Keys said that Blender magazine misrepresented her comments about gangsta rap in a recent interview.
"My comments about 'gangsta rap' were in no way trying to suggest that the government is responsible for creating this genre of rap music," she said.
Maybe Alicia can explain who's responsible for emo rock.
"My music is going to be written or recorded with or without critical acclaim. I appreciate it when it comes, but it will not stop me for a moment when I don't get it. It's unpredictable."
In other words, who cares what the critics say when you've already sold 120 million records.

When asked about touring with his band Motley Crue this summer, Lee said:
"The second we hit the stage, everything is exactly the same. But when the house lights go up these days, everybody leaves and goes back to their hotel room or bus or airplane or whatever. It's different now. People have families and kids."

"We use a bullet as a metaphor, and it's a very apt one. With ALS, you don't really know where it comes from, and you don't know when it might hit," Lansbury, the new spokeswoman for the ALS Association said.
ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, progressively paralyzes its victims and cruelly shortens their lives.
If anyone can solve a mystery, it's Ms. Lansbury.

Segel has become the next big name in comedy during the promotion of his upcoming film "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," produced by hit filmmaker Judd Apatow.
"Judd and I really collided on the idea that, for some reason, I'm able to remain likable while getting awfully close to the creepy line. It's one of my strange skills," Segel said.
Gotta love a guy who goes full frontal for laughs.

"We were just supposed to walk down the street. But there were so many people out there watching! And paparazzi, trying to get the first shot of the four of us together! I have felt overwhelmed before, but that day I felt like a Beatle," said Cattrall.
Yes, but could a Beatle cross Abby Road wearing a pair of Manolos?
