Alicia Keys to Retire Fame and Fortune by Age 30

October 5, 2015

The 27-year-old singer revealed that she often finds herself frustrated by the pressures of fame.

She said that in 2006 she took a break from music and travelled to Egypt to restore her form. The Fallin' hitmaker insists that she hopes to be able to give up the entertainment industry in the next few years, so she can start living for herself.

“I am working hard now so I have the choice to retire when I want,” Contactmusic quoted her, as saying. “I would like to travel the world and stay in places instead of having to move on like I do now. I want to experience difference cultures,” she added.
