Alicia Keys recently cleared up her past statements that suggested she was planning to retire by her 30th birthday. According to the 29-year-old, she was only talking about the option of retiring, but has no intention to do so any time soon. "I was just saying that I would like the option to be able to retire by 30. I feel very blessed… but I definitely have so much more to do. I have so many things that I want to do, so many more things I want to get involved in, important things I want to do… I have to perform, I love it so much."
Previously Alicia Keys hinted that she might want to hang up the mic and just collaborate with some artists. "Working with other people is definitely something I want to do more of," she said of her recent trend towards collaboration. "I love it a lot. It takes me out of my element into a whole other world. I'd love to collaboratewith Kings of Leon and M.I.A. I think would be crazy."
