After LESS than a year as their "global creative director", Alicia Keys has severed ties with BlackBerry.
Though Alicia was hired to launch the BlackBerry 10 OS and "inspire the future", the company released a statement, this week, about the end of their working relationship saying,
"BlackBerry and Alicia Keys have completed our year-long collaboration. We thank Alicia for her many contributions including providing creative direction for the BlackBerry Keep Moving Project which attracted more than 40 million visits, advocating for women in STEM and launching the BlackBerry Scholars Program. We have enjoyed the opportunity to work with such an incredibly talented and passionate individual.”Oh wells.....we wonder if AK will continue to pull out her BlackBerry during live performances of "You Don't Know My Name" like she did Australia last month?
In other Beatz......
The men of Beatz (Swizz, sons Prince Nasir Dean and Egypt and Cole Cook (Alicia's brother) spent the holidays in Aspen.
Of course.....they flew by private jet.
The fellas were also joined by Swizz's friend a business associate Grady Spivey. Swizz tweeted, "#Deansvacationpt2 #aspenflow #famfuntime #thespiveys"
A family that hits the slopes together....stays together.
