Alicia Keys has been making headlines aplenty since embracing a make-up-less look for her return to the spotlight.
The move, which she says is designed to promote self-love, has earned praise from countless corners. However, a select pocket of people have taken to social media to slam the 15-time Grammy winner for her appearance.
Of such episodes, the latest played out at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards which Keys attended rocking the look above.
Fed up with the shade grenades, the singer’s producer husband Swizz Beatz took to Instagram in the early hours of this morning to hit back.
Watch his response video below…
We wholly agree.
Sadly, the industry has long demanded a specific aesthetic from women; one many have unconsciously bought into to keep up with the status quo.
Hopefully, Alicia’s bold statement goes someway (even if a little) towards creating a more liberal and expressive playing field.
