For A REMIX!!!!!
I keed, I keed.
Seriously folks, having originated from Chicago, I can tell you from experience that folk LOVE R. Kelly.
No, I mean, they REALLY love him. Love him enough to keep making his songs number one after the initial sex with a minor thing. Love him enough to support him through the child pornography thing. Folk really love R. Kelly.
I said all that to say. We should take a stand for our children even when the accused is one of our beloved. (Well not mine, I was over R Kelly when he compared women to Jeeps, but Whatev.)
Several years ago, I went to an Isley Brothers concert. Near the end a tall man came out. Ron Isley introduced him as R. Kelly. The crowd went wild.
I noticed a sound in my ears. It was my own voice screaming too. What had I become? This R Kelly mania is indeed contagious. I must, will resist, for the sake of our daughters.
