VMAs, A Family Outing For Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz made the MTV Video Music Awards a family affair, bringing their son, Egypt who will be two-years-old next month, to the Staples Center for the show. While it sure made for some cute photos, Egypt on the stage, Egypt hugging mommy after her performance, some viewers were surprised to see the little guy there since the VMAs aren't exactly a family friendly affair.
During Thursday night's show, Keys and Beatz had Egypt, who was sucking a pacifier, plopped on their laps while Pink performed her new song "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)". The little guy was without noise-blocking earphones, so let's hope mom covered his ears, especially when Pink sang some of the song's curse words.
Egypt's attendance at the show didn't go unnoticed especially on Twitter. "Alicia Keys is bringing her son to the award show with a pacifier in his mouth? Errr ever heard of a nanny?" tweeted @siSipELebe during the show. @cailynjoyce expressed a similar sentiment, writing, "Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats son is addddooorrable but ya couldn't spring for a sitter?" But those comments were outnumbered by fans who loved seeing the "cute", "sweet" baby in the audience. "The best thing about Alicia Keys performance was seeing her son," posted @Mitchell Rossee.
