Last weekend, Alicia Keys announced that she was parting ways with her longtime manager Jeff Robinson, who immediately grumbled that the firing was orchestrated by Alicia’s man, Swizz Beats. Swizz sent over this exclusive response to missinfo.tv saying:

“I’m too busy to fire anybody. I’m wrapping up my album, plus both Lenny Kravitz and Coldplay projects. Also, people need to just accept change.”

But now the buzz is all about Swizz and Alicia’s upcoming “wedding ceremony.” Life & Style reported the ceremony would be this summer in Europe. MediaTakeout claimed that the party would be this weekend in the Islands. Today, OK Magazine has an interview with Swizz where he laughs off those rumors but talks about his wedding ideas, how Alicia will adjust to motherhood, and more….

Swizz on his wedding plans:

“Well its not this weekend! But you know, we’re excited. Our union is amazing. Our union is pure. Our union is positive no matter what people say or what people think, time will tell everything and you know, silence is the best thing. We just keep it private and we do our thing and just have fun with it.”

“[The wedding ceremony will be] just an amazing day. Very intimate. It’s not a superstar wedding. It’s not a gimmicky wedding. It’s a true bond of love, you know, that’s not based on having the most famous person sitting there while you’re doing it. It’s about having the closest people who really understand you as a person and that really have love for you. So it’s a small situation.”

Swizz Beats on him and Alicia’s baby-on-the-way:

“I’m very excited about that! Children, you know, they’re a blessing and I’m very excited. [My older kids are] excited as well. We keep the energy positive. Everything surrounding kids should always be positive. That’s the number one rule….I think [Alicia’s] going to be an amazing mom because she’s an amazing person. If youre an amazing person, it all equals the same thing.”
