Alicia Keys hurt over acne critique

29-year-old singer and songwriter Alicia Keys is one of the most successful recording artists around at the moment. When she struck it big and landed her first hit ‘Fallin’ in the international charts, she suddenly rose to superstardom. A dream come true for many, and surely for her as well, except that it was a difficult time for her, because of her skin problems.

Alicia had battled acne as a teenager, and while being picked on at school is tough, nothing prepared her for the constant and harsh criticism she had to endure from the world.

“When you’re in high school, somebody might say something (about acne) and hurt your feelings,” ContactMusic quotes her as saying. “Well, imagine the entire world looking at you, constantly scrutinising your face.

“I felt really hurt. I knew that you shouldn’t base your (self-esteem) on your physical appearance, so I tried to convince myself that I shouldn’t worry about it, but inside I felt like everyone was attacking me.

“It wasn’t easy at all, but I finally realized that I’m beautiful on the inside regardless of a couple of bumps here and there. Who cares?”

Too right.

Actress Cameron Diaz and singer Jessica Simpson are known to have battled with acne.
