What to say? What to say? I think we have all come to the realization that there is something just a little off about R. Kelly. His sexual appetite for young girls is no secret. We all know about it, yet we still keep buying his records. So it's no surprise to me when a bitter R. Kelly friend put out a book detailing some of R. Kelly's past demons.
Normally, I wouldn't buy into this, but because of the mention of the late, great Aaliyah, I'm inclined to see what this book is all about. Most people regard Aaliyah as an angel, but industry insiders know otherwise. You can check out an excerpt from the book as well as the author's commentary about the book below:
