Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz Gets A Blessing For Their Child In South Africa

Posted by on Jun 21, 2010 in Celebrity Couples, Celebrity Pregnancy, Celebrity Sightings | Comments Off

The Zulu tribe of South Africa bestowed their blessings on the unborn child of Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz during a charity trip for Keep A Child Alive, co-founded by Alicia Keys. The organization provides support for children affected by HIV/AIDS. Although I’m not a fan of her music or her private life, this is the one area where I have always admired Alicia Keys. I will also say, Alicia seems to bring out the best in “Swizzy”:

Swizz couldn’t get Ezimbuzini, the slum we visited in Soweto, out of his mind. He immediately got up early [one] morning and bought clothes for the ENTIRE village!!! Wooooowwww! He had promised he would go back and when he came back, everyone was SO excited to see him! “SWIZZYYYY!!!!” They yelled!!! And with the help of the beautiful residents, along with the people he brought with him to deliver the gifts, everything was perfectly organized and everyone got something new to wear! The whole village was ecstatic and grateful that he showed them so much love and his presence proved to them that our support wasn’t just temporary.” {Source}

Does Alicia Keys Take A Jab At Rihanna in Elle Magazine’s July Issue?

Posted by on Jun 18, 2010 in Celebrity Interviews, Celebrity Quotes | 5 comments

Rihanna is on the cover of Elle Magazine’s July Issue.  Also in the issue is Alicia Keys who is featured in Elle’sRock of Angels: Women in Music 2010Keys had the following to say:

My look isn’t plotted out, like, I’m going to have red hair because it’s a new record. It has to be genuine, not a branding concept.

Some sources have suggested that Keys was talking about Rihanna. I doubt it. But I do think Keys is teetering the line since a lot of singers are big on branding themselves these days. Careful, don’t want to get all high and mighty.  Check out the rest of the interview and what Keys had to say about her music and collaboration with Jay Z. [Source]

Swizz Beatz Excited About Pregnancy, Made Peace With Ex-Wife

Posted by on May 31, 2010 in Celebrity News | 2 comments

I guess Swizz Beatz should be a really happy man these days.  Beatz and Alica Keys are engaged and expecting their first child and he apparently made peace with his ex-wife, Mashonda.  He told the New York Daily News while on vacation in St. Tropez, “I’m super-excited.  People are calling me from Dubai and Japan. We haven’t set a wedding date, but we will. We’re just letting  everything flow.”

As far as the “peace” that’s been reported, Mashonda’s lawyer, Bernard Clair, confirmed that she received Beatz’ child support check for $334,000.  I suppose that would bring most people some peace. The picture below is of Keys at the Keep A Child Alive Black Ball at St. John’s in London several days ago.

I guess Alicia Keys was catching on that no one was being fooled by her attempt to cover her baby bump.  According to E! Online and other soucres,  Alicia Keys’ rep confirms that Keys and her fiancee, Swizz Beatz, are expecting their first child together and plan to be married later on this year.  These two have been in the media spotlight for months now (and it’s not just because of their music).  A lot of controversy has surrounded Keys and Swizz Beatz because of their alleged one and half year affair while Beatz was still married to R & B singer, Mashonda. The picture below is Keys hiding her baby bump last night at a charity gala in London.
