R+B superstar Alicia Keys almost became ALICIA WILD when she was searching for a fitting stage name.

The FALLIN' singer, who was christened ALICIA COOK, decided she wanted a professional name that summed up her piano-playing skills early in her career, and now she's glad she chose Keys.

She explains, "We were searching for a good description - something that had a description of who I am and what I do and we came up with a whole bunch of really bad names.

"The worst was... ALICIA WILD. That sounds like a stripper."
