How Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz Ended Up Making Beautiful Music


Not exactly the stuff of fairytales, but nothing that couldn’t be overcome with the right mix of honesty and romance, something that’s proven to be a speciality for Swizz. 

There was the time he had Keys’ likeness tattooed on his arm (“It’s so beautiful,” she told Wendy Williams, calling it her favorite gift) and, of course, the move he made just ahead of her 29th birthday in January 2010. Proposing with a reported seven-carat diamond, he whisked her off to Hawaii to celebrate and then presented her with another gift. 

“I lifted the cardboard flaps and looked inside to see several large canisters. ‘I’ve always wanted you to be my canvas,’ he whispered. The canisters were full of body paint, in every vibrant color imaginable,” she shared in her autobiography. “Later, stroke by stroke in the shadows of dusk, he turned me into his masterpiece, covering me in swirls of yellows, reds and purples. Never have I experienced anything more sensual. Which is why, when I missed my period a few weeks later, I wasn’t exactly surprised. As that winter gave way to spring, we relished two pleasures: the engagement and the pregnancy.”
