WOW! R. Kelly Talks Being in Love with Aaliyah,

Published

on

R. Kelly had a rather ‘rough’ interview with The Huffington Post earlier this year and walked out when he was confronted with questions he wasn’t prepared to answer.

The R&B star thankfully got a little more open and honest in a candid interview with Chris Heath for GQ magazine.

The interview starts with the following disclaimer:

This is a story about an entertainer named R. Kelly. It is a story about the remarkable, but also very strange, pop talent he has. It is a story about the difficult places he came from and the ways they may, or may not, have shaped who he has become. It is also the story of a man who has been publicly accused of multiple sexual offenses with underage women, and who stood trial for making child pornography. He was eventually acquitted of that charge, and his career has continued uninterrupted, but for the most part he has evaded even the most basic questions that might help people understand what is true about him.

R-KellyFor this story, R. Kelly agreed to speak about his whole life without restrictions. We met three times over three days in his hometown of Chicago. The second and third meetings were at his favorite cigar bar. The first meeting was on the ninety-ninth floor of the Sears Tower.

From there, R. Kelly opened about his love for Aaliyah, being found ‘not guilty,’ being sexually abused as a child and more.

Check out a few excerpts:

On Not Having His Father Around: “That’s the one thing. If I could change anything, I would definitely have had a father around. My father. I would definitely say it affected me deeply as a young man, coming up. Who doesn’t want a father? Those are the beginnings, and those are what can dictate the roads you choose in life, and choosing them well. And it affected me.”

On Being Sexually Abused as a Child: “At first, I couldn’t judge it. I remember it feeling weird. I remember feeling ashamed. I remember closing my eyes or keeping my hands over my eyes. I remember those things, but couldn’t judge it one way or the other fully.”

On His Relationship with Aaliyah and reports they got married: “Uh, I would describe it as best friends. Deep friends. As far as we both loved music and wanted to be successful. She’s a Capricorn, I’m a Capricorn, my momma a Capricorn, her daddy’s a Capricorn, you know.

It was just so much in common with each other. Yes. I would say I loved ‘liyah. Well, because of Aaliyah’s passing, as I’ve always said, out of respect for her mother who’s sick and her father who’s passed, I will never have that conversation with anyone. Out of respect for Aaliyah, and her mother and father who has asked me not to personally. But I can tell you I loved her, I can tell you she loved me, we was very close. We were, you know, best best best best friends.”

On is Acquittal: “Well, to be honest with you, man…however, whatever, whenever. When a person is found not guilty, they’re found not guilty. And it doesn’t matter if it’s a murder case, it doesn’t matter what case it is, when they’re found not guilty, they’re not guilty. And I think that a lot of haters out there wanted to see me go down.”

On That Video of Him (Allegedly) Pissing on an Underage Girl: “Because of my lawyers, to this day I cannot have those kind of conversations. Being advised by my lawyers in this.

Because they could come back to haunt me. Things could come back and they can just restart all over again. And I have to protect myself.”

On His Negative Image: “It made me feel terrible. But now I, honestly, don’t think about it or could care one way or the other what people think about me. I have fans and I have family that love me, and I have my music, and I have my breath going in and out. I’m more than okay with who I am and who I have become today as a man, and I’m just moving on with my life, man, doing this music. I’m good.”

On Bill Cosby: “Well, my opinion on that is, I don’t know what happened. I’m a fan of Bill Cosby’s from ‘The Bill Cosby Show,’ of course—who’s not?—and for me to give my opinion on something that I have no idea if it’s true or not, all I can say is that it was a long time ago.

And when I look on TV and I see the 70-, 80-, 90-year-old ladies talking about what happened when they were 17, 18, or 19, there’s something strange about it. That’s my opinion. It’s just strange.”

Denrele Visits Graveyard Site Of Late Singer Goldie, pays tribute

Published

on

Nigerian media personality, Denrele Edun has composed an emotional tribute to late musician Goldie

who died on February 14, 2013.

Goldie was one of the most enthralling recording artists in the Nigerian entertainment industry until her sudden demise at the age of 31.

Denrele share photos from his visit to her gravesite via his Instagram page,

He wrote;

9 YEARS AND STILL COUNTING!

You’re not here GOLDIE HARVEY, but your presence lingers in the shadows.
You don’t see what I see, but I hear you laughing with me when I laugh.
You don’t know what I feel, but I feel you, feeling for me.Came to visit you, as usual, dear Friend and again, I felt your presence…

In that swift sweep of wind that always picks up around your Resting Place.

Did you like my outfit today?
I re-enacted that all-black outfit You rocked when we were hosted at

*that Club* in Abuja, the same one where the DJ refused to play your songs.

Imagine his cheek of him!
I remember how you stormed out in anger, but only ME could drag you back in and

“shéy Werey” for the DJ to play Track 1 to 5!”

“Remember your Blonde Hairstyle in Joburg? I re-rocked it today for you in black!

And as you always said to me;
“People like us have so much LOVE to give but will hardly get it back!”…

Well, guess what? I was served “HOT BREAKFAST” at about 4a.m this morning….
In their words, “I’m not ready to love you the way you love me. I’m not in that headspace now”.
Imagine! ?????
But you know me! Tough Cookie….I’ll survive!
(I still haven’t found that Foreigner you told me to get hooked on…. I’m STILL not attracted to “whitey”! )

“Well, I came to sit at your Resting place and give you all the girlfriend
REST IN POWER GURLFRIEND!

I have learned that Grief is another name for Love.

We grieve because we had the opportunity of connecting deeply with another human.

This is essentially the most bittersweet of human experiences.

But now, we must continue to speak to Goldie, if only in our thoughts,so that she will know that we remember her and all the happiness and beauty that she brought into our lives and that she is not alone.

“Lives are like rivers: Eventually they go where they must.

Not where we want them to.”

RIP OLUWABIMPE SUSAN GOLDIE HARVEY. (1981 – 2013).
