R Kelly has lived an incredible life. Wow.
From his 33-chapter hip hop opera "Trapped in the Closet" to his recent interview with GQ, R. Kelly is never far out of touch from the weird. Now, thanks to the good people of GQ, we now have footage of Kellz singing his entire life story.
What a tale. R Kelly begins by telling the story of how he dropped out of high school to become a street performer before going off on a number of bizarre tangents, such as when he compares his junk to Bruce Lee.
Some choice quotes:
“In a son/mother way, I had a serious crush on my mom. I even asked her to marry me one day. She said no, but you know what? I understood.”
"I blinked my eyes and next thing I know, I was in the midst of success, in the midst of drama, in the midst of rumors, in the midst of love and in the midst of haters."
“I love music. I’m pregnant by it. I’m having apelets. And I’m gonna love my babies. I’m gonna raise em. I’ll burp em. They’re gonna poop. All those things. Our melodies."
