Alicia Keys is known for her activism and for giving a voice to those who often go unheard. She supports numerous charities, including those that fight against AIDS and advocate for change. Despite her sometimes luxurious celebrity lifestyle, Keys is actively involved in over 30 charities. The "No One" singer frequently uses her platform to speak out on various important social and political issues.
In addition to her charitable work, Keys also expresses her views through art and other means. She recently collaborated with Janelle Monaé on the song "Say Her Name," which sheds light on the horrific killings of black women such as Sandra Bland and Breonna Taylor. The song also features Beyoncé, Tierra Whack, and Chloe Bailey. Keys' involvement in social issues extends beyond her music and charity work. She recently reached out to Ralph Yarl, a black teen who survived a potentially fatal shooting. Keys not only offered him a free ticket to her tour but also said she wants to meet him.
Keys Isn't So Sure About Carting The Kids Around In a Maybach
Because she is a very giving and humble person as far as celebs go, Alicia Keys generally isn't very flashy. Back in March, Keys' husband, Swizz Beatz, gave her a very expensive belated birthday gift. He surprised the singer with a limited edition Virgil Abloh Maybach. The car is very exclusive, with the price tag starting at $500,000. However, according to a new interview with Swizz Beatz, Keys wasn't so into it. According to him, it is still sitting at the dealership.
"I know she's already thinking, are they gonna be on me if I bring the kids to school in this?" Swizz said in the interview. It is quite a sight to imagine Alicia Keys of all people dropping the kids off in a Maybach. Then, Swizz revealed the reason he knew for a fact that wasn't feeling the car. "You know when the word interesting starts coming out..." he joked. "She hit me with the word interesting." What do you think of the car? Can you imagine Alicia Keys driving it?
