R+B beauty Alicia Keys cites Prince as one of her idols because he's "not afraid of his masculinity" - but warns potential suitors she'll never date a man who wears make-up.

The FALLIN' singer encourages men to follow Prince's example and physically express themselves in a unique style.

However, she regrets she could never be attracted to a man who fully embraces his feminine qualities.

She says, "I love Prince - he's not afraid of being crazy. He's not afraid of his masculinity.

"I think guys should do whatever they want to do. Now, do I want a guy who wears make-up? I don't know if I would like to walk down the street with my man wearing eye-liner. I might feel a little strange about that."
