Has Alicia Keys Gained Weight Recently?
Alicia Keys’ appearance with Usher during the halftime show of the 2024 Super Bowl event has set the bees buzzing all over social media. Netizens think that there is certainly some change in the physical appearance of the 43-year-old singer – it seemed to them that she has gained some weight.
Usher is famous for having brought out many famous music artists as his guests, during his show at the Super Bowl LVIII halftime. This year, he brought along Alicia Keys, the winner of 16 Grammy Awards, and together they performed their duet track “My Boo” on stage. This song, “My Boo”, was released back in the year 2004 – it was a duet sung by Alicia Keys and Usher, which went to become Keys’ second single that reached the hilt of popularity to become number one.
The outfit that Alicia Keys wore on stage has grabbed massive attention for being another masterpiece from the house of Dolce & Gabbana. It is a stunning red bodysuit with embellishments and an equally ravishing red cape that Keys was wearing, and her radiant glowing skin that people could not take their eyes off! However, the audience could not ignore the fact that she seemed to have gained some extra pounds – they could even spot her belly through her body-hugging attire.
For the record, this is not the first time Alicia Keys has been the subject of people’s comments directed at her body. In the past, she has openly spoken about pushing back hard against our society’s impossible standards of beauty and physicality.
She got candid on how social media tends to create a delusional and “distorted reality” that people do not even realize they are consuming, and ultimately, it stealthily affects their perception of themselves too. Keys said that she has battled self-esteem problems since childhood, but has gradually learned to prioritize her psychological health and wellbeing, despite the negativities inflicted on her by social media.
Is Her Pregnancy Is The Reason Behind Weight Gain?
People’s observations of her seeming gain in body weight invariably set rumors flying across the Internet – and what else can it be other than suspicions of pregnancy? Yes, the public has set the rumor mills rolling, wondering whether Alicia Keys is pregnant in 2024 and expecting her third child.
However, there is no news or any form of data available on the Internet, which might even point us to confirm claims made by people that Alicia Keys is pregnant. There is no official statement offered, by the singer herself, to either deny or confirm the speculations about her expecting a baby this year.
So, no matter if people claim to have observed a baby bump through her stunning red D&G outfit, we cannot agree or deny that Alicia Keys is pregnant this year. Back in 2010, she got married to Swizz Beatz, the famous hip-hop artiste and producer – the couple are happy parents to two young sons.
Is She Dating Usher?
Alicia Keys and Usher’s association goes back many years to 2004 when the duo sang “My Boo”, their superhit duet. Since that time, on many occasions, there have been rumors suggesting that Usher and Keys are close to each other not merely as friends but romantically as well. And yesterday’s Super Bowl halftime performance only added fuel to this fire, as people started suspecting about them being a couple, owing to their alleged “closeness” on stage.
However, these suspicions are baseless because Alicia Keys is happily married to her husband Swizz Beatz and they are proud parents to their sons. On the other hand, Usher, the popular American R&B and pop singer-songwriter recently got a marriage license with his long-time girlfriend Jenn Goicoechea. The duo made their relationship public in 2019, and together, they also have two children – a daughter and a son.
To wrap up, all we can say is that there are no records indicating that Usher and Alicia Keys are in a relationship, despite social media being rife with such speculations.
