Alicia Keys Is Blessed with Her Son

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Celebrity Babies, Features,

Alicia Keys with her son and Swizz BeatzAlicia Keys feels blessed she has a "good" child.

The "Girl on Fire" singer has a 23-month-old son, Egypt, with husband Swizz Beatz and while she admits the tot can be hard work at times, she knows she's lucky to have a son who is generally well behaved.

"I want him to be great and there's a time for everything so we go through a lot of emotions but it's mostly all love, which is the most important thing. But he's a good one, he's really good - I definitely got a good one!" she said.

Alicia also says Egypt is starting to take after her when it comes to music and has already started playing the piano: "He'll be two next month and he has a huge personality - he's just incredible. He loves to play the piano and he loves to dance. He's just a joy. I haven't got him doing the scales just yet, and I don't want to be that type of mother but I have observed that when he's playing the piano against another child of his age, the other child is like bang, bang, bang and he's different. So he has good construction in his fingers so maybe it's just natural."


‘Caged Lion’  Alicia Keys

Alicia KeysAlicia Keys felt like a "caged lion" before starting new album Girl on Fire.

The "New Day" singer had lots of tension built up inside her before she started work on her fifth record, which she is now releasing in the studio. "I'm in the studio right now working away on my new album and I am SO excited!!! I'm ignited!!! I'm like a match to a flame! Before making this record, in some ways I felt like a lion locked in a cage... I felt like a girl misunderstood that no one really knew, I felt like it was time to stop making excuses for any part of my life that I wanted to change. Once I made that choice I became a Girl on Fire, the lion broke free!! (sic)" she wrote on her site.

Alicia mostly recorded the album in her hometown, New York, but traveled to other locations to meet with collaborators. "During the recording process, I mostly stayed in NY but on some cool and memorable occasions, I traveled to different places, and worked with many collaborators, (some old friends, some new).

Generous Billionaire Resurrects Dead Celebs

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Movies, Music, Television, Charity,

Stewart Rahr, a pharmaceutical billionaire, must have really been jonesing for a Lady Gaga tweet.

The mogul donated a whopping $500,000 to assist in AIDS research, thus ending the social networking ban many celebs took in order to raise money.

The Digital Death campaign has managed to get a lot of attention since it started on December 1 ... and from the right people, it seems. Alicia Keys, Kim Kardashian and Elijah Wood were among the stars who digitally died for the cause.

Meanwhile, we're still alive and kicking on Twitter, so follow us for all the latest celebrity gossip.

Kanye’s all-star album line-up for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

M.I.A, La Roux and Alicia Keys, among others, are set to appear on Kanye West’s new album. The ‘Runaway’ rapper announced his fifth album will be called ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ earlier this week, and while Kanye has previously confirmed certain stars will appear - including Jay-Z, RZA and Beyonce Knowles - it seems his guest list is much longer than previously thought. As well as those previously mentioned, Kanye said he’s also been in the studio with Kid Cudi, Mos Def and Santigold and that indie musician Justin Vernon is “all over” the album.

One track which has already been leaked, ‘Lost In The World’, features Justin’s vocals. Kanye’s celebrity album cast could be part of his striving to fill the gap left by ‘King Of Pop’ Michael Jackson’s sudden death last year, a role he sees himself in line to fulfill. He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “With the passing of Michael Jackson, I feel a responsibility to bring things to our generation that can inspire and bring real culture to pop culture. I don’t sleep anymore thinking how we are going to fill this gap, and create something to inspire on the level he did.”

Although Kanye has mentioned a large number of people involved with ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’, he lines are blurred between which artists will appear on the commercially released album and who will appear in his G.O.O.D Fridays series, which has so far seen mainly extended and remixed versions of tracks from the albums featuring a number of rappers and producers. ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ will be released on November 22.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Performances, Videos, R&B / Soul,


“Fallin’” isn’t just something Alicia Keys sings about. During a performance Saturday night, the 29-year-old worried a crowd in New Orleans when she stumbled backward on stage.

Although falls during concerts seem to be commonplace these days, this incident was slightly different. Alicia is currently expecting her first child with fiance Swizz Beatz.

Fortunately, Keys - who managed to keep on performing without missing a beat - and her unborn child are both reportedly fine.

Items Du Jour: Cavalli Goes Crazy, Marc Talks Universes, and Kate Moss Goes Topless

Alicia Keys—Roberto Cavalli reveals that he is “a completely typical man,” in that women drive him crazy. Considering that it’s Cavalli, I’m more inclined to think that he’s the one driving the opposite (and possibly same?) sex crazy.

—Although she’s usually looking sultry and glamorous, Alicia Keys showed up to the Keep a Child Alive Black Ball in London looking frumpy and too layered. She may be aiming for flower petals, but all I see is a feathered animal.

—Even though she’s apparently loaded with cash, Gisele Bundchen and husband Tom Brady need not worry about being sued. A New York judge dismissed a case carried by photographers who claim they were shot by bodyguards at the famous couple’s Costa Rican wedding.

—Supermodel Kate Moss spends some serious vacation time topless on a Caribbean beach with boyfriend Jamie Hince of The Kills. The couple even wore matching bathing suit bottoms!

—Catch a video of Marc Jacobs talking at the Louis Vuitton Bonds Street opening about extravagance, luxury, and… universes.
