Alicia Keys: Husband Swizz Beatz Has 'Taught Me A Lot About Freedom' (VIDEO)

When you know, you know. That's what Alicia Keys had heard about love. "I never knew what that meant," the multi Grammy Award-winning artist says in this clip. "It sounded to me like some weird kind of slogan." Yet when Keys met her now-husband, producer Swizz Beatz, she experienced a dramatic shift that gave her a new perspective.

In this clip from "Oprah's Master Class" on OWN, Keys opens up about who the real Swizz Beatz is -- "He's just bubbling over with life" -- and how his spontaneity and openness has changed her approach not just to love, but to everything. "He's definitely taught me a lot about freedom," she says. "...Before, I was always so regimented about how everything had to happen... But there's also another part of life that's very, very spontaneous. It's very natural and kind of unfolds, and it happens to you."
