Alicia Keys is gracing the February 2017 issue of Allure magazine and she looks absolutely beautiful (as usual).
Inside the issue, AK talks makeup, motherhood, and her musical evolution. She also gives the 411 on her "We Are Here Movement" saying:
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.
