You're not alone if, upon seeing the cover art for Alicia Keys' new album on Thursday, you assumed the singer must have been spending sleepless nights devouring Suzanne Collins' "Hunger Games" trilogy.
"Girl on Fire"? Come on - obvious reference to Katniss Everdeen, right? Yeah ... not so much.
When Entertainment Weekly asked Keys if her title had anything to do with the books or the film adaptations, the songstress revealed that no, it doesn't, but not for lack of trying.
"It was such a shock when I heard about 'The Hunger Games' - I wasn't aware of the book at that point. And I didn't realize that, I guess, that's what they call the one girl," Keys said. "So we tried very hard to make it work and put the song in - and to put parts of what I was developing in with the movie. Anyway, obviously it came out way too early, so the timing wasn't right. But no, it has nothing to do with 'The Hunger Games.'"
Instead, it's a reference to "that powerful feeling," Keys said, noting that this "album represents a new me in every way."
Understandable, considering that Keys is also a relatively new mom to son Egypt, nearly 2, whom she thinks might have to make a Blue Ivy-esque cameo on a song one of these days - or perhaps even team up with the Knowles-Carter progeny.
When EW joked about the prospect of a Blue Ivy/Egypt album, Keys responded with a laugh, "I'm telling you, I think that they're going to have a big future."
Thanks for this and I would say that So we tried very hard to make it work and put the song in – and to put parts of what I was developing in with the movie. Anyway, obviously it came out way too early, really thanks
People are growing by the time, they are getting to know about the fact that happiness is the best tool to live a perfect life. You will automatically grow happiness as your mind and thinking gets expand.It’s difficult to understand that how to make your life tension free, we search around for things that can make us happy but at the end we stay unsatisfied. We don’t know what makes us happy, but there times comes when you get to know that what are your interest and likes.

Alicia also be proud of your white background and people will respect you and maybe buy your music...from a biracial male here who also loves his white heritage....
and that thing on your forehead is ridiculous to say the least!
i've heard the new song 5 times this morning..... wow, it's.... terrible. AK is beautiful, but her music is on the decline. who's writing this stuff? you're fired.
Keep on hatin you jealous ppl... she is as beautiful as the whole universe and has been blessed with a gift no one else has....dats it
i have never read more ignorant comments than those i have on this article, i swear some people's superiority complex's make them too stupid to properly function.
Alicia Keys is a talented artist, her race is irrevelant , and i am glad to see her putting out new work.
Alicia Keys is a beautiful biracial girl. I thought it was so stupid in one of her music videos that she was dating a white guy and the premise of the video was that it was 'taboo' and frowned upon! LOL> She is fricking white herself! How stupid are people?!?!
It looks like someone blew a load on her forehead and it dried there.
Alicia Keys is a self-hating mixed person. She denies the fact that she is half white and it makes people sick. Stand up for what you are and don't cater to those racist black people who try to claim biracial people. Don't be ignorant like some of them are.
Reblogged this on lady228's Blog.
she needs to do something different this album . she is fading a bit. A saw her in 2004 in atlantic city in concert and she was great.
Susan has cancer and Obama shut down all state-approved Medical Marijuana Dispensaries in San Diego... Susan is in great pain and Obama wants her to suffer... Obama is a LIAR.
she's quite beautiful and i love the way she sings
We get Ice Cream once a week at Graterford prison.
She is so tall. WOW!

Lol, glad it was water & not some red wine or something that would stain! So, do ya think that 3rd eye has tunnel vision? (HaHa)
Opps, meant to reply to Electra.
I think that is just her necklace. She must have a fat head, cause she couldn't get it all the way over her head. lol... Or maybe it makes her mystical, and she can see into the future. Who really knows! Only the third eye knows. lol
@ah...Too funny, I lol!
Lol..tunnel vision, just might be. @ah..lol. yes, only the third eye knows.
BRing it alicia! You always do.
The guy holding that umbrella should loosen up his grip, his hand is turning white.
Lmfao..spitting out my drink...that's bc he is white!!!
I'm more concerned about that thing on her head. Is that her third eye?
Sorry Electra, didn't mean for you to spit your drink...hope you didn't get any on you. Lol. I know he's white, just meant he was cutting off his circulation w/that grip on the umbrella. 3rd eye, lmao!
