I’m noticing a lot of discussion of people on message boards or even search queries looking for dirt on Alicia Keys being a lesbian or bisexual. I did a little digging myself and included plenty of evidence at least from her part, that she’s straight. Read on for evidence.
From an MTV.com article:
“A real man knows a real woman when he see her,” she continued before throwing off her hat, revealing long, beaded braids.
“Throw it to me!” yelled a man in the audience.
After crooning her acclaimed single, “Fallin’,” Keys told of a night with her boyfriend that was interrupted by a ringing phone. She said her man took the phone in the bathroom, and she followed him and knocked on the door.
“I don’t mean to be interrupting and sh…,” she acted out.
Keys explained to the audience that her boyfriend had defended his actions by saying the person on the other end of the phone was just a female buddy. This segued perfectly into “Girlfriend.”
From a USA Today article:
Take, for instance, the semi-autobiographical video for “Fallin'”, her haunting, gospel-tinged hit single about a painfully stormy relationship. In it, Keys takes a bus trip to visit her incarcerated boyfriend, something she recalls doing in high school. “I made the trek, got searched, had two minutes with him and had to turn around and leave,” she says.
From Teenpeople.com chat transcript, which shows her anger over the rumor:
Question: Alicia, you are truly inspirational. Can you tell me about the article in Honey magazine saying you are or used to be bisexual?
Alicia Keys: Thank you, Drama Momma, for the inspirational part — but how did you get biSEXUAL from biRACIAL? Because I am DEFINITELY ONLY INTO MEN!
HostTPZena: There is a difference between biracial and bisexual…
Alicia Keys: A BIG difference!
Finally, from my own site as reported by Jane magazine:
Alicia Keys talked to Jane magazine for their November issue and admits she’s not big on groupies saying, “I guess guys might be more into groupies ’cause they just want to get their thing on. At this point, I have more obsessed female fans than male. I start to know ’em by name. You see shows like ‘Selena’ and get nervous.”
