Alicia Keys explains why she dressed like a tomboy during a recent interview. She says she found it hard adjusting to fame because people expected her to dress in a feminine way.
“When I first got into the business, people were saying, ‘Why are you such a tomboy?’ I was a tomboy because I thought I had to protect myself. As a young lady you have to be careful. I felt any time I called attention to myself, it would bring unwanted attention. I didn’t want attention like that so I shrank away from it. It was a while before I became comfortable as a young lady to be able to dress more feminine.”
Alicia Keys says he had to pack a knife in her hood on a regular basis and I could definitely see AK shanking someone up without hesitation. AK says in the interview:
“Protection was a big issue. You felt more comfortable with a knife. I felt if someone tried to touch you I would have something to surprise them.”
Nothing wrong or suspect with wanting to dress up like a dude. SMH.
