(AllHipHop News) Earlier today (Jan. 26), the highly revered and often critcized R&B icon, R. Kelly, gave an unprecedented interview. In it, the Chicago native opened up about a series of subjects. With undaunted candor the Grammy award-winning entertainer spoke about how his “depth of struggle” was reflected through his gift of music.

Everything from singing in the shower, to sex, to receiving life-changing encouragement from a former teacher was discussed in this GQ exclusive. One of the more penetrating and insightful anecdotes came when the legendary performer discussed his relationship with his mother.

“All I ever wanted to do was music. Since I was 8 years old I could remember having a dream ,” offered the living legend. “My past shaped and molded me into who I am today,” he matter-of-factly stated.  Kelly went on to credit being “thankful” for his past and being blessed that God brought him from it.

When speaking about the close bond shared with his mom R. Kelly poignantly expressed his adoration for her. “In a son-mother way, I had a serious crush on my mom. She could sing her butt off.” The global superstar soon declared, “I looked up and down to her…And I even ask her to marry me one day.” He then added, “I was 9. She said, ‘No,’ and I understood,’ he joked.

Skip to the 25 minute-mark to get all the details on the sweet proposal.

What’s the best R. Kelly album?

    He’s going to continue to deny about the sex tape. And I doubt he’ll come clean about marrying Aaliyah. So this is almost an hour of nothing.

    • Media Brainwashing

      Idiot, he has accomplished a lot in his life. All that other shit is minuscule.

      • Markus

        Dude’s been in the game for over 20 years so if you don’t know his story by now then you would enjoy something like this. But I’m not interested in what he wants to speak on. I’m more curious about what he doesn’t want to talk about. What he continues to run from. And dumbass just for the record, pedophilia is more than miniscule shit.

      • Media Brainwashing

        “But I’m not interested in what he wants to speak on.”

        If that’s the case, you wouldn’t have even bothered to click the link to this article. You care.

        and lol @ running from. He has addressed all the topics concerning his trial numerous times. He’s just not giving you the answer you want and that’s what makes you upset.

        Pedophilia has nothing to do with R. Kelly, you weird creep.

      • Markus

        You’re an ignorant dirtbomb who probably would let dude babysit your kids just to stand defiant with him in his denial. Live in the clouds,jerk. And if I’m weird for speaking on pedophilia being sick,I can only imagine the sick bs you’re into. But by all means turn on 12Play and enjoy your alone time,dumbass. Smh.

      • Media Brainwashing

        You’re an idiot.

      • Markus

        So either your mother decided to keep you despite being raped by traveling gypsies when she was a child or maybe you have raped family members when you have babysit them so you’re an advocate of pedophilia. Wishing something dead because your idol is a deviant scumbag makes you a neanderthal waste of skin that your mother should have stabbed with an ice pick the moment she hatched you. Dumbass,he married a minor. He has videos with him clearly in it having sex and urinating on minors. And because he makes good music you’re willing to give him a pass? My wish is that his next victims are your kids. I wish he opens your underage daughter up like a highway in her daybed while you’re in the next room listening to an autographed copy of Chocolate Factory. You’re a dumb af lost cause who should have been a Plan B pill casualty. Your parents should blindfold themselves, take ten paces away from each other holding guns, take a drag from a cigarette, turn and blow either each other’s muthafcking brains out for not having anal sex and busting her on her back instead of producing a waste of skin like your tragically ignorant child molesting supportive ass. Die,bitch.

      • Media Brainwashing

        I’m not reading this shit, you disgusting loser. I hope you die soon.

      • Markus

        You know you did,bitch.

      • Media Brainwashing

        I definitely didn’t, faggot.

      • Markus

        OK here’s the summary R . Kelly is a child molester,your mother should spit your father’s load that made you on their bedsheets and you sir are a serious piece of socially awkward unfckable listening to Tyga in his headphones while you watch Sesame Street shit. And there you go.

      • Media Brainwashing

        Still didn’t read it, miserable faggot. Can’t wait for you to die already. A waste of air and space.

      • Markus

        Back again,bitch? Lying about not reading what I’m roasting you,your wench mother and anus exploring father? Lol OK dumbass keep telling yourself that. Tell you what. It’s Valentine’s Day next weekend so maybe you can do your slut mom a solid and buy her a towel. That way she has something to wipe away the semen face mask she receives from ten Middle Eastern fat guys in the bukkake scene she films while your pops acts as the fluffer in it. Now don’t read this, you mistake.

