“My favorite thing that people say, when they meet me, is, ‘You’re just like how I thought you’d be.’ I really, really, love that.” – Alicia Keys

I can attest to this!  I met Alicia Keys with my Mom on my 13-year cancer-free anniversary after her show at the Foxwoods Grand Theater.  She couldn’t have been nicer to the both of us even after meeting a bunch of other fans and posing for pics and all of this took place after she performed a whole show.

I love Shayla Lawson’s interview with Alicia Keys for Bustle.  You can tell she’s a fan.  She was lucky enough to see Alicia Keys perform in an intimate setting in Brooklyn before the pandemic.

They get into some of what Alicia shared in her memoir, “More Myself” as well as her new beauty line, “Keys Soulcare.”

AK also reflects on her journey as she celebrates the 20th anniversary of her debut album, “Songs In A Minor” and reveals that she’s working on new music!  She told Bustle, “The next album is a homecoming.”  Maybe she’ll perform some of it along with songs from her current album, “ALICIA” on her rescheduled tour next year!

There is so much wisdom that she shares in this article, including  the quote: “No matter what age you are, nobody knows you better than you.”  You can check it out here and watch Alicia Keys reveal the “Moments That Made Her” in the Bustle video below.
