    It would have been great if Jay-Z and Alicia Keys sang empire state of mind in one of the NYC arenas before the All Star. I am not big on hip hop but I listened to this track about 5 times today on spotify…

    Keys is also now’s Blackberry’s Chief Creativity Officer (or some other wording). Did Blackberry pay the NBA behind the scenes to secure her performance slot?

    Alicia Keys takes up a job in RIM just when the new Blackberries move to a touchscreen interface … kind of ironic
