Before They Were Stars!
November 23rd, 2012
Alicia Keys thinks her two-year-old son is a little diva. The Girl On Fire singer is already predicting her two-year-old son Egypt, whose father is music producer Swizz Beatz, will be a huge “pain in the ass” when he’s older and says he loves being the centre of attention and showcasing his vocal skills whenever possible.
Alicia laughed “He’s definitely going to be a pain in the ass! I don’t know where he gets it from but he’s a little boy on fire. Egypt loves to sing and perform already. He sings Twinkle Twinkle Little Star which is the cutest thing as he only knows half the words.”
The 31-year-old R&B superstar, who has been married to Swizz for over two years, also revealed the tiny tot stole the show at a recent gig and was milking his time in the limelight standing at the side of the stage while she performed. In an interview in The Sun newspaper, Alicia recounted “I did my very first show back recently and Egypt was on the side of the stage with his daddy. All the crowd were cheering and applauding and I was like, ‘Wow, they’re really into it!’ Then I walked off stage for my break and they were still cheering. I looked behind to see Egypt blowing kisses and waving to the crowd. And I smiled and said to myself, ‘That’s my boy. Go get ‘em.’ ”Tweet
