In an entertainingly provocative post, the website The Root recently wondered why the mainstream media largely ignored Keys' three-year affair with a married man while taking Fantasia Barrino of "American Idol" fame to task for doing the same thing. "Clearly, Keys has a better publicist than Barrino," Nsenga Burton wrote. "Maybe it's because the mainstream media would have to admit that this 'perfect' woman, whoses image they helped construct, is, in fact, far from perfect. How can you make a song like 'Superwoman' and sleep with and get pregnant by another woman's husband?"
Keys married Beatz in July 2010, while she was pregnant with Egypt, their baby boy. Given his history of infidelity, we're dying to know the singer's reaction to his sext-y Anthony Weiner behavior. Will she turn blind eye or just ignore it?
