Some Of R. Kelly’s Upcoming Tour Dates Have Been Cancelled

R. Kelly (aka Robert Sylvester Kelly)

The past few weeks have been pretty bad for everyone’s favorite creepy uncle, R. Kelly. First, we found out about his No Checkout Time bed and breakfast filled with women he Pied Piper-ed into staying with him. Next, we heard from one of his “captives” who wanted to inform us all that he’s the best man she’s ever known and is STAYYYYIN’! Then, we got an exclusive look behind the curtain of the Wizard of Whiz’s world, even being treated to a story from one of the munchkins who escaped his urine scented Lollipop Guild. And through it all, his fans have been supportive and continued to throw money at him for his current After Party tour. Well, that’s finally come to an end! It seems like common sense is ready to overtake this madness, because a few of his tour dates have been cancelled.

TMZ reports that four out of ten upcoming shows (two in Louisiana, one in Dallas and one in Los Angeles) have been axed from the After Party roster. This comes as no surprise since his ticket sales are now lower than his morals. His first show since the sex cult allegations broke occurred last Friday night in Virginia Beach and had a horrible turn out with the venue barely being filled to half capacity. Now, a smarter person would reassess the situation and think to himself, “You know what? I’ma just go home and wait for this shit to die down. But no. Not Uncle Pissy. He’s determined that the show must go on!

Sources close to Kelly tell TMZ the tour will absolutely go on, explaining the L.A. show was only canceled because of a scheduling conflict with another nearby stop. The sources would not comment about the other 3 terminated shows. As of Monday, there are still a few dates left of the “After Party” tour that have tickets for sale.

I think his fans are finally beginning to step, step away from the smell of bullshit R. Kelly carries around with him. Honestly, I’m surprised that people took this long to push back from all of this nonsense. And when I say ‘took this long’ I am, of course, referring to the 1990’s when he married his child-bride of 15 seconds Aaliyah. I’m sure every morning when he wakes up his issues tap him on the shoulder and whisper ever so lovingly “You remind me of something… a predator.

It’s not looking too good for R. Kelly nowadays and the spiral can only go downhill as the allegations wreak more havoc on his income. And everyone knows that the best way to mess with someone is to hit them deep in the pockets. Although in R. Kelly’s case, “in the pockets” could also refer to where he hides the hard candy he uses to lure his victims back to the Palace of Piss.

Inside R. Kelly’s Sick, Sad World

R. Kelly (aka Robert Sylvester Kelly)

A woman who claims to have intimate knowledge of some of the vile shit we’ve been hearing about at the R. Kelly complex has come forward, and she’s given the harrowing details to Jezebel. And she has receipts. Literally. She has the receipts that prove she was there.

Jezebel reports that the woman, who is given the pseudonym Kim, had an ongoing sexual relationship with R. Kelly. Kim met him about a year ago when she was pulled onstage at a concert. The report states that Kim, who is white, in her mid-twenties and not involved in the music industry (unlike most of the other women involved), “flew to see Kelly about ten times” and that “she said she had been with Kelly as recently as this summer.” It seems Kim was well aware of what she was doing and made it clear that she was never personally under R. Kelly’s Svengali-esque influence. But she has apparently seen some shit… As to those receipts, Jezebel reports:

She provided screenshots of text messages she said were between her and Kelly’s assistant, Diana Copeland, as well as a few between her and Kelly (although, she said, “he’s basically illiterate” and prefers phone calls and FaceTime). She also showed Jezebel travel itineraries for the trips she took to see him, hotel receipts, and a photo she took of the singer asleep on a hotel couch. The itineraries and receipts match up with both Kelly’s tour history and travel documented on Kim’s Instagram account.

Kim’s not fucking around. Well, she was fucking around, but at least she was methodical about that shit. Enjoy the part where she calls him out for being illiterate, because that’s the last “fun” detail you’ll read in this story. Kim detailed some of rules R. Kelly has for the girls which anybody who’s read Helter Skelter or Going Clear will not be surprised by. Jezebel reports that Kim said:

“When we’re out we’re not allowed to look at anyone. We have to keep our heads down.”

The girls are also instructed to “tell on each other. If we’re in an Uber and we chat up the driver we’re supposed to tell him this girl did this or that. He’s very controlling and manipulative. He likes to be in control.”

The women are all instructed to call Kelly “Daddy” at all times, she said, while he refers to them as his “babies.”

“We’re not allowed to talk about anything. We can compliment shoes or nail polish or make small talk about the weather but we can’t talk about any personal details.”

“He records everything. Absolutely everything.”

