Singer Alicia Keys who has an album, Girl On Fire dropping on November 27 is covering the latest issue of Jet magazine. Inside Alicia gives an in-depth and honest interview about the pre-marriage drama leading up to her highly publicized relationship with Swizz Beatz. Below are some highlights:
On Swizz Beatz and his ex-wife MaShonda being separated before they got together:
“…[They] were apart for some time before we ever got together…that doesn’t matter to those who take pleasure in trying to knock others down…there’s no need to fight what’s not true…“
On her relationship with Swizz Beatz:
“I’d never met a person where I could be fully myself…Swizz and I live in each other’s shadow. So we can occupy the same space and there is nothing but equality. There’s something really powerful about that.”
This issue hits newsstand this Monday (November 19). Alicia will be performing at NYC’s MSG on 12-12-12 for Sandy Relief Concert. In related Alicia and Swizz news, Huffington Post recently named the twosome one of their ‘Power Couples Of The Year’.
