R. Kelly Doesn’t Let the Haters Get Him Down

That Village Voice interview with Jim DeRogatis where we re-learned about R. Kelly being a pedophile must have ruffled R. Kelly’s black panties because he’s responded to the piece. During a radio interview with Big Trigger on Atlanta’s V-103, R. Kelly tells the people who don’t agree with him to shut up.

“Well I feel like I got the football, man, I’m running towards the touchdown and stopping and looking back, mess around, I’ll get tackled,” he said. “And I also want my fans and everybody out there to know that I really appreciate everybody’s support from the very beginning of my career. But as you know, when you get on top of anything, it’s very windy up there.”

So he’s saying that the only reason this is coming up is because he’s on top and people are just trying to knock him down like they always do. Way to marginalize those sexual assault allegations. It’s not like people are saying he didn’t tip a waitress. They’re saying he molested who knows how many 14-15 year olds.

“It’s not just about getting on top, it’s about holding your balance once you get up there…You have to be spiritually a climber. So I feel good about ‘Black Panties’… As long as I got my fans screaming my name around the world and buying my records, and supporting R. Kelly, everybody who doesn’t agree with it should listen to the last song on ‘Black Panties’ [‘Shut Up’].”

Yea, bro. Don’t let those reports about how you used to go around high schools looking for fresh meat and how you figuratively and maybe literally waved a piece of candy in front of their faces to get them in your van get you down. Haters.
