Toure conducted an interview with R. Kelly on The Channel That Must Not Be Named last night. Normally, of course, Videogum refuses to write or promote anything to do with that network, but this is not really about them. This is about the INCREDIBLE things that come out of R. Kelly’s mouth. In this clip (via FourFour), R. Kelly answers the question “do you like teenage girls,” but not before asking Toure to clarify what “teenage girls” means. Like I said, INCREDIBLE.

“He’s still my brother, but if he’s still my brother why’d he get fired?”
“Why did he get fired?”
“I can’t get into that.”

You might think that this is just further proof that R. Kelly is nuts, but I think this is further proof that we’re going to see an R. Kelly presidency. I haven’t heard mind-crushing rhetoric like this since the 2004 election. His dull-witted clarifications and confident yet nonsensical assertions remind me of my favorite moment from the debates between Kerry and Bush when George Bush petulantly reminded America: “Of course I know Osama bin Laden attacked us. I know that.”

Incredible. R. Kelly for President. The people who don’t work for him say that, but the people who do work for him don’t say that, so don’t listen to the people who’ve been fired, but don’t listen to the people who’ve been hired, either, listen to the facts. Next thing you know, World War III.

    Toure althernates between a kind of interesting guy and a clown. I know he’s BLACK, but you’d think he would have more dignity than to be seen on that abominable tv station. The guy is capable of more forward-thinking stuff than doing stupid interviews on a channel so culturally backward and malignant as that one.
    that being said, it is still funny to laugh at what a crazy nig R kelly can be.

  2. Also,
    My understanding form all I’ve seen and read is that contrary to his say-so, when you push R Kelly’s buttons, something always comes out. Often all over some teenage girl. Depending on how you define teen of course.

  3. Toure looks like he is in a lucid dream and trying to parse the symbolism.

    In our culture beauty and youth go hand in hand. 19 years old is legal. There shouldn’t be such a big problem over this!
