Janet Jackson has a crush on Alicia Keys, femalefirst.co.uk reports.
The Together Again star, who has been dating record producer Jermaine Dupri since 2002, thinks Keys is “wonderful” and admires both her beauty and talent.
When asked who she would have a lesbian fling with, Jackson said, “I think I would pick Alicia Keys. I think she’s wonderful.”
Jackson believes people often question the sexual orientation of Alicia and talk-show host Oprah Winfrey because they are such “strong” characters.
“They are strong women,” she said. “Maybe they want to put something else behind it because of the strength. Like, you can’t be a woman and be strong, and there has to be something else to it.”
Although Jackson is happy to speculate about lesbian flings, she insists she would be devastated if Dupri revealed he was gay.
“I’d be upset because I want to be with him!” she told E! News. “It’s so funny because I joke with him, ‘It drives me crazy to be a girl sometimes, so in my next life I’m going to come back as a guy, and you’re going to be my b****!’”
