    Um, Kells is already in a movie on the internet. Wouldn't look it up, though.

    I would ... if you want to experience the greatest hour in the history of unintentional comedy.

    I seriously hope that the first thing the police or journalist who discovered this said was, "Well, well, well, what the (DOOT) is this?"

    It's a wonder he never collaborated with Chuck Berry, given they shared so many interests.

    This is a surprise. He seemed like such a good dude.

    He's the only musician I can remember who performed the Star-Spangled Banner with back-up dancers.

    So he may be an egomaniacal, abusive cult leader, but dammit he's also a patriot.

    So much for keeping it on the down low.

    What do you expect from someone who believes he can fly?

    Trapped in the Closet is indeed amazing - I believe we've conversated twice in a week about it. But it's not what I was referring to.

    J. said she’d heard about past sexual misconduct accusations against Kelly, but wasn’t overly worried. She is a fiercely devoted stage mom — she and her husband of 22 years, Tim, a car dealer, had moved from Memphis to Atlanta to help their eldest child’s career — and was confident she could protect her daughter.

    “In the back of our minds, we were thinking [my daughter] could be around him if I was with her,” J. said. “It didn’t really hit home. Even with the Aaliyah situation, now that I think about it, ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number’ ... but you don’t think about that. You grew up with the song, and you like the song.”

    I wish there was a way I could feel a negative amount of sympathy for this person instead of my current amount of zero.
