Alicia Keys is featured in the December issue of Marie Claire magazine.
In this issue, Keys dishes on her favorite things. She even divulges which celebs she’d love to have dinner with.
On her greatest joy:
“My family. I lie in bed with my husband [music producer Swizz Beatz] and son, Egypt, and have little musical moments, which I love.”
On her most worn clothing item:
“I have this vintage Harley-Davidson motorcycle jacket. When I put it on, it has this super cool feeling to it.”
On who her ideal dinner party guests would be:
“Bono, Sheryl Sandberg, Michelle Obama, Tina Fey, and I wouldn’t mind Chris Rock. Definitely my husband, too.”
On the best advice she received from a friend:
“A friend once told me that all I need is three chords and the truth to make a great song.”
On the personality trait she has that people don’t know about:
“People don’t expect me to be as funny as I am.”
The dynamic duo are at it again.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler cover the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.
The pair are gearing up to host the 2014 Golden Globes on Jan. 12 and they’ve got a lot to say.
Amy on why she and Tina are like The Olsen twins:
“When we’re next to each other we like to hug each other a lot, like we’re in the womb. And Tina’s thumbprint matches my pinkie, because that’s what we were like in the womb.”
Tina on the same Olsen twins theory:
“But I do say the Olsen twins because unlike a lot of comedy duos, we’re not opposites. There’s a lot of overlap in what we like and even in the way we perform, to a certain extent. We’re not Martin and Lewis. We’re like Derek Jeter and A-Rod.”
Amy on her Golden Globes plans:
“We’re going to encourage people to go real long on their speeches.”
Tina on her Golden Globes plans:
“I’m going to tell people to find it. Don’t stop talking until you ‘find it.'”
Amy on who they’d want on stage with them at the show:
“I feel like we’d probably pick an SNL person because we feel comfortable knowing that they could hang. But who knows? Maybe we give that kid Jennifer Lawrence, who I find a total delight.”
“She was hilarious on ‘The Daily Show. Honestly, almost every person we’ve ever worked with, I feel like we’d be super-psyched to see.”
The Golden Globes have locked in its hosts for the next two-years.
Comediennes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have inked deals to host the next two Golden Globe Awards, beginning with the January 12, 2014 show.
The ladies were first asked to return over the summer, following the pair’s first successful stint as hosts for the show this year. With Poehler and Fey hosting, it was one of the most watched Golden Globes ever.
“Tina and Amy are two of the most talented comedic writer/performers in our business and they were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season,” said NBC’s alternative programming president Paul Telegdy. “We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.”
SNL is starting its 39 season off with a bang!
