Alicia Keys is urging fans to pursue “less labels, more expressions” after her son voiced an insecurity about his rainbow nail polish.
In an Instagram video shared over the weekend, Keys recounted to followers how her younger son, 4-year-old Genesis, had been excited to join her at the nail salon, where he decided he wanted each finger to be pained a different color like a rainbow.
“After she painted his nails, he looked at me and said, ‘Mommy, I don’t want this on my nails,'” Keys recalled. “And I was like, ‘Why? You were so sure you were good.'”
“People are not going to like it,” she recalled her son saying.
“Can you believe this?” Keys asked viewers. “He’s four years old. Four. And he already understands the concept that someone’s going to judge him because he chose a rainbow color on his nails.”
