Alicia Keys Gets EDGY For VIBE's April/May 2012 Cover, Sits Down With Hubby Swizz Beatz

Alicia Keys is VIBE Magazine's April/May 2012 cover girl as they celebrate their 2nd Annual Global Issue.  Check out her cover, plus our exclusive outtake from the issue, and an excerpt from her interview she did alongside her hubby Swizz Beatz.

 

Rocking her ridiculously beautiful canary diamond wedding ring, Alicia Keys is being her usual earthy yet edgy self in the new issue of VIBE magazine.  In YBF's exclusive outtake shot, Alicia rocks only a red leather jacket and a set of colorful strings in place of a shirt, and her black lipstick.  She dishes on the love she shares with her husband in her first real interview in years.  And yes, her man Swizz (Kasseem Dean) was a part of the interview too.

An excerpt from their cover story:

“It was the craziest thing,” says Dean, leaning forward in his chair. “We had a work lunch with some people, and I get home and look in the back pocket—"

"My credit card was in his pocket,” Keys finishes the story, eyes wide. “Why was my credit card in his pocket?”

One explanation might be that he’d grabbed it by accident when they split the check, but that would be too prosaic. They saw the credit card debacle as a sign, the first of many. Well, second, if you count the time, 14 years ago, when they first met and Dean tried unsuccessfully to get her number from his friend. “It wasn’t our time yet,” he says with a smile.
 

Check out VIBE.com for more details on their cover.  The issue hits stands April 16th.

There aren't any concidiences

There aren't any concidiences in life. Things happen for a reason. They were meant to marry and have a family together. There time was over a decade later. Congratulations on a happy, loving marriage and more success in each career. Only the best for these two.

Alicia Keys always looks

Alicia Keys always looks beautiful and has her own style. I am happy to see her gracing the front covers of magazines again. Even if it Vibes.

No, Alicia's credit card

No, Alicia's credit card being in Swizz back pocket was a sign that she should run like he**. She married him after courting him while he was legally married. Swizz hit the jackpot with this chick. She opened connects and helped him with his spousal and child support, all the while giving him full access with a ring!! This dude is a clown. All these years, Alicia has tried to portray herself as being soooo deep. Yeah right, ho!! You are a lonely, disrespectful sugar mama!! You should have gotten your card back and left him alone!!

It's alright to think the way

It's alright to think the way you think and maybe not aprove, even though you can't possibly know the truth, but to call her names is stooping pretty low and it's childish. She is a beautiful person and doesn't deserve the name calling.

Nothing that Alicia has done

Nothing that Alicia has done would change my mind about thinking she is a very deep person. I just don't understand how she can say her and Swizz are equals and on the same level. I don't think anyone had the respect for him that they had for Alicia. I mean Alicia wasn't out having kids with anyone and everyone. I doubt she was out flaunting herself around with just anyone. Her image was so clean. His wasn't. She may think he's her equal but to me she's not thinking enough of herself when she says that. I love Alicia and hope she continues to be happy and can even make him a better person. I still say she's a sweetheart and a much more beautiful person than even she could possibly realize.

You sound jealous and bitter.

You sound jealous and bitter. Swizz definitley knew Alicia Keys was his true partner in life. Swizz went after what he wanted Alicia. Good for Swizz getting rid of that zero and got with a real talented musician.

Yes! you are rifght Swizz

Yes! you are rifght Swizz went after what he wanted. A stupid, real talented musician because she sure as hell cant sing with all that damn yelling and screaming. Yep, he got his debts paid, business opportunities and more money in his pockets. Any trickster will do anything they need to do to get what they want....even get married! Alicia Keys will probably be suicidal when he dump her

Alicia is NOT stupid. Yes,

Alicia is NOT stupid. Yes, maybe she didn't make the right decision as far as he is concerned, but that doesn't mean she is stupid. She is definitely very talented and she CAN sing. Hopefully she will prove everyone wrong and their marriage will last and she will be very content and happy. Still, I get a bad feeling about him but I really wish Alicia the best. She would never be suicidal, she has an angel in her life that is much more important than any relationship whether it survives or not.

