Alicia Talks About The Highs and Lows    ·    December 15th, 2007

Alicia Keys, Giant MagazineA little secrecy can be a good thing in guarding one’s love life, says Alicia Keys – but not such a good thing when it comes to dealing with depression.

Asked by Giant magazine about a rumored romance with her producer, the singer replies, “That’s what they’ve been saying for a while now, but I don’t usually address that question. Oprah told me never to tell – and I can’t disobey Oprah!”

Keys, 26, has been getting that a lot lately. On Tuesday, Uma Thurman offered similar advice to Keys when a personal question slipped through at a press conference for the Nobel Peace Prize concert.

She will admit this much about her love life: “I definitely found my partner. I know he is somebody who will always be special to me and that we’re always going to be in each other’s lives.”

Keys says she even tends to be secretive within a relationship – at least at first. “It’s my nature to let them show me who they are first before I show them who I am,” she says. “But once I’m in love with somebody, I’m the best girlfriend you could ever have.”

There have been times, though, when her tendency to hold back was emotionally draining – when she battled depression.

“I was feeling so sad all the time, and I couldn’t shake it,” she says. “I started burying my feelings, and it got to a point where I couldn’t even tell my family or my friends, ‘I’m twisted,’ or ‘I’m exhausted,’ or ‘I’m so angry.’ … I became a master of putting up the wall so that I was unreadable.”

Keys recently told Uptown Magazine that she “had to learn to let go” to overcome her depression.

    Dear Ms.Keys,
    I truelly hope you don’t feel depressed anymore. My mom always told me that its not good to keep things inside, so my best advice to tell you is to either talk to your mom (that always helps me because your mom will never judge you no matter what she’s there for you.)Or you could get a theripist or write in a journal. I really hope you do feel better. But if you think about it with your new CD some 15 year old girl living in georgia could feel the same way, so with your new CD you can hear the emotion and time you put into it. So you could put some teen out of her misery.

    Love Always,
    Danielle Ledwell-Mathis
