Zoe Saldana ENGAGED+Alicia Keys Avoids "Homewrecker" Questions

Zoe Saldana's had the most winningest year ever.  After being nominated for every award on the planet, and winning several of them, she just got herself engaged.  Her long time boyfriend of 10 years, Keith Britton, popped the question.  But Zoe's staying tight-lipped about the whole scenario.

 

Read on for more and about Alicia Keys' recent interview...

 

Us Weekly reports that the Avatar star is about to tie the knot.  Even though we thought she was already engaged it's been so long:

The actress, 32, "is thrilled" to tie the knot with boyfriend of 10 years, Keith Britton, a source tells Us. "They’ve been together forever. They’re a great couple."

But a low-key one!

Saldana has mostly kept quiet about her relationship with the 33-year-old actor and CEO of My Fashion Database.

"She doesn’t even introduce him as her fiancé," adds another insider. "She will just say, 'This is Keith.' She likes to keep her personal life to herself and wants people to focus on her as an actress."

The second source tells Us that Saldana isn't stressing about the wedding, either: "She hasn’t stopped working to plan anything."

 

Congrats Zoe!

 

 

And Alicia Keys did an interview recently with Fabulous Magazine (a spinoff of the UK tabloid News of the World).  And when asked about being a homewrecker, she quoted Oprah and sealed her lips:

Alicia Keys on loving Swizz: “Oh yes,” she says dreamily. “I am very much in love. Right now love is my main inspiration. Love is the one thing we all want in our lives and I am completely surrounded by it. Love fills you up in a way nothing else can and it’s the most amazing, amazing thing.”

On motherhood: She’s even considering adopting a child from Africa in the future. “I’m so looking forward to being a mum,” she says. “My mum was the best mum to me. She was my best friend as well as my mum. And I want to be the same to my child.”

Fabulous Mag on the homewrecking: “Both Alicia and Swizz have strongly denied that they were together while he was married. In fact, despite regularly being seen at the same events and holidaying together in Hawaii in January, they only admitted they were a couple in May, when they were photographed hand-in-hand following Alicia’s sell-out gig at London’s O2 arena. Their public outing came just weeks after Swizz’s divorce was formalised. Two days later, headlines announced they were planning to marry and expecting a baby. Not exactly music to Mashonda’s ears.”

But Alicia won’t be drawn into discussing her fiancé’s ex. She shakes her head: “Oprah Winfrey is the wisest woman I know. She’s like my big, clever, older sister. A while ago she gave me one piece of advice which was to never get drawn into talking about that sort of thing. All I know is that right now my life is really, really good.”

We all know she's never going to answer the question fully.  But it's still interesting to hear her reactions when asked....

WHo cares if he wasnt OFFICIALLY divorced! the marriage was definitely over..how many people wont date somebody who is CLEARLY SEPARATED and going through the process of divorce..NOBODY!! so stop hating on ALICIA she didnt do anything wrong..HATERS!

Some states actually require

Some states actually require you to get separated before you can get a divorce... AND sometimes when one party has a vastly greater income than the other a separation is helpful to both parties for tax purposes (which i suspect is the case here)... Mashonda has moved on to a new (MUCH BETTER LOOKING) man... isn't it punishment enough Alicia ended up with that nose??? Besides... Opinions are like a$$ holes... everyone's got one... and people are only concerned with their own anyway...

Umm yes there are people that wont date someone who is only separated. Get your facts together, lets try not to make them up along the way, Just because you choose to be trash and deal with someone who is clearly not divorced does not mean others do to.

Alicia Keys is trash and

Alicia Keys is trash and contradicting. Years back wasn't her that told young girls to not have sex before marriage(all that jive) she was so proactive about and how she was saving herself with her last boyfriend until marriage(right). I guess you talk what benefits you at the time shoot that crap to others so that you can believe it yourself. Now she's pregnant and was pregnant before the man even got a divorce .... so i guess that say "f" how the other "sista" will feel. Guess she can't look out for a sistas when it's all about "alicia". She's lame and alway running her mouth about my black brothers and sisters and she gets pregnant for a man and he ain't even divorced from one of her would be black sistas. Way to go Alicia. Talking all that crap. She was sleeping with him long before he was at the end of his divorce and she didn't bother to keep discrete, hell she broke out pregnant in no time. Why not get married first Alicia? If the marriage was over years ago is it cool to throw your relationship in Mashonda's face? That's so cruel. would you want it done to you or your mother. What matters is that she got the man.. in her book she's won. Hit her with being pregnant right at the end of the divorce. Alicia doesn't not make the situation with Switz any better whethe the divorce was about his son or not, is she any better because she accepts the son and she's giving him another and slept with him thru all the bad times he and his ex wife went thru. i hope she's praying while she's "glowing" and rubbing Mashonda's face in her happiness and love and all of great feelings. She better help him with those tax problems ... maybe she did get with him in time so she could help thru the pain of divorce and paying his taxes. what a gift of gab she has.

