Alicia Keys Out as BlackBerry’s ‘Creative Director,’ Sean “Diddy” Combs Acquires DeLeón Tequila Brand, The Dream to Leave Def Jam

One year is needless to say, not enough time to see the true results of her role as ‘Creative Director.’ Her exit just underscores the importance of being fully aware of the contract deals you enter into as brand ambassadors whether on the music or film business, and actually not being afraid to let go if it is not a fit.
