In today’s episode of “Celebs Say the Darndest Things,” we have someone other than Kanye West making grandiose claims about a performer. This time it’s Trapped in the Closet’s maestro R. Kelly riffing on Chris Brown’s plight, likening the troubled singer to Jesus Christ and Martin Luther King, Jr., while singling out “weak haters” in the process.
Kelly spewed forth the following deep thoughts to Guardian’s G2 supplement (that’s a publication and not a muscle-building protein shake I assume) and R Kelly did it in 3rd person for good measure!
Via the Independent:
“I only feel sorry for weak people. And mostly what I’ve come to find is that the weak people are the ones that are the haters. The ones that’s talking about Chris Brown, or R. Kelly, or anybody that’s successful? I feel sorry for them, not Chris Brown, because 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 is currently backing his latest album Black Panties featuring the track “Marry the Pu**y.”
