Alicia Keys may not actually be a ‘girl on fire’, but her pants sure are (see what I did there?). Despite serving as a creative director for Blackberry, it turns out… she actually uses an iPhone! The jig is up, because she accidentally tweeted on Monday from the Twitter for iPhone app, probably not realising that anyone else would notice. It wasn’t even a good tweet, either, just a lyric from the new Drake song, which was super disappointing.
That’s neither here nor there, however. Despite having told The New York Times last week that she only uses the Blackberry Z10, she clearly has enough sense in her everyday life to realise that Blackberrys are useless unless you’re a suit & tie businessman (or woman) who needs the Enterprise feature. Other than that, iPhones or Androids are the way to go.
Of course, Alicia went the route that all stars do whenever they’ve been caught out doing something stupid: they lie and claim they were “hacked”. Yeah, hacked by the slow part of your own brain that wasn’t on top of what you’re doing on the internet.
What the h*ll?!!!!Looks like I’ve been hacked… I like @drake but that wasn’t my tweet:-(

Girl, nobody believes that shit, okay? And also, pretty much no one with any common sense is going to blame you for using… well, anything but a Blackberry. I’d rather have one of those old Motorolas that were like walkie talkies that everyone had and would use on the bus so that everyone could hear your entire conversation than go back to a Blackberry.
