Anyone who does not consider themselves a feminist is "crazy", singer Alicia Keys has said.

The mother-of-two (35) told Elle magazine the movement was about "owning your own power (and) embracing womanhood".

"Yes, I am a feminist, and whoever isn't is crazy," she added.

With Keys set to feature make-up free on the magazine's cover, she said she no longer felt tied to expectations about appearance.

"I know how it feels to have a face full of bumps and pimples - I lived through that in the public eye," she added.

"But when I first got pregnant (with her son, Egypt) I started to eliminate dairy from my diet and drank a lot more water, which made a difference to my skin."
