Multi-platinum R&B/Pop singer Alicia Keys covers Marie Claire UK’s July issue. Keys girly glam shoot was shot in the Bahamas and she styled in various color floor length dresses. In the cover story, she talked about her overall first impression on her husband Swizz Beatz, writing “That’s When I knew“, and what she learned from her relationship. Below are some highlights:
On her overall first impression of Swizz Beatz
Swizz will have the fastest car, the biggest jewelery, the loudest jacket; everything with him is really over the top. I used to see him and think, “He is so annoying.”
On writing “That’s When I Knew” for Swizz Beatz
That’s when I Knew” is definitely an ode to my husband… Honestly, I didn’t really like him that much. I thought he was too ostentatious.
On what she’s learned from her relationship
I think we’ve taught each other a lot. He’s taught me to live more fully and I think I’ve taught him to live more deeply..
