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*

Alicia girl, you need to be

Alicia girl, you need to be put on punishment. Your publicist should band you from talking about this because every time u do a interview and talk about your love life you sound more and more like a homewrecking whore. Please stop it , u make my stomach sick. In your next interview just say " i had sex with a married man and I even knew his wife but his dick was so big and good that I couldnt stop fukin him and needed his dick to belong to me. So i used my money and fame to court him (like the nucca I really am) and then talked him into leaving his wife and newborn. I eventually got pregnant before they divorced but as soon as they did we married 6 months after.. Yes this is true love" Alicia your gona need several more people for me to believe anything your lying crooked mouth has to say.. sorry

Who cares about her old

Who cares about her old married dick pussy and her positions. She has slept with so many marrried men that Ive lost count. She may have not stole swizz from his wife (because u cant steal a man) but she sure as hell did open her legs numerous time to him during his marriage. she even got pregnant during his marriege.. she is and always will be a dirty female for that. mashonda has told the truth from day one. Alicia keys is a fake. Now shes talking about sex and positions soopenly but she wouldnt comment on the adultery rumors. shes so fake

I have been watching The

I have been watching The Confessions on Lifetime and the interviews are very smart and discuss women issues. That is what the interview with Alicia was about her body image, her experience with breast feeding, etc. It wasn't about sex positions as indicated in the header. There are a great deal of women on this site that would hopefully get some valuable information from watch the show. These are all smart, successful women sharing insight into their views. Very, Very good interview with Ms. Keys.

These hypocrites still

These hypocrites still berating Alicia bcz of what the tabloids reported just slay me, even after Swizz himself came out and disputed ALL that. The real reason they're mad is bcz they're the type that dedicate their lives to negativity and since Alicia had everything else going on for her when that story came up so they just latched on to it for dear life and refuse to let it go. I mean what else can they say about her?? Misery sure loves company!!

It's funny that the ideal

It's funny that the ideal body image for black women is the opposite of what's considered beautiful by society. When I was younger I actually felt more pressure to look "thick" rather than accept my naturally small frame. With age comes wisdom and I'm just happy to be me with no pressures from anyone.

1. i would never understand

1. i would never understand demi moore and aston kutcher, she had bruce willis sexiness all those years, after that, aren't you supposed to stay on that level? 2. alicia keys are swiz beats are together, who cares about how it happened? amazing how in hollywood golden era, the actresses/singers wouldn't dare tell their business to the world, let alone the media, but their lives were more scandalous and interesting than these stars nowadays who feel the need to tell us about their sex life, lame sex video tapes, twitter beefs, oversexualized images. back in the day stalets were getting it in with crime bosses, had porn backgrounds, having affairs, etc, but kept it private, because hollywood had standards. celebs thrive for attention, that hollywood has lost it's allure. the reasons why starlets of the past like dorothy dandridge, eartha kitt, etc, lived that life, because legends have presence, celebs have sex talks in magazines. nothing against demi moore, but how can you go from being married to sexy bruce willis to being married to aston kutcher. i'm pretty sure aston is a very nice man, but bruce willis is sexy and grown.jmo

Hopefully people won't ever judge you or your kids, or future kids based on 1 action in life. If that was the case we would all be scorned and outkast, you need to get over it and pray that your children are not treated as you have chosen to treat someone that you dont even know personally.

@ Anonymous 1:19 pm ALICIA

@ Anonymous 1:19 pm ALICIA KEYS did not STEAL anything. Swizz is a grown man and separated from his wife and filed for DIVORCE and then started dating Alicia. It's the same situation Kim K is in. Kim K separated from Chris H. and now she is dating Kanye West. People don't have to wait till the ink is DRY on a Divorce before they start dating. So please stop with these stupid comments. Mashonda took vows with Swizz which is broke LONG before Alica came along as he has a child out outside of the marriage. No person is perfect. But Alicia did nothing WRONG!

The ink must be dry, it is either one is married or not. To say nobody is perfect is correct, but to condone adultery makes you very stupid.

You only have to wait for the

You only have to wait for the INK to be DRY before you re-marry. Swizz told Mashonda it was OVER and he filed for DIVORCE. You don't have to wait for the DIVORCE to be final before you start dating again and looking for a new relationship. Divorces can take YEARS to resolve you don't have to wait. That is 100% not true. And Swizz committed adultery before he got with Alicia.....when he had a child while he was still married. That is totally different. And yes, Swizz has committed sins...and no he is not perfect....I'm not condoning anything he did.

'only have to wait for the

'only have to wait for the ink to dry before you re-marry' please which rule book are you reading. Leaving religion aside if we must it is dishonourable and a thing of shame to commit adultery. I was not there through swizzs' and mashondas marriage or their divorce, so whether the papers were signed or not is none of my concern, but for someone to accept that it is ok to date a married man and state that 'she did nothing wrong' is wrong in itself. Swizz beats is a waste of a human being which is obvious by his actions, but to be a home wrecker and then try and conduct yourself as a lady and 'represent" is a problem.
