The comedic TV appearances from Alicia Keys just keep on coming! She should’ve known she was in for it as she walked on the stage of BBC’s Friday Night With Jonathan Ross and the house band coyly struck up Urban Cookie Collective’s “The Key, The Secret.” What followed was an interview between host Ross and singer Keys that offered up some unintentionally hilarious gems, thanks in part to a few “lost in translation” moments.
At one point Ross asked Alicia how she unwinds her nerves before a show. “I do have my little rituals,” she said. “I warm up on my piano and I warm up my voice, too—I drink a lot of tea.”
“Do you not need to wee a lot, then, when you’re out there?” Ross inquired, causing Keys’ eyes to bulge out of her head: “To what?”
Finally she caught on. “Oh, wee. I thought that was a video game!”
Catch Alicia Keys admit which country she doesn’t like performing in, and get the, uh, piss taken out of her as the Brits would say, below.
