Alicia Keys has learned how to enjoy life

Nov 21 2012, 5:03am CST | by

Alicia Keys' husband, hip hop producer Swizz Beatz, has taught her how to enjoy life.

Alicia Keys' husband has taught her how to enjoy life.
The 'Empire State of Mind' hitmaker married producer Swizz Beatz - whose real name is Kasseem Dean - in July 2010 and after previously spending her time focussed on work, her spouse has taught her the importance of taking time to have fun and live in the moment.
She explained: ''He has a carefree spirit of how to take a moment and make it really fun and special. He opened my eyes to that. It started making my life so much more fun, enjoyable.
''My husband was the first person who really said to me, 'You're not going to dinner after that big awards show? Why?' It wasn't even a part of my thinking to be like, 'Wow, this is awesome. Look what we did.'
''That wasn't the culture I was brought up in. I was working really hard and I don't know if I expected anything.
''When I began to know my husband, it would be little fun things he would do for me, or his friends. I never knew how he could know so many people.''
Alicia - who has son Egypt, two, with her husband - worked hard at learning the piano and singing lessons from a young age, and is upset with today's culture of entitlement.
She added to Stylist magazine: ''That's what's wrong with the whole world . It p***es me off.
''Like, if you want to learn the f***ing piano, you're going to have to practice. But that's just the nature of our culture; you want it all now.''

The National Anthem, And The National Pastime

Sep 10 2014 2:25am CDT | Source: WNYC Music

This Sunday, Sept. 14, marks the 200th anniversary of the writing of Francis Scott Key's poem, "The Defence of Fort McHenry" — better known today as "The Star-Spangled Banner." And is any national anthem so identified with sports as ours? The association is probably because the song is played before every baseball game, and baseball games are legion. It is even responsible for that oldest of sport ...

15 Notorious Celebrity Gold Diggers: Watch Out For Your Wallet!

Kanye West literally wrote the song about gold diggers, probably thanks to one-time girlfriend Amber Rose (a former stripper married to Wiz Khalifa). Or maybe he wrote it with now-wife and baby mama Kim Kardashian in mind.  Or maybe he just spent a lot of time observing the comings and goings of other notorious celebrity gold diggers. Regardless, here's a tribute to them! 15 Notorious Celebrity Gold Diggers 1. Kim Kardashian Sure, ...
