Alicia Keys Joins SB Madness+Announces Tour

During the Super Bowl XLll press conference today Alicia Keys revealed that not only is she joining the performance line-up for the big football event, but will also be heading out on the road for her “As I Am” Tour- which will be sponsored by Lexus. The tour will build upon the success of Alicia’s latest CD which has already sold- get this- over 3 million copies since it was released back in November. The tour will kick off in Europe on February 25th and make stops in Paris, Milan and Zurich. The U.S. and Canadian parts of the tour kick off on April 19th in Hampton, Virginia and continue throughout the early summer. Alicia’s “As I Am” tour will visually step it up a notch as the singer has called upon iconic designer Giorgio Armani to create a custom wardrobe for the her, which I suspect will rival that of the great Cher, Tina Turner and Janet Jackson. Look for Alicia in the meantime to perform at the SUPER BOWL XLII PREGAME SHOW at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona, which will air live on Fox, Sunday, February 3rd.

  1. good job alicia! I’ve said it before…..her success is well earned. Notice how she looks happier and more confident in this outfit as opposed to the green gown and big hair do. much health and success on her tour.

    Brownsista you are keeping the stories flowing in ’08 I’m going to have to check here more often :thumbsup: that’s how you do that :dance1: :dance2: :dance1: :dance2: much love.

  2. :brownsista: Go Miss Keys! Love me some AK. Don’t know what’s going on with the crouch area of her pants though! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. 3 million over 1/2 months? Awesome! :brownsista: Love this woman!

  4. Do the damn thing Ms. Keys, I luv her tremendously. Hopefully her CD will eventually pass the 10 million mark. Believe me when I tell you that her CD never leaves my changer. She`s the finest and most beautiful sista in the game and very talented. She`s not just looks by any stretch of the imagination. Hopefully she too will have a load of endorsements because she has certainly earned it. No other sista in the game has anything on her. With all the crap that`s on the radio nowadays it`s refreshing to see there`s still a market for great quality music. Sit all these pretenders down Alicia and show them who`s boss!!! Alicia Keys all the way. :thumbsup:

  5. Good for her! She deserves all of the success she experiences and deserves a great deal of respect in my opinion. Her pants are “crotch-focusing”, but as I always say when I see that, I am glad that she still wears her pants. She always looks classy (Look at those heels though…higher than high!) and her talent is admirable in many ways. Classy, writes her own lyrics which actually mean something, composes, plays the piano. Not to mention the fact that’s she’s super smart. There’s not a bad thing that I can say about her.

  6. AKeys doin big things! Already 3million sold that is craaaaazzzzzzzzzzy! I love her CD, can anyone say Lesson Learned, Wreckless Love or Tell You Something, if you can’t I say go cop that album! When she comes to my neck of the woods I will definitely be there. Nothing but well wishes for that Brownsista :bowdown:

  7. My bad- update- Alicia was released in November- not December as I thought. Still, as it stands right now, Alicia is selling over a million units of As I Am a month and is #2 on the album charts again this week- almost 2 1/2 months after the cd was released.

  8. I HOPE SHE RELEASES TEENAGE LOVE AFFAIR AS HER NEXT SINGLE! THATS THE BEST SONG ON THE ALBUM! I LOVE AK!

  9. I love this lady! She is so talented! Not many females in the industry can sell that many units in so short period of time…But she is favored by God and she didnt have to sell her soul to become successful in the music business. I can’t wait for her international tour!

    Go alicia! Love you girl :brownsista:

    I cosign my husband love her…and i’m not even jealous i’m happy he has great taste that’s why he is with dark sista “heyyyyy” anyway yeah she is the epitome of what every sista should be about: intelligent(valedictorian of her class , college graduate)extremely articulate, classy and mysterious(aint none uglier than a woman that shows everything) talented and imbu of her passion,extremely sexy(even tought i’m not a lesbian i have to give it up to the sista) and over achieving…yes overachieving she has three outselling everyone’s cd , great movies ,(i dont count the awards no more because it seems like everyone can get them and they are not significance of talent anymore) and more to come
    and still people wants more from her they are looking foward to new projects from her ,she is so discreet (that includes not taking pictures of herself and sending to the media to stay in the light or even dropping rumors about herself just to make herself interesting) and really really really proud of being black and all about her blackness (including but not limited to not making statements about being jealous about not being such and such)….
    She is fiyah look up to her young girls out there and you’ll never end being forced to show your crotch because you’ll be a turn on with a beautiful mind…. :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: to a beautiful sista and shout out to all our real sistas out there trying to make us look good and not money hungry/dumb/unclassy/selfhating

  11. This sista is crazy. SHE is the baddest chick in the game right now. Real songs, real lyrics music with a purpose. I hope she performs “I need you”, the energy in that song is crazy! Also “Teenage love affair” That’s another good song. Thanks stephanie! Please continue to post more and more things about Alicia – She is going to be a female Stevie Wonder – AMAZING!

  12. DARKSISTA :hifive: on that one! My husband likes her too. But hey he likes me too ๐Ÿ˜‰ “Heeeey”

    LOVE HER!!!! SO FLY AND SHE’S KILLING THOSE SHOES!! LOVE A. KEYES!!!!!!!! :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

  14. Alicia Keys definately gets my respect. She’s a REAL artist. Her music has meaning and emotion behind it. She keeps her love life private. There’s really nothing bad that folks can say about Alicia. I personally LOVE her! :bowdown:

  15. Hmmmm I never imagined those shoes with anything earthy…but it totally works! I think she looks good… And, congrats on her mega success…she’s a positive role model…you’ve got to support those at any cost!

