The beautiful and talented Alicia Keys has been fired from Blackberry.  After just one year on the job, the singer was let go by the smartphone company. 

Alicia Keys served as the Global Creative Director for Blackberry which was announced in January 2013. She was seen at several launch events introducing new products but that seems to be the extent of her work with Blackberry.

What made things worse is that fans of Keys were able to see that she posted tweets using a iPhone.  We're unsure if the 'Girl on Fire' singer was expected to endorse the products but I would imagine using a iPhone didn't settle well with the Interim CEO of Blackberry.

Keys along with 40 percent of Blackberry employees were fired after a decrease in revenue.
