Alicia Keys keeps on promo ho’ing… The Grammy winner is on the cover of the January issue of Essence magazine where she admits she can’t be the “Superwoman” she once aspired to be:

“It’s okay if I can’t do every single thing. I finally understand that it doesn’t make me a lesser artist or human being…” –Alicia Keys, ESSENCE

Here’s more more info from the issue:

With her fifth studio album recently released and a worldwide tour to prepare for…Alicia Keys is busy! Here, the 14-time Grammy Award-winning artist, AIDS activist, wife and mom talks to ESSENCE about spiritual makeovers—and how she learned to say no in order to create a more balanced approach to her world. Keys—who lives in SoHo with her husband, producer Swizz Beatz, and their 2-year-old son, Egypt—also talks about being unprepared for Hurricane Sandy. After scrounging through the cupboards, scrambling to find something to eat that didn’t require cooking, she shares: “…After the third or fourth tuna fish sandwich, and after we learned we’d be without power for a week, I called my mother, who lives Uptown. She was okay and hadn’t lost any power, so we ended up going to her house. We were pretty lucky…”

Considering some folks lost their lives and their homes we’d say yes, she and Swizzy and Egypt are very blessed. Will you be picking up this issue? Do you still love Alicia Keys?

The January issue of ESSENCE hits stands on December 7th. For more on this issue, visit ESSENCE.com.