Yep, that is some classic manipulation torn from the pages of the L. Ron Hubbard playbook. Kim says she never saw “any violence whatsoever,” but gives one particularly disturbing account of a girl being punished for not performing a sex act when requested. The girl was made to strip completely naked with the exception of a heavy chain necklace. Kim goes on, telling Jezebel:

“He had his iPad recording and she was naked except for a big chain and she was running laps from one end of the room to the other. She was running laps around the room and apologizing. She kept saying, ‘I’ve been bad, I’m sorry Daddy,’ shit like that. And I’m standing there and she starts apologizing to me.”

Kim relays many other salacious details with such specificity that it’s nearly impossible to doubt her account. And naturally, R. Kelly’s toadies are running around doing their best to deny, deny, deny. In his own defense, R. Kelly took to Twitter two days ago (#tooktotwitter; I’m going to keep using this until it takes, dammit!) to remind his fans and the world that he is a legend, much like his homie, Nelson Mandela, who also had to rise up in the face of haters.

The look in Nelson’s eyes says it all; “get yo stank-ass dragon breath off me and back the fuck off, you raggedy ass perv“. R. Kelly has got a lot of nerve. First, he tells everybody he can fly and now he’s comparing himself to Nelson Mandela?  Well guess what? You can’t fly, and you are going down.

R. Kelly’s Alleged Hostage Says She’s Not Being Held Captive

r-kellywoman

It’s never a good sign when R. Kelly’s name is trending online, but yesterday it was really not good. BuzzFeed published a story accusing R. Kelly of living up to his nickname of The Pied Piper of R&B. They claimed he had lured young women into various homes and kept them in what was implied to be R. Kelly’s version of a cult. R. Kelly denied (via his rep) that he was involved in any such sex cult. One of the women with R. Kelly has recently spoken, and she also denies anything R. Kelly-ish is happening.

TMZ spoke to Joycelyn Savage, the 21-year-old daughter whose parents claimed R. Kelly lured her in by offering to help her with her music career in 2015. Joycelyn’s parents Timothy and Jonjelyn Savage held a press conference outside of one of R. Kelly’s alleged properties in Georgia. Jonjelyn claims the inside of the home is set up like a hotel for the girls, and that there is a special “black room” specifically for sex. Jonjelyn describes her daughter as “severely brainwashed.” She asks that R. Kelly release Joycelyn. Asante McGee, a woman who claims she once lived in a house with R. Kelly and admits she was once an R. Kelly fan, also spoke. She says she has witnessed some stuff in the house, and she didn’t like what she saw. According to Timothy, Joycelyn has Stockholm syndrome.

Joycelyn responded to the comments made in her parents’ press conference, and her story is much different. She says she’s in a “happy place” and denies she’s being brainwashed. She also denies that she’s being held hostage, or being forced to do anything she doesn’t want to do. She admits she hasn’t really spoken to her parents in 5 to 6 months, and says she decided to speak out because everything had “gotten out of hand.

Then it got a little weird. Joycelyn was asked if she’s currently in Georgia, she refused to answer. When asked if she’s with other roommates or if she’s free to leave wherever she currently is, she refused to answer that as well.

Joycelyn’s father Timothy tells TMZ that Joycelyn’s refusal to confirm her location confirms his belief that she’s being told what she can and cannot do. Timothy defiantly says he’s “waiting on” R. Kelly to file a lawsuit so everyone can see his “dirty laundry.

Several of R. Kelly’s neighbors spoke to TMZ, and they also deny R. Kelly was running a cult compound. R. Kelly rented a home in a gated community in Duluth, Georgia. The neighbors claim they saw “a bunch” of women coming and going from the home. They claimed that R. Kelly and his entourage would show up every couple of months and stay for less than a week. They say the house in question has been vacant for several months. They add that they absolutely would have called the police if they thought something shady was going on.

Joycelyn claims she’s not being held captive. Okay. But someone really should have warned her before she agreed to speak, that she should maybe reconsider sitting in front of closed curtains and filming with a webcam-resolution camera at an awkward angle. It’s kind of hard for me to believe she’s not being held hostage when I keep imagining the camera accidentally falling off the table and showing R. Kelly on the other side sitting in a director’s chair and holding a set of cue cards.

Why Grace Kelly’s «Wedding of the Century» Still Blows Our Minds 61 Years Later

When you think of an opulent royal wedding, Prince William and Kate Middleton or Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s lavish London nuptials probably come to mind. Long before either of those couples tied the knot, however, a different royal pair made waves with their mind-blowing wedding celebration: Grace Kelly and Monaco’s Prince Rainier III. The couple first met at the Cannes Film Festival in 1955 and were engaged a few months later. Their glamorous wedding was held soon afterward on April 18, 1956, and remains one of the most glamorous affairs in royal history. Let’s take a look back at why it had jaws on the floor back then and still blows our minds 61 years later.

