Alicia Keys is truly a “Girl On Fire.”
In the new issue of Ebony Magazine, the talented mother, who is currently promoting her upcoming album Girl On Fire, opens up about her love for husband Swizz Beatz, whom she claims is her “soulmate.” She also touches on how her son Egypt has changed her life and more.
Check out some excerpts from the revealing interview below!
On finding her soulmate, Swizz Beats:
“Finding my soul-mate, finding the love of my life has been a freeing experience because of the way we identify [with] each other and understand each other. It’s so rare that you feel like you can be your whole self [with someone]. I can be my whole self, he can be his whole self. I don’t have to be half of myself, he doesn’t have to be half of himself. We can just be ourselves and so that alone [is a different feeling]. He’s actually taught me so much… He has that kind of a carefree easy-going spirit that has definitely taught me to be a little bit a little more [easy-going], which is great.”
On raising her son, Egypt:
“[…]having a baby, it’s like ‘Oh my gosh!’ It makes every — the smallest thing amazing. Like the first time he’s discovering how to say the word ‘light.’ Like ‘light’ is the most exciting thing. (She imitates Egypt) And it’s kind of true! The light is amazing. Like, ‘Look! You turn it off and then you turn it on and it’s beautiful!’ But for (adults) things become so routine, so mundane and for him he’s discovering things for the first time so it makes me see things in a new place. So, I think all of those things together has brought me to a place that’s like just a fresh, new start. And I really like this new start.”
We can’t wait to see what else Alicia has up her sleeve!
