These days, it seems that we are surrounded with celeb serial rapists, who are also trying to bury their past, although their past is catching them big time…. After Bill Cosby — who is trying to sue one of his victims, … Merry Christmas — Kim Fowley — who is still haunting Jackie Fox as she just wrote an article for the Huffington Post about it — there is still R Kelly, rapist and child molester who is trying to promote a new album.
Why is he still accepting to be interviewed? Does he think he can avoid the tough questions, especially coming from a woman? During a short interview with HuffPost Live, he was asked by host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani how the sexual abuse allegations had impacted sales of his album, a tough one!
‘People find it difficult to not think about the lawsuits and the allegations,’ said Modarressy-Tehrani. ‘What do you say to those people who find it conflicting?’ ‘I don’t hear it from anyone else,’ answered Kelly, ‘But I would say fuck that. I’m a man that believes what I see, and anywhere I go—and I’ve been around the world multiple times—and I get nothing but love. Unless all of those people are tricking me and acting.’
But she came back to the point, asking him if he had a healthy relationship with sex, pretending to base her question on an examination of his lyrics, and of course Kelly felt aggressed. He reacted badly, started to ask weird questions and to make sexist remarks. Since the host was not decided to give up he walked off the live set, visibly furious.
I don’t really understand any of this. Kelly obviously should have expected questions about the subject, and he should have come prepared for these questions. Last month, Vulture posted a long article about Kelly, asking the question ‘Is it okay to listen to him?’ And on the other hand, what did the interviewer expect? It was a typical ambush interview and she sure wasn’t hoping for some confessions? So what’s the point to interview R Kelly? He lives on another planet where interviewers should avoid any questions about his criminal past.