THIS>>>>>>"They began the

THIS>>>>>>"They began the relationship while he was still married,and legal proceedings in motion or not papers hadn't been signed so that makes you a mistress.He had no business publicly courting her until he was divorced.It's hurtful to your current wife and just exposes a big problem now with couples-lack of respect for each other.Whether times are good, bad or over between you two,you should always maintain respect through out.You have every right to want to end your marriage,but at least do it tactfully.I understand the whole 'wrong timing,we're soulmates,my credit card was in his pocket so that means we're meant it be in the heavens'-I don't believe it but I get it.The way it was done is just all kinds of wrong and reeks of people who can't see past themselves and how they feel at the moment.Whether her name was Alicia Keys,Alicia Locks or Alicia Doors,if he'll have an affair with you he'll have one on you.You already condoned it,so you make yourself vulnerable to all kinds of hurt.So if he ain't happy he can go elsewhere because you were Ok when you met." THANK YOU GLADYS!

Supposedly they began a relationship while he and his ex were separated, yes legally married but separated. Who knows why the divorce took so long but it did. For anyone who has never done anything wrong in their life you should definitely go ahead and talk. Then you can mark that down as the one thing you've done wrong. Judging. Otherwise it is not our concern and we should worry about our own transgressions because we know nothing about any of this other than hearsay.

SHUT UP! It's obvious you know nothing about anything. He wasn't married to anyone then or at least not anyone we know of. He and Mashonda were not married that long ago. Too many rumors that aren't true, just like always. Keep it zipped if you don't know.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The only reason Alicia is in Vibe is to get the Black support back. this is not because she loves us, her publicist has probably told her to reach out to the Nigga Magazine and see if the Nigga people will except you again.

Nope not ignorant at all boo! People come on here all the time when alicia is featured and talk about how black people are the only ones that hate alicia and howthe black blogs are the only ones talking about her adultery with swizz. So, Alicia is trying to make a mends with us and show us that she is soo innocent and was only captured by the love (lust) her and swizz have been caring around for 14 years for one another

Alicias' grandmother is probably rolling over in her grave! Another scandal in the family!!! I believe if she was still her swizz would not be in the picture. Her mother looks like she is the type to go along with anything.

Pathetic comment. To even suggest that Alicia doesn't know who the father of her child is, is purely ignorant. Believe it or not some people are honest about such things and really do know who the father is and also want their child to know. Don't say such degrading things about Alicia.

This is all Record Prom. Have you noticed that Swizz is always promoting everything she does and she has not promoted one thing about his mixtape or anything . Dont smell like right to me. I think she has paid off his stuff and now he owes her. Swizz is just buying his time till he can get out of this one.

Alicia looks splendid, patiently waiting for new music from her. As for the jealous, hateful, ignorant lemmings who arell talking about gossip and inuendo from 4 years ago is a sad thing, Alicia has been living her life like its golden ever since, sweet little baby boy, loving husband, many great accomplishments, directing, producing, grammys, broadway, etc. and you all are still stuck on hear say. sad for you all, get a life people.

These celebs are the best

These celebs are the best liars. They are used to being in the spotlight and know how to put on a good front. Why would you have/want to be uncomfortable to be in love. That sounds a bit like low self-esteem to me. Why would you make yourself uncomfortable to be with a man that everybody knows in the real everyday world, not blogs; that he is a cheater. Alicia know he is. Its a matter of time before everything comes out. Whats done in the dark comes to light.

Actually, They Gabby and Alicia are telling the truth. You refuse to believe. People sit behind the computer and act as if they are perfect with high morals but we are all sinners on earth. No one is above anyone else. You all lie when you sit and judge what you don't know but when you hear the truth, you choose not to believe.
