Alicia Keys, the accomplished US-singer and multiple Grammy winner, shared her introspective perspective on aging in a recent interview with 'The Cut'. At 42, she reflects on the enriching experiences and wisdom that come with age, demonstrating a deep appreciation for the evolution of the self.
Embracing the Aging Process
Keys, known for her raw talent and soulful music, expressed a distinct fondness for growing older. To her, aging is synonymous with becoming smarter and more cognizant of her thoughts. This heightened awareness, she believes, allows her to seek less validation from others and grow more comfortable in her own skin.
Beauty Enhances with Age
The 'Fallin'' singer further delved into her ideas of beauty, emphasizing that it only enhances with age. She recalled her headline-making moment years ago when she confidently walked the red carpets without a trace of makeup. That bold move was a statement of self-acceptance and authenticity, something she believes strengthens as one ages.
A Journey from Hell's Kitchen to Grammy Wins
Born and raised in Hell's Kitchen, New York, Alicia Keys was signed to a record deal as a teenager. Her debut album 'Songs In A Minor' released in 2001, catapulted her to fame, leading to five Grammy wins and establishing her as a global music icon. As she ages, her heart opens more, her strength magnifies, and she becomes more authentically herself, resonating deeply with her audience and living up to her reputation as a role model for many.
