Alicia Keys has a lot to say about life in this interview. She opens up about being a woman, the loss of friends and learning how to be a fighter everyday in life. She is definitely on FIRE! Here are a few excerpts from the article.
“The whole freaking world is looking at your [stuff]. It’s scary. I didn’t want to say every single thing because you don’t want people to know that. There’s personal and there’s public, and I deserve the right to have a personal space.”
“I felt like a girl misunderstood that no one really knew. I felt like it was time to stop making excuses for any part of my life that I wanted to change. Once I made that choice I became a girl on fire, the lion broke free!”
“I was recording since I was 15. By the time the record came out, I was 19. And since then, it’s been on.”
“Becoming my new self, some people didn’t understand me anymore. Some people who I knew for years —we couldn’t be on the same page anymore. That’s OK because that’s part of growing up.”
