Alicia Keys reacts to fan grabbing and kissing her face during concert

Alicia Keys reacts to fan grabbing and kissing her face during concert

American singer-songwriter Alicia Keys has reacted to a fan grabbing and kissing her face during a concert.

Singer Alicia Keys has spoken out for the first time since the shocking moment during one of her most recent concerts when she was kissed by a fan while performing a song.

The American singer-songwriter was gigging at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada, when the surprising incident happened.

The 41-year-old was preforming her hit song 'Empire State of Mind' where she was walking through a crowd of fans.

In the viral clip, Keys is seen to be grabbed by the head by the mad fan and is kissed on the cheek, promoting a look of shock from the American singer. Watch below:

Keys shared her reaction to the astonishing moment in the comments to a post from Hollywood Unlocked sharing the clip.

The singer-songwriter said: "Trust me, I was like, 'what the F***!!!!!!!! Don’t she know what time it is??"

Fans of the singer have also been giving their reaction to the fan incident and have defended Keys for the way she reacted at the time.

One comment read: "Oh hell naw.. too much going around for that level of closeness."

While another said they would have reacted differently to Keys: "Nahhhhh I would’ve snapped, people are too damn comfortable."


Fans have also questioned in the comments Keys' security guards' lack of immediate reaction in the kissing incident.

In the clip, there seems to be no urgency from the guards to remove the singer from the situation and it was lucky the fan did not plan on doing something more harmful.

One comment on Instagram wrote: "Why would you allow someone to do that."

A second comment referred to fellow singer Beyonce's security guard would not have allowed the incident to happen, it read: "Julius security would NEVER let that happen."

This isn't the first time the famed signer has had to address an incident during one of her concerts.

During an interview with the website Complex, Keys was asked about an incident when Lil Mama joined in and struck a pose at the end of the song with Jay-Z at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

After being pressed on the now iconic incident, Keys says she does not remember what happened as she was focused on doing her best performance.

She said: "I think I was so focused on performing. Because when you perform, it’s a lot. You gotta hit it. You gotta nail it. You gotta kill it. It has to be perfect."
