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*

Why is it always the woman

Why is it always the woman who is to blame? He was SEPARATED from his ex. Alicia did nothing wrong except follow her heart. If the man had children by how many ever women that's not her fault. If anything she is the one who is stable enough to make him realize how important those children are and encourage a relationship with them.

And just how do you know he

And just how do you know he left his ex to be with Alicia? Hmm? Were you there when all this was going on? Supposedly he and his ex were already separated so therefore he had already left. Like Alicia stated, and the only thing she stated, she is not a homewrecker. If anything I think she has helped him keep in touch more with all his children. Why do people always want to believe the worst? Love Alicia and wish her and her family continued blessings.

You know I am getting real

You know I am getting real tired of hearing this crap about Alicia and the married man thing which means you are also coming bogus at the homie Swizz Beats...First off, dude was away from his ex wife Mashonda for a nice minute no matter how she likes to portray it...That marriage had been over for a long, long time!..Ask Mashonda's brother he will tell you that!!!
Money First's picture

itwasnt over long enough for

itwasnt over long enough for this bitch to have a baby when Mashondas child was just a baby also. I use to like her alot but now i look at her and just say i cant staNd that hoe change the channel.

You shouldn't make comments

You shouldn't make comments if you don't know anything about what you're saying. There was a lady in London who had an affair with Swizz and a baby when Mashonda's child was a baby. Alicia didn't have his child until much later when he was separated from his wife and Mashonda's child was older. It is what it is and it's their personal life. What happened, happened and I don't believe Alicia broke up anything. I think the ex was just jealous because he finally left instead of just having an affair. If she had really been any kind of woman she would not have even wanted him after she accused him of causing her to have a miscarriage BEFORE they were married because of the stress she was going through and the fact he had another woman pregnant at the same time. She still married him, like a fool so she deserves whatever comes her way. Also if she really loved him she would have been more anry about his other affairs and baby during the marriage. When it's over, it's over. I don't know how more obvious he could have been.

I think

I think they(publicist/agents/professional ass kissers) put articles on certain blogs to get a response to tell if we like or dislike the artist Before the music comes out. Demi has been Moore produced it. They pay blogs for stories, don't believe me then ask Sandra cough record companies cough not plugging her azz.

Why are you taking this so

Why are you taking this so personal? Did she steal your man? Even the woman who lost her husband to Alicia has made her peace with it and moved on. In fact, they have a great relationship according to all parties involved. So, why are you still holding the grudge they have seem to let go? I dont get why some people get so angry over things that doesnt involve them. SMDH! Grow up! Live and let live. Handle your business so you wont have time to handle everyone elses.
