Alicia Keys Reveals Belief in Aliens

Alicia Keys Reveals Belief in Aliens

"I've met some serious aliens," singer says.

Published October 8, 2013

Alicia Keys has seen aliens and isn't against heading to space, the multi-Grammy winner revealed in a lighthearted interview with BuzzfeedAsked plainly if she believed in aliens, the New Yorker responded, "Yeah I do," with a laugh.

"I’ve met some serious aliens in my life, for sure," said Keys. "I’m sure you’ve seen a UFO. Haven’t all of us seen something flying in the sky, and it’s at some random time of night that doesn’t make sense, and it’s not the shape of a plane?"

There are rules to space travel, though, she said. The energy has to be right. "I don’t know if I’d go with an alien to space. I would have to feel the alien's vibe. I'm a vibe person. If it was ET, I may go [laughs]."

Provided that she's invited to break through the Earth's atmosphere, the "Superwoman" singer's phobia could be an issue. "I’m secretly afraid of heights," Keys admitted recounting a roller-coaster ride at Six Flags Great Adventure. She of course travels the globe via airplanes, but explained that the fear is more about a potential free fall. "Roller-coaster heights, hanging from something really high. I’m just really freaked out."

Otherworldly creatures and facing fears isn't the only thing Keys has on the brain. The mother of 2-year-old son Egypt Daoud Dean is executive producing the movie The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Peete starring Jennifer Hudson and is gearing up to host her annual Keep A Child Alive charity black ball in New York City next month. This year is the organization's 10-year celebration.
