It seems that R&B singer R Kelly is sensitive and very touch when it comes on to certain topics.
The artist who has delivered songs such as I Believe I Can Fly, Bump and Grind, The World’s Great and Step In the Name of Love stormed out of an interview on Monday with Huffpost Live.
The reason – the host brought up old allegations of sexual abuse.
Kelly was taking part in a question and answer session moderated by journalist Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani, mainly to discuss his recent album, The Buffet.
After noting the slow sales of his latest album when compared to two years ago when he released Black Panties she offered her own speculations on the reason referring to his 2008 legal case when he was found not guilty on counts of videotaping himself having sex with an underage girl.
Kelly didn’t see it that way saying countering that illegal downloads contributed to dip in sales.
“I didn’t come here for negative (comments),” he sniped at Modarressy-Tehran. “I came here for positive (sic).”
“I don’t give people that’s negative towards me the time of day (sic),” he continued. “When you start getting negativity coming at you, you pretty much don’t wanna hear that crap. Especially if it was, what, I don’t know how many years ago.
So what I’m gonna tell you is that I am going to sit here and gonna talk to you like the beautiful lady you are, and I’m gonna talk to you with respect but I’m gonna let you know that any other negative things come at me out of your mouth, as far as negativity, I’m gonna get up and walk out and I’m gonna go to McDonald’s… I’m going to go home to Chicago, play me some basketball, go to the studio and work on my next album.
“I did not come here to get interrogated. I didn’t come here for a deposition. Do you know what a deposition is?”
After that mouthful Kelly then abruptly stood up, took his microphone off and walked off the set of the live Internet telecast, but not before telling Modarressy-Tehrani that she’s “so beautiful”.
Over to you all!
