Alicia Keys and husband, producer-rapper Swizz Beatz hold a protest outside the Nigerian Consulate

Singer Alicia Keys and her music producer husband Swizz Beatz are not satisfied with Nigeria's response to the plight of 200-plus school girls who were abducted by Boko Haram rebels in April. Alicia and Swizz held a protest outside the Nigerian Consulate to demand the return of the girls.

    It is commendable of Alicia to be out there protesting for this issue, esp with her being in her (what appears to be) 2nd trimester. Kudos to her.

    both. I think celebs pick causes that they really dont have to do anything for. her feet might be too swole to march in ferguson so she basically just went outside and made a sign in front of her own house. then went back and took a nap like Keya when she got tired. :zzz:

    she could have rescued somebody right here in the city. :rolleyes:

    but ok, Alicia :thumbsup:

    I think it has more to do with the "sensationalism" of international or global issues. It puts them in an even bigger spotlight and enlarges their platform. The people who need help are then put on the map and encouraged to start go fund me accounts. The starrh looks like a hero, which will generate more revenue for them. Everybody wins. :rofl:
