R. Kelly Responds To Sexual Assault Accusations In Village Voice Article


(AllHipHop News) R. Kelly probably felt he would be spending this time focusing on publicizing his latest album Black Panties, but thanks to a scathing article published in The Village Voice, the R&B star’s past has become the central story in the media. In the article, former Chicago Sun-Times journalist Jim DeRogatis recounted tales and reports he says proves Kelly had engaged in numerous sex acts with underaged girls.

R. Kelly was asked about The Village Voice piece during an interview with Atlanta’s V-103 radio station. Speaking with host Big Tigger, Kells makes an analogy between his life at the moment and the game of football, thanks his fans, and offers a message to his detractors.

Well, I feel like I got the football, man. I’m running towards the touchdown. Stopping and looking back, mess around and get tackled. 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. 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 that doesn’t agree with it should listen to the last song on Black Panties.

The final track on Kelly’s Black Panties is “Shut Up.” The song opens with the lines, “This songs goes out to all the people out there that be running they mouth/ And they don’t know what the hell they saying/Shut up.”

    • Papi Peligro

      Like come on dawg. Black panties. When you play it it sound even more ridiculous.

    • Papi Peligro

      I can’t even say that without whispering it like a soap commercial. BLACK PANTIES.

  • Reblogged this on Jessie Spencer's Blogspot.

  • Jonathan Bacher

      Doing Dookies on it.

  • Charter

    How did this joker get off….

    • YaheardSyndicate

      He gets off on young girls

  • DJ7

    This baby toucher is still doing it and the sad / sick part is, everybody knows it b.u.t. will still support this weirdo…For radio to accept him back like it’s all good is equally disturbing…In this case, time doesn’t heal all wounds

    • Ace

      Yo word of advice , u always busy on here hating on Rkelly rmbr let who has sineth not cast the 1st stone sayin? I don’t support wat he did if he at all had sex with 13 yr old gals but in other countries gals of 13 can get married includin Spain and a lot of Middle East countries

      • DJ7

        Don’t need nor want your advice champ…This ain’t other countries neither…as far as hating…you damn right I’m hating on a child predator wtf is wrong is cats like you who are indifferent to it…I can cast that stone champ b/c I’m not a baby toucher…..ponder on that one random ass poster!!!

      • Ace

        That offer was more of a statement I jus called it offer to sound polite. In my experience those that make the loudest noise are the ones with something to hide. U got suttin to hide bruh? For someone to be on an internet site always fascinated about one thing is abit suspect, n u always tlk abt the same thing…it makes us wonder

      • DJ7

        Are you apart of damage control B? R. “baby touching” Kelly himself perhaps? You have a problem with me speaking my mind on a child rapist and the fact that I’m calling the weirdo out, huh? I’m not the only poster in this very comment section that’s been apart of EVERY single article on this weirdo AHH chooses to post yet you chose to single me out…hmmm…interesting…Seems to me that the only people with anything to hide sympathizes, justifies and/or identifies with the perputrator…I don’t fit that description star….Conversly, you yourself attempted and failed miserably to justify child molestation in your initial attack by bringing up irrelevant information so honestly, who’s doing the hiding of anything sir? Now, let me give you a bit of advice…think long and hard about what you initially say to intelligent individuals b/c in the end your rebuttals shall reveal subtle incriminating details you’d of wish you kept to yourself…. as it did here….good day sir!

      • Immortal

        Bruh your point was good. If YOU believe what you believe is the truth supported by facts and unclouded by emotions, then run with it. Kells is wrong for what he did, and will forever have to live with it, but mainstream radio has forgiven and glamorized artists who have taken lives. When it comes to the green, it’s amazing how someone can easily forget anothers past.

      • DJ7

        Sad b.u.t. true fam

      • Ace

        Now u jus repeatn my ” u got suttin to hide line” b original and yes u can criticise someone but rmbr innocent till proven guilty. So u smarter than the jury, the judge and everyone else that listened to the prosecutors Infor more than you knw and they stil said he was not guilty? It’s pple lyk who used to burn pple on fires accusing them of witchcraft jus because u ” heard” rumours that that old man/woman lives by the hills by themselves so they prob witches. I jus hate pple that think they know more by readin shit on internet.I ain defending r.kelly am defending logic and am also tired of seein u post on every thread tlkin abt the same thing yo I hate reputation. If you so convinced take him to court… Oh i forgot u can’t …

      • DJ7

        Guilty Mudda fuggas WALK everyday as do the innocent get found guilty so miss me with that bullchit anaolgy….your logic is flawed, straight up B! The more you respond, the younger / dumber you sound…real troll like and I refuse to entertain internet trolling so consider this conversation over!!!

      • seveneightyseven

        That don’t make the shit right at all, that’s some pro-pedo shit you just fuckin said man smfh. How is hatin for lettin us not forget what Kelly did? Reminding us he a pedo is hating now? You let your baby daughter go around R. Kelly then we won’t remind oyu about shit because that’s hating

  • Papi Peligro

    To me when RKELLY was making good music. Like his last 2 albums where was the controversy. Soon as he go back with this junk music we rehashing. I don’t support his pedophilia or Black panties. But when he dropping 2 step music and good music he good. Happy People, Love Letter, Write me Back. Was it. He should have never looked back.

    • DJ7

      It wasn’t specifically targeted towards the young market like this trash is either fam…marketing at it’s finest (worst)…His last projects kept him off “kiddie” radio (insert Trey Songz) yet adult contemporary kept his classics afloat… think about it, the market that remembers who / what he did / doing has either moved on to “grown folk” music (I know not all b.u.t. that’s the general thinking of marketers) or continue to listen to the classics meanwhile, pop / kiddie radio re opens the doors back up for baby toucher…This new gen will accept weirdo b/c they know not and older cats will be labeled bitter, haters amongst other adjectives that the new gen labels cats older / wiser then themselves…it’s pretty slick how it goes down…sick nonetheless

  • The Arsonist

    I have a daughter, and to see this dude piss on what was a 13 or 14 yr old girl killed it for me, Im cool on Robert Kelly. If that was my daughter his name would have been R.I.P Kelly

    • Mike G

      Would your daughter lay there and let someone piss on her? If so then something wrong

      • The Arsonist

        BEFORe you even get to that do you realize how many 14 yr olds could be easily preyed upon by this dude? You’re missing the point and if you saw the video its not like the dude said Yo, Im about to Piss on you, plus he handed her to crumpled up bills that couldn’t be no more than $200 he brainwashed these kids to think that he was in their corner, at the end of the day an ADULT should always know better don’t even mention the girls actions at all this nigga is a 38 year old man he should have his balls cut off he used his fame to be a predator. My Daughter will never even be near the nigga in the first place but all lil girls don’t have the same support system my daughter has and it still doesn’t justify some dummy taking advantage of them. Its like saying well since she didn’t have a strong support system then its cool to piss on a child.

      • Mike G

        she laid there for a good minute of two taking it. She wasn’t mad about it. people don’t raise there kids right and some girls will do anything for a chance to be with someone famous . The same thing can happen to an unstable 25 year old girl. If a girl is raised wrong and is a hoe she is gonna be that way at 14 or 25

      • The Arsonist

        So you sound like you’re cool with a pedophile, as AN ADULT you have to have the maturity to say whether the chick is a Hoe or Not that I’m not going to do it because its wrong. SO you sound like if a 14 yr old came your way and she’s willing you’ll be pissing on kids too, a human doesn’t reach the age of maturity mentally until 25yrs old so saying what a child does at 14 is what they would become at 25 is ridiculous I don’t know how old you are but at 15 I was doing things I would think about doing as an adult.

      • Mike G

        everyone did dumb things when they were 15. But would I have let a famous woman pee on me because shes famous NO. Would any normal 15 year old I know allow someone to pee on them no they wouldnt.

      • Terrance Goodman

        He used to pull up at local schools and take girls home

    • John Dough

      I’ with you I can’t rock with Kelly anymore and haven’t since that happened and i was a huge fan. He’s sick and anyone listening is condoning it.

  • that nigga dodge that question like bush dodge that dirty ass sandy iraqi shoe

    He know his ass has a shady past that’s why he dodged the question however u still can’t take away the fact that he’s a great artist.

  • Damn i used to like Kells, but he done had way too many underage incidents man, All Bs aside yall know if a chick acting young in the mind you go the other way. I aint listened to bruh since. I won’t either. Pedophile..too many incidents so its gotta have something to it. If he aint guilty i guess i just missed out on ONE guys music.

    • Terrance Goodman

    How can you charge a 14 or 15 year old as an adult in a murder case, but then say that when it comes to sex that they are minors and too immature to make that kind of a decision?

    • seveneightyseven

      All depends on race my friends. On the real though, I assume you a grown man and would you do ANYTHING sexual with a 14 year old girl? Idgaf if shw was said to be a minor or not, R. Kelly has an attraction to little girls, that’s the problem right there, he’s a fuckin pedophile

    all of that stuff is years old recycled news. none of its new. r kelly doesnt have to ever comment on any of it. he was found not guilty years ago.

  • Terrance Goodman

    This fool paid off dozens I’m from the chi it’s known fact this cat is beyond sick. Amazed he got aquitted. Lawyers drug it bout and paid off sparkle niece.
    Now this fool wanna talk shut up I bet.

  • Immortal

    How in the hell did he justify a wack a$$ football comparison? I’m not going to mention his personal life because everyone has mentioned it enough and most were spot on.

  • Brindle

    this fool is dumb and needs to be locked up and registered as a sex offender

  • Sassan

    With all the supposed so-called “evidence”, does one think the prosecutor would give R. Kelly a pass for all these “rapes”? I think not. The fact is that these were accusations from people who looked at Kellz as a dollar sign. If there was SO MUCH LEGIT EVIDENCE, it is preposterous to think that charges would not have been filed out of the dozens and dozens of these accusations. So-called “reporting” from a nobody loser reporter trying to gain his fame off the back of R. Kelly.

    • SBRon

      Uuuuh…perhaps he got a “pass” because none of those 14 & 15 year old girls were white??
