Yesss! This is wonderful!
Alicia Keys just put together the new public information campaign, EMPOWERED to teach women about HIV/AIDS, and she couldn't have done anything better.
The movement is set to be released on the National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, which is March 10 and will use public service ads to get in contact with communities.
With about 280,000 people in the US living with HIV, the singer wanted to reach out to women because the female race is the majority of individuals living with the virus.

In an interview with New York Magazine, Taylor Swift opened up about why she wrote a song to Kanye West.
Here's what she had to say:
'I think a lot of people expected me to write a song about [West]. But, for me, it was important to write a song to him. It doesn't really add anything good if I start victimizing myself and complaining about things. Because I'm proud of that performance at the VMAs last year,
..where my fans helped me get through it. And there was a lot that went down backstage that I will always be thankful for, and the fans in the subway know exactly what happened that night. I feel everything. I've never had this thick skin that can't be… It's not like I am bulletproof in any sense of the word.'
We're glad to hear you feel empowered, Taylor. Sounds like you made the right move, bb!
