Alicia Keys Opens Up About Losing Baby Weight

While most celebrities make it seem like getting back into shape after having a baby is no big deal, Alicia Keys is not sugar coating it.

The 31-year-old R&B songstress confessed to Entertainment Tonight that she had to “bust her ass” to get back into shape after pregnancy. It was a lot of very difficult, hard, painful work. Some people are just like, ‘I just eat steak and potatoes and bread and I’m fine,’ and I’m not that person.”

She is currently promoting her fifth studio album, “Girl on Fire,” which is set to be released next month.
