Tavis Smiley interview


Keys discusses her career and album, Girl on Fire, in this interview for PBS.

I want to be my best.

O Magazine interview


Keys speaks about why she left Columbia Records in an interview for O Magazine.

Once I saw that these people were completely disrespecting my musical creativity. I was devastated and crushed, like a blooming flower that’s trampled on. Nothing hurts more. I’m fortunate that my manager was confident. Some of our incredible legends will die with nothing. They were jerked.
