TIDBITS: Alicia Keys Lectures, R. Kelly Dropping, & Vanilla Ice Peddling

Well looky here. Alicia Keys just announced via a press release that she is kicks off “The Element of Freedom: The Lecture & Performance Series” at New York University’s Skirball Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, October 21. Named after her upcoming album THE ELEMENT OF FREEDOM, this unique lecture and performance series offers the opportunity for students studying music and other entertainment fields to obtain first-hand information from Keys on how she applies the element of freedom into her creative process and life in general. It's not open to the public. Alicia's comments:
“For the first time in my recording career, I think I’ve finally found an understanding of the creative process by just allowing myself to be free. I took a totally different approach for this album and didn’t confine myself in a studio or allow myself to be negatively affected by deadlines, which can hinder any creative spirit. I've found a freedom and flow that I try to implement everyday. Hopefully the points discussed during these lectures will resonate with the students as they continue to find and define their creative process and style."
Hmmm.... More with R. and Vanilla when your read the rest...

R. Kelly is releasing his tenth studio album Untitled due in stores Dec. 1, with his latest single “Religious” hitting airwaves on the heels of his US tour. And just for S's and G's, Please check this ish out. Apparently Vanilla Ice is now peddling Catsle Ice beer in South Africa. Funny funny....

@ Venus: Your comment holds

@ Venus: Your comment holds a lot of truth to it b/c personally, I would not take it that far but you can't fault someone who intends on fighting for their marriage until the very end. I say let her make a fool out of herself for the sake of her marriage, especially if she believes it can be saved. It doesn't matter what WE think, SHE believes she had a chance to save her marriage. I see women fighting, arguing, and competing for men who have never belonged to them or been committed to them in any way...now that's PATHETIC! Girl, this whole AK/Swiss/Mashonda thing is a something else, I just hope they all find peace with the situation and move on for the sake of the child(ren). Again, you make a really great point!!!

Gab: Got to come back on

Gab: Got to come back on this one:Are you married…have you ever been married?Marriage is a full time and part time job together.You have to work hard to keep your marriage alive.Things happen in marriages and one person will definitely lose hope before the other.The other person is determined to fight for the marriages.When you have a third party involves, it complicates things even more.Even if they were going thru some things, AK should have stepped back to see if Mashonda could salvage her marriage.What GOD puts together, let NO MAN OR WOMAN come between…that’s real.As far as AK, i love her as an artist and i will continue to support her career but God’s word is bond and she will get it back ten fold…Swiss should have respected AK (since he LOVES her so much) and WAITED for the divorce to be final.Womenwe need to stick together and stop letting men make a fool of us! It's not Alicia Keys' responsibility to help Mashonda salvage her marriage. Honestly, it takes TWO to salvage a dying marriage and if Swizz gave up and moved on there is obviously no saving to be done. Women we should stick together in various ways but we also need to stand up and stop making fools of ourselves. Airing your dirty laundry on Twitter through a letter where you admit to asking your husband's mistress to step back so that you can save your relationship is the move of a fool in my opinion. If your husband doesn't want to save the relationship and disrespects you by taking another woman right in front of your face then you need to have some pride, pick yourself up and move on to the best of your ability.

Sorry but I read your first

Sorry but I read your first blog and you kinda switched it up---for good reasons I'm sure. This IS a blog focused on AK and the whole Swiss/Mashonda dilemma...not teen pregnancy, smokin' weed, or booty shakin so if you want to start preaching again...look at yourself FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Women United.......LOL: I

Women United.......LOL: I guess you just happened to find this GOSSIP site by mistake…online reading gossip…ummmmhh,hmmmm! Again, people, this is a BLOG…meaning people give their opinions. If that bothers you then GET OUT. No ma'am. It doesn't bother me at all. I understand the concept of a blog. It's largely based on opinion, thoughts from a number of sources and gossip... But thanks for attempt to clarify. Like everyone else, I offered my opinion--most of which came from the Bible. Glad you took the time to read it. Hopefully, you were inspired. Oh, and reading IS fundamental. I said we "ALL" sin. (keywords: we, all - includes myself). I just find it interesting that we (again..myself included) sometimes forget about all the booty shakin, weed smokin and the sexin' we do when it's time to talk about cheating husbands and the women they date. That's all. I don't agree w/what she's doing and what he's doing but I don't know them and I don't know their story. What I DO know is as long as Swiss keeps making beats and Alicia keeps singing and songwriting...I will keep listening. Done.

