Singer Alicia Keys took the stage yesterday before a rally of W.G.A. strikers, and they cheered her arrival enthusiastically. The master musician, 27, took the microphone and told the excited picketers, who were preparing to march, that she supported them, shouting, “Let’s walk!”
Instead of walking with the picketing guild members, however, she darted towards her waiting S.U.V., surrounded by a bubble of beefy bouncers. “I need everybody to back up!” her security team demanded, while Ms. Keys smiled, waved and appeared to repeat the word “yes.”
