Alicia Keys Covers Jet Magazine

Alicia Keys covers the latest issue of Jet magazine, which hit newsstands on November 19. "Bringing the Heat," reads the cover copy on the mag.

In the inside, the "Girl on Fire" sets the record straight on her marriage to Swizz Beatz:

"I'd never met a person where I could be fully myself . . . Swizz and I live in each other's shadow. So we can occupy the same space and there is nothing but equality. There's something really powerful about that."

She added that those who accuse her of being a home-wrecker don't know how things went down during Swizzy's first marriage to R&B star Mashonda:

"[They] were apart for some time before we ever got together . . . that doesn't matter to those who take pleasure in trying to knock others down . . . there's no need to fight what's not true."
