I know you think I'm making a funny, but I'm serious about this. Has anyone else seen this video/short movie? It is one of the worst/best things I've ever witness. Its hysterically bad, and he takes himself so serious! Go hunt this thing down and watch it, and prepare to laugh you ASS OFF!

I'm a big R Kells fan. I'm for anyone who takes the video format out of the Hype-Williams-fish-lens-in-front-of-some-blinking-lights style that is so prevalent.

This video/movie is very much like the "Busted" joint he did with Ernie Isley.

What I like most about this is that you know the ending is coming and yet you think ... no way ... this is a R&B/hip hop video. It is like a slow moving car wreck and the pay off is so sweet. A ten on the unintentional comedy scale.

I've only seen short clips on non-music TV programs, but I get the message. The video looks fairly classy, but the singing is ridiculous. He's explaining every single thing that's happening.

And then he took off his Hermes cufflinks and sat them on his vanity; he loosened his tie and looked at her, and I was stuck in the closet!

On the Internet, nobody knows that I'm a chubby caucasian man with a penchant for hiphop. Thus "joint" enters my online vocabulary.

Well, I guess they do now.

Holla.

Classic R Kelly. I wonder if he's in on the joke, or if his posse has really convinced him that this shit is good.

R. Kelly Dropped From Ohio Festival After Protests
The musician was slated to appear on the opening day of the Labor Day weekend event, but complaints poured in via social media, mostly about his legal history and charges of being a sexual predator, and bands and vendors pulled out of the festival.
