Alicia Keys Covers Essence Magazine's June Issue

Alicia Keys has remained rather low key while settling into her new family life. Alicia Keys gave birth to her first child, a son, Egypt Dean and got married to mega hip hop producer Swizz Beatz in 2010. Now Essence magazine has scored the post family life cover and interview with Alicia Keys. Reportedly Alicia goes into great detail about her family life and being in love with her new hubby and their son, Egypt. For now we only have a few excerpts courtesy of USA Today,

On love: “Falling in love is such a force, but this is a whole other level of magic…”

On music, marriage and motherhood: “I was very closed for a long time. But I feel so open now. To feel open like this means you’ve found the center in yourself. You’re not hiding; you’re not worried about anything. Everything’s going to be just fine.”
