Alicia Keys Graces Cover of Marie Claire

Marie Claire

Alicia Keys may have released her fifth studio album, Girl on Fire, last year, but she’s still blazing hot. The R&B songbird heats up the pages of Marie Claire U.K., showing off her curves in flowing gowns while in the Bahamas.

For the July cover, she poses with her hand on her hip in a blue number. In another shot, Keys flaunts her fit frame in a yellow Diane von Furstenberg jumpsuit. She also wears pieces like an animal-print Gucci gown and designs from Versace and Just Cavalli.

In the interview, the “Brand New Me” chanteuse touches on topics like marriage and branching out in her career.

“‘That’s When I Knew’ is definitely an ode to my husband… Honestly I didn’t really like him that much. I thought he was too ostentatious,” Keys says of Swizz Beatz. She also admits to thinking the producer-rapper was “so annoying” before she fell in love with him.

As for her new ventures, the singer is happily involved in directing these days. “I fell in love with directing,” she admits. “Because first of all I didn’t have to get up early for make-up and, second, I’m a very diplomatic individual.”

Read the rest of her words in the issue, on newsstands now.
