Alicia Keys On Playing Gay

akeys.jpg
Alicia Keys didn’t originally want to play gay in Smokin’ Aces.

As the 27-year old singer read the script, however, she began to see things in a different light. She tells Complex:

…The more I read, the more I got it. I was like, “Wow, there’s nothing people will expect from me less than this.” And that’s what I wanted when it came to the film. I don’t want to be the singing, piano-playing “girl role.” I want to be something that’s not who I am.

Funny, ’cause we always thought you were a lesbian. This straight business sure does come as a surprise.
