Ok, I know I have been known to talk shyt about Detroit from time to time, but it's all in fun to get on my neighbor's nerves. That being said, I am nowhere near above calling out my own damn city and it's residents. And Kells has been pissing me off for a long time.
When that fool finally went to trial after years of getting it delayed, I wanted to move back to the Chi just so I could pull jury duty. And when they announced his acquittal on the radio, I damn near crashed my car. We all know R. Kelly is guilty. We saw the damn tape. We saw him answer when his name was called mid stroke. And the jury knew it, too. But because the damn girl was paid so well, they couldn't prove she was underage, and therefore could not convict him on child pornography charges. By the way, I heard he threw his acquittal celebration party at Chuck E. Cheese's on the South Side. I'm just sayin.
Anyway, on that day, I vowed to never buy another R. Kelly song, and change the channel every time one came on. The dj's of the world, however, made no such vow. So what, I can be my own damn army of 1.
Then Kells took his dumb ass on BET. Mistake #1. Most people would probably think Black Entertainment Television would be the perfect forum for his first interview since the trial. But we all know damn well what BET has become over the years. And for those of you who need a refresher, click here.
Then, when asked if he like teenage girls, instead of flat out saying no (which we all know is a lie), this golden shower lovin muthaf'er asks the interviewer to define teenager. Robert Kelly, what in the hell, man? Are you for real? Did the same person who wrote Sarah Palin's speech coach you here? That right there solidly reinforced my belief that he is a dirty pedophile.
And for the next couple of days, every radio station was blasting him because of that interview. But still, no one decided to stop playing him. And then we finally get DJ Flex standing up and refusing to endorse Kells anymore. This is the shyt I've been waiting for. R Kelly may be a musical genius, but he is a dirty, dirty man. I've got 14 year old cousins. 14 year olds shouldn't be having sex with each other, let alone some 40 year old man. And even though 19 is legal, I damn sure don't believe 19 is his starting age. Seriously, what does a 40 year old and a 19 year old talk about? I can barely talk to my sister that long, and I'm only 6 years older than her.
Anyway, R Kelly is nasty, and I hope parents will keep their kids away from him. I also hope radio stations will stop playing his shit. Like Flex said, the only reason he felt secure in doing this is because we keep supporting him and he got away with that bullshyt. SMDH
