Alcia Keys & Swizz Beatz Attend The Keep A Child Alive Ball

Alicia Keys ‘W Magazine’ Shoot

Alicia Keys is featured in the latest issue of W magazine.  The “No One” singer showcases an edgy and dark look for the photo shoot. This in-depth interview dives into Keys’ music career and how she felt when she first stepped into the industry.

Here’s what Keys had to say about debuting as an artist:

“I just wanted to be who I was, which was like so many other girls I knew. We grew up in the city, had a hard edge and obstacles to overcome, but we were still young and beautiful. I didn’t want to be all dressed up, all made up—I wanted to be myself, which hadn’t been done before.”

“I was a young girl with very strong ideas but no experience. I just knew that everything else I was doing was wrong—that all the suggestions weren’t what was in my mind, they weren’t what it was meant to be.”

“How terrible would it have been if I had come out with some watered-down version of who I am? People fell in love with the real me, and I still feel blessed that that was how the journey began.”

For years, there’s been talk that certain musicians were parts of a secret order called The Illuminati.  Essentially, if you happen to be famous and rich, you got some help from this secret society in order to get there.  Jennifer Hudson spoke openly on the topic and proclaimed that she in fact not a part of the secret society.

“I’m so glad someone brought this Illuminati mess up because only a child of God would address it,” the 29-year-old singer told fans during her Ustream session. “That is the most ignorant thing I have ever heard in my life. And it’s offensive because basically what? The people that are here today don’t deserve to be where they are? What, we didn’t work for it? So I find—and I hate to go there—but I find it’s those that can’t make it that would probably join Illuminati, or whoever that is, to get somewhere.”

Hudson went on to explain that those who believe the Illuminati myth are being foolish. “Don’t listen to that type of stuff, don’t follow that stuff because those people are only luring you in to become a part of some mess like that, so know that you’re only falling victim,” she warned. “That’s their way of gaining [followers]. I’d advise you to stay away from it. Those who are reading it are falling into it. It could not be more untrue.”
