Did you hear the news? In a deliriously weird ceremony earlier today, Alicia Keys was named the Global Creative Director of BlackBerry, the mobile device of choice for Wall Street bankers and people who love having typos in their emails!
For whatever reason, this struck a particular chord with the public, perhaps due to the… More »

:: Rihanna was caught leaving Hollywood’s Playhouse club with a group of friends on the same night as model Karrueche Tran’s party in honor of her cover story with Rolling Out magazine. Tran is Chris Brown’s on-again-off-again girlfriend, so he was in attendance, although he made zero waves for a change. Rihanna, though, made the… More »
If you’re looking for Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson, the dynamic divas can be found in Park City, Utah this week. The occasion? The premiere of The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete, a film executive produced and scored by the Girl On Fire and starring the Academy Award-winning American Idol alum. The pair shared a giant… More »
Alicia Keys will kick off Super Bowl Sunday in New Orleans on February 3 by singing the National Anthem before the game, according to the AP — though the NFL has yet to confirm the report.

Well, the people have spoken, and here are some of the things they said: “Who?” “What?” “What are we watching?” and “Honey, can you turn that off?” Yes, it was the 2013 People’s Choice Awards, easily the year’s most likably inexplicable hodgepodge of Walgreen’s ads and self-congratulatory mumblespeak, peppered with a handful of noteworthy moments… More »
Alicia Keys’ video for her new single “Brand New Me” sees the singer back where she belongs: Right at her piano! Also, strolling elegantly through various sets and stages, but not doing a whole lot else. Hey, at least she’s not on fire anymore — somebody must have found the extinguisher. She was so inspired… More »
Last night’s Hurricane Sandy telethon, 12.12.12: The Concert For Sandy Relief, was kind of insane, wasn’t it? Charity benefit concerts usually are, in their slapdash everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach to talent, but this one leaned heavily toward classic rock (not our beat) — which made it even more curious (and awesome) when Kanye West delivered a 10-song set wearing a… More »

:: Alicia Keys debuted her sleek, short haircut this summer in advance of Girl On Fire, and we loved it. But now the singer says she wants to go even shorter. When asked if she would ever go the Sinead O’Connor route and buzz it, she replied, “I’m thinking about… More »
After performing on The X Factor UK on Sunday (December 2), Pink stopped by BBC Radio today and gave her British fans another treat, covering Alicia Keys’ hit single “Girl On Fire.” Compared to Keys, Pink is a wild child, and she fittingly transformed the song into more of a rocking anthem, replacing the pianos with distorted… More »
Alicia Keys’ fifth LP Girl On Fire lives up to its title this week, as it debuts at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album arrives in the brief sales lull between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays — in fact, there are no other new entries in the Top 10 this week —… More »
In the past seven days, we saw Rihanna snuggling up with Chris Brown (again), Lana Del Rey giving a dodgy TV performance (again) and Sia performing song she wrote that just happens to be #1 on the Hot 100 this week. Additionally, Lady Gaga revealed she’s apparently been quite productive while penning songs for her… More »
Alicia Keys on Tuesday (November 20) premiered her album Girl On Fire in a Youtube/Google live chat, and during the session she announced she’d be heading on tour with Miguel in the spring. “I think me and Miguel are going on tour together. It’s happening in March,” she said. “Miguel is one of the flyest… More »
Alicia Keys teams up with Maxwell for “Fire We Make,” a steamy little R&B jam from Keys’ forthcoming album Girl On Fire (out November 27) that takes the hot/fire/inferno theme to a new level. The two crooners turn in a pair of simmering verses, with Maxwell’s falsetto absolutely melting everything within range of your speakers,… More »
