If you setup your wireless with /etc/network/interfaces network manager
will not care about that interface any longer. It is either network
manager or /etc/network/interfaces.
If your post shows the complete interfaces file I don't see the line
and without that line it doesn't work for me.
Finally if that wpa key is not made up, you should better change your
passphrase because now the world can connect to your wireless router.