Megyn Kelly’s Alex Jones Interview Got Worse Ratings Than an America’s Funniest Home Videos Rerun

Megyn Kelly’s Alex Jones interview was more uneventful than its actual content previously suggested. Deadline reports that per early ratings reports, 3.5 million people watched the episode of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, making it the lowest viewership her new Sunday show has received in its short run.

Megyn Kelly’s Interview With Alex Jones Got Her Dropped As Host Of A Sandy Hook Benefit 

wenn31460755

One-time Fox News sweetheart Megyn Kelly made her debut on NBC News a little over a week ago with a Vladimir Putin interview, and it was supposed to be a real fucking get, or something, but it left some people screaming at her to take a long course at Howard Stern’s Night School Of How To Really Interview A Bitch, because she didn’t get anything out of him. Megyn is getting shit again and this time it’s for an interview that hasn’t even aired yet. On Sunday night, NBC will barf up an interview that Megyn did with conspiracy theorist and “performance artist” Alex Jones, who thinks the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre was a staged government hoax involving actors. Because Megyn gave a platform to a tinfoil hat-wearing ass nugget, she’s been dropped as host of a Sandy Hook benefit and her Sunday night show has lost a sponsor.

A piece of Megyn’s interview with Alex is about his theory that Sandy Hook was a hoax. Well, who knew that when you interview a Sandy Hook truther, a Sandy Hook benefit will let you know that they want nothing to do with you. The Washington Post says that the organizers of an annual gala for the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, a nonprofit gun violence prevention group founded by family members of some of the Sandy Hook shooting victims, has let Megyn go as host. I know, Megyn Kelly hosting a Sandy Hook gala is a WTF in itself.

“Sandy Hook Promise cannot support the decision by Megyn or NBC to give any form of voice or platform to Alex Jones and have asked Megyn Kelly to step down as our Promise Champion Gala host. It is our hope that Megyn and NBC reconsider and not broadcast this interview.”

Chase has also washed their hands of Megyn Kelly and have pulled their ads from her show.

It doesn’t seem like NBC is going to drop Alex Jones’ interview. Liz Cole, the executive producer of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, said that they’re serious journalists and it’s their job to interview people in the news no matter how gross they are. Liz said that people should watch the interview before getting outraged. Megyn spit up her own statement, saying that she also gets the heaves from Alex Jones’ Sandy Hook theory, but that as a serious journalist, it’s her job to “shine a light.” 

Even Alex Jones himself wants NBC to drop his interview into the shit can. Alex calls his interview with Megyn a “hit pieceand says the show misrepresented” his views on Sandy Hook.

So let’s see…

Megyn’s NBC News show hasn’t even been on two weeks and so far not many are impressed, she lost an advertiser and the smegma dingle she interviewed isn’t happy with her interview. Outside of NBC Studios right now, Tamron Hall is cackling into the air as Billy Bush and Kathy Griffin stroll in with their resumes to let HR know that they’re available Sunday nights, and any night really.

What You May Not Have Known About Grace Kelly’s Untimely Death

Grace Kelly passed away on Sept. 14, 1982, and the details surrounding her death are still just as tragic. The Princess of Monaco was 52 when a stroke caused her to lose control of the wheel and crash her 1971 Rover P6 3500. On a Monday morning, Grace and her daughter Stéphanie, who was 17 at the time, prepared to leave for the palace after spending time at their country home in Roc Agel. They had tickets for a train to Paris, where Stéphanie would start school that Wednesday. After filling the rear seat with dresses and large hat boxes, Grace told her chauffeur that it would be easier if she drove. Even though he tried to persuade her to let him drive, saying that he could come back for the clothes, she insisted the two make the journey without him.

At about 10 a.m., Grace, with her daughter in the passenger seat, pulled away from Roc Agel and headed down the hill and into La Turbie, a commune in southeastern France. Approximately two miles from La Turbie, Grace missed an especially steep turn, causing the car to crash into a retaining wall and drop more than 100 feet over a cliff. When paramedics arrived, Grace was alive but unconscious and in critical condition. She and Stéphanie were transported to the Monaco Hospital, which has since been renamed the Princess Grace Hospital Centre. A day later, she suffered a second hemorrhage and never regained consciousness. While it has been widely thought that she succumbed to her injuries from the crash, Grace actually died on Tuesday night after her husband, Prince Rainier, chose to take her off life support.

On the following Saturday, over 400 people, including Cary Grant, Nancy Reagan, and Princess Diana, said farewell to the Hollywood icon, while close to 100 million viewers tuned in on TV. The funeral was held at Saint Nicholas Cathedral in Monaco, where Grace had her fairy-tale wedding to Prince Rainier in 1956. Stéphanie, the youngest of Grace and Rainier’s three children, was not present at the funeral as she was still being hospitalized for minor injuries from the accident. After a requiem mass, Grace was laid to rest in the Grimaldi family vault.
