No matter how highly Alicia Keys thinks of herself, she isn't a big enough star to grace the cover of GLAMOUR magazine by herself. The gangsta B-list singer, who used to wear a gold AK47 rifle on a chain around her neck, shares the October 2011 cover with A-list actresses Demi Moore (Ashton's wife), and Jennifer Aniston.

On why her time in Egypt (the country) inspired her to create a baby:
"It was a time of transition. There were certain people [I was working with] who weren’t right. I had friends who weren’t right anymore. I was tired and I had overworked myself and burnt myself out. So I went to Egypt by myself. When I saw what was built there, it made me understand how powerful we are, that we can create anything. And I felt like I needed to create things that were timeless too." Source

    So would that mean the other two aren't big enough for a cover as well Sandra?

    Something about that cover ain't right I just can't pinpoint it yet :thinking:

    Alicia, alicia, alica :nono: ... I think I'll sit back on this post :popcorn:

    They are all promoting the same project so it makes since they would share the cover. :shrug:

  • RoderickXYZ

    I am not sure what the title implies.

    Both Jennifer Aniston and Demi Moore were bigger stars in their day than Alicia Keys has been at the peak of her career so if anyone would be insulted it should be Jennifer since she has a better career than the other two.

  • Yardgirl

    @mrsloveleigh: That's what I said!! :shrug:

    I looked at it another way. She is on the cover with 2 A listers so that makes her an A list too (B if you want call her that but so what) :shrug:

    AK thighs are photoshopped and the first pic looks like she was photoshopped in

    Alicia's pic looks like it was added after the fact. She looks almost 3-D like on the pic.

    I see how on the cover they got the Alicia "lottery-ballish eye" at an angle (where is my Pryn???)...but nerwp not on the full on shot with the other ladies. Can see it justa good there.

  • rjk8

    Sorry, but to be on the cover and thought of as an equal with those women is a hell of an accomplishment. At one point each one of them was the IT white girl.

  • GAGIRL87

    Cha :hug: I love your website boo keep up the good work :wink: you had me dying laughing at the kid who told his mom lets go??? wtf how they been? :hahaha:

    @ Luscious when you figure it out will you let me know what is :(

  • mrsloveleigh

    I agree with what someone said in one of the Beyonce posts. Sandra writes these types of posts because she knows they will generate lots of hits even if it's folks saying she is wrong. A hit is a hit which is good for her site but it seems-IMO-people are getting tired of the snide remarks. Some of the stuff is cringe worthy

    All this negativity. Even though I am not an Alicia Keys fan, surely u know when she was wearing those chains and ear rings, she also wasnt wearing dresses. We all go through rough patches. She was just being her.

  • cheeks8683

    diversity my booty...it would be diverse if they slapped zoe saldana or Jlo on the cover too, or subtract demi or jennifer...

  • CFREE

    It does look like they photoshopped Keys in that 1st pic, I think the ladies photograph nicely together tho

    I know Jen Anniston has but I'm not sure about Demi

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Birdshu Bird

    Let me get this straight. She's a b-lister because she is sharing the cover with them, but they still get to be called a-listers even though they are also sharing the cover? I don't think so my British sista. Like it or not Alicia is an a-lister and that is why she is sharing the cover with two other a-listers.

  • brenden

    No matter how highly she thinks of herself???? Are we supposed to walk around thinking lowly of ourselves? Should I wake up crying every day because I have chronic ithcy ball syndrome? Should I kill myself because my lrg belly prohibits me from identifying my penis? My hairline that starts behind my ears. Ears that house 2 rather large dangling keloids from where I let my mama pierce them? No. The power of positive thinking. Ever heard of the secret? I look in the mirror every morning and tell myself-Brenden, youze abad Bit*h...And you know what? I am :-)
    Alicia has every right to think higly of herself. Chronic acne problems, severe cankleitis, a limited singing range, and a meerkat for a husband has not stopped her from maximizing her potential. Kudos to her...

  • mrsloveleigh

    Sometimes I wonder if Sandra is really white cause you sure dog the sista's out!!! As a black woman I would think that you would want to uplift not be a hurt.

    ***********************

    These women are totally equally yoked with Jennifer being the weakest link. She certainly has not had the biggest career. She was a TV actress on a successful show with an ensemble cast. Other than all the talk about her hairstyle, she didn't outshine her castmates. Try as she might she has been a box office flop, but they keep giving her opportunities for some reason. Demi Moore was the female Will Smith/Tom Cruise of her day. Halle Berry hasn't even reached her level let alone Jen. Aniston doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence really.

    I'm not sure if we are forgetting or if we are not giving Alicia credit because she's black and a singer, but She has yet to put out a CD that came anywhere close to flopping. I can't say with 100% certainty, but my guess is every album she has released has gone platinum. She is a headliner. You won't see her opening for anyone unless she chooses to be charitable in that way. She is an A-Lister and better at what she does than Jen is at what she does.

    I co-sign everything you said. Jen is "pitied" for being moderately attractive and being treated like a used condom by Brad Pitt.

    At this point, her most "successful" accomplishment was having her husband leave her for a more attractive woman. That's when she started gettting all the magazine covers and chit. :shrugs:

    This is sadly true. And they keep rubbing it in her face dont they...All the kids are cute, even the ones that are technically theirs. U know ur husbend has left u for a bad bish if the fact that she stole a married man was a non-factor when she was deemed the goodwill ambassador or some ish to every 3rd world country she visits...Shoot they did a cover story on them for Good Morning America just today....

    Her most successful accomplishment was Friends. Her movie career has been steady but no where near as successful
