Alicia Keyshas opened up about her relationship with hubbySwizz Beatzin a new interview with Marie Claire UK.
The Girl On Fire singer, who graces the front cover of the publication, revealed she believes they have "taught each other a lot", stating: "He’s taught me to live more fully and I think I’ve taught him to live more deeply.”
She went on to claim that being married to Swizz has made her more chilled than ever, explaining; "That’s When I Knew is definitely an ode to my husband… Honestly I didn’t really like him that much. I thought he was too ostentatious."
Speaking of her first impressions of the producer, Keys told the mag: "Swizz will have the fastest car, the biggest jewellery, the loudest jacket; everything with him is really over the top. I used to see him and think, 'He is so annoying'.”
As well as discussing her private life, the Fallin' hitmaker spoke about how she has evolved as an artist, saying: "You have to speak up. To say, ‘I don’t like that, it’s not cool, don’t do that to me’, but it’s not easy, especially with people you love.
"I think getting older has made me evolve in a lot of ways and made me more relaxed about saying how I feel, no matter what.”