  16. GO A.KEYS SHE IS THE BADDEST WOMAN IN THE GAME. HER CD IS OFF THE HOOK LIKE EVERYONE SAY REAL MUSIC WITH ALOT OF POWER AND EMOTION BEHIND THAT WONDER VOICE. KEEP GIVING US GOOD MUSIC ALICIA.

  17. When it is all said and done, Alicia Keys will be the one young lady from her generation that will have longevity in this business. She takes her time to build her craft and deliver great music with substance and good lyrics. She is her generations Roberta Flack.

  18. That’s what I’m talking about. It’s about time this woman get hers. My favorite track is “Tell You Something” I love that song. I LOVE YOUR SITE BROWN SISTA!

  19. i think at the end she will be the legend if she is not already :thumbsup:

  20. oh yeah and tell you something got me crying smiling singing and all of it over and over again
    alicia is deep

  21. :bowdown: Congratulationโ€™s Alicia Keys the baddest chick in the game beauty, brains, class, longevity, and talent. It sounds like she is on her way to becoming a great and respected legend. We can’t help but be proud to support this very intriguing and positive sister with all her success. :thumbsup:

  22. Personally, she is one of the best performers I’ve heard yet, and she is nowhere near done yet. Like a lot of you, I keep her latest album in my CD player, and surprisingly…I’m not tired of it. I love “Wreckless Love”, “I Need You”, “Teenage Love Affair”, and though no one mentioned it, “Sounds Good to Me”. Can’t wait to see her on Superbowl tonight, and in concert! ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. alicia ,as a member of the akfc, i must say you did the superbowl justice, have fun abroad see you in the states Love Sue

  24. She was damn good for the Superbowl. She should’ve done the halftime show! Everyone I talked to, including my grandmother, was like “Did you see Alicia Keys? She was good.” ๐Ÿ˜†

  25. :iagree: Majesa. My girl did the DAMN thing!!! Also she was rockin’ those pants. I mean she is fine as HELL!!! In closing you mentioned your grandmother, so what does that tell you? What that says to me is that she`s able to cross all age groups. How many other artists of today`s generation can make that same claim? Something to make you go HHHmmm. :banana:

  26. Alicia Keys is fat and she will never be greater than Beyonce. Yes, I said it never so get over it quick. And yes I am a hater :hater: and I proudly wear that badge of honor :bowdown: . Terrance appearantly you don’t have good taste in women to think that this over stuffed bird is special. And Beyonce did a mouch better job when she performed at the superbowl.

  27. Des, you better show your face girl. Someone is up in here posing as you :lol2:

    Yall just need to stop :lol2: Terrance, that’s Real Talk perpetrating a Fraud :lol2: Get over yourself girl and keep it moving :loser:

    You owning up to your haterism is sad and pathetic. ๐Ÿ˜† Alicia For the World!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :brownsista: Smooches.

  29. Kanyade, I agree :iagree: what a sad individual Des is. Alicia rocks and Frank you are Des :hater: be more original the next time. You always run to take up for your numerous personalities :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

  30. Hey, Real Talk/Anonymous/Anonymous 1 (and whatever name you’re using now)… :loser:

    I have been watching you on this board since Des showed your pathetic post to me a while back :lol2: :lol2: How’s work :lol2: :lol2:

  31. terrence i’m with you all my aunties are alicia keys fan shoo my mama know tell you something by heart and those are working women my sister is a doctor and she still loves her some alicia keys meaning that she does represent for the real sistas the beautiful/smart/great personality sistas!!

  32. ๐Ÿ™„ Will someone please give the Beyonce worshippers (The crazed zealots, not the normal fans) a topic to run like chickens in? I knew when the last one closed all the stupid bull that runs rampant in the Beyonce threads would start to contaminate other topics. Just a find a picture , title it “Beyonce wears Blue jeans”, and watch people go jack crazy on each other for no real reason.

  33. Frank,

    I see these chicken heads, their cronies and several aliases are clucking as usual ๐Ÿ˜†

    But, that’s cool. I’m not changing my name or adding an avatar, so they can keep playing their little games :lol2: no sweat off my back :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    By the way, Alicia Keys has been looking real good and her performance at the superbowl was energetic and on point :dance1: GO ALICIA :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

  34. :bowdown: I love this woman, I am also a recording artist and this woman is so inspirational to me.

    The superbowl was crrraaaazzzy!!!…(well, excluding halftime) and she is an outrageous performer. I never yawned once while watching her perform, ever.{{{In my opinion, she did just as good as Prince did, during his half time show last year. Those of you that enjoy reeeal music, might agree}}}

    My favorite song on the album is “I NEED YOU”, that song is brilliant, I get goosebumps just thinking of it. I like a lot more songs, but then you all would probably be like, “Okay! Why didn’t she just say she like the whole album”?

    And to those of you who think Alicia Keys is fat and she will never relate to Beyonce…I’ll accept that compliment for her. It’s not an insult, to not be compared to anyone, it’s actually flattering, especially being that the most popular rumor about Beyonce is that she has halitosis (DAMN!!).

    I’m not bashing Beyonce, she’s cool. But Alicia is the TRUTH. And anyways, they are two different styles of music.

  35. halitosis: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

  36. Frank I mean Des you did not show Frank anything because you are Frank :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: Nice try you little retarded BITCH. You are only fooling yourself by posting under false names ๐Ÿ˜† . You are the JACKASS of brownsista :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: and apparently not the sharpest tool in the shed. You give your own self away by saying the same things over and over and always holding a conversation with yourself ๐Ÿ˜† You are not shit now nor will you ever be shit but an ASS wipe hopeless :loser: licking your chops for drama on blogs :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: Now let’s see which personality or name you post under this time.
