Celebrity Mom Quote of the Day: Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys sat down with iVillage this month to talk about her new album, Girl on Fire, and shared this quote about her baby boy, Eqypt.

He’s the best collaboration I’ve ever done, he’s the best song I ever wrote, the best experience I’ve ever had, the best show I’ve ever performed. He’s the best everything.

Alicia also dished on her desire to encourage women to get out and vote – no matter who they choose.

(Not voting) is a huge cop out…. You don’t have the right to complain about anything if you’re not out there doing something to change it. I really believe it’s been taught to us in many ways…as women…. I forgive us for sometimes reverting into these positions of feeling like we’re powerless or no one is really listening to us, but we are not powerless. We are the most influential people on the planet. Women. We influence everyone.

Alicia talks about her favorite parts of “Girl on Fire“:

A girl on fire is somebody who is completely themselves…. You don’t have to be like anyone. All you have to do is be like yourself. Find your passion.

There are so many (favorite lines)…I think my favorite part of the song is “she’s got feet on the ground and she’s burning it down. She’s got her head in the clouds and she’s not backing down.” She’s not backing down – for me that’s everything right now.