      • Toshi じゅんぺい

        lmao at this over-reaction too

      • Media Brainwashing

        You don’t know his story, dummy. You just know what the media wants you to know aka propaganda. Again, if you weren’t interested, you wouldn’t have bothered to click the link or even comment. You’re interested and you care. It’s a fact. And what exactly is he not talking about, dumb f@ggot? He answered EVERY question the journalist asked him. Perhaps you’re running away from something in YOUR life. I peep the projection. Get over it and kill yourself, you miserable piece of shit. And again, f@ggot, R. Kelly has never been accused of pedophilia. Speak on what you know. Actually, I just want you to die because people like you serve no purpose in the world. Literally a toxic waste and imagine you’re a felon. Those tend to be the types to have so much to say. You disgust me and your ugly fat mom should’ve aborted you, bitch.

      • Markus

        And you’re in denial, you piece of John Wayne Gacy shitbomb.

      • Toshi じゅんぺい

        lmao at the over reaction here XD

    Dude is sick, it’s ok to adore and cherish ur mom, but who in their right mind has a crush on their mom. Maybe it’s just me but I see that as very disturbing. Never had a crush on my mom, but I’m somewhat ashamed I wanted to cut some of my boys mom’s. Lol!

    • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      well if he did have a crush, one she died he didnt even buy her tombstone for her NAME.

      • mademan3000

        Damn are u serious bruh???

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        yup his brother said it/

      • Media Brainwashing

        His brother lied.

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Explain.

      • Media Brainwashing

        His brother came clean and said he lied and apologized.

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Oh ok I didn’t hear thst update. Smh on the “brother”.

  • Elayorx El

    Genius is a package deal, so with that being said, this is recommended viewing for anyone with dreams, especially those from situations with a lot of resistance.

  • jeffrey Jones

    Was that before or after he pissed on that little kid?

  • Jay

    This man needs to stop dong interviews, for real.

  • Spijo

    You cant have a crush on your mom. That’s a BIG and shameful mistake one could ever do.

    • Jaymat_

      It’s called “Oedipus Complex,” and the term comes from a Greek mythological story where “Oedipus” kills dad and marries mom. Psychiatrists use the term to describe the relationship between a child and his/her parent(s), when there is a strong desire in the child to be in a sexual relationship with one or both.

      • Spijo

        But is it possible to have a sexual relationship with your own mother?!

      • braysl

        if it’s a term that has it’s own name in psychology, then t’s probably a thing that happens often enough…though I wouldn’t say many people ‘act’ on it. The Oedipus complex is actually something Freud talked about a lot, it’s rather interesting. There are a lot of theories on why it exists, but (usually male) kids generally grow out of it…bury it into their subconscious. This is also the reason why some guys end up marrying/dating/having sexual intercourse with people who look like/share personality traits of their mothers!

    • Media Brainwashing

      Terrible wording but let’s not act like men don’t adore their moms and find them beautiful. I can see those who have had deadbeats moms may feel indifferent but there’s nothing “shameful” about what R. Kelly said. If you feel that way, it says a lot about how you feel about your own mom, not R. Kelly.

      • Spijo

        No man, But does it make sense to have a crush on your mom? Can you marry her or be in a sexual relationship with her?

      • Media Brainwashing

        He didn’t say anything about sex though. Why would your mind even go there? Again, his wording is off but I believe every man finds their mom beautiful.

      • Spijo

        Yes every man find their mom beautiful, but not to have a crush on her. That’s another story.

    R. Kelly’s “Trapped in the Closet” series was one of the more underrated projects in his career. The story line and message in that “hip hopera” was creative and displayed his talent as a great musician and storyteller. I also appreciate when celebrities pay homage to their parents for placing them in a position to be successful. R. Kelly adores his mom, as he should, and this is an important message to get out to the youth these days; to love and honor their parents.

  • You have to give credit to Robert for allowing people into his life. He didn’t have to tell us anything about where he has been or where he see himself going from here. A lot of lessons to be learned from this article. I know that he showed me a lot even about myself. IE: Keep it pushing no matter what life has to lend. I say lend because everything is only for a season.

  • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

    most kids say they want to marry a parent at some point. it’s cause they don’t know what it means… usually they’re more like 5 than 9, though. but then again, most pedophiles are slow to develop in those ways, so it makes sense.

  • macygrace123

    Look you can have a crush on someone platonic ally and not include romance or sex(We survived most of our young lives having crushes on other kids and not even knowing what sex was nor wanting it so it’s not that hard of a concept to understand.)…That’s what this was, a young boy that loved his mom, didn’t understand grown things and thought “well to marry a woman I have to love her I love my mom so I’ll ask her to marry me!” Nothing gross or abnormal about that.

    But the other shit he’s done…Yeeeaaahhhhh, that’s fucked up.
