Drake, J. Cole, & The Weeknd FaceTime Fan Who Died From Cancer

Drake, J. Cole, and The Weeknd are opening their hearts.

The superstars FaceTimed with a young fan named Elijah shortly before he passed away from cancer. The heartwarming moment was captured on camera by Elijah’s cousin Michael Watson, who shared video of the 11-year-old speaking with his favorite artists.

“It’s a pleasure to meet you, man,” Cole tells Elijah, who is surrounded by his family at his home in Hampton, Virginia. After Cole tells him, “I love you, dude,” Elijah’s face lights up. “I appreciate that smile, sir, thank you,” adds the Dreamville rapper.

Over the past 3 years, my 11 y.o. cousin, Elijah, has battled cancer with the utmost resilience. Elijah's physical fight is now complete, as he transitioned to heaven on Friday. He didn't leave this world without knowing how much he was loved though. Last weekend, Elijah got to "meet" 3 of his favorite artists — The Weeknd, J. Cole, & Drake. Incredibly grateful for these 3 super-humans being so caring for my family during this time. We’ll hold onto these moments forever. A special thank you to the angels, Kathryn & Krystal for helping make this happen in such a short time. Please lift Kiara, Elijah's mom, and the rest of the fam up in your thoughts & prayers. In a time where there seems like so much is out of our control, one thing that we all have the power to give + show others is LOVE. 2 Corinthians 5:8

Elijah is even more surprised when The Weeknd calls in. “Whoa!” he says before the After Hours singer thanks him for being a fan. “I’m so honored to be one of your favorite artists, buddy. Thank you,” says The Weeknd.

In another touching moment, The Weeknd tells Elijah, “Love you, buddy,” while he responds, “Love you too.”

Drake can also be seen on a FaceTime call with Elijah in a photo shared by his mother, Kiara Swope.

After a three-year battle with cancer, Elijah sadly passed away on Friday, according to his cousin. “Over the past 3 years, my 11 y.o. cousin, Elijah, has battled cancer with the utmost resilience. Elijah’s physical fight is now complete, as he transitioned to heaven on Friday,” wrote Michael. “He didn’t leave this world without knowing how much he was loved though. Last weekend, Elijah got to ‘meet’ 3 of his favorite artists — The Weeknd, J. Cole, & Drake. Incredibly grateful for these 3 super-humans being so caring for my family during this time. We’ll hold onto these moments forever.”

Elijah’s mother also thanked Drake, Cole, and The Weeknd, along with NASCAR racer Joey Logano, for showing her son so much love. “I just want to say a huge Thank you to @realcoleworld @theweeknd @champagnepapi & @joeylogano for showing my baby some love these last difficult days of his life,” she said. “I truly appreciate you all.”

Alicia Keys Recalls Being ‘Manipulated’ and ‘Objectified’ by Photographer at 19 in Memoir

Alicia Keys is gearing up for the release of her memoir More Myself and she recalled the moment she felt “manipulated” and “objectified” at 19 years old.

The singer wrote that during a magazine photoshoot the photographer convinced her team to do the shoot alone. After that, he instructed her to “Open up your shirt a little” and “Pull the top of your jeans down a bit in the front.”

“My spirit is screaming that something is wrong, that this feels sleazy. But my protests, lodged in the back of my throat, can’t make their way out,” Keys writes. “I swallow my misgivings, tuck my thumb between the denim and my skin, and obey.”

The 39-year-old who was preparing for the release of her debut album, Songs in A Minor, says she went home and cried after the shoot. “This isn’t about me showing some skin, which I’ll do on my own terms, for my own purposes, in the coming years,” she writes. “It’s about feeling manipulated. It’s about being objectified.”

Alicia Keys says her manager at the time was appalled at the magazine shoot and was “embarrassed” and “ashamed” at the end results. “I now understand why the photographer wanted my team out of that room,” she writes. “A nineteen-year-old girl is more pliable than a set of her grown-ass managers.”

She added, “I swear that I’ll never again let someone rob me of my power,” Keys writes, adding, “It’s a promise I still work to keep.”
