Alicia Keys has revealed that she couldn’t stand the man who would go on to become her husband, insisting there was no love at first sight when she met Swizz Beatz….
In the July issue of Marie Claire UK, Alicia Keys says she was less than enthralled when she met Swizz Beatz. "Honestly I didn't really like him that much. I thought he was too ostentatious," Alicia says of the flashy rapper and producer, who is now her husband.
"Swizz will have the fastest car, the biggest jewelery, the loudest jacket; everything with him is really over the top," she tells the magazine. "I used to see him and think, 'He is so annoying.'"
Over time though, Alicia's feelings changed. On her Girl on Fire track "That's When I Knew," Alicia sings about the moment she found herself in love. That's "definitely an ode to my husband," she says of the song, which includes the lyrics, "When you barely held my hand I was overcome/ With feelings I don't understand/ Not in a million years I didn't think that we'd be here."
Alicia and Swizz will celebrate their third wedding anniversary next month.
Alicia says, "I think we've taught each other a lot... He's taught me to live more fully and I think I've taught him to live more deeply."
