Alicia Keys Entertainment Weekly

Alicia Keys is on the cover of Entertainment Weekly and discusses her reasons for being a closed-book:

“Ever since I was little, I always felt like if people knew about me, they’d be able to use it against me. I’ve just always been like, ‘If you don’t know about me, there’s nothing you can say to destroy or hurt me.’ So, moving into a career where people are always prying, my instinct has always been to close up. I discovered a lot about myself I didn’t like. I would look in the mirror, and I didn’t know who that person was. I didn’t like my eyes; I didn’t like what they said. I couldn’t sleep. I was uncomfortable all the time, and irritated and frustrated.”

  • MJ

    That explains the lesbo flow..

    I like how shes creating a buzz cuz her album has dropped. Im still buying it though, but no one needs to know all this crap.

    Unlike everybody else, I am not liking how she’s looking these days. Not at all. I’m not sure if it’s too much makeup, old woman hairdo (which is sucking away her youthfulness), sunkin in face, overbite that didn’t seem so pronounced before… somepin. I can’t put my finger on it.

    Of course, she’s still attractive and all, but still… I’m sayin.

    She doesn’t look the same. She doesn’t.

    She is a shining star!!! Lots of folks need to take out their pens and notepads and take notes from Miss Keys!!!

    Use what against her? Why is she so uncomfortable? It seems the media has been nice to her. A lot of female singers have gotten it a lot worse than she has.

    Maybe she is “how you doin”

  • Shining

    Still a wierdo-but she is xtra girly these days like so much so thatit appears she is being fake….anD “bABY pLEASE” she has to wear lots of makeup cause her acne is horrible-she has really bad skin!!!

  • Lady Architect

    No reason to put all your business out there anyway…just keep doing your thing…she looks nice on this cover

  • Shipoopi


  • greenivy

    it’s a great CD ( Listening to it as I write) and she’s doing the damn thing! Great voice, madly talented and SMART (Valedictorian of her high school AND graduated at 16 AND was accepted to Columbia U but went to COLUMBIA RECORDS instead!!) GO A!!

  • Lady In Red

    Like 2 people would care that Alicia Keys was gay. It’s so painfully obvious sometimes. It’s sad she has to live her life as mentioned in quote. But whatever works.

  • greenivy

    She’s been looking great recently. Love the ‘girly look’ BUT I can appreciate that she can switch it up on ya!! I love Miss B but she COULD not rock some of the looks Alicia has rocked. Just b/c she has an ‘edge’ does not make her a lesbo… she just a female you shouldn’t step to :)

  • Hatehaters

    I had this same problem because I thought if anyone found out I was attracted to beautiful women they’d turn against me…I’m just saying I like her ever more and the album is ok I like it.

  • weezy

    Now one says you have to put all your business in the street, but what is it that she feels she has to hide. Her “alleged” boyfriend is nobody famous, no one is going interested in him like that. If JHud can show the world she is with her janitor boyfriend than she can acknowledge her “boyfriend”. Her being evasive causes more speculation and fuels the rumors.
