    How does he compare to his own idols?


    May 27, 2007

    R. Kelly recently made headlines and generated endless discussions on the blogosphere when he made an outlandish boast during an interview for the spring/summer issue of Hip-Hop Soul magazine.

    "I'm the [Muhammad] Ali of today," Kelly said. "I'm the Marvin Gaye of today. I'm the Bob Marley of today. I'm the Martin Luther King, or all the other greats that have come before us. And a lot of people are starting to realize that now."
    Even those who grant that Kelly is the dominant creative force in R&B today question the egotism inherent in this boast. But in the interest of exploring the comparison he made, here is a look at some of the most famous quotations by the heroes Kelly referenced along with more lyrical excerpts from his new album "Double Up."
    'I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.'
    -- The Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
    'You got me locked up in your cage of ecstasy and that's the way I like it' You're my safari fantasy.' -- R. Kelly, 'The Zoo'
    'The stone that the builder refused to lay should always be the head cornerstone. You're a builder, baby; here I am a stone.'
    -- Bob Marley
    'I can't believe I'm gonna be a father / In nine months a child will be born / Baby, you're pregnant in April / Which means we're havin' a Capricorn.'
    -- R. Kelly, 'Havin' a Baby'
    'I wish people would love everybody else the way they love me. It would be a better world.'
    -- Muhammad Ali
    'This is for them thick girls, small girls, tall girls / And this is for them skinny girls, white girls, black girls / Don't matter what color or nationality / I got a sweet tooth, come and get wit' me.'
    -- R. Kelly, 'Sweet Tooth'
    'Music, not sex, got me aroused.'
    -- Marvin Gaye
    'Tell me are you ready girl to take a trip out of this world / I guarantee you'll like it / It'll take your breath away / Gonna get you so excited once I taste your Milky Way.' -- R. Kelly, 'Sex Planet'

    EDIT: i'm not bashing these people just showing that they are not saints/perfect.


    MLK, Marvin Gaye and Bob Marley are not saints.


    the night before MLK was killed, in that very hotel he was shot down at he was in their fucking a caucasian woman and supposedly was screaming "I'm not a negro tonight" according to Rev Abernathy his best friend at the time.


    Bob Marley was married to Rita Marley and had several kids by various other women while married to her.

    Marvin Gaye also was cheater and had sex with suppsedly 2 teen females and married one and had a kid by her.

    And i'm sure Ali has some skeletons in his closet, so the sun-times needs to quit acting like these people are perfect.

    Psychopaths have a Hidden Content and grossly inflated view of their own Hidden Content and importance, a truly astounding egocentricity and sense of entitlement, and see themselves as the center of the universe, justified in living according to their own rules.

    Psychopaths show a stunning lack of concern for the effects their actions have on others, no matter how devastating these might be. They may appear completely forthright about the matter, calmly stating that they have no sense of guilt, are not sorry for the ensuing pain, and that there is no reason now to be concerned.

    Many of the characteristics displayed by psychopaths are closely associated with a profound lack of empathy and inability to construct a mental and emotional "facsimile" of another person.

    Psychopaths seem to suffer a kind of emotional poverty that limits the range and depth of their feelings. At times they appear to be cold and unemotional while nevertheless being prone to dramatic, shallow, and short-lived displays of feeling.
    Obligations and commitments mean nothing to psychopaths.

    But here is the crux: Psychopaths don't feel they have psychological or emotional problems, and they see no reason to change their behavior to conform with societal standards they do not agree with.

    You took the words out of my mouth. MLK would sleep with 3 or 4 women at once. Lyndon Johnson would always hire hookers as secretaries when they discussed the Civil Rights issues and Martin took the bait every time.

    Marvin Gaye was a major drug addict who beat the shit out of his elderly father before his dad shot him. And he had several relationships with under aged women too.

    You're right Bob Marley had many children out of wedlock.

    This is news, you all think that bashing R Kelly is a bad thing... It's not, this gives the media something to talk about. I remember when that tape first surfaced, most reporters told their story of R Kelly with a gleam in their eyes. They loved the fact that he was in trouble.

    When radio stations threatened to pull Kellz music, I called the station and said "HELL NO DON'T DO NO SHIT LIKE THAT!!! I LOVE R KELLY, now play Heaven I Need A Hug." The deejay said to me that they never planned to really pull his music they just wanted to see what the reaction would be.

    Every great has their personal demons that they have to deal and Chelle I take my hat off to you for pointed that out. The more negative press they give him, the more people are gonna be interested in purchasing his music.

    That article just shows how much they're obsessed with and love Kellz. What hater do you know goes and listen to the artist they dislikes album and quotes over 5 songs?? I know if I hated an artist I wouldn't even wanna download the album!

    These reporters can't get enough of Kellz!

    And @ Chelle, thanks for pointing those few skeletons in each of those greats closets.. Nobodys perfect.