Here we go again's picture

I sat here and read the

I sat here and read the ENTIRE blog and I don't think any of your replies make any sense b/c no one is really trying to understand what the other is saying. The people who are saying IF this info is true, AK is wrong. PERIOD. The fact that she's a celebrity and does good things doesn't exclude her from being wrong. On the other hand, you have people who are saying that AK is being hated upon and judged...that she does great things for the community?!?!?! That's all well and good but if you knew your information, you would all know that it is no rumor that Swiss and Mashonda are still married...it is no rumor that Alicia and Swiss are very much a couple. Neither one is a crime last time I checked! I think the real issue is how AK has portrayed herself all these years but now she's involved w/ this married man. People do it all the time but that doesn't make it right. Do we still love AK...hell yeah b/c girl is an incredibly talented artist. It all comes down to culture, values, and morals. Some believe once the decision is made to go their separate way that they are single...free to explore all that awaits them. Yet, some believe in the sanctity of marriage...you aren't free to parade around like you're single until the papers are official. Again, I'm impartial to all of this but I do have a few questions: Why is it that we (women) want a man to make it OFFICIAL by walking down the aisle...going to the courthouse...what have you? Afterall, no one wants to be that cow who gives milk away for free. LOL! So, why is it that some of us feel it's okay to be with another woman's man when he hasn't OFFICIALLY divorced from another woman. Afterall, aren't you still that cow who gives milk away for free b/c you have communicated to that man that you will take him at any rate. Doesn't mean he doesn't love you...just means I demand a little more of you b/c I deserve that much...I'm worth that much...I want you completely. I don't know about you but AK deserves that much!!! I am trying to get this job w/ a hott magazine in ATL so I have to do some research right now but I LOVE ALL OF YOU BEAUTIFUL SISTAS and I pray you all demand more b/c you deserve it. MOOOOOOOAAAHHHH!

Erica (original): Lawd, I

Erica (original): Lawd, I wish you all would stop with this. What dirt is she doing? How can you when she nor Swiss have spoken out. Mashonda’s story is not the law and who knows what actually went on. Alicia is only wrong if she was messing with Swiss when he was going to Mashonda. Until FACTS are released, how can you throw Alicia under the . My point exactly...no one knows the facts...but yet they assume based on a bitter woman...it's sad. I'm married, and if ever me and my husband split, and we know it's for good...I'm gonna see other men. Whether or not he signs the papers.

Vanilla Ice is nut! LOL

Vanilla Ice is nut! LOL Alica Keys I can't judge but on the same note how can you preach to people and uplift people when you break up someone's marriage. Let me give you an example How can I tell you to be strong independent woman but on the other hand I brake into people homes stealing their valuables. Would you listen to me!

Wow, it is so funny how folks

Wow, it is so funny how folks want to mention the Lord and then proceed to ATTEMPT to morally demonize someone based on whatever. I am in no position to cast stones at Ms. Keys or even at Mashonda...Swizz has made his choice. For all u folks talking about the sanctity of marriage, ya need to be concerned about folks popping out babies before there is even an established relationship much less marriage. Now that is something that is bringing black women down and gives me more concern than two people apparently in love now no matter where or how it happened

goddess: I love A. Keys and

goddess: I love A. Keys and I cannot wait for her new album! We honestly do not know what is going on w/ Mashonda/Alicia/Swiss. I thought Mashonda and Swiss had been separated for nearly half a year and he was the one who filed for divorce and during this separation Alicia and Swiss began to date. I find it interesting how no one seems interested in the dynamics of swiss and mashondas relationship. Whose to say that they were a good fit for eachother. They (alicia and swiss) look very happy together and if a person is unhappy in a marriage why should he/she stay? It's obvious that their relationship was crap. And who said that they should stay together? Mainly, what people are saying is if it's THAT bad, then be done with it. And if you LOVE Alicia that much, then make HER your one and only. Make that commitment to her, just like you formally did with your wife. I mean, it seems backwards that his wife is now not the one who was actually meant for him, despite the fact that he chose to actually marry her; but Alicia, who's supposedly the one he was really meant to be with, has to be the side piece. As for him filing for divorce, that didn't happen until earlier this year---which was almost two years after he began dating Alicia. It just seriously would be less of a headache, if people, could, first, think about who they should and should not be married to before they do it. And second, let their past truly be in their past, before jumping into a new situation. And another thing, a lot of people don't understand that not only are "separation" and "divorce" not the same word, but they also don't have the same meaning. In a separation, there is always room for reconciliation. And really that's the point---to step away and evaluate the relationship. You try to work on whatever your issues are with each other, if you realize that it can't be fixed, then you go and file for divorce and then GET divorced. That is really the end of that union, spiritually and legally. Now with divorce, there is no obligation on either side to physically or emotionally have any ties to the other individual. The only financial ties are through property and assets that were acquire throughout the marriage as well as alimony, if requested and granted. But, trying to get access to anything else has nothing to do with the ex-spouse. So, in the eyes of the law, the new chick has nothing over the wife. The wife gets to be a part of the financial and medical decisions pertaining to her husband. So, even though Swizz is playing house with his new chick, his old one still carries the title spouse, as well as every legal right that comes with that, because she is the spouse. With all that said, I don't see how either woman gets the fair end of the stick, when they are both involved with the same man---regardless if he's ALMOST done with one of them or not.
Me, too's picture

