Grammy-winning singer Alicia Keys said in an Instagram video that she was frustrated that her 4-year-old son didnt want to be seen in public with a rainbow manicure and lamented the judgments and stereotypes that are provoked when men want to express their feminine energy and vice versa.
Hes in the chair and hes like I want rainbow. So he tells the lady that he wants rainbow colors on his nails, Keys explained. And after he painted his nails, he looked at me and said Mommy, I dont want this on my nails. And I was like why? You were so sure. You were good. And he was like, People are not going to like it.'
Can you believe this? Four years old! Hes four and he already understands the concept that someones going to judge him because he chose rainbow color on his nails, Keys said, explaining that she encouraged her son by telling him that so many men paint their nails.
And I said plus you know a lot of guys paint their nails. This is not like some strange thing that you only do. He was like really? I was like yeah so many. So many. And that made him feel better, but it just got me to thinking about how completely judged we are all the time, she said.

Alicia Keys. Grammy-winning liar.
How about a kid (or adult) who won’t wear a MAGA hat because somebody won’t like it (and assualt them)?
I call BS on the details of this story. Once again, using a child as a wedge against those not in agreement with the adult.
She has less sense than her 4-year-old son.
Perfectly normal curious little boy. He enjoyed the novelty of the colorful nails, knows it makes him look silly so now he wants the polish taken off. Take the polish off, Mom. Allowing him to have the rainbow colored nails means you are a good Mom, allowing him to have them removed right away means you are an even better Mom!
I don’t know any men who paint their nails. I guess I’m just lucky.
At 4 years the kid has some sense?
Well, he’s a guy, so.....
She’s an Obama lover.
Call Child and Family Services. This child needs to be removed from this home.
He thought he wanted all those colors. Then once it was all done, he took a good look. Hmmm...
Give the boy credit, he’s thinking about how other’s will view him. Many kids figure out society’s little rules very early.
Sounds like the kid is a lot smarter and more perceptive than his mom...
I’ve never known a guy who painted his nails-I wouldn’t go out with one who did, either-and the guys I work with certainly don’t-they would be laughed off a jobsite if they did...
Bruce, the guy who does my hair, Pat, the guy who designed our apartment, and hey, what about Ariel here who just painted your nails?
“Rainbow — cool!”
“Momma, people are gonna think I’m a fag.”
He is self-aware at a young age-smart kid...
From the mouth of babes!!!
One look and he said, ‘gay’.
Mom used to have a hairdresser called Mr. Eddy.
I gather it was common to put “Mr.” in front a male hairdesser’s first name.
