Alicia Keys needs to shut up

It has been quite some time since I read about a celebrity who needs to shut up, but Alicia Keys has come to the rescue! In an interview with Blender magazine, Keys apparently says that Gangsta rap was a ploy to convince black people to kill each other and that it didn't actually exist, as well as opining that the feud between Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. was "fueled by the government and the media, to stop another great black leader from existing." Presumably that "great black leader" was Tupac, although why couldn't it have been Biggie?

Now, I'm sure Ms. Keys is a wonderful person, and she made such a cute couple with Common in Smokin' Aces, but does she really believe that? I'll have to ask Ice Cube if "Fuck tha Police" was just a ploy to convince black people to kill each other. I wonder what he would say.

You're free to exercise your first amendment rights, Ms. Keys, but in this case, I think you should just shut up.

Look at it this way Greg, as long as celebrities can mouth off about their cockamamie conspiracy theories and not get disappeared in the middle of the night or hauled off to secret CIA prisons, you know we're not doing that bad.
Now, why does she hate NY? That I have a problem with.

That's very true, Steve. I wonder if Ms. Keys appreciates that.

For someone who's so down on the "gangsta" mentality, she sure seems to milk it for record sales. Granted, se only brushes with it lightly, but it's there. Just listen to the way she speaks. She's a highly-educated and very smart girl, yet she talks like someone from the projects. Because it sells.
