"I think Egypt kissed Blue...and I don't think Jay liked it very much," the "Girl on Fire" singer joked of Beyonce's hip hop mogul husband. "He called my husband, and he was like, 'Umm...watch your son.'"

Perhaps Egypt can win over the rapper with his knowledge of basketball? (Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, is part-owner of the new Brooklyn Nets.)

"He's so adorable. I can't even tell you how huge of a basketball fan he is. You can't believe it," Keys told Williams of her little boy. "Like, he knows the whole starting lineup, he can say their numbers, he can say their names, and at night, he has a special song for Melo [Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks] that he sings...It's very cute."
