Alicia Keys praised her mother Nikki Augello in an interview with Evelyn McDonnell of the Miami Herald. “She is a very strong woman: strong-minded, strong-natured,” she said. “She wasn’t the type where I would walk in the house and see her defeated constantly. Even in those types of circumstances, she was always like, OK, let’s get it going. That taught me how to conduct myself as a woman in life.” As for her next album, Keys revealed, “Approaching my next album, I’m so excited, because I never had to compromise myself for this album, so I know I won’t have to for the next one.” Miami.com has since removed the article.