the anti idiot: Seriously

the anti idiot: Seriously lol. I am married and I see all this excitement and I laugh. Anyone who IS married KNOWS or at least understands that you cannot make someone love you once they do not love you no more. It does not mean they hate you (yeah some of you cause these men to hate you) - they are just not attracted to you like that anymore. Please stop being children. No one made anyone do anything. How do you all know how long Swizz and Mashonga had stopped being ‘together’. Pshhh please….let me go and tend to my husbands needs. It’s a full time job. We both have to be willing to try. Once one stops trying - there is no sense in trying to ‘make’them. Who watched Tyra last night? You could have learnt a thing or two. Oh and btw Natasha…the beer is called CASTLE. Good work Ms Keys. Such a strong focused woman. I wish you were lecturing at my school. Classes would have some extra shine That clears up any speculations from the single folks!!!
Let's See You Do It Better's picture

goddess: Wow there were so

goddess: Wow there were so many generalizations in there….how ridiculous. No I’m not the other woman nor are my “legs open” to every man or any man at that matter. How are people who support Alicia showing their true colors? According to reports Swiss and Mashonda had been separated for half a year. People get divorced every day some marriages were not meant to be in the first place. People are going on and on talking about Alicia ruined a family etc etc but what was the dynamics between swiss and mashonda and their married life. According to mashonda everything was fine…but swiss filing divorce papers suggest otherwise. Marriages with shaky foundations to begin with are bound to crumble at some point or another. If your foundations as a couple is strong to begin with nothing or no one will come between your relationship. I have no clue what happened with Alicia/Swiss/Mashonda but I hope they all work it out. I would also like to say cultural experiences are different here. Very little do we see healthy black homes where little girls and boys are taught to value themselves, become educated and begin contributing to your community. Look at youtube videos where people think it is cute to have thier 4 year old daughter dancing provacatively to the latest artist. Generalizing is determintal when you are not looking at the entire scope of the problem. the reason "black women" (according to your words) are opening thier legs is becuase they have a poor foundation during thier childhood...the reason black men aren't marrying women is bc realistically, that is not thier reality growing up.....many grew up on single family homes. I am not going to be hypocritcial here...i understand this is not the experience with all black families, but this is my assumption based upon your marriage stats.

Gab: So, if someone’s out

Gab: So, if someone’s out on a ledge, go ahead and push them off. If a man says his marriage is over, fuck his brains out! You women are pathetic! YOU ARE STILL MARRIED UNTIL THOSE PAPERS SAY NO MORE. RESPECT YOURSELF, RESPECT THE PERSON YOU’RE DIVORCING, AND RESPECT THE PERSON YOU CLAIM YOU LOVE AND JUST WAIT FOR THE DIVORCE TO BE FINAL. Someone made a really great comment about how a couple should be able to work it out or NOT work it out WITHOUT the distraction of a third party. So true! ? I missed the part where Alicia and Mashonda were in a relationship together. Swiss didn't want to work it out with Mashonda for whatever reason (we do not know the reson people - its all speculation at this point). People fall in and out of love all the time, and we don't know all of the infomation behind why the divorce isn't final. if you understand a persons "character" to be one way, then why do people rush to judge not having all the facts - even when it is contradictory to what understands about a person. in my mind i say "well, historically this person has done x,y,z, now it appears a,b,c is happening, before i judge a person on that, i may want to determine the factors that went into a,b,c b/c i doubt there is more than meets the eye". all i am saying is we are really talking about judging a person that is doing good things for the community. We don't have a problem when our brothers are out on the block husslin - they are taking someones, mother, sister, aunt, etc., but we only get angry when we think a woman is a threat (and not even threatening thier livelihood) - its probalby becuase there were a lot of hating broads that were looking for a reason to dislike her....and finally you have a reason...even if you really don't!!

