Armed with a powerful voice and a piano, Alicia Keys completely owned the year At just years-old, her debut album, songs in A minorwould go on to sell more than 12 million copies worldwide and attract five Grammy Awards.
The appearance of the seemingly overnight superstar was subjected to arguably even more attention. Despite possessing looks that could kill with a blink and a smile, Keys was never seen without being covered from arm to leg and her braided and beaded hair earned her the rumor of being a lesbian. Today, at the age of 34, Keys is happily married to Swizz Beatz and mother of two boys.
It might have started in school when I realized that I caught on to things a little quicker, and teachers started to show slight favor to me, or use me as an example. I remember feeling like my friends would make fun of me or look at me as if I was different from them and so… I started hiding. Little pieces at a time.
I definitely started hiding when I got old enough to walk down my NY streets alone. I started to notice a drastic difference in how men would relate to me if I had on jeans, or if I had on a skirt, or if my hair was done pretty. I could tell the difference, I could feel the animal instinct in them and it scared me. And so I started hiding. I chose the baggy jeans and timbs, I chose the ponytail and hat, I chose no makeup, no bright color lipstick or pretty dresses.
I chose to hide. Pieces at a time. Less trouble that way. I remember one interview I gave had strong social thoughts from a book I just read. I felt judged by those reading it. Out came the shell again and me under it. Hiding, piece by piece. Little by little. More and more.
I became comfortable hiding, my intelligence, my physical appearance, my truths, my thoughts, myself. All Rights Reserved.
