Alicia Keys Tries To Cast A Spell On Hollywood With Bell, Book and Candle.

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2006

Singer and actress Alicia will produce and star in updated version of 1958 romantic comedy ‘Bell, Book and Candle.’

She’ll be an assassin in “Smokin’ Aces” and a best friend in “The Nanny Diaries,” but with two supporting roles that hasn’t reached the big screen, Alicia Keys has yet to cast a spell on Hollywood. That might change with the singer’s first lead role, as a witch in a remake of “Bell, Book and Candle.”

Keys can’t wait to take on the part of Gillian, played by Kim Novak in the 1958 original, mostly because she relates to the more realistic side of this witch’s life. Though the character is a witch, she mixes with modern society — she went to college and runs a shop in New York’s Greenwich Village. But she also has a secret life that involves hanging with other witches and warlocks, mostly at jazz clubs. That “underground society” interested Keys the most, since it’s “the kind of thing you never really think about.” The story, a predecessor to “Bewitched,” explores what happens when witches and mortals get mixed up with one another, or even accidentally fall in love.

Alicia Keys, David Bowie Help Raise Money At Black Ball

Friday, November 10th, 2006

Alicia Bowie, black ballAlicia Keys’ band has been practicing a bridge between David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” and Keys’ “Karma” for a half-hour to the point where they seem like one song.

Keys nods her head to the beat, giving her approval to the proposed medley for her performance at the Black Ball, Keep A Child Alive’s annual fundraiser in New York on Thursday (November 9).

“David Bowie is in the show,” Keys said, “so we’re singing together. But the song you just heard, we may or may not do. I figured, while he’s there, why not [do a duet]?”

Also joining Keys onstage will be Damien Marley, Angelique Kidjo and Louis XIV, who’ve all signed on to help Keys turn this annual event into a million-dollar fundraiser to help AIDS orphans in Africa. Interspersed between the performances will be film clips of the singer’s recent trip to Africa, where she visited clinics in Durban, South Africa, and Kampala, Uganda.

“You go and you experience it, and you really feel what’s happening and what we’re doing, how you help by just being there. You feel a connection to it,” Keys said. “And then musically, it’s the bringing together of a whole world of people that you will probably never see on the same stage ever again.”

Alicia Supports Madonna’s African Adoption of David

Tuesday, November 7th, 2006

Alicia Keys, who is hosting her annual Black Ball charity concert in New York City on Thursday, says such criticism is unfair and a disservice to those in Africa who need help.

“I think that’s horrible, and I think that really degrades and tries to discourage people who do have a voice, who do have power, who do have money, who do have the ability to reach out to people and get involved in situations,”the 25-year-old R&B singer told The Associated Press in a recent interview.

“I think if you make a choice to do something positive, that shouldn’t be diminished. I think that takes away from what’s actually going on.”

Keys, who has been involved in African causes for years, said celebrities have been in the forefront of charitable and political causes, and that’s how it should be. She also said celebrities have helped direct attention to the problems in many African nations.

“I do think that it has become more on people’s radars, (more…)

Smokin’ Aces Director Says Alicia Keys Give Him The Upper Hand

Friday, November 3rd, 2006

Alicia Keys in Smokin' AcesCarnahan also wanted a who’s-who of Hollywood superstars, and he got ‘em. Inhabiting various floors of this homicide-heavy hotel are Ryan Reynolds, , Andy Garcia, Ray Liotta, Taraji P. Henson and — in their movie debuts — Common and Alicia Keys.

“Alicia is a 26-year-old kid; we forget how young she is,” Carnahan said, admitting that he took a bit of a risk in casting her as a world-weary assassin. “You can see in her eyes that she’s an old soul. You look at her and you can tell that she’s been here before.”

“She was playing at the Paramount in Oakland [California], and I drove up there to see her,” Carnahan remembered of his pitch, which he made after her representatives put out the word that the Grammy winner was looking to explore an acting career. “I watched her show, which was fantastic, and I went backstage … I sat down and talked to her, and I said, ‘They are going to come to you with some jerk-off romantic comedy. Don’t do it. Read this instead!’ Well, she had read it at that point, and said, ‘Wow, it’s really intense,’ and I said, ‘Yeah, so, do you want to shake things up?’ ”
