Isaac Guzman of the Los Angeles Times spoke with leading Grammy contenders India.Arie and Alicia Keys to see if the pair consider themselves rivals ahead of Wednesday’s awards. Keys insisted, “I’m happy for the acknowledgment and for people to like what we’re doing. But a statue doesn’t make me mad at somebody else or make me want to get it more than the other person.” Arie adds, “I want all seven and that’s it! [Laughs.] In the long run, no one statue or award is going to change anyone’s destiny. So if you think you’re going to be competing with anyone else, it’s a true waste of your energy.”
