Alicia Keys Embraces Simple Joys of Motherhood in ‘Girl on Fire’ Video
In the clip, Keys channels a retro housewife, rocking winged eyeliner, pencil skirts and fitted tops, but all in modern colors. She aids someone appearing to be her mother, cleans up after some tykes (even using telekinesis at times) and helps prepare dinner. She gets no help from her man, but she doesn't mind that much. The video is extremely colorful, especially night time scenes that feature Keys alone in her room singing while looking out of her window at falling rain. Keys looks stunning, as usual, and makes what can otherwise be banal look beautiful -- proving that any girl can be a 'Girl on Fire.'
