Alicia Keys recently shared a heartwarming backstage moment with her son, Genesis, before her Brooklyn concert on July 12. The playful interaction caught on video shows Genesis expressing his lighthearted disapproval of his mother’s fashion decision, adding a dose of humor to the event.
In the video, Alicia Keys’ eight-year-old son, Genesis, good-naturedly called out his superstar mom for her unique heart-shaped stickers, commonly known as nipple pasties, that she had chosen as part of her outfit for the performance. He seemed to be surprised by the unconventional attire and humorously questioned his mother’s fashion choice.
During the backstage recording, Alicia Keys showcased the close bond she shares with her son. Genesis’ innocent comment, “Are you really gonna do this, mom?” added a touch of candidness to the encounter. Alicia handled the situation with grace and explained that his perspective might be because he’s not familiar with such fashion choices yet, given his age.
In good spirits, Alicia reminded her son that wearing nipple pasties was not a big deal and playfully added, “It’s not a big deal — it’s boobs. Everyone has boobs.” Her lighthearted response highlighted her confidence and empowered attitude towards her body and fashion choices.
Beyond the playful teasing, Alicia Keys’ response conveyed a powerful message about body positivity and acceptance. Her choice to wear nipple pasties as part of her outfit was an expression of her personal style and artistic freedom.
The backstage video showcased the loving and supportive relationship between Alicia Keys and her son. Genesis’ candid commentary brought laughter and warmth to the moment, exemplifying the bond between a superstar mother and her down-to-earth child.
