Alicia Keys has been able to endure longevity, not only because she produces superb music, but also because she has been able to stare clear of drama in this “crazy business” of entertainment. Understanding that many other artists fall to the devils of the business, Keys recently voiced her admiration for talents younger than her, especially superstar Rihanna.
“It’s such a tricky, crazy business, and when people are a little bit younger than me, I’m always hoping that their soul is good because it can be such a soulless space…,” Keys told UK’s ES Magazine. “I’m proud of Rihanna. Because it’s not easy to stand up in this crazy world and make it and keep going and try new things. And find your way through it.”
Keys also spoke about her relationship with Michelle Obama insisting, “I very much connect with Michelle and we’ve done different things together that have given us so much to talk about – she’s really interested in girls and empowerment too.”
The full interview will appear in Friday’s London Evening Standard

Alicia Keys graces the cover of Marie Claire U.K.‘s July 2013 issue. The story on the R&B superstar will break down “Why she’s setting our world on fire.”
he ‘Girl on Fire’ creator is currently on her world tour and has had to juggle her busy career with being both a wife and mother. In the new issue, she discusses her relationship with husband Swizz Beatz, evolving as an artist and taking on directing.
“You have to speak up. To say, ‘I don’t like that, it’s not cool, don’t do that to me,’ but it’s not easy, especially with people you love,” says the singer. ” I think getting older has made me evolve in a lot of ways and made me more relaxed about saying how I feel, no matter what.”
Keys strikes a few high glam poses in front of a mansion on the beautiful island of the Bahamas for the cover shoot. She’s outfitted in designer looks by Gucci, Diane von Furstenberg, Versace and Just Cavalli.

In case you missed the Alicia Keys episode of VH1′s Storytellers back in 2012, both the CD and DVD versions will be out on June 25.
The collection mines through her impressive archive including unreleased bonus performances of New Day, Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart and Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready).
“Being a part of VH1 Storytellers was such a fun and fulfilling experience,” said Keys in a news release. “It allowed me to do what I love most when I perform, and that’s interacting with the audience and getting to share a little more with them in an intimate setting. There’s a story behind every song — and now I’ve been able to really tell a few of them.”
She reveals the stories behind hits like No One, Fallin’,You Don’t Know My Name, as well as material from her latest album, Girl On Fire. Since the 2001 release of her debut album, Songs in A minor, Keys has sold more than 30 million albums and 25 million singles worldwide.
Alicia Keys took to the stage at London’s O2 Arena on Thursday (May 30) for the first of her two night stint as part of her Set The World On Fire world tour and MTV News UK were lucky enough to witness the voice from New York in action. After a rather energetic set from Miguel – which felt some what wasted on the more mature crowd – the audience sat eagerly anticipating Keys’ entrance. The atmosphere was subdued, yet you could feel the excitement bubbling over as the arena fell into complete darkness, as images of the Brooklyn Bridge were projected onto a stage curtain.
Keys’ silhouette then emerged from behind the veil, causing an eruption from the once laid-back crowd. Teasing her fans with the first bars of Empire State Of Mind, she was dressed in a sheer, sequinned blue top which was slashed to the waist exposing her cleavage. Alicia completed her look with a black trilby-style hat and skin-tight black trousers. She remained in this ensemble throughout the gig, losing her headgear at one point. The set was simple. Just Keys, a variety of different pianos and the occasional video, which was flashed on the screen behind her. While the stage layout was minimalistic, it was also an effective way to showcase Alicia’s stunning vocals. (READ MORE HERE) Watch Alicia perform No One HERE.
