Swizz Beatz Stands Up For Alicia Keys

Pregnant Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz attend Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

Ever since Alicia Keys‘ Lenny Letter hit the internet, with the singer proclaiming she will be makeup free from now on, people have had a lot to say.

While on the VMAs white carpet this past Sunday, the 35-year-old continued her au naturel mission.

So, of course, a parade of both hate and praise came pouring in.

The 15-time Grammy winner took to Twitter, where she shared a selfie, saying she’s not anti-makeup:

Alicia’s husband, mega-producer Swizz Beatz, rushed to his wife’s defense, saying, “Why are you mad at someone who decided not to put makeup on their face?”

Way to stand by your woman.
