I Was Hacked! Alicia Keys Says That iPhone Tweet Was Really Someone Else

When Alicia Keys was named global creative director for BlackBerry just a couple of weeks ago, people were quick to point out that the singer had declared herself an “iPhone junky” a year ago. During that BlackBerry event, where the BlackBerry 10 platform was unveiled along with two new phones, she joined company CEO Thorsten Heins on stage to crow about BlackBerry.

So what a shocker then that another tweet was posted on her account from an iPhone yesterday.


(We took a quick look and couldn’t find the @Drake tweet she’s talking about here.)

Seems weird that someone would hack Alicia Keys’ account to simply post something about Drake, so we’ll have to share Business Insider’s skepticism on this one.

Do you think this hacking happened? And does it even matter?

    Oh please! Alicia Keys, you just lost all credibility. You sold your soul for a paycheck. How can you be the ‘creative director’ for blackberry when clearly it’s not your top preference. Yes you may own a blackberry but I highly doubt it’s the phone you use most frequently. And now when you are caught you resort to lying? How sad! You choose to hawk a product and be the face of a brand that you are not proud of, and expect your loyal fans, people who have kept you relevant in the business to follow your lead and spend their hard-earned money on something that you don’t even use! Shame on you Alicia! Do you really need the money that badly??

    This whole ‘I was hacked’ thing needs to stop, because it is often misused anyway.

      It’s so overused that I can’t see how it continues to work.

        I didn’t say overused. I said misused.
