Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Alicia, who recently released her new, self-titled album, reflected on their relationship, saying: "It feels like two years. It goes by so fast. We are so connected and we have such a beautiful bond."

Alicia added that she can't believe she gets to "wake up next to each other like, 'What are you doing here? Whoa, I can't believe I am with you, man!' It feels really really cool."

The "Girl on Fire" singer shared: "What is so amazing is, both my husband and I, we started music so young. We were 14 and 15 years old when we first started everything.

"So it is really incredible to just see him creating this amazing (livestream vocal battle series) Verzuz platform with Timbaland, and for us to just both be at our height and place where we have really continued to grow and evolve."

Alicia added: "It is an honor to do that together and to be able to do that with our first loves. Each of our first loves is music, and to be able to do that continuously and for there to be genuine love and real connection, that's incredible."

Swizz, 42, began trending on Black Twitter for insulting Ms. Jackson. After the backlash, Swizz took to Instagram blog The Shaderoom to explain that he didn't think the good fit was 49-year-old Missy Elliott, whose name should not be spoken in the same breath as 54-year-old Janet.

"LETS BE CLEAR. I don't think Missy & Janet is a good match up at all! Much love to Janet she's ICON but I just didn't feel that was a good match up. Janet got hits on hits but she should have a better person to celebrate with that's all. Blessings...."

Question: Do you agree with Swizz?

Music producer Swizz Beatz dropped hints that his baby mama, Jahna Sebastian, is mentally unstable.

The Russian singer lashed out at Swizz's wife, Alicia Keys, in a lengthy Instagram post on Monday.

Jahna, who shares 9-year-old daughter Nicole Dean with Swizz, put Alicia on blast for "forcing" Nicole to call her "Umi," which means "Mother" in Arabic.

Jahna also bashed Alicia for allowing Nicole to have her own iPhone - which Jahna believes is inappropriate for a minor child. She said Alicia overstepped her boundaries as a stepparent by registering the minor child on the social media app TikTok.

Jahna noted that only the biological parent - not the stepparent - can register social media accounts for minor children.

But in a social media post, Swizz, 41, took the blame for supplying his daughter with an iPhone so she can keep in contact with her mother - and not call him.

In a follow-up post, Swizz told Jahna she knows his house phone number and she should call him if he wants to talk.

In a new Instagram post, Swizz, who is not a mental health professional, hinted that Jahna has mental health issues.

British singer Jahna Sebastian lashed out at Alicia Keys in a lengthy Instagram post on Monday. Jahna, who shares 9-year-old daughter Nicole Dean with Alicia's husband, Swizz Beatz, checked Alicia for "forcing" Nicole to call her "Umi," which means "Mother" in Arabic.

Jahna also bashed Alicia for allowing Nicole to have her own iPhone - which Jahna believes is inappropriate for a minor child. She said Alicia overstepped her boundaries as a stepparent by registering the minor child on the social media app TikTok.

Jahna noted that only the biological parent - not the stepparent - can register social media accounts for minor children.

"I am speaking up now. There are women in the same position," Jahna wrote. "Women in general have been constantly told throughout history to not say anything, when there have been issues. This is the time for the truth."

She continued:

"This is the rule in my family. I am the only Mother to my child. I am the One raising her, who gave her life, British Citizenship, knowledge, and everything else. I am not only the biological mother, I am THE MOTHER.

"This will remain forever. I am the one who feeds her, is raising her, who came out through the hard times with her and for her, taught her to be a great human being and everything about life. I am the Only Mother to my daughter. No one else will be called any kind of 'mom' name in English, Arabic, not an 'Umi' or anything else in other language by her."

But rather than sympathize with a mom who thinks her only child is being manipulated by a wealthy celebrity, Alicia's fans dragged Jahna for filth.

One Instagram user wrote:

"Do not post about Alicia Keys and not expect the fans to blow you up. Your music sucks and so does your makeup. I'd be bitter too if I was you."

Alicia Keys says her four-year-old son Genesis worries he will be bullied for wearing rainbow fingernail polish.

It all started in August when Alicia, 38, posted Instagram images of her son wearing fingernail polish. She captioned the images "Family time is the BEST time".

But her followers were drawn to the little boy's painted fingernails. "Bye with this foolishness," wrote one disgusted follower.

"This is only my opinion no disrespect. This should have been a teaching moment. I believe each generation has demons to fight but l am from the era [I] don't recall one man or young boy l know wanting to wear nail polish, lipstick, dresses ect. This has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. I know times has changed but we must become cognizant of the fact our children and some adults emulate what we see".

Another user wrote:

"Whatever happened to tonka trucks and baseball bats etc for a 4yr old. Dear Parents it's time to do better. We are who God created boy, girl, man and woman and we can't change that and it's definitely not up for debate. As for the kids making fun of him, well what else do you expect from a kid when even they know it's not normal. It's really sad that this generation if children will miss out on the joy of JUST BEING A KID in this world of acceptance".

On Tuesday, Alicia expressed her frustration in a video posted on Instagram along with the caption, "Less Labels, More Expressions. Been thinking about how over labeled and over judged we all are... can u feel me??".

She said she took her son to the nail salon and he was excited to have his nails painted in rainbow colors, but he hesitated because he was concerned about the public reaction.

"Four years old. He's four and he already understands the concept that someone's gonna judge him because he chose rainbow color on his nails," Alicia told her followers.

She told the boy to stick with his decision to paint his nails in the rainbow colors.

"You chose it, you like it, you do it," she said before telling him that a lot of men painted their nails too. "It's not like some strange thing that you only do," she added.

"That made him feel better," she said.

"But it just got me to thinking how completely judged we are all the time. The way I see it, there is masculine and feminine energies inside of us all and that's period. That's how it is. And it gets concerning to me that we can't just explore these different sides of ourselves."

Alicia then opened up about her own inner struggles to suppress her masculine side.

"Even for me myself, I oftentimes express the masculine energy that's inside of me. And it's very natural to me. That's how I feel. We should be able to explore and express them however we want to."

Needless to say, her followers went IN.

One follower wrote:

"Why would you take your son to go get his nails done at 4? He should have been with his father @aliciakeys so if your husband comes back home with a lace front wig nails and hair done and now sleeps with men is he expressing himself and his feminine energy ... things to think about".
