Alicia Keys has discovered she doesn't need security men to follow her everywhere - because she gets zero attention from fans when she's out alone.

The sexy singer is always fighting with management officials, who insist she can't go out by herself - because she's convinced no one notices her when she's out alone.

She explains, "People say that I'm crazy because I go places by myself and I walk around by myself... I just don't feel comfortable with somebody shadowing me all the time.

"Usually, it's not a problem because people don't expect me to be out like that.

"I've had plenty of times when I've heard people say, 'Look at that girl trying to look like Alicia Keys.' It makes me laugh."
