Remember when Alicia Keys was gyrating on stage at the BET Awards and Prince had that nervous look on his face like “Oh lawd, I hope she doesn’t tumble fall off that thing”? Yeah, it finally happened at the Essence Music Festival. She finally took a tumble on stage. The crazy part is that she jumped right up like nothing happened. Wow.
Ms. Keys, please take this as a fierce warning from God that you’re doing way too much. Look, your “Superwoman” pedigree is not in question. We know you can rock a 50,000 stadium at full-term and still do the eagle if you want to. But in the wise words of Chris Rock, “You can drive a car with your feet, but that don’t make it right.” Please, slow your roll and take time off for yourself and your baby. Your beloved music career will be right here waiting when you’re ready to jump back in the game.
