divaFotos: Alicia Keys Talks About Her Come-Up With W Magazine

Alicia Keys looks freaking gorgeous inside the pages of W Magazine.  Besides having these beautiful portraits taken by Mario Sorrenti, she talks about first breaking into the music with her debut album.  On June 28, she will drop a 10 year anniversary of Songs in A Minor which will feature new songs, a documentary and live performances.  Check the highlights:

“I just wanted to be who I was, which was like so many other girls I knew. We grew up in the city, had a hard edge and obstacles to overcome, but we were still young and beautiful. I didn’t want to be all dressed up, all made up—I wanted to be myself, which hadn’t been done before.”

“I was a young girl with very strong ideas but no experience. I just knew that everything else I was doing was wrong—that all the suggestions weren’t what was in my mind, they weren’t what it was meant to be.”

“How terrible would it have been if I had come out with some watered-down version of who I am? People fell in love with the real me, and I still feel blessed that that was how the journey began.”

It’s sad to say, but 10 years later, and artists are coming out more water-downed than ever.  More photos of Alicia below:
