The video for Alicia Keys’ new single “Doesn’t Mean Anything” has been shot and is set to premiere exclusively on October 16th via Perez Hilton’s website. Why Alicia or her people chose that particular website to debut her video a day before the rest of the world gets it is anyone’s guess. I personally consider it a slap in the face to all the other blogs and bloggers who have supported her through the years. Alicia’s video could have been debuted via her own website or other traditional music outlets like MTV or Yahoo, but apparently spiking Perez’s traffic and putting money in his pockets trumps all… including common sense.
Seeing that Alicia or her people think Perez’s audience is so much more valuable than the audiences of other blogs- I say let them have her. This particular Brown Sista writer however is officially boycotting Alicia Keys and everything she does with this album.
One also can’t help but wonder if the lukewarm reception of her first single and the bad press she got from stealing Mashonda’s husband had something to do with this decision. A lot of artists seek out Perez’s blessing when their careers need a boost.
