R Kelly: “I can’t read or rite”

Many things have been written about R Kelly, most of them no doubt libellous. But if his recent revelation is true, he wouldn’t have been able to read them anyway; he's illiterate.

The Grammy winning R&B singer made the revelation at the Midwest Music Festival; "I don't even read really and I'm not afraid to say that. My cousins and brothers used to tease me, 'You can't even read right. How you think you're going to come up?' The only reason I graduated from grammar school is because I had a great jump shot.” He added; "I went to high school and my teacher told me, 'You will be one of the greatest writers of all time.' I believed. You have to believe it. You can't believe anything if you're hating."

R Kelly is currently working on his 9th studio album, set for release in November and rumoured to feature further chapters of his rap opera ‘Trapped In The Closet’. If you haven’t seen it, firstly why the hell not, it's genius, secondly you should. Check out episode 1...
