Alicia Keys Shows Off Her New Short And Chic Look For Hype Hair’s November 2012 Issue

For their latest release Hype Hair shines the spotlight on famed singer-songwriter/pianist, Alicia Keys. Ever since her debut single “Fallin” back in the early 2000’s, A. Keys has had us in a trance with her soulful sound, unmistaken beauty, and her jazzy sense of style. Find us a girl who wasn’t inspired to rock wild braided designs on her head from 2001 to 2004 like the lovely Ms. Keys. Since her earlier days, though, her ‘do has gradually transformed from fly braids to long and straight. For the 2012 MTV VMAs, Keys debuted her latest single, “Girl On Fire” live on-stage. Something else she debuted was her fabulous short, sleek and chic look.

Tamar & Vince Covers Rolling Out; Speaks On Love And Keeping It Sexy In The Bedroom

Earlier in the week, rumors hit the Interweb saying that singer and reality star Tamar Braxton and her famed music mogul husband Vince Herbert are headed for divorce after putting their $7.5 million Hollywood mansion on the market. I doubt if those rumors are true! Today,  Rolling Out released their latest issue and both Tamar and Vince are on the cover. Belong are some highlights:

Let’s talk about the show, “Tamar and Vince.” What goes through your head when you’re watching the show?
Tamar: Before it airs, Vince and I both have to see [it], because we are both executive producers and we are very much … involved. There is nothing wrong with having integrity and enlightening people with class, and making sure that we don’t do anything to embarrass ourselves, our marriage, or the businesses that we are both involved in.

Vince, you have a proven track record in music. Tamar is ready to put her album out now. So what’s keeping her album from being released?
Vince: There is no big thing holding us down. I just think when you’re making any record, you want to make sure you did the best job. So when we put the record out, it represents what she stands for, what my record label stands for, and make sure she puts her best foot forward. You want to make a great album and you want to take your time and really make sure that you choose the right songs, and try to make sure that it’s something that your fans will love. You don’t want to throw something together and throw it out there and it’s horrible. That’s not representing myself or her. I wanted her to really have a good shot at what she is trying to accomplish.

Although you guys argue throughout the day, it’s very apparent that you love each other  and the bond between you is strong. Tamar, how can couples prevent things from becoming dull in the bedroom and what keeps that spark alive?
Tamar: Vince and I are really good friends and we keep our lives and communication open. On top of that, I just feel like it’s important to remain a lady. I don’t think  you should always have your head in a do-rag and a scarf. You should remain the girl they saw [on] date night. There’s nothing wrong with going to bed looking pretty or just as good as you do during the day. The communication is the really sexy part of a relationship. Because when you feel like they can just talk to you, it’s very attractive. … You don’t have to dress up, but don’t go to bed looking crazy.
