Alicia Keys Becomes an Author

Published: 2004-05-21
Be it for better or for worse, musicians will continue to branch into other areas of 'expertise' until the Earth spins out of control, rockets away from the Sun and eventually causes Hell to truly freeze over. Generally when super music stars enter into the realms of acting, dancing or writing, we are left with horrendous results. However, we will have to wait and see if the music world's newest authoress will be able to pull it off.

Alicia Keys recently signed a two book deal with G.P Putnam's Sons. One of the books will showcase Keys' poetry and song lyrics, and the other will be an autobiography. The poetry book will be titled 'Songbook' and will be released in November of this year in hardback. Alicia Keys' own life story captured in 'The Diary of Alicia Keys' will not be appearing in stores until next fall. The autobiography will house all of Keys' – you've guessed it – diary entries.

According to MTV, Keys also has aspirations of fictional prose. Not writing it, but being the star of a few fables herself. The series she has in mind would be called 'Alicia Keys' Street Mysteries' and would have storylines in the vein of 'Nancy Drew'. Each book would be named after an Alicia Keys song.

She may be able to pull off poetry and an autobiography, but mysteries?
