In a piece titled “Quiet Storm”, Alicia Keys angelically graces the cover of the December/January issue of Complex Magazine featuring ASAP Rocky on the dual side.
In this issue Alicia talks about motherhood, her music and her admiration from Frank Ocean whoÂ not only penned “One Thing” for her “Girl On Fire” album, but openly “came out” to the world this summer.
â€œThat was super brave and Iâ€™m so glad that he wrote it,â€ she says. â€œHe is the voice for so many people. Weâ€™re all boxed in to these stupid things that weâ€™re taught is the way weâ€™re supposed to be and itâ€™s so ridiculous. There are so many people that need a champion to assure them that no matter who you are, you are a beautiful person. That doesnâ€™t change the fact that youâ€™re talented or intelligent. Thank God that we have come to this place where we can actually know and be more open to the fact that people come in all different ways. And thatâ€™s great because itâ€™s a very boring world otherwise.â€
