Suffer in your jocks!

Oh, by the way, she isn’t boycotting Israeli hummus either.

The 14-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys arrives in Israel this week for her sold-out Thursday night performance at the Nokia Arena in Tel Aviv, following Tuesday night’s performance in Istanbul, part of her global “Set the World on Fire” tour.

According to producer Shuki Weiss, Ms. Keys, as her staffers refer to the singer and pianist, is a strict vegetarian who eats fish, and asks that her staff follow the same diet. Although, as reported by entertainment host Guy Pines, Keys is no Barbra Streisand, who reportedly required M&Ms in her dressing room, sorted according to color. But longtime producer Weiss did have to import several food items, including whole-wheat, cinnamon raisin bread and Smart Water bottles, stored only at room temperature

As for local eats, Keys is happy to dine on local fish, as well as to scoop some hummus accompanied by Diet “Black Beer” — a non-alcoholic, malt-flavored Israeli drink — among several other Diet sodas and drinks. She also needs a few cans of tuna in her dressing room, but one imagines she’ll be bringing her own albacore white, rather than the darker canned tuna sold in local grocery stores.

And a reminder to those of you attending tomorrow evening’s concert in Tel Aviv: wear purple to show your support for Alicia while taking a stab at Alice Walker.
