    Say it like it is Says:


    Badnote-Alicia Keys isso pretty.Why does she make herself look more times than not,so ugly?
    What is that old sharecropper,braided **** on her forehead?

    She has pretty,straight/curly hair.
    Her face is so pretty,but cute,which is good because she looks regular,average,youthful in her face.She does not look botoxed or older than her years.She could easliy pass for no older 21- 22yrs.
    Who are are stylists,whatever?
    This outfit is ugly and that hair is dreadful.

    Love the song Says:

    I wish he would look as comfortable and smile as much when he is with his wife. When I see him and his wife, it seems like such a put on. He seems more relaxed, cheerful and fun when he’s with Alicia or Rhi Rhi. The song is great. They look like they have really good chemistry.

    Why is main cast of ‘Gossip Girl’ ALL WHITE? As a multiracial person should I cry “racist” aswell? Ofcourse that’s just one of many examples. BUT, It’s the first thing that popped into mind ’cause I was watching it this morning. We could go on and on if you want to turn this into a discussion of race. But, let’s not.
    Anyway, I really like the song. However, the video could have been so much better.

    Talk about alienation what about the 5,000,000,000+ so people in the world that aren’t from “New York” in the world. These people are small minded have they ever opened an eye to anything but they own simple bullshit lives?

    Jay Z is talentless and ugly. Alicia, gawd, I could never stand her voice or her lame piano playing or the Elvis sneer of her smile. HOWEVER, her vocals in the chorus here are really catchy and atmospheric and this is the only redeeming quality of this otherwise piece of crap song. She sticks in my head with this one, definitely.

    I like the song but the video isn’t spectacular. I expected much more, knowing that NY is a beautiful city… they could have done more in my opinion.
    And too bad we can’t really see Alicia Keys’ face…
