Alicia Keys has been popping up all over Paris Fashion Week. As Derek Blasberg tweeted, “Jeez, Alicia Keys has gone to as many shows as I have this season.” Keys made an appearance at Givenchy, where she caught up with W editor Edward Enninful. Photogs snapped the two in a handhold, which apparently means the two are having a steamy affair. At least, that’s what Media Takeout would like you to think, as they posted those photos under the headline “UMMMMM . . . This Could Be NOTHING . . . But . . Why Is R&B Singer ALICIA KEYS Holding Hands With THIS DUDE?????”
Oops! Never mind that it looks like the least passionate handhold of all time, or that there’s an iPhone grasped in the middle. And of course, the two seconds it would have taken the site to uncover that Enninful is, you know, a fashion editor and clearly not breaking up Keys’ marriage to Swizz Beats, would have been two seconds too long, right?
Luckily, Enninful has a good sense of humor, as he tweeted the link with the comment, “THIS DUDE????? haha xoxo.” Most commenters agreed that Media Takeout was making a whole lot of something out of nothing at all, though some did take the opportunity to throw some quick infidelity barbs in Ms. Keys’ direction.
We’d love to know what Enninful and Keys were doing–could there be a W spread in the works? And major props to both–they look good!
