Yesterday, Alicia Keys debuted the video for her hot as fire single, “Girl on Fire” on 106 and Park. Asked for some background on the song, an excited Alicia Keys said, “The evolution of “Girl on Fire” came from me wanting to always be able to declare that I’m a Girl on Fire. Sometimes we don’t always feel like that. Sometimes things get difficult. But even in a world that’s filled with catastrophe, we not backing down and we got our head in the cloud.”more..
This day not only marks the day of New York City’s Snowpocalypse of 2010, it’s also Monster Monday. In honor of that momentous occasion, Swizz Beatz released a song by Alicia Keys and Eve called “Speechless.” If you don’t find the Egyptian inspired artwork interesting, how about that combination: Alicia Keys and Eve. Is this an appetizer for things to come in 2011?
Slow down, there’s not any official new A. Keys material on the way, in her words, “Speechless is a little freestyle treat 4 the holidays. It’s not a new album, not a single its something special 4 U!”more..
One of the benefits of being married to an R&B/pop star is the new found access to the family photo stash.

It’s official, on Saturday, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz exchanged wedding vows on the coast of Southern Italy. The picture up top says it all: it was pretty much the ending of any romance movie. Swizz Beatz (via Twitter) summed up the moment with one word: “Wowwwwwwwwww.”

On December 18, Alicia Keys was on hand at M2 Mansion in NYC for a release party for her stellar new album “The Element of Freedom.” If you don’t have it yet, you need to get off your computer and beat a path to Target/Walmart/Best Buy or pop a tab, click up an online shop and fill a shopping cart. Point is: forget the freebies, good music deserves better dollars (especially these days) and Alicia Keys cooked up something phenomenal for these cold winter months.
On a completely non-musical angle I can tell you listening to the album I wasn’t sure if Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz were still making their lo-pro relationship happen. Oh sure, throughout the album there is the sound and feel of a woman smiling in the glow of a new love, but who that love is I felt was up for question.more..
Alicia Keys has David Letterman sprung on that good stuff. Last night, A. Keys made her umpteenth appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman to perform “The Thing About Love.”
I’m loving that look: fine + fabulous = without even trying.
Didn’t catch the couch time, but Alicia Keys’ piano plunking is ready to go.more..
Over the last few months Mediafakedyouout has posted rumors that Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz are secretly dating. In fact the NY Post’s Page Six once ‘spotted’ them having lunch in Los Angeles. This friendship is the rumored reason Swizz Beatz and his wife Mashonda are getting a divorce.

From a (black) man’s point of view, that would have been all that’s needed to say about Alicia Keys performance at the BET Awards. Then just as Alicia Keys shook her hip, for what looked like the freeze, she upstaged herself - changed the story - by bringing out SWV, En Vogue and TLC.
Last night, Alicia Keys was a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman. With two dancers/backup singers she performed her new single “Teenage Love Affair.” We’ll step past the dancing and singing. The blurbable part of the appearance was Alicia Keys telling a story about her solo trip to Peru on New Years Eve.
It seems as though Alicia Keys escape to Egypt wasn’t a one-off thing. She said she is going to take those kinds of vacations every year to give herself a break from celeb life.
What I don’t understand is Alicia went solo on New Years Eve, but she thinks of Kerry Brothers as someone she would marry? On a “big” day like New Years Eve, shouldn’t it then be a WE vacation.
