17. Alicia Keys
Keys marked her first decade of diva-dom in 2011 with a 10th anniversary edition of her debut album, “Songs in A Minor.” The woman who Bono recently said possessed “lioness energy” was also immortalized with her own statue at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum of New York. When not tending to her son Egypt with producer Swizz Beats, Keys has been busy working on her next album. A new song, "New Day," debuted in late June.—Jeff Royer
