Alicia Keys Breaks Up With iPhone for BlackBerry Gig

(Radio.com) Alicia Keys isn't just a girl on fire, she's a renaissance woman. The singer/mother/philanthropist is now adding Global Creative Director for BlackBerry to her résumé.

In her new position with the company, Alicia will work closely with "app developers, content creators, retailers, carriers and the entertainment community" to help figure out how everyone can better use the new BlackBerry 10 smartphone, which will be available in the U.S. this spring.

But as the New York Times asked, when was it that Ms. Keys decided to get rid of her iPhone?

The singer, who has sung the praises of her Apple phone, said during BlackBerry's press conference last week that she was happy to be back in an "exclusive relationship" with the brand.

But as the paper points out, she was tweeting from her iPhone as recently as three days prior and has been using Instagram, an app that is not available for BlackBerry. Read the explanation from her camp and her Tweet about the new gig.
