R. Kelly Shocks Fans By Claiming He Had A Crush…On His Mother

r.kelly-that-grape-juice-2016-191910

The internet is proving to be R. Kelly‘s worst nightmare.

Arguably the reason he is no longer able to remain undisturbed by legal woes once shrouded in mystery, the resource has given music lovers access to information that paints a very disturbing picture of the R&B singer.

Click here to find out how.

So, after he was confronted by claims of his alleged predatory behaviour towards underaged girls, the entertainer attempted to give fans deeper insight into his own life by opening up on his difficult childhood.

Alas, this did little to move fans of the late R&B singer Aaliyah who was 15 when he allegedly coerced her into a romantic relationship behind her parents’ back.

This week things got worse for the star.

Why?

A disturbing admission below…

rkelly-2016-thatgrapejuice

After dramatically walking off set during a recent interview, one could be forgiven for assuming R. Kelly isn’t interesting in tackling tricky topics.

However, in a dramatic chat with GQ (presumably to promote new album ‘The Buffet)’, R&B’s Pied Piper sounds off on a number of controversial topics. Including, but not limited to, the Bill Cosby sexual assault scandal, his own childhood abuse, and Aaliyah.

The quotes below are likely to shock…

R&B king R. Kelly caught some royal flack on social media after his last television outing saw him storm off set after being quizzed about his alleged criminal past.

Instead of dishing on that OMG-worthy when visiting ‘Good Morning America’ this week, the hitmaking crooner showed off his legendary pipes with a medley of his top hits (‘Ignition,’ ‘Bump & Grind’) and showed off his newest number ‘Backyard Party’  (from his latest album ‘Buffet’).

Chart Check: Adele’s ’25’ Breaks New Sales Record As ’21’ Re-enters Billboard 200 Top 10

adele-new-album-2015-thatgrapejuice

As reported here, Adele‘s massive comeback album, ’25,’ was expected to move 750,000 units by end of tallying last week.  If such feat was accomplished, the powerhouse diva would have crossed the 6 million sold threshold.

Now, on this side of tallying, we should’ve known better than to put any “ifs” in the equation.

Moving a whopping 825,000 units in its 4th week of availability (790,000 of which were pure sales), the project not only skipped right over that “6 million sold” mark, but now lays claim to a new sales record: ” first album to sell over 695,000 copies in four different weeks.”  With the added sales boost, ’25’ also claims the title of “second best-selling album” of the decade, an honor that sees her eclipsed only by the sales of the top titleholder – herself with ’21’ (which re-entered the Billboard 200’s top 10 this week).  Even its predecessor, ’19,’ has re-entered the top 40 this week.

Elsewhere on the Billboard 200, thanks to a few holiday-themed albums and reignited sales of some of the year’s favorite cuts, August Alsina and R. Kelly missed out on the top 10 completely (as we reported here).  Get into the top 20 below:

The Final Numbers Are In: August Alsina & R. Kelly Sold…

august-kelly-thatgrapejuice

Much like this week with Chris Brown and Monica, two of Urban music’s most-beloved characters – August Alsina and R. Kelly – faced off in the name of R&B.

Alsina, who dropped his highly anticipated sophomore album ‘This Thing Called Life,’ saw his album greeted to a bevy of critical acclaim (much like its predecessor ‘Testimony’).  While the latter-mentioned debuted at #2 to the tune of an impressive 67,000 sold, early reports indicated the former would not be able to claim similar heights as predictions placed it somewhere between 30-35,000 sold its first week. Not too far away, Kelly, with his 13th opus, ‘Buffet,’ was served predictions in the 28-33,000 range.  This, after an impassioned plea by the R&B royal for fans to support the genre.

The good news is they must have listened as both Alsina and Kelly exceeded their sales prediction by a notable margin.  On the other hand, the bad news appears they may have been so busy listening to Adele‘s ’25,’ they forgot to tell their friends as both R&B acts missed the top 10 of the Billboard 200 all together (a career first for Kelly).

Find out what their final numbers are for their respective first weeks of availability:

rkelly-that-grape-juice-2015-19101010

Always keen to lure young fans into his creative web the R&B force that is R. Kelly made his way to the ‘Huffington Post’ to discuss his latest album and the current state of his Grammy-kissed career.

Alas, his latest attempt to reach out and touch younger fans was thwarted by the publication when questions posed to him during their conversation led to him walking off set before it ended.

What those questions were related to? The numerous minors who have claimed that he molested them during his reign as the King of R&B.

A surprising scene below…
