R&B superstar Alicia Keys keeps her multiple Grammy Awards stored away in a closet because she refuses to show them off on her mantelpiece.

The No One hitmaker has won 14 of the prestigious honours to date, including five for her debut album Songs in A Minor in 2002, but unlike many other artists, who proudly put the accolades on display at home, hers remain all boxed up.

She tells Details magazine, "I just haven't found the right place for them, I guess. Like, they can't be in the bathroom - that is just wrong. They can't be in the main living area, 'cause that's way too self-serving...

"I mean, I'm proud of them, don't get me wrong, I just feel weird about hanging them. Maybe I can hang them on top of somewhere that you can't quite see but gets dusted once in a while."
