  • Good, now I know where I won’t be on Saturday.

  • Wear a raincoat??

  • Haters gotta hate;
    Lovers wanna love.
    I don’t even want
    None of the above….

  • I hope R. Kelly is ready for my Trapped-in-the-Closet-inspired interpretive dance moves. Chapters 5-10 are where I really shine.

  • Crap, I’m out of town next weekend.

  • Lock up your 14-year old daughters!

  • First thing that came to my mind: “I’m gonna piss on you.”

  • I’m happy to say that I can’t name a single song by him (or Jay Z or Kanye West.)

    • that’s too bad…. some of it is really good. nothing wrong with leaving your comfort zone once in a while, don’t you think?

      • Agreed…I grew up thinking all country music sounded like Achy-Breaky Heart, until someone told me that if I dug Otis Redding I should check out Hank Williams. Might seem a strange connection, but it made me realize that music other than Soul with a capital S can be soulful….

    • Although R. Kelly has clear issues, the dude is talented in a totally crazy way. As a writer and producer, and even as a vocalist, he knows how to make a hit. I don’t love his style personally, but sadly his behavior has tarnished any of his musical merits.

      Jay-Z and Kanye, while both imperfect in many ways, are absolutely worth listening to. Both have put out really masterful, artistic pieces of hip-hop music, while still being pop accessible.

      So if you can’t stand hip-hop, you may have a hard time hearing anything you like in the genre. But if you are open, you should give them a listen. (Jon Brion, the phenomenal rock producer, did a bunch of work on Kanye’s second album, so that could be a place to start. Jay-Z’s unplugged with The Roots band is also worth checking out for those who think hip-hop is “unmusical.”)

      • Yeah, I’m just not into hip hop (but I do love funk.) I have actually heard one Kanye song, the “Gay Fish” one from South Park.

  • Hide your kids, hide your wife

  • Dog on the prowl

  • i’m totally dating myself, but when i was ~16 (so this is 18 years ago), i had a run-in w mr. kelly. i was playing pickup basketball at a small park in miami, and he showed up with his entourage, including a lady friend. i forget what we were talking about (probably basketball), but i definitely remember him winking at me during the game. It was weird.

  • What, to shop?

  • Hey, if it helps keep the bookstore open, I am all for it.

  • REAL TALK! And watch ya mouth! Definitely having him sign a bottle of Patron Gold for me.

  • Is he only signing copies of his book, or will he sign anything? I could use his John Hancock on my copy of “Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story.”

  • despite his personal life, he is definitely a talented and creative composer and singer. Give him the credit for his musical skills. He who is without sin, cast the first stone. What hidden sin do you own??

  • In-store golden showers and underage pissings.
