Alicia Keys is featured in W Magazines June 2011 issue reflecting on the 10 year anniversary of her Songs In A Minor LP which is due to be re-released in a box-set this summer. Check out pics and excerpts from her interview after the jump....

Alicia on her entry to the music scene: 

“I just wanted to be who I was, which was like so many other girls I knew. We grew up in the city, had a hard edge and obstacles to overcome, but we were still young and beautiful. I didn’t want to be all dressed up, all made up—I wanted to be myself, which hadn’t been done before.”

Alica on being in control of her image and music:

“I was a young girl with very strong ideas but no experience. I just knew that everything else I was doing was wrong—that all the suggestions weren’t what was in my mind, they weren’t what it was meant to be.”

She added:

“How terrible would it have been if I had come out with some watered-down version of who I am? People fell in love with the real me, and I still feel blessed that that was how the journey began.”
