Alicia Keys: “As A Mother, I Am A Lioness”


Grammy Award-winning singer Alicia Keys covers the February issue of Allure and opens up about her political views, women’s rights and her decision to be makeup-free, and being a “lioness” for her two sons – Egypt, 6, and Genesis, 2 – with husband Swizz Beatz.

On her decision to be makeup-free: “I started at 20 years old in this ridiculously invasive world [the music business] in which everyone covered me in makeup and then threw me under tons of lights, so I’d sweat for two or three hours….It took me so long to finally say, ‘Whoa!’ Who am I under there? That is just my own personal quest.”

On inner beauty: “I think there’s something really beautiful about what resonates from within us. One thing I’ve heard more than ever is this glow that people refer to that I have. I kind of recognize that glow because I’ve begun to listen to myself inside. And I think there’s something really powerful that happens when you start to listen to yourself. It makes you feel more aware. In touch. More confident. I’m not more confident because I think I’m better than, but because I’ve been hearing myself more, listening to myself more. And that’s taken a little minute to arrive at that place. But there’s definitely something powerful about the way your inner feels that reflects on the outer, on your skin. That, to me, is real beauty.”

On women’s rights: “I am all about a woman’s right to choose. I think a woman should do anything she wants as it relates to her face, her body, her health. Whatever mode of expression that empowers you, that’s what you should do. What I am not down for is this ridiculously high, unrealistic expectation about appearance that we as women are held to.”

On what annoys her: “One of the big ones is that I was so sick of the way women were forced to feel inadequate in many different circumstances or forced to feel insecure by the way we’re portrayed or the way we look. Another one: I am so annoyed at the way we force boys to be fake strong—don’t cry, don’t be soft. Let a boy be able to dance! Let a boy paint his nails. So a boy wants to paint his nails. Who cares! All these strange, oppressive ideas.”

On her political views: “The We Are Here Movement [a wide-ranging social-justice organization founded by Keys] will stand in support of Hispanics, refugees, people of color, Muslims, and anyone who feels afraid in the upcoming Trump era. I have a hope that President Trump, as a New Yorker, will have more liberal views than his campaign rhetoric suggests and that in the end our system of justice will prevail. But it does hurt that racism was not a deal breaker for millions in the election. However, as an artist, I expect to continue to use my voice for things that matter, as I have since the beginning of my career. That won’t change. As an activist, I will continue to fight for what’s right. That won’t change, either. It’s time for all of us to be engaged. As a mother, I am a lioness.”

On mean people: “You know what would be really cool? If we stopped offering our opinion unless asked. If nobody asked you, keep your mouth shut! Like with the Internet? That’s just too much opinion. People are mean. It’s a sickness.”

Beyoncé’s Mini Makeup Artist


Someone got into mommy’s makeup!

Pop superstar Beyoncé Instagrammed an image of 4-year-old daughter Blue Ivy with a full face of makeup. Donning a pink sequin dress, the preschooler was seen applying pink lipstick to complete her look.

On Monday, the Grammy Award-winning singer, 34, shared a shot of husband, rap superstar Jay-Z, and their daughter holding the Super Bowl.

Last week, the Bootylicious hitmaker posted pics of her daughter and good family friend, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, backstage at Super Bowl 50.

The proud mama – who performed at the halftime show – previously posted some pre-game pics.

As well, Martin’s estranged wife Gwyneth Paltrow shared an adorable image of their 11-year-old daughter Apple holding hands with a fashionable Blue Ivy.

Gwyneth Paltrow: “I Let My Daughter Wear Makeup Around The House”


While discussing her new partnership with skincare line Juice Beauty, Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow opened up to Yahoo! Beauty about her makeup-obsessed 11-year-old daughter Apple.

The Iron Man actress, 43, also talked about raising both her kids – including 9-year-old son Moses – in a “pretty balanced house.”

On if she was into makeup and beauty in your 20s: “I was never into makeup and beauty in my 20s. My daughter is the exact opposite of me—she’s basically a fledgling makeup artist. She watches YouTube and all that and loves makeup, which is another reason I’m so happy that this line is going to come out because she likes to play with makeup and I prefer it to be nontoxic.”

On if her kids are into the health and wellness stuff: “We are a pretty balanced house. I mean, kids eat sugar. That’s how it goes. So we have organic snacks and we have Oreos, too, so… [Laughs]”

On allowing Apple to wear makeup in the house: “I let my daughter wear makeup around the house, because she really loves it, but she also does special-effects makeup and she loves to experiment and she’ll do really wild things or she’ll, like, do some Snapchat person with rainbows down the face. I don’t even know what that is; you’re apparently even too old to know what that is. Sometimes like if we’re going to a party she’ll put on some mascara and then take it off so there’s like a hint. So she’s allowed to do that, but she’s a bit young for, you know, a full face.”

On when Apple will be allowed to wear makeup outside the house: “I’m not sure what the appropriate makeup age is, probably, I don’t know, 14? Is that too old? Too young? I’ll have to do research I think.”

On teaching Apple about beauty: “I just hope that my daughter always feels beautiful. And I think that absolutely comes from the way you regard yourself and hold yourself. I think there’s [sic] so many women who might not be classically beautiful but who just are so beautiful—they’re so alluring because you can just tell they’re so into themselves, you know, in a good way. So I hope she has that quality.”

On if she’s shielding Apple from society’s unrealistic beauty standards: “Right now in our culture we have so many different beauty standards. And while I think that some of them are impossible or stupid or unsafe even, we do have now more than ever a much wider range in what’s beautiful. So that gives me hope that as she continues to age that she’ll feel comfortable with whatever body she was given and that she won’t feel shame about it. I think there are so many different role models now—so many different sizes, shapes, colors, and it’s pretty wonderful. It’s not like when I was a kid and we we are all trying to look like, I can’t even remember who, but it was a much narrower ideal of beauty.”
