Mos def and alicia keys dating
When Alicia Keys (née Alicia Augello Cook) first hit the national stage in 2001 with her debut album Songs in A Minor, she embodied retro chic.
Styled in beaded cornrows, flowing scarves, and flared hip-huggers, she burst onto the music scene like a pop send-up of the ’70s jazz multi-instrumentalist Patrice Rushen.
The headlines, which were once so complimentary, turned sour: “Is Alicia Keys Wrecking a Marriage? "; and, perhaps most damning, “Why Does Swizz Beatz Keep Ruining Alicia Keys?
” Even after Keys and Beatz wed in 2010, after she denied the rumors she interfered in his first marriage in Essence magazine, and after the love triangle made peace (even vacationing together), the notion persisted that her career had been tarnished by the bad publicity.
The intense tabloid attention quickly eroded Keys’ privacy — and the good-girl image she’d enjoyed.Now that Barack and Michelle are gone from the White House, a lot of us are feeling a little bummed out.They look like they're having a blast on vacation and all, but we miss seeing all those romantic, #relationshipgoals moments, like the time he just looked at her with dreamy eyes at a White House State Dinner. I met a couple this week at the Brooklyn Artists Ball that totally reminds me of that kind of (former) FLOTUS and POTUS sweetness: Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz. Of course, she's won 15 Grammys, has sold over 35 million albums and has 30 million singles worldwide.After that ended, Keys began dating Swizz Beatz (born Kasseem Dean), a prolific hip-hop producer known for his work with Beyoncé, Jay Z, and DMX in 2008.The problem was, he was still legally married to R&B singer Mashonda Tifrere.
