Oh Alicia..

Alicia Keys

I was casually minding my own business when I came across this photo of Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber… but wait. That’s not him. At all. It’s Alicia Keys aka Miss Beatz.

Now who on earth persuaded this beautiful lady to go ahead with a bowl cut.  I knew people who had that at school. This was in the early 90’s. And they were mostly boys. Who couldn’t afford to go to a barbershop.

I’m all up for switching up a person’s look every so often,  and truth be told, Alicia’s first short cut was pretty cool. But this is an abomination. To paraphrase one of her songs, this is Unthinkable.  To (almost) paraphrase another of her songs, This Hair is (not) on Fire.

Somewhere, Mashonda is laughing to herself so hard. She might even be responsible for these memes. Swizz, come get your girl and have a long talk with her. Please.
