Alicia Keys...a conspiracy theorist?

We got a peek at the Alicia Keys cover story from Blender’s May issue, and the lady is full of surprises. Here are some of the things that made us go, “Really?”

· She’s got some, um, theories: ” ‘Gangsta rap’ was a ploy [by the government] to convince black people to kill each other.” She adds that Tupac and Biggie were essentially assassinated, their beefs stoked “by the government and the media to stop another great black leader from existing.”

· One of her new songs might be too hot: “I’m discovering my sexual side. I recorded this song — it’s super-simple — just piano, Rhodes keyboard and a kick drum. It’s so sensual. It moves you.” The story goes on to say that when Keys’ manager heard the track, he said, “We do not record songs like this!”

· Her necklace of choice? A gold AK-47 pendant “to symbolize strength, power and killing ‘em dead.” We weren’t the only ones surprised by her taste in jewelry: “She wears what?” her mother asked the music mag. “That doesn’t sound like Alicia.”

Head over to Blender’s Web site to read an excerpt from the story before it hits stands next week, and check out some dazzling pics from the magazine’s photo shoot after the jump.

tho' I battled blind
love is a fate resigned
memories mar my mind
love it is a fate resigned

Over futile odds
and laughed at by the Gods
and now the final frame
Love is a losing game

Sounds like she's been hanging out with Lauryn Hill.

I don't think they were assassinated but i do agree with her that Gangsta Rap is a marketing ploy aimed at dividing the black community and it worked because those respective artists were killed. Lets face it hip-hop gave black artists a real influential voice for the first time and geniune economic prosperity. What better way to neuter this than having them shooting eachother instead or rising against the real threat and using their power in a positive way. Keep the black community down by promoting violence and instant gratification. I think shes spot on in that sense.

Gangsta rap wasn't invented to bring down the black community; it was made by black people. That was just an "added benefit". Gangsta rap was sensationalism and it came to the forefront because record labels understand sensationalism better than anything and they know how to exploit it for money. That's what its really all about; money. Sell the worst, most violent images and couple that with sex and drugs and what do you get? Lots of people willing to spend their hard-earned money to hear about it. It was a money move. While I have a lot more respect for TuPac than I did for Biggie, neither of these fools were ever going to amount to anything. Pac was an entertainer - nothing more. Biggie was a drug dealer turned rapper. Nothing more. The black community needs to not waste so much time on people like them and focus on giving our attention to real positive black leaders (Barack Obama, anyone?). Alicia should stick to singing and playing and keep her dim-witted "Brooklyn"-yellin' ass mouth shut. She's not smart or articulate enough to argue her beliefs. Drugs was a conspiracy; Pac and Biggie - them niggas got KILLED.
If she wants to work on a conspiracy, she needs to figure out WHO STOLE ALL OF THE SOUL FROM EVERY LAST RECORD SHE'S DONE! Let her contemplate and pontificate on THAT for a little while.

If she keeps this up, there will be no more Grammy cameos from John Mayer on the codas of her pop anthems... She'll be sharing a booth with India.Arie... lol

This is just as weird as Condoleezza Rice talking about America's race problems a couple of weeks ago.

Story doesn't add up.

Lauryn Hill swings towards being as crazy as a road lizard. I think that's the comparison context.

Anyway, Blender is known to be a bottom of the barrel magazine. And Alicia Keys, well. Neither her nor Gangsta Rap stand out in my mind when thinking about relevant things confused

I just bought a new blender.
I like to slam apples, oranges, strawberries & bananas in it to concoct a very thick & satisfying shake which not only tastes great, but also consistantly promotes my regularity.
Now my health be all bangin' 'n' shit.
