R. Kelly to magazine: 'I'm the Martin Luther King'

R. KELLY | Rapper, still up on child porn charges, compares himself to slain civil rights leader

May 17, 2007

R. Kelly compares himself to Muhammad Ali, Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley -- and even Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. -- in a magazine interview that hits the street just in time for the release of his new album this month.

Kelly, the Chicago native who rose from street singer to star before facing criminal charges of having sex with an underage girl, made the comments in the spring/summer issue of Hip-Hop Soul magazine.

I used to respect this guy ages ago when he first made his break into mainstream radio. He wrote all his own songs, and even played every instrument.

Then, Kells goes on to sell good ol' Michael Jackson a song and it was down hill from there.

Hmm.. wonder what big Mike influenced on'em...

I don't see R. Kelly out there campaigning for equal civil rights among blacks and other minorities. But I do hear him rapping about demeaning women, drugs and other wonderful things. Somehow, I don't quite think he's the Martin Luther King of our time.

Seems like he is a flirt afterall. He just loves to flirt with PR disasters.