@ POV...I have done bad

@ POV...I have done bad things in my life and they have come back to bite me in the *zz. That's what they call karma. And while we should not judge others, we should know right from wrong and there is no harm in stating so. I love hearing about celebreties giving back. I think it is their duty just as it is for us as well (and I do volunteer on a reg). But I think celebrities have a greater charge to do things 'above board' because of the media attention they receive that can feed our YOUTH. That is the real concern. I'm grown, I don't do what celebs do. So the bottom line is this...if AK did all of the dirt she is accused of, it will come back to her no matter how many good things she does to 'make up' for it. God is a JUST God. If she did not, there is nothing for God to forgive her for.
sista2sista's picture

married = separated >

married = separated > divorced until papers are final...you are still married. That's law. what is the RUSH...if its real it will stand the test of time. Allow the man to put his efforts into ending one relationship before starting another. AK looks like a hypocrite....she said one thing out of her mouth and actions say another. And BELIEVE me if her publicist could clean this up....they would have been ON IT!

Alicia is doing great things!

Alicia is doing great things! I love it! I wonder what most of these people making comments about her PERSONAL life are doing for thier communities besides making comments on blogs. Some of you are soooooooo judgemental! When Angelina did the same thing, she did not receive all of this backlash from her fans and supporters. We are all human and no one is perfect. I am sure most of you making these comments have done some pretty horrible things in your life. I can only imagine what Alicia as a female has to go through being in the industry: maintain a certain body image, do charity work, god forbid she wears something that someone doesn't like, be a role model, be judge for what goes on in her personal life, and be talented. It's a tough business and I applaud the way she handles all of it. And then we wonder why she premiered her video on Perez. Maybe she doesn't have as many haters on his site. I am sure Alicia's album will do well whether you all continue to make negative comments about her or not. Alicia is good! and if they hate, then let em hate and watch the money pile up!!

I'm glad "A" is doing the give back type of thing but I'm not feeling her and Gabrielle Union right now. Sometimes you just have to leave the married man alone and find another man to spend the time with. Maybe I will be feeling them next season but for now they make me wanna vomit. I don't care how separated someone is with they SPOUSE. They are still married and hell the time apart is well needed time for them to be the f*** alone. I would not trust the mindset of someone fresh off or still in a marriage. Be alone for a lil bit...obviously you don't know enough about yourself to break your vow between your wife and GOD!

Relationships are

Relationships are complicated. Hell, life is complicated, but have enough respect for yourself to stay out of grimy situations like these. There is absolutely no justification for it, none. Stop settling for crumbs, leftovers and seconds. I wish a negro would try to step to me that's married, it's highly disrespectful and it says alot about what category he's already put you in. If you're gonna step to me, bring your f'ing 'A' game, not some BS. I'm not sure why more women don't adhere to that. I thank God for a feisty mother who taught me to never settle for garbage.

I think until the video with Alicia keys and Swizz come out with his thing thing in her and the date on the video ppl need to shut up about she is sleeping with a married man. All folks saw was him and her at a couple of parties together and at a resturant together and they want to codemn this woman for the rest of her life. When nobody is perfect and without sin she just has her business or rumors of her business in public eye for the world to see.leave her alone.

None of us no the facts but one fact remains: Alicia is flaunting a married man around...a man who has a less than perfect marriage doesn't give you free reign to get with him. That's for all yall church ladies who want to act all high and mighty. You can pray for me if you want but I know how a lot of women are in church.

Everyone knows that Uncle Russ has a small one (go read/google his blind vice and get a clue) so, I am totally HAPPY FOR KIMORA to get her Freak on with a proper dark skinned $Exy Brotha. The AFRICAN Brotha did not hide or go on DL dates with his WOMAN. OUR African Brotha was PROUDLY dating his WOMAN. He man-ed up and took her to the best places in town. He married her and STANDS proud right next to her. KIMORA has never told anyone she is perfect, she does not come across preachy...Kimora Hustle's like crazy and she is ONE bad ass lady. KIMORA is not St KIMORA so if she ends up with P Diddy, I wont hate. Its not skin of my nose. However, St Alicia has a problem.

