Alicia posed for the June issue cover of London-based arts and culture magazine, FAULT. Alicia embraces her stripped-down, #nomakeup look in the cover shoot, explained in her recently released Lenny Letter about no longer feeling pressured to fulfill society’s idea of “perfect.” Alicia also touched on the idea in the FAULT magazine interview.
“I’m learning to try and let go of the word ‘perfection,'” Alicia says when asked what her “FAULT” is. “It’s not real and it’s a word that tears us down. There is no way to be perfect and no fun in being perfect. You can’t be happy unless you let yourself be vulnerable and make mistakes because we’re always evolving. No one knows it all and I damn sure don’t know it all! I force myself to look in the mirror and own who I am and to own MY beautiful.”
