With all this discuss R. Kelly's alleged assault on younger girls, there was little dialog concerning the man's psychological well being. It is essential to notice that there isn't any excuse for the allegations in opposition to Kells. Wrong is incorrect, interval. It can be essential to look at the tradition of rape, and its results on psychological well being as effectively. Beyonce's father, Matthew Knowles, sat down with TMZ to discuss R. Kelly, and he said that the singer's historical past of being abused is related to the larger dialogue right here.
"In the music trade, we first take a look at the skilled aspect, proper or incorrect," started Knowles. He continued on to elucidate that artist's work was separated from their private points within the music trade within the 90's and earlier. "We take a look at the skilled aspect and never the non-public aspect," he continued. "I feel there's a variety of those that fall into that. They're not evaluated by their private enterprise. They're evaluated by their artistic enterprise." After admitting that he would not suppose the trade has modified a lot since again then, Knowles speaks about Kelly's personal abuse.
"I do not suppose R. Kelly will get a go for what I am about to say," he started. "But I feel it's related within the context. His brother and himself have been sexually abused from the age of 6 to 12. And that makes an incredible impression on one." Destiny's Child did file one tune with Kelly referred to as "Stimulate Me" for an Eddie Murphy film. The tune was by no means positioned on a DC album.
