For some reason, R. Kelly decided to disable embedding videos from my new favorite thing on You Tube, R. Kelly TV. I even added a new random feature to the blog because I loved R. Kelly TV so much! Even though he has made it increasingly difficult to cover R. Kelly TV, I'd like to point you to the latest clip, in which R. Kelly talks about "How He Writes His Music" and which I've also transcribed for you:
"Writing music every day, all day...I'm writin' right now. It's not a sit down and like...come up with something for me no more. Life is a song and I've realized that. I got a leash on it now and I know how to walk it. It's like, I am music and wherever I go music is being written, even if I haven't heard the melody yet. It's almost like just sayin', you know, why wouldn't I want the ball to shoot the last shot, you know what I'm sayin', if I know I already made it. And that's pretty much what my mentality is when it comes to what I do. Music. You know what I'm sayin'?"
Um...no, actually. I have no idea what you are saying, R. Kelly. But that is why I love you. That, and the fact that you send out press releases for your new single featuring Usher that read like this:
Once in a lifetime do two mega stars come together. Rarely do such people put aside difference and ego and show the bravery and confidence needed to do something together. And when it happens the people stop, listen and watch. For a moment the world stops and the fans love every moment of it.
Oh shit! Did y'all just feel that? The world TOTALLY stopped because R. Kelly and Ursha are making a song together. After reading this press release and this list of nine amazing moments on R. Kelly's Double Up in which he tops his own damn self, I think it's safe to say that Double Up is my new favorite album and I'd let R. Kelly pee on me. Still.
