Alicia Keys: I want my hair even shorter
Alicia Keys recently chopped off most of her hair, and the singer is looking to go even shorter.
The R&B superstar debuted her bob hairdo this summer. In a recent interview, Keys said she wants to go “even shorter.”
When asked if she would shave her head, the 31-year-old replied: “I’m thinking about something like that. I’m telling you. I’m going there. I’m doing it.”
The Grammy-winning Keys arrived on the music scene in 2001 with braids, and she mostly has worn her hair long.
She says with her new cut, she’s able to do more with her hair.
Another man sues ex-Elmo puppeteer
Another Florida man is suing the former Elmo puppeteer who resigned amid sex-abuse allegations, claiming the voice actor befriended him in Miami and promised to be a father figure before flying him to New York to have sex with him.
The purported victim is the fourth to accuse Kevin Clash, who resigned from “Sesame Street” last month after 28 years. The three legal actions filed so far have been civil cases.
But Monday’s lawsuit could involve criminal charges because the victim claims Clash transported him across state lines for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity.
Attorney Jeff Herman said he encouraged his client to report the incident to authorities, but it’s unclear if the victim had done so.
