You keep repeating this as if you ironically can’t see how you are acting as if you’re above the people you think are “acting holier than thou.” No one acts perfectly in accordance with their beliefs but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t try to do what they feel is right.
I’m not going to make any decisions yet but I don’t want to spend money or time supporting someone if they turn out to be a serial abuser of women and minors! He’s talented but honestly it’s pathetic to worship him and excuse his (possible) crimes against humanity as if he’s a musical god
mess. I don’t care if people listen to him still but I do believe in demonetizing certain artists
I’m honored you think thats how I come across
You peoples outrage is so fake. And so now people are saying “everyone delete his music, all platforms delete his music, etc”. To be frank, even if I felt that way, it is peoples right to continue downloading and listening and steaming. One thing I don’t believe in, is imposing my beliefs onto anyone else.
If people want to speak out against R Kelly, it is their right and there’s nothing wrong with that. But don’t tell me to throw away my CDs (which I spent on), delete his music, throw away my DVDs. All because of the docuseries tha5 you took personally.
R Kelly must face justice and the outcome will be what it may. But if people continue wishing to listen to his music, let me enjoy it for what it is.
The docuseries said that some songs were written with young girls in mind. I relistened to these songs. All I heard aas good beats, great jams and could only think of the good times out and about with friends jamming to this song. I won’t let a docuseries dictate what I should picture when listening to these songs. That’s why people are now acting holier than thou. Before the docuseries, they were thinking the same things I said above. After the docuseries, they now think of little girls, s€x and pee. And they insist others stop listening because of these new images in their minds.
Irrespective, his music is out there, he’s played a pivotal role in shaping urban music. And nothing can delete his music from history. I’ll separate the music from the artist. The artist must face justice, his music can continue.
