Alicia Keys directionless' at first


Alicia Keys felt “directionless” when she first landed a record deal.
The 30-year-old singer was just 16 when she was given her first contract and admits people often forgot about her young age and she struggled at times to know where to turn.
“I started in this business so young I was just a girl. To keep your head together… I felt directionless, like a chicken with its head cut off,” she said.
“You feel like everyone wants a piece of you, everything is available to you, and it doesn’t matter that you’re only 16.”
The Empire State of Mind hitmaker also admits she couldn’t understand why some reviews of her last album The Element of Freedom criticized her lack of “passion”, insisting she is always “truly primal” in her work.
“That’s just a reviewer’s opinion. I find myself to be truly primal and passionate. Everything I do comes from a primal place,” she added.
