Alicia Keys, Grammy Award winner, wife to super producer Swizz Beats, and first time mom to baby Egypt gets up close and personal with host Lara Logan to discuss mommy-hood on the CBS News special “Person To Person,” which airs on November 23 at 10/9c, on the CBS Television Network.
Keys tells Logan:
Motherhood changes everything. “Perspectives change. I think priorities change. I mean I was such a different person seven years ago. Nothing would stop me from traipsing from here to London to LA and back to London to LA in three days and not sleep and go. And it was, I just thought, that was everything… But to have time to spend with my family and to have my son, it’s like perspectives change a bit. It’s like hold up, let’s not kill ourselves here.”
Not short of being in album promotion mode, Keys also notes about her hit single “Girl on Fire”:
“it is really about … being yourself … It’s about finding what you feel and feel passionate about, finding your path to getting there. And not just being deterred, not being swayed from that. It’s really just being who you are.” It’s a new mentality for me. It’s a new day for me… and a time. I really feel a lot more centered than I’ve ever felt before. And I feel a lot more clear and in control. I feel like I know what I want and I know what I don’t want.”
We totally agree that motherhood changes everything. Do you?
