Swizz Beatz Flosses For PAPER Mag: “It’s Time People Know Who My Friends Are And Who I’m Affiliated With”

- By Bossip Staff

On his wife Alicia Keys:

During the interview, he plays me a track called “I’m A Star.” Swizz produced it, rapped on it and Legend sang the hook. It also features some very skillful piano playing. Swizz goes into
great detail about the song and its meaning, but when I ask him who’s on piano, he very shyly,very quietly says, “Oh, that’s Alicia.”

Alicia Keys is one of the most popular singers in the world, and just so happens to be his wife. But unlike some of his other high-profile friendships, Swizz keeps his marriage close to the vest. During the interview he ignores every incoming message and call on his Blackberry, except for one. “Pardon me for one second,” he says. “It’s my wife.”

While he’s reluctant to talk too much about Keys, he does admit that her superstar status has its perks: “Being married to a public figure made people take a second look at me.” And sometimes, he says, the second look isn’t from his fans, but hers. “I know who my fans
are and I know who her fans are that come up to me,” Swizz says with a laugh. “I’m cool
about it, I’m happy to have some of her fans coming to say what’s up.”

Must be nice… Mashonda’s fans coming up to him were probably few and far between.

Paper Magazine’s Music issue hits stands Wednesday — Santigold and Joe Jonas also made alternate covers, while Kelly Rowland and Theophilus London are also featured in the issue.
