Alicia Keys Stops by Master Class
Alicia Keys sat down with Oprah on Master Class this weekend, opening up about her relationship with husband Swizz Beatz. Keys said she knew immediately Swizz would be the one. “I really learned what everyone meant when they said, ‘You know when you know’ when I met my husband. I never knew what that meant and it sounded to me like some weird kind of slogan,” she said.
Keys continues that before she met Swizz she was a more organized person who liked to plan. Now, she has learned to take life as it comes a bit more. She learned “there’s also another part of life that’s very spontaneous, it’s very natural. It kind of unfolds and it happens to you.”
La Toya Jackson Peddling Michael’s Kids?
It’s been a while since we heard from the Jackson family’s zaniest member, La Toya Jackson. La Toya was particularly quiet last summer when the rest of the Jackson family battled the executors of Michael’s will for control of the estate.
Apparently, while the rest of the siblings were screaming at each other and pleading their case to mother Katherine, La Toya got close to the children, and pushed them in the direction of entertainment careers.
“She told them how she knew [Michael] better than anybody else, and she knew he’d want them to follow their dreams; and because they were his children, they could be media and entertainment moguls,” said a source to the NY Post.
So far, her plot as been successful, as Prince is a correspondent on Entertainment Tonight and Paris has inked a movie deal. The children are signed through La Toya’s Ja-Tail Enterprises talent agency, which unsurprisingly has no other clients.
