Alicia Keys on Short Haircut: “It’s a New Mother Thing”
Imagine how short Miley Cyrus will go, if she has kids.
Alicia Keys gave birth to her son, Egypt, in 2010. She talked to Zap2it about how motherhood has changed her, making her more productive, and helping her to write more intimate songs on her new album, Girl on Fire.

It also led to her new short haircut. "I've heard from a lot of new mothers that they cut their hair too," Alicia said. "I thought I was kind of special and brave, but apparently it's a new mother thing. I had been talking about cutting my hair for awhile and figuring out in which way it would feel right. I put out a song called 'New Day' that's also on my album and I was just like, 'You know what, it's a new day, and I'm cutting this off.' So I did it!"
What do you think of her new short hair? Do you know other new mothers who did the same thing?
