I see R. Kelly is laying down groundwork for an insanity defense. Remember just a few days ago when R. Kelly–who is in the process of dealing with the major fallout of a documentary exposé and being hit with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse–decided it was a good time for an interview? Well, Kells has an explanation for why he did that, and it’s a good one. His “spirit” told him to.
TMZ is reporting that R. Kelly is barreling towards full-tilt disaster-mode and he’s about to reach his goal. Sources close to him (who should really find new people to be friends with or employed by) tell TMZ that R. Kelly chose to sit down for that clusterfuck of an interview with Gayle King because he is “in constant touch with his spirit” and “tends to listen to it more than the people around him.” Why have trusted confidantes and advisors when you can just listen to that singular voice in your own head telling you to completely lose your shit on national television?
The sources say that R. Kelly “felt he owed it to himself and his fans to break his silence.” Maybe you owed it to yourself, but speaking as someone who had to delete the remix to Ignition off his iPhone because of Surviving R. Kelly let me tell you, I was not moved by watching you yell and cry at Gayle King. Well I was moved but not how I think he wanted me to be…
After R. Kelly made a complete and total ass of himself on television, people online thought he was maybe putting on a performance in some half-witted attempt to get sympathy. Welp that did not work out for him as most thought it looked more like a mental breakdown and people have memed the hell out of him:

But sources are telling TMZ that this was all according to plan! R. Kelly apparently “gives zero fucks” about how the public is reacting and is happy with his choices.
Well R. Kelly… at least someone paid your child support for you so you can be free until the next payment is due. In the meantime, you can watch this Saturday Night Live spoof of your interview and think about how this actually went way better than the real one did:
