I was listening to the radio the other day and I heard a new song by R. Kelly called Religious. I found this ironic considering that this is the same man who videotaped himself pissing on a 14 year old girl.
At this point I want to clarify what I mean when I say "ironic." What I really mean is "fucked up beyond all recognition." After hearing this song, I guarantee that even hardcore R. Kelly fans thought to themselves, "wow, this guy pissed on a minor. I'm not sure if he should be singing songs about piety."
I'm not even sure how he still has any fans left. Each time he releases a new song, the thought of him urinating on someone too young to have a driver's permit still pops into most listener's heads. Or at least it does into mine. Every time I hear the phrase, step in the name of love, the first image that I see is R. Kelly producing a steady stream of urine, not the clear kind, but the deep unholy yellow kind, splashing against the face of someone who is just learning to add fractions.
Disclaimer: For legal reasons I have to say that the whole pissing on a minor thing was only alleged and that R. Kelly was eventually cleared in court. But as an angry Indian auntie, I have to say that I think the court's decision was bullshit. Who exactly found this guy innocent? A jury? Twelve walking land beasts who were too goddamn stupid to think of an excuse to get out of jury duty? No. If you're still not convinced, here is the Dave Chappelle clip to further my argument.
