David Letterman hates tattoos. And we’ll chalk this up to him being an ol’ school player. Alicia Keys stopped by Live on Letterman in beautiful yellow and blue two piece ensemble to perform her relatable ballad “Brand New Me.” But before she could perform the retrospective on finding her voice and identity after a relationship has ended, she chatted with Letterman on family life. Letterman being the anti-tattoo grump he was to Bieber, didn’t quite scold Alicia for her husband’s tattoos, but he did have way too many questions.
The nighttime TV talk show host couldn’t resist commenting on Alicia’s husband, Swizz Beats, tattoos after showing a picture of the family to the audience. “Now your husband has quite a lot of body art,” he said. Alicia quickly informed Mr. Letterman that much of Swizz’s ink was Basquiat, Keith Haring and Shepard Fairey because he’s a huge art buff. Since tattoos are such a big deal to host he had to know, “Do you let your son go ahead and get one?” The conversation continued on respectfully, but we haven’t forgotten how he spazzed on Biebs. Get with the times, Letterman.
