With any mention of the name Alicia Keys, you’ll find a community of people who are hellbent on telling the world that she’s a homewrecker. They’re still carrying around old hurt from the way they think things went down with Mashonda Tifrere and Swizz Beatz ended their marriage. It’s a hurt that Mashonda herself no longer carries. So much so, that she’s literally written a book about how she, Keys and Swizz have blended their family.

She sat down with “The Breakfast Club,” to discuss not only the book but how she moved past some of the pain she broadcast in 2009. She mentions regretting the way she behaved at the time, posting on social media and writing about her feelings in the moment, rather than thinking ahead toward the future. She also speaks about the new relationship she’s forged with Swizz, Alicia and even their children.

See what she had to say on the following pages. It’s pretty mature and powerful stuff.

Why Blend: the book and the lifestyle

We have accomplished something our culture truly doesn’t understand. So it’s a gift from us to the world. Our children are going to look back, they’re going to read it and be proud.

You really have to do the self-work before you can get to the place where you can evolve.
