INTERVIEW FAB: Alicia Keys DISHES On "Experimental SEX" & Her Fave Position With Swizz Beatz & More

 

Alicia Keys recently sat for a revealing interview with British import Amanda de Cadenet for "The Conversation." Get the deets on her views about natural childbirth, breastfeeding and trying new things in bed inside....

 

On "The Conversation," executive produced by Demi Moore and hosted by Amanda de Cadenet,  Alicia Keys spoke candidly about giving birth to Egypt naturally, sex, her body image and a host of other intimate subjects.

Here are the highlights:

On her body image
Well, I think that we as females are like the most beautiful, gorgeous creatures on the world and I think that we’re gorgeous no matter what size that we are. In fact, I personally think that we are more beautiful when we are a bit thicker, bigger and more robust. I just think it’s gorgeous. Even seeing older sculptures from past centuries and you see the women very thick and very beautiful and I personally, think it’s really, really gorgeous. I’m grateful that I actually feel like that because I think that a lot of us feel as though we have to be some little, tiny size in order to be beautiful. It’s like, we’re beautiful not because of what size we are, we’re beautiful because of how your mind works and you’re beautiful because you have this gorgeous heart and that comes from way more than you fitting in some size two dress. And we’re beautiful because of all these things that come up and tumble out of us and that’s beautiful because I just always feel like I love being a woman. I really love it.

Then there’s the other side of being body consciousness, age consciousness, which I think is another one ridiculously pressed upon women, whereas men can become old, refined and gray and they are suddenly so handsome. But a woman becomes gray and she’s old and that’s so not true.

What I’ve noticed is that I find almost an obsession with older women because there’s like a confidence level there I really look forward to achieving.

On how her body has changed after she had her son
I think that it’s changed in so many ways. I was thinking about this the other day; we were just saying that your body does things that it would have never done before. It’s a miracle and incredible; bones and structures of your body move to new places! It’s like how?

Then I also breastfed; I don’t know if it’s a total myth but when you breast feed you kind of lose weight quicker.

On breastfeeding
I loved it. Well, there were a couple of things no one told you. I took this whole class too which I thought was really good because I think a lot of people think you’re just supposed to have this natural instinct that’s suppose to happen out of thin air. There’s a technique to learn and if you don’t know it, it’s not your fault. I was glad I did that because I felt kind of prepared a little bit. The whole engorgement thing, no one mentioned that part.

I remember I was in the bed and I couldn’t move because it hurts and there is no way around it. I delivered naturally and I kept asking myself, “What is wrong with you”? You spent hours and hours in labor and delivered naturally but you can’t take some [milk coming in.] They skipped that part; they didn’t tell me about that one.

On how she chose her son’s name Egypt
Well, Egypt was a really big important trip for me in my life. It came at a certain point where I had been working just endlessly and I really had no idea what it was to take a true vacation and it came to a place where I just really needed it or be on the verge of a break down. So when I went, it was such an uplifting, eye opening, historic, powerful and re-genitive experience that I hold a very fond place for Egypt. So when it came to naming our baby, I fell in love with it, we both loved it and decided like months before he was born.

On her decision to go to Egypt alone

At that time I just wanted to get away so badly that I was excited to be by myself. I think it’s something important because I think when you go places with people, you’re concerned about if they are having a good time or do they like the food I like or are they happy with this restaurant?

I would read my book in the little café that I went and the guy would come up to me and be like, “Are you waiting for someone?” and I’m like, “No, we’re here.” It was really liberating.

On her favorite position [random question]
Any and all sex positions. I happen to be a traditional kind of girl. I’m also experimental; we can have fun.

What would you tell your 14-year-old self?
Reel it in. Come back. Don’t go so fast. Honestly, you don’t want to get there that fast. You think you want to get there that fast; you do, we all do but you don’t because once you’re there you’re like, “Damn, now I got to be here and I can’t be back here.”

 

Interesting show indeed.....no mad at being extra open with your husband. *snaps*

Wonder how long people are

Wonder how long people are going to continue discuss Alicia's PAST instead of remaining present in the here and now !!!! Yes, she was dirty for stepping out with Swizz before the ink was dry but she is not the first or last woman to rule with her heart and it is what it is.....fast forward to 2012, she is MARRIED !!!!! I enjoyed the interview and the show as it is very real and refreshing and Alicia was extremely comfortable and natural in her responses and gives good talk without all of those lame azz filler works like 'ah' and 'You know what I'm saying' and am glad I was able to hear a classy conversation amongst some cool women.

Alicia fucked and sucked

Alicia fucked and sucked somebody's HUSBAND and got pregnant while HE WAS STILL MARRIED. She is hypocritical because she preaches and teaches womanhood, empowerment, and was also heavy on the HIV and AIDS campaign prior to her having UNPROTECTED sex with a married ass man. So if folks don't like her ass for that that's her fault. She TAINTED her own damn IMAGE. She might would not have been criticized for the scandal with SWITZ BEATS so much if she hadn't put herself on a pedestal of SAINT HOOD with her philanthropy causes.

Excuse me, she didn't put

Excuse me, she didn't put herself on a pedastal, you did. What you should realize is celebrities are no different than anyone else when it comes to errors or love. They're just criticized more. Alicia is the same person she has always been and if anyone looks down on her, hates her or thinks badly of her because of actions they don't even know about, then that's just pure foolishness and stupidity. You act like she should be perfect, but you really should be concerned with yourself. You are the one judging her and I'm sure you've done a few things you're not proud of. Want to air it on the internet? I didn't think so. Alicia is one of the most inspirational people out there and if you don't like something you THINK she did or even something she did then that's your problem.

What does what she did have

What does what she did have to do with that interview or article? She dated a seperated man and got pregnant and went on to marry him. Some of yall just want to find a reason to dislike someone or something when its not relevant. I wonder which one of yall are perfect enough to throw stones.

What about the children you

What about the children you homewreckers are affecting, it's not just about you and your selfishness to be with a man thats not yours in the first place.....STOP sleeping with married men!!! Your putting a curse on yourself and your future children, BE SMARTER than that, do better for yourself, how can you respect a man if he left someone else to be you?...thats not husband material...what type of example is that to a child,...what is your ultimate goal?...what makes you think he won't do it to you? What makes you think youre better than the last woman?....Dont be STUPID!....something to think about.
