Alicia understands lesbian rumors    ·    November 5th, 2007

Alicia Keys can understand why she was labelled a lesbian at the beginning of her career - because she was “rough around the ages”.

The singer’s sexuality was the subject of much speculation after the release of her 2001 debut album Songs In A Minor.

Keys is adamant she isn’t gay but realises her appearance and attitude may have led people to draw their own conclusions.

She says: “I was definitely rough around the edges. I look back at certain interviews and I’m like, ‘Damn! Did I have to look that hard? Did I have to do my hair that way?’

“I could see why people couldn’t see the diamond in the rough. I didn’t take it to heart. I know what I am. I know it’s not true.”

    So, wait, you are implying that lesbians are “rough around the edges”? You trying to set the queer community back 40 years or something? Hell, even if you aren’t gay (even though I know a girl you hit on), don’t perpetuate these ridiculous stereotypes. And growing up in NYC, going to Columbia, I know you have some queer friends at least. There goes my business and hopefully others’ as well.

  12. Nicole Meyer Says:

    Honestly i hope she is gay. I dont think that by being who she really is would change how she produces music. So who cares its her life let her be

  13. Nicole Meyer Says:

    Honestly I hope she is gay. Regradless of who she is or what she is she will still produce amazing music. People need to leave her be and let her do her thing. Nothing woring with being gay (I am and im hot so)