Nic: I luv YBF and I love the YBF community. But yall are just down right wrong. How dare you utter the word hypocrite and quote the Bible…about Alicia and whoever else.We ALL sin and should not case stones. When and IF we are lucky to make it to the pearly gates, Alicia’s sin is no bigger than u sleeping with ur boo last night…or gossiping with your co-worker….or not paying your debt…or not tithing REGULARLY….or lusting over Idris, Lance, Larenz Tate and whoever else. I could go on and on. Bottom line, let these women work on their relationships with themselves, with their significant others AND with God. If you truly know “the word”, you know that our God is a jealous God and He needs no help. The Bible says “..let us be without judgement..” If anything, pray for her, yourself and your family. Leave the rest to Him. I’m done. I guess you just happened to find this GOSSIP site by mistake...online reading gossip...ummmmhh,hmmmm!

Amen, amen and amen Nic: I luv YBF and I love the YBF community. But yall are just down right wrong. How dare you utter the word hypocrite and quote the Bible…about Alicia and whoever else.We ALL sin and should not case stones. When and IF we are lucky to make it to the pearly gates, Alicia’s sin is no bigger than u sleeping with ur boo last night…or gossiping with your co-worker….or not paying your debt…or not tithing REGULARLY….or lusting over Idris, Lance, Larenz Tate and whoever else. I could go on and on. Bottom line, let these women work on their relationships with themselves, with their significant others AND with God. If you truly know “the word”, you know that our God is a jealous God and He needs no help. The Bible says “..let us be without judgement..” If anything, pray for her, yourself and your family. Leave the rest to Him. I’m done.

Seriously lol. I am married

Seriously lol. I am married and I see all this excitement and I laugh. Anyone who IS married KNOWS or at least understands that you cannot make someone love you once they do not love you no more. It does not mean they hate you (yeah some of you cause these men to hate you) - they are just not attracted to you like that anymore. Please stop being children. No one made anyone do anything. How do you all know how long Swizz and Mashonga had stopped being 'together'. Pshhh please....let me go and tend to my husbands needs. It's a full time job. We both have to be willing to try. Once one stops trying - there is no sense in trying to 'make'them. Who watched Tyra last night? You could have learnt a thing or two. Oh and btw Natasha...the beer is called CASTLE. Good work Ms Keys. Such a strong focused woman. I wish you were lecturing at my school. Classes would have some extra shine :) Gab: Got to come back on this one:Are you married…have you ever been married?Marriage is a full time and together.You have to work hard to keep your marriage alive.Things happen in marriages and one person will definitely lose hope before the other.The other person is determined to fight for the marriages.When you have a third party involves, it complicates things even more.Even if they were going thru some things, AK should have stepped back to see if Mashonda could salvage her marriage.What GOD puts together, let NO MAN OR WOMAN come between…that’s real.As far as AK, i love her as an artist and i will continue to support her career but God’s word is bond and she will get it back ten fold…Swiss should have respected AK (since he LOVES her so much) and WAITED for the to be final.Womenwe need to stick together and stop letting men make a fool of us!

Vanilla is wearing that one

Vanilla is wearing that one so called hit out. He needs to move on with his life. Alicia's freedom is steeling husbands and breaking up family's.

Personally, I just don't

Personally, I just don't care. If anything fishy happened, then that is between Alicia, Swizz and God. And Karma comes back. Other than that, I could care less. Ain't me in the situation. And if it was, I sure would not like my business in the streets. Mashonda needs to stop yelling in public. It is not cute, boo.. you might begin to look like Jennifer Aniston.. a single woman who is always portrayed as being desperate and sad (which is ok but is terrible if this is the image being shown to the world). Shut the hell up. I would recommend Alicia, Swizz and Mashonda to sit down in private and have a grown up conversation about things because there is 1) a wife involved and 2) a child. And don't put it on twitter. I hope Swizz Beats is worth it. I always like to think that there is no man so special on this earth that two women potentially end up looking stupid during their relationships with that man. It says a lot about him and his ability to properly close one door before opening another. Brad Pitt is in the same boat.

I love A. Keys and I cannot

I love A. Keys and I cannot wait for her new album! We honestly do not know what is going on w/ Mashonda/Alicia/Swiss. I thought Mashonda and Swiss had been separated for nearly half a year and he was the one who filed for divorce and during this separation Alicia and Swiss began to date. I find it interesting how no one seems interested in the dynamics of swiss and mashondas relationship. Whose to say that they were a good fit for eachother. They (alicia and swiss) look very happy together and if a person is unhappy in a marriage why should he/she stay?
