Talk about natural beauty!

Grammy winning singer Alicia Keys is embracing her real self — and we’re loving it.

Alicia shared in Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter about how worried she was of being scrutinized even as she started off in the entertainment industry:

“One of the many things I was tired of was the constant judgment of women. The constant stereotyping through every medium that makes us feel like being a normal size is not normal, and heaven forbid if you’re plus-size. Or the constant message that being sexy means being naked.”

The singer then dived into how she found a way to meditate and focus on herself in a deeper way, and it was during a photoshoot where she truly learned to embrace her “real” self.


“It was just a plain white background, me and the photographer intimately relating, me and that baseball hat and scarf and a bunch of invisible magic circulating. And I swear it is the strongest, most empowered, most free, and most honestly beautiful that I have ever felt.”

As if you needed another reason to love Alicia, amirite?!
