R Kelly Huff Post interview.
Wow this was a very hot and cringing interview,it was very uncomfortable viewing but at the same time box office.R kelly must have wished he never stepped into the Huff Post studios.The lady interviewer surely gave him a hard time and it was a real cat and mouse game between the two.
Controversial R&B singer R. Kelly has been out supporting his new album "The Buffet" , even uploading an impassioned video to YouTube begging for his fans to support the
However, Kelly’s PR campaign took a sharp left turn when the 48-year-old made an appearance on Huff Post Live yesterday for a Q&A during which the show’s host took questions from Twitter.
Very quickly delving into matters of low album sales and lack of public support for the singer, the show’s host pushed Kelly to answer questions about why he thought The Buffet might not have sold well (which he chalked up to digital piracy) before jumping into naysayers who claim allegations about his past (including those about sexual relations with minors) make it impossible to support the art.
“Would I let R. Kelly babysit my daughter? F**k no,” read one tweet.
R. Kelly said:
"I didn’t come here for negative. I came here for positive. I don’t give people that’s negative towards me the time of day … When you start getting negativity coming at you, you pretty much don’t wanna hear that crap. Especially if it was, what, I don’t know how many years ago.
So what I’m gonna tell you is that I am going to sit here and talk gonna talk to you like the beautiful lady you are and I’m gonna talk to you with respect but I’m gonna let you know that any other negative things come at me out of your mouth, as far as negativity, I’m gonna get up and walk out and I’m gonna go to McDonald’s. Hopefully, the McRib is out and I’m going to go home to Chicago, play me some basketball, go to the studio and work on my next album,” he said."
The interview continued with Kelly growing visibly uncomfortable — “I say f**k that,” he responded to both that tweet and fans who say it’s hard to divorce the man from the art — before eventually walking out. “I’m not perfect,” he added, “but I’m perfectly me.”
