Alicia Keys thinks SHE’s the Girl on Fire

Who is YOUR Girl on Fire: Katniss Everdeen or Alicia Keys? As far as we knew, it was Katniss, but now Keys seems poised to try and take the mantle. See this story from EW.com about Keys’ new album and how it relates to The Hunger Games:

For our Fall Music Preview, on stands tomorrow, we spoke to Alicia Keys about her upcoming album, Girl on Fire, due Nov. 27  — and she had plenty to say about the recording process, getting the tiniest member of her family in the studio, and why that title is not a reference to a certain bow-and-arrow-wielding girl warrior.

EW: Let’s start with your album title, Girl on Fire. I know that you wrote that you wanted to make a change in your life and represent a new journey and a fresh start, but is the title also influenced by The Hunger Games?

Alicia Keys: You know, the funny thing is that it’s actually not. It was such a shock when I heard about The Hunger Games — I wasn’t aware of the book at that point. And I didn’t realize that, I guess, that’s what they call the one girl. So we tried very hard to make it all work and put the song in — and to put parts of what I was developing in with the movie.

If it was an innocent coincidence — and we’re inclined to believe Keys when she says that — then no harm, no foul. It does make us wonder, though: Would an Alicia Keys song have been nice on the “Songs from District 12 and Beyond” soundtrack? We know Keys can do New York, but could she have done District 12?

Girl on Fire, Boy on Fire

Yes, we all know Katniss Everdeen is the Girl on Fire. Even Cato knows it (remember how he shouts that while she’s in the tree?). Well, it looks like Gale wants to get in on the fun:

This scorching piece comes from stalkerae.deviantart.com, whose Hunger Games work we STRONGLY encourage you to check out. She seems to have a penchant for all things fire, and she’s blazingly good!
