Alicia Keys talked to Blender magazine for their May issue and it’s not just all about music and if she eats coochie or not. Alicia gets deep. Really deep. Alicia gets into talking conspiracy theories.
The interviewer, Jonah Weiner, starts talking to Alicia about her love for music of the Notorious B.I.G. She tells him her favorite song of his is “Me & My Bitch.” Jonah asks her what other gangsta rapper she likes and she answered, “Gangsta rap’ was a ploy to convince black people to kill each other. Gangsta rap’ didn’t exist.”
Wait, WHAT?! She apparently really said that! Jonah responded with, “A ploy by whom?” Alicia answered, “The government.”
Alicia said she’s been reading a lot of Black Panther autobiographies. She wears a gold AK-47 pendant to “symbolize strength, power and kill ’em dead.” Alicia goes on to say that she believes Tupac and Biggie were assassinated “by the government and the media, to stop another great black leader from existing.”
She’s also planning to write more political songs. She said if the late Black Panther Huey Newton “had the outlets our musicians have today, it’d be global. I have to figure out a way to do it myself.”
The Associated Press contacted Alicia, but her rep said she was on vacation and not available for comment. Blender contacted Alicia’s mother about the AK-47 necklace she wears, her mother responded with, “She wears what? That doesn’t sound like Alicia.”
Alicia is giving our government too much creative credit. Those dumb fucks can barely hum a tune, let alone come up with a whole genre of music.
I have a feeling Alicia is going to quickly issue a statement saying bitches were drunk and high and she didn’t mean it like that. Who knows? Maybe she didn’t.
Papa Clive Davis is not going to like this!
