I’m sure the parents of Virginia Tech massacre victims are thrilled to hear that unjailed sex criminal (and recording artist) R. Kelly has written a song about the tragedy.
While the intention is good, R. Kelly is not exactly the ideal person to do this. He was charged with 14-counts of child pornography, including having sex with a 14-year-old on tape (and reportedly urinating on her). And he has yet to face justice. The wheels of justice seem to turn especially slowly for him.
From my April 21, 2006 post:
The description of his latest antics and expected concert repertoire, as reported by The Detroit Spews, sure doesn’t sound like the usual humble behavior of a man facing the charges of his life:
* “MTV reports from a show in New York earlier this week that Kells performed a new song called ‘The Zoo,’ which includes the lines: ‘You and me, hopping like two kangaroos,’ and . . . ‘It’s like ‘Jurassic Park,’ but I’m your sexasaurus.’
* Kelly “asks the ladies to ‘get my computer love right off your screen’ during ‘Like a Real Freak,’ from his ‘TP2.com.’
* Kelly sings of “‘Sex Weed,’ described on his ‘TP.3’ album as the ‘sex so good that it gets me high.’
* In “Sex in the Kitchen,” Kelly “asks to get it on ‘over by the stove,’ later moving to the counter, ‘by the buttered rolls.’ Potatoes are involved, too.”
And remember all of this is with his preferred age group of 14-year-olds.
What R. Kelly lacks in shame, he more than makes up for in chutzpah.