From the sounds of it their

From the sounds of it their marriage was falling apart before Alicia showed up. I also read that Mashonda wanted Swizz to choose between his marriage and his oldest son--if this is true I don't pity the bitch because you never get between a parent and their child. Also this new man she has, I'm sure he was around before her divorce was final so I don't see the difference between what Swizz did and what Mashonda did. Don't people have a right to be in a relationship that makes them happy? And why does ANYONE have to live up to ANYONE ELSE'S standards? People will always talk shit no matter what a person does--good or bad. But anyway, only they and God know the truth. People putting celes on pedestals like they aren't humans too who make the same mistakes as others need to cash a reality check and stop casting stones like they are saints or some shit. We should all try to be better people anyways and stop watchin other people. Be the change you want to see. You may not like what you THINK happened but you need to realize aint none of these damn celebs worried about what you think...so keep it movin. Men lie, women lie, numbers don't--make money, worry about yourself, and leave the judging and whatever else you have no control of to God. These angry opinions are so tired. Alicia will continue to sell records and will still be more talented than Mashonda no matter what happens to either bitch. With a divorce rate of 50% in America---does anyone REALLY care--nope! If people could REALLY trust each other and be honest and act like logical adults prenups would not exist so marriage is just a money making business like everything else. Be good to yourselves and others and pray for better days. *taking a shot of Patrone and pineapple juice and heading back to the beach*

No woman who cheated with a married man will ever want to publicly discuss it. She knows she was wrong, and if she opened her mouth to speak about it, she'd be confirmed as what she is. Everyone knows what you come up with when you lie with dogs... Alicia is no exception.

Swizz and Alicia are deeply in love. They are both nice people who found each other. Love is a gift from God just as their unborn baby is a gift. They are blessed! Too blessed to stress!

Oh shut up with that

Oh shut up with that hypocritical BS. You know they are nice ppl how? Exactly. You don't. Babies are not a gift from god. Babies are born from procreation, two people having s.e.x. and that is it. Tell the mothers in Africa whose babies are products of rape and born with AIDS that their babies are gifts from god. No, it was a gift from a vicious criminal who decided to terrorize her. They both are homewreckers and god is NOWHERE in this union. I swear some black folks are the biggest hypocrites. Will use god to justify just about anything EVEN when it is clearly wrong.

Zoe is getting pimped out by

Zoe is getting pimped out by this white guy. Normally white men don't even like black women. I don't care if she has been with him for 10 years; the only reason why he wants to marry her now is because she's getting mad money and prestige. I'm assuming the only reason why he began to date her in the first place was because he knew she had a hot carreer ahead of herself (dollar signs). Y'all see what happened to Halle, and Garcelle. FYI: If your a sista who has some dollars in your pocket and want to date a white man, get one who has way more money than you ( go Niomi)! White women have the right idea, they know how to seek black men with money (and fine brothas at that) who can help them out not the other way around.

I shall assume that in your world EVERY woman is just itching to get married to the first man that comes along, no? Has it ever occurred to you that Zoe Saldana, like many of my educated friends, actively want to WAIT to establish a successful career (whether it be as an actress, lawyer or doctor) before tying the knot? No...that never occurred to you did it. You seem a tad simple to reach such conclusions. Sheesh. You may be THAT desperate for a man to put a ring on it, but some of us want to reach our zenith INDEPENDENT of a man and then get married. So pray tell how you know that this isn't the case for Zoe Saldana?

honestly...i do commend alicia as well for the positive things she has done..but like someone else said, her good deeds do not cancel out the fact that she caused another woman so much pain re: an affair (a very public one)with her husband. i am very disappointed in alicia's actions, and what comes around goes around. i don't wish bad on her, but that's the way it goes when you bring it to others. what's done is done tho & i hope that, although, alicia is not admitting publicly that she was with swizz while he was still married...i hope she has prayed and asked for forgiveness. anyway...moving on...i have things to finish at work!

For Zoe, I wouldn't have accepted that engagement ring. If he hadn't proposed to you in two years of dating, then move on to the next. It seems pretty suspicious that he chose to propose after ten years and as she has became a hot commodity. Think about it, Zoe! Play him, enjoy his company but not your lifetime.

i dont agree wit you. were talking about spending the rest of your life with someone because you love them unconditionally. that takes time. you cant put a time limit on love and for some people who actually care about the concept of marriage they take time to invest in the other person, or date for a while or just develop a strong enough relationship to move on to the next level, marriage. you shouldnt try to play matchmaker for Zoe or tell her she should play him or leave him cus u dont know SH!+. (just like Me) all we can do is wish the best for them. ( i was secretly hoping she's marry a brown man, but love is love...)

At the end of the day -

At the end of the day - Alicia was messing with a married man - period - and they were both lying about it. If there is nothing wrong with the situation - then why lie. You don't have to know them personally to know a few days after he finalizes his divorce - they emerge as a couple and she preggers and getting married? What did this all happen in 5 minutes? Like I said - if there was nothing wrong with it - there is no need to lie. This has nothing to do with her humanitarian efforts. Preachers do dispicable things so one thing has nothing to do with the other. Like the other blogger said - watch how you get a man.

In this world there isn't

In this world there isn't anything worst than being a gay person. If you are black and gay, society is more against you. Let face it, black people will call a person gay to demean them not to celebrate their sexuality. Alicia Keys always said she wasn't gay or bi sexual but people didn't believe her. She said she didn't break up a marriage and people don't believe her. What is she to do but live her life.
