Pass Or Play? Alicia Keys Gets Emotional, Shows Off Her Toned Arms And Rips Off Her Wig In “Brand New Me” Video
If you haven’t checked out Alicia Keys’s new album, Girl On Fire, as of yet, you’re missing out on the awesome-ness that is “Brand New Me.” The song about introspection and change is probably the best track on Girl On Fire, and it’s definitely a fan favorite. In the clip for the song, Keys starts out in a huge curly wig, glasses on, coming off quiet spoken and submissive to a man that we can only guess plays a significant part in her life. As he walks away, commenting on how he likes the Alicia he sees, she starts to sing about finding herself and finally being free. By the end of the video, Keys even rips off her bountiful wig in a very dramatic move to show off that asymmetrical cut we’ve grown accustomed to, tears coming down her face and emotions high. In the end, she looks at the guy as he has no choice but to accept her “change,” and she smiles at her new happiness.
It’s an uplifting video and song, directed by Diane Martel (the woman behind “If I Ain’t Got You” and “Like You’ll Never See Me Again” for Keys) and it’s nice to see Keys be so open and vulnerable. And not to be a Debbie Downer, but was anybody else thinking she looked adorable with the big hair? Sorry, I just kind of miss it. And on another style note, I was loving the black jumpsuit, and shout out to trainer Jeanette Jenkins who has Keys’s arms looking so very toned and awesome these days. But now that you know what I think about the clip (and other random things I noticed about it), check it out for yourself and share your opinions below. Thanks!
