Alicia Keys Talks About What Women Inspire Her Most, Her Son Egypt, Her New Children’s App & More…

Oct 25, 2012 | By:

This week, Alicia Keys is the guest editor for iVillage. In an exclusive interview, she talks about the launch of her new children’s app, the inspiration behind her song, ‘Girl On Fire’, the women that influence her the most, and her best collaboration yet, her son Egypt, and more.

Check out excerpts and full video interview, below…

On the reporter who influenced her latest single and album title:

Jeannine Amber (Essence) is an incredible journalist…and when I read (her piece)…she said she was like ‘a girl on fire,’ and I was like ‘ahh,’ I am so writing this song because I am. That is me. That is what I want to be…. Who knew a year later that here it is and it’s my first single and the name of the album.

What is a “girl on fire” and what is your favorite line of the song you wrote?

A girl on fire is somebody who is completely themselves…. You don’t have to be like anyone. All you have to do is be like yourself. Find your passion.

There are so many (favorite lines)…I think my favorite part of the song is “she’s got feet on the ground and she’s burning it down. She’s got her head in the clouds and she’s not backing down.” She’s not backing down – for me that’s everything right now.

Oct 23, 2012 | By:

I’ve been obsessed with different style leggings lately. One of our BUZZ supporters, Dionne, just celebrated her 25th birthday.  She posted the above pic showing off her birthday outfit. I love the leggings, so had to post as our ‘STREET CHIC’ feature!!

Dionne is rockin’ BCBG MAX AZRIA ‘Cameron’ leggings, which Dionne says:

They’re cotton & feel like a sweater for my legs.  I had to keep telling people my leggings aren’t see through…lol.  The color is a nude on me.

Toya Wright was recently spotted with the same leggings… Wait, there’s more…

Jay-Z & Beyonce Got 99 Problems, & Trademarking Blue Ivy Is One…

Oct 22, 2012 | By:

Even Hip-Hop royalty can’t get what they want all the time!!

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has ruled, and Jay-Z and Beyoncé can’t trademark the name of their daughter, Blue Ivy.

The superstar couple filed a petition to trademark the name “Blue Ivy” shortly after their daughter was born in January, seeking to reserve it for use as a possible brand name for a line of baby-related products, including carriages, diaper bags and baby cosmetics.

I’m actually surprised that the ultimate strategic branding genius couple didn’t research to ensure all future business and branding,  BEFORE they named their child.

Oh well! *kanye shrug*

Read more about the company that does have the name Blue Ivy, and can continue to use it…HERE!
