It’s no secret that Alicia Keys‘ relationship/marriage to Swizz Beatz has been scrutinized by many; so the songstress decided to address the haters!

“[They] were apart for some time before we ever got together…that doesn’t matter to those who take pleasure in trying to knock others down…there’s no need to fight what’s not true…I’d never met a person where I could be fully myself…Swizz and I live in each other’s shadow.  So we can occupy the same space and there is nothing but equality.  There’s something really powerful about that.”

The diva shares the above and more with JET magazine, (which hit newsstands today, November 19) pick up your copy of the new issue.
