Alicia Keys Flaunts Fit Physique in a Bikini

Someone's been working on their fitness.

Alicia Keys, 31, flaunted a perfectly toned physique in a teeny, weeny red and black two-piece bikini on Instagram this week.

Showing off her famous curves, the mommy to son Egypt – who will be 2 years old in October – is photographed by her hubby Swizz Beatz for a retro post that he captions, "My Bond Girl:) 007 AK47."

The hip-hop producer, 33, has a habit of posting pictures of his lady love. Just a few messages before the bikini shot, he showed off his wife's flawless, makeup-free face.

Jermaine Paul 'Shocked' over Winning The Voice

Originally posted 05/09/2012 11:40AM

Just before host Carson Daly announced Tuesday night that Team Blake's Jermaine Paul was the winner of this season's The Voice on NBC, Paul tells PEOPLE that he "couldn't look at anybody and allow myself not to believe. In that moment I prayed."

Despite Monday night's phenomenal final performance, when he sang R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly," Paul says his confidence was low going into the finale.

"I didn't feel good about the overall outcome," he says. "I didn't know if I was going to win or not."

Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz Bid Against Each Other at Charity Auction

Originally posted 05/07/2012 06:00AM

Alicia Keys laughed and giggled the night away with pal La La Anthony at the annual Bronx Charter School for the Arts auction.

The ladies were joined by their husbands – Carmelo Anthony and Swizz Beatz – and an onlooker tells us, "Alicia and Swizz looked more in love than ever, gazing into each other's eyes and kissing like no one was watching."

But their affectionate demeanor didn't stop the duo, who attended with 6-year-old song Kaseem Jr. (from Swizz's previous marriage), from bidding against each other for a guitar signed by the Rolling Stones during the Ciroc Vodka-sponsored event.

In the end, though, Keys ended up taking home a penguin drawing created in collaboration between her husband and some schoolchildren, and Swizz took a turn spinning tracks behind the deejay booth at the party.

Whitney Houston Remembered in Speeches and Song

Originally posted 02/18/2012 04:40PM

Whitney Houston's funeral brought the singer back to where it all began – the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J., where she performed as a child in the choir.

On Saturday, those same walls were filled with music and stories of the star who touched so many lives in her 48 years.

With tears and laughter, BeBe Winans shared memories of sitting with Houston – in her closet – preparing for her first tour. "We weren't crowded," he joked of the space. "It was as big as this church."

Grammy Awards Pay Tribute to Whitney Houston, Etta James

Originally posted 02/13/2012 02:30PM

On a night intended to pay homage to the biggest names in music today, two of the Grammy Awards's biggest honorees were the megastars no longer in the room: Etta James and Whitney Houston.

After host LL Cool J opened Sunday's ceremony with a prayer for Houston, announcing "a death in our family," the audience rose in a standing ovation.

"When a truly great artist leaves us, their legacy lives on," Alicia Keys later told the stars gathered at Los Angeles's Staples Center, before joining Bonnie Raitt in a graceful cover of James's "A Sunday Kind of Love."

But the most moving tribute came from Jennifer Hudson, whose elegant but understated rendition of Houston's "I Will Always Love You" brought audience members to their feet once again.

Jay-Z All Smiles During 40/40 Club Re-Opening

Originally posted 01/19/2012 09:45AM

Celebrating the relaunch of his 40/40 club in New York City, new dad Jay-Z arrived around 11 p.m., taking ample time to greet friends and fans. Despite early rumors, Beyoncé, who gave birth to Blue Ivy Jan. 7, was a no-show. Also likely home with her child: Alicia Keys. Her husband Swizz Beats arrived solo to check out the overhauled space and was spotted chatting with Jay-Z in the security-blocked VIP section. B was there in spirit though. The deejay spun blocks of her music, as well as tunes by Michael and Janet Jackson and Britney Spears. CC Sabitha, Fabolous, Ashanti, Mob Wives star Renee Graziano and model Selita Ebanks were also all attendance. Jay-Z left close to 2 a.m. – but not before he had a fun moment with Warren Buffett.

The country songstress's career has been "go, go, go," she said, adding: "You never really get to stop and smell the roses and really enjoy just being a person."
