Here’s an outlandish, over-the-top statement from R. Kelly on Chris Brown to top off your work week.
Speaking with The Guardian, R. Kelly sang his praises of Chris’ ability to return to music after violently assaulting Rihanna in 2009:
“He’s obviously one strong individual to be able to do what he’s done. He got knocked down a little bit and he climbed up. You know, that sounds like Ali to me. That sounds like Martin Luther King to me. That sounds like a lot of the greats that have walked this Earth. It even sounds a little bit like Jesus to me.”
R. Kelly than backpedaled a little to clarify his remarks, adding, “I’m not saying that Chris Brown is Jesus or R. Kelly is Jesus. But Jesus is the No. 1 inspirer of someone being knocked down and rising again.”
Thanks for clearing that up, but that still leaves that part about how he’s like Martin Luther King, Jr., so…
Anyway, Merry Christmas! Good tidings to all!
