You’ll probably never see Alicia Keys in the streets of New York, pantless, ala Lady Gaga because she doesn’t want to be mistaken for a hooker.
She always wears pants so that she doesn’t get mistaken for a streetwalker and says she does it for her own protection.
She said, “When I was young, it was for protection. It was about being able to walk the streets in a comfortable way. This was the 42nd Street of pimps and prostitutes. So if you put on a dress, you’d instantly be looked at as an object. It made me shy away from that. Besides, pants are just as sexy.”
I don’t think anyone would mistake her for a prostitute now, she’s Alicia freaking Keys. Besides that, it gets too cold to go out without pants in the winter time.
