Alicia Keys had to run for cover at the New Federal Theatre’s 40th Reunion Gala Benefit at the Edison Ballroom Sunday night. An overzealous middle-aged male fan approached her during the intermission and tried to steal a kiss on the lips, but Keys bobbed and weaved out of the way, sources said. She made up for it by posing for photos with the fan. Keys was presented with an award by her mom, Terria Joseph, and an emotional Alicia noted it was the first time her mother had honored her at a gala. Also there: Danny Glover, Spike Lee, Terrie Williams and Ruby Dee.
Mrs. Beaks had to get on her “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” game! Sounds like ol’ boy was pretty persistent. Don’t think we would have still taken a picture with homie afterwards so more power to her.
