Alicia Keys is featured in the July 2010 issue of Elle magazine for their Rock of Angels: Women in Music 2010 and she discusses the authenticity of her look and her music:

Alicia Keys Elle

“My look isn’t plotted out, like, I’m going to have red hair because it’s a new record. It has to be genuine, not a branding concept.”

Hmmm…wonder who she may be referring to…

  • Matix B (Brains over Beauty)

    I love her music, but she needs to sit down and worry about her gestation.

  • The "Original" Brown Hornet

    She just steal s husbands…

    Yea Yea Keys STFU! U aint all that!

  • think first

    Well, considering magazines sometimes archive articles before publishing them, I wonder when this was done. Rihanna just dyed her hair so it’s very likely A Keys did this interview before Rihanna dyed her hair. Just throwing some thought out there before I judge.

    i don’t think the pregnant homewrecker was talking about her

    Stay in your own lane AKeys…you have no right to be “throwing stones” at nobody!!!SMDH! When you are great athlete, entertainer or whatever you are, you need not look out of your lane because you are already “trailblazing”. This is why I took what Kobe said last night about Shaq and re-affirmed why I will never like the Lakers/Kobe EVER!. Kobe learned nothing from the LAL Greats that came before him (Jabar, Johnson, etc).

    Black folk need to learn Keep your mouth shut and do you!!! When you are great at what you do, you don’t have time for haters. Haters make your job that much easier and some people just do not get that fact!…SMDH!

  • think

    The article was done before rih-diculous decided to go red….judge her(Alicia) product not her for what she does in her life especially If you really can’t piece together the entire story

  • looks who's talking!!

    miss thing who can’t sing either. nan one of them can sing….rihannna or alicia. howze about you stop being flat every time you sing live alicia? and rihanna quit gargling listerine while you sing and quit saying “eh!”.
    Music is in a state of emergency right now and these ganches are a part of the heart atack that caused it. child bye.

  • summer

  • 504 only dislike childish "adults?"


  • super goon one

    No she just needs to ruin a marrriage now and then….

  • mz.cee


    Truer words havent been spoken, preach!

  • Aphatty

    No – you don’t need red hair, just someone else’s husband and canckles.

  • Clarkekent3000

    She right,so what?

  • why?

    You all are so caught up in the HYPE that you missed the BOTTOM LINE, of which, she is simply saying, SHE ISNT A PRODUCT and DOES NOT HAVE TO BE BRANDED to get a sale!

    THANKS ALICIA! I appreciate your realness and your soulful music! That is why you continue to flourish!

    Education, it is key, trying getting one!
