I don't know why Black Berry just hired her as "Director of global creativity" or whatever they're calling it... Appears she's an iphone loyalist...

Talk about a hack article and taking quotes out of context.

Nothing she said makes her a
quote:

racist conspiracymonger:
and she never said she doesn't want white people listening to her music.

quote:

I feel it is necessary to clarify the comments that were made during my recent Blender magazine interview since they have been misrepresented.

Anyone who knows me and my character, knows that I am not a conspiracy theorist or, by implication, a racist. My comments about ?gangsta rap? were in no way trying to suggest that the government is responsible for creating this genre of rap music. The point that I was trying to make was that the term was over-sloganized by some of the media causing reactions that were not always positive. Many of the ?gangsta rap? lyrics articulate the problems of the artists? experiences and I think all of us, including our leaders, could be doing more to address these problems including drugs, gang violence, crime, and other related social issues.?

?Additionally, regarding the AK-47 reference, AK-47 is a nickname given to me by some of my friends in jest, as an acronym for Alicia Keys and a metaphor for wowing people with my music and performances, ?killing ?em dead? on stage. The reference was in no way meant to have a literal, political or negative connotation.

The recent implications about me are too radical and too dramatic a departure from whom I have continually demonstrated myself to be. I work so hard and give so much of myself to bring about positive change to this world, and I only wish those efforts received as much press and attention as the misinterpretations of the Blender article

I wonder if she'd sing a song for a white president. I saw Brad Paisely sang for Bama

I was thinking of Lauryn Hill that said she didn't want white people buying her music.

No it's not. It just took "all the liberal bias" out of the article.


Didn't you see it's Newsbusters?

I think Alicia Keys is incredibly talented and I don't let artists' politics get in my way of enjoying what they put out, unless it's thrown in my face. Just sing for me. I don't care what you think about the President.

I hated her since the award show years ago when she said she didn't want any white people buying her albums.


And to this point, I've done everything I could to respect her wishes. And I will continue to do so.

If she lip-syncs the anthem, can we take back her appearance fee? I'm not sure why any performer would receive full payment for a recording. It's a recording, pay the royalty fee.

re: I now hate Alicia Keys
There are two women in the last 30 years that have the pipes to put emotion into the National Anthem: Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. Period. Whitney's version of it from the Super Bowl in 91 is powerful and full of emotion without being over the top. Mariah, IMO, has one of the greatest singing voices of all time. (doesnt always translate into great music, but talented none the less.) Doesn't she have 5 octave range?

Blame the overemoting fad of the last 20 years on Celine Dion. Nobody could milk a 5 note line of music for 5 mins like Celine.
