Alicia Keys Was Unconfident About Her Looks

As she came from a very judgmental society, she never felt comfortable about how she was. 

She never accepted the way she was. Her insecurity increased as she started releasing her new albums and performed on the big stage. She used tons of beauty products to look perfect. 

Then as she began to self-learn herself, she noticed that many women think that beauty is all about being thin sexy and having flawless skin. She also went through the same things. 

Then she decided to defeat her insecurity rather than covering up her flaws. She also did a photoshoot in her bare face with no make-over for her new album, and for that, she meditated. 

She was so scared initially, but she felt she was worth it and powerful when the photoshoot started. 

She was delighted that she finally learned to accept her just the way she is.
