15-time Grammy award winner, Alicia Keys wears minimal make-up on the cover of Fault Magazine‘s Issue 23.
This is a deliberate move on her part of her learning to embrace her imperfection, she said. She also talked about her album to the magazine. She said
”I’m learning to try and let go of the word “perfection”. It’s not real and it’s a word that tears us down. There is no way to be perfect and no fun in being perfect. You can’t be happy unless you let yourself be vulnerable and make mistakes because we’re always evolving. No one knows it all and I damn sure don’t know it all! I force myself to look in the mirror and own who I am and to own MY beautiful. So what that I have breakouts or so what that my knees are pudgy, there simply is no perfect. Once I can teach myself that there is no perfect and that I am meant to have my FAULTS, that is when I become beautiful.”
