What’s Alicia Keys Favorite Gift From Swizz Beatz?


Riding high from her halftime performance during this year’s All-Star Weekend, Alicia Keys stopped by to chat with Wendy WIlliams. And, the gossip queen got into all the intimate details.

The Girl on Fire talked about one of the best gifts she received from her hubby.

“This might sound strange but I think the favorite gift he ever got me [was] he got a tattoo of me on his arm. Of my face. He hid it. It’s so beautiful. He mixed it with some of his favorite artists…It’s so pretty.”

She also revealed that they met when they were both still in high school. “It was totally different because we met when I was 16 and he was 17. A friend of ours that went to his high school was like, ‘Oh you gotta meet Swizz, and Alicia’s about to blow up and Swizz is doing his thing and maybe one day you’ll work together,” Alicia said. However years later, it was his mind that attracted her.

“I think what happened was, he really got me when I saw how far his mind went. He’s really, really intelligent and knows so many interesting things.[…]He knew all this stuff I had no idea about. I think that he loves to live life and he really showed me how to live life in a beautiful way.”
