From VIBE–Our current covergirl Alicia Keys opened up about her personal life on Lifetime’s new talk-show series The Conversation
Keys chatted candidly with host Amanda de Cadenet about delivering her son Egypt naturally, and even talked about her love life with husband Swizz Beatz. We knew Alicia was opening up more in this era of her career, but we didn’t expect all that—and we’re pleasantly surprised!
