with Time Out New York, Alicia Keys opened up about her decision to stop wearing makeup, saying she had no clue it would be such a big deal. She said,

“I promise you I had no idea that it would be such a touchstone. I was just sharing this revelation: I realized I’d been covering up in so many ways. What if I don’t want to put on makeup, heels, get all dressed up?  We’re trying to break out of our inherited stereotypes and misinformation. It’s screwing us all up. I’m trying to work on loving myself the best that I can.”

Good for her!  I like her new stance.
