Headlines 06/03/2019

Disgraced singer and general piece of s*** R. Kelly has been staying fairly silent since leaving prison, but has now broken his silence on the matter in an emotional interview with CBS News. The interview is set to air on Wednesday March 6 US time, but CBS released a series of clips from the interview in which Kelly denies the allegations laid against him.

In the clips, CBS reporter Gayle King asks the question, "Do you still sit here and say that you have never been with underage girls?" To which R. Kelly responds, "I'll sit here and say this, I had two cases back then that I said at the beginning of the interview that I would not talk about because of my ongoing case now. But, I will tell you this: people are going back to my past and they're trying to add all of this stuff now to that, to make all of the stuff that's going on now feel real to people." 

King continues her line of questioning by noting that, "But the past is relevant with you with underage girls." To which Kelly appears angered by, stating  "Absolutely no it's not." King then asks the singer why he believes that's it's no longer pertinent, to which Kelly says, "because for one, I beat my case." King then reminds the singer that he was acquitted, prompting Kelly to defensively claim, "you can't double jeopardy me like that, it's not fair, when you beat your case you beat your case." 

The more the interview drags on the more emotional Kelly becomes, eventually addressing the camera directly:  "Is this camera on me?," he then starts to cry while addressing the public directly. "Stop it. All you quit playing. Quit playing. I didn't do this stuff! This is not me! I'm fighting for my f*cking life!"
