Alicia Keys shocked many people online after she revealed that she had allowed her 4-year-old son Genesis to wear rainbow coloured nail-polish.
The woman who is coupled to rapper and producer Swizz Beatz vented on her Instagram page saying, “He’s in the chair and he’s like, ‘I want [a] rainbow.’ So he tells the lady that he wants rainbow colours on his nails. And she brings all of these colours and she paints each nail a different colour. And after she painted his nails, he looked at me and he said, ‘Mommy, I don’t want this on my nails,’” Keys said.
When she asked him why, Genesis explained that people might have problems with it. She added, “Can you believe this? 4 years old. He’s 4!” she said. “And he already understands the concept that someone is gonna judge him because he chose rainbow colours on his nails.” After telling her son that people would love his nails because it showed off his creativity, she encouraged him to keep doing his own thing.
She also told him many men love to paint their nails. The incident left the Grammy-winning singer thinking about how judgemental the world today has become.
“The way I see it, there is masculine and there are feminine energies inside of us all, period,” she said.”It gets concerning to me that we can’t just explore these different sides of ourselves. These different energies that are within us.”
