R. Kelly Compares Himself to Bill Cosby — ‘the Good One’ — and Other Revelations From His GQ Story

Published by:

R. Kelly (Photo: Getty Images)

As acknowledged early in Chris Heath’s GQ profile of R. Kelly, the singer has never really spoken much about the various accusations lobbed against him throughout his career: alleged sex with minors, a marriage to a then-underage Aaliyah, that sex tape. Recently, R. Kelly walked off the set of HuffPost Live after repeatedly refusing to answer any questions about the controversies that have clouded his career. However, Kelly agreed to talk about all of it in a three-day interview featured in GQ’s February issue.

Speaking to the sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of a female relative as a child, Kelly refers to a “generational curse” within his family in which victims grow up to be victimizers, the obvious elephant in the room being the multiple women who’ve alleged that Kelly had sex with them before they were 18.

Responding to this later, Kelly opens up a whole new can of worms:

Generational curse doesn’t mean that the curse can’t be broken. Just like having no father, that’s a generational curse. Which is why, when my kids were born, I was Bill Cosby in the house. You know, the good one. You know, let’s be clear there: how we saw Bill Cosby when we were coming up.

Also like Cosby, Kelly has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing with any of his accusers; he has never been convicted of a crime relating to any of the accusations made against him.

I think, man, abso-effing-lutely I’ve been treated unfair. Yes. I’m not, you know, this innocent guy with a halo over his head. No, I love women. Do I like to sleep with underage girls? Absolutely not. I’ve said it a million times. But do I have people trying to destroy my career? Absolutely.

As for the 50+ accusations of sexual assault lobbed against Cosby, R. Kelly claims he’s not sure.

“Well, my opinion on that is, I don’t know what happened,” Kelly says. “[A]ll I can say is that it was a long time ago. And when I look on TV and I see the 70-, 80-, 90-year-old ladies talking about what happened when they were 17, 18, or 19, there’s something strange about it. … [W]hen you wait 70 years, 50 years, 40 years, to say something that simple, it’s strange. You know why I say that is because it happened to me, and it wasn’t true.”

Kelly also speaks — almost — to the rumor that he married Aaliyah when she was 15 and he was 27, saying that he doesn’t speak about it at the behest of her parents. (Aaliyah died in a plane crash in 2001 when she was 22.)

Well, unfortunately when there’s two parties involved in any situation, both parties have to be respected. Sometimes you have to sacrifice yourself in a way to respect someone else’s wishes, and to respect someone else’s passing…. People can say, “Hey, well, he’s just trying to protect hisself.” Well, I have nothing to protect myself from. I’m still successful.

Pinkett Smith, took to Facebook on January 18 with a powerful message to the African American Community voicing her opinion stating to African Americans, “We must stand in our power.” At press time, the video had already reached 7 million views.

As a response to Pinkett Smith’s Facebook post and the growing number of others who have suggested to boycott the Oscars, the Academy’s President Cheryl Boone Isaacs responded with this message on Tuesday:

“While we celebrate [the nominees’] extraordinary achievements, I am both heartbroken and frustrated about the lack of inclusion,” she said in a statement. “This is a difficult but important conversation, and it’s time for big changes. The Academy is taking dramatic steps to alter the makeup of our membership. In the coming days and weeks we will conduct a review of our membership recruitment in order to bring about much-needed diversity in our 2016 class and beyond.”

Jamie Foxx to the rescue. No joking matter.

Oscar Winner and Comedian Jamie Foxx rescued a man from a burning vehicle fire Monday night. The A-lister’s rep confirmed to FOX411 that the actor rushed to the rescue after a fiery car crash took place outside his Los Angeles home.

According to TMZ, a car skidded and flipped and ended up outside Foxx’s gate around 8:30 p.m.

The star reportedly called 911 and then raced to the scene to help. TMZ reports Foxx told police he feared the car would explode so he dragged the driver, who had been buckled in his seat, out of the car and moved him 30 feet away from the vehicle.

Firefighters and emergency personnel reportedly arrived to the scene a short while later.

 Foxx’s rep declined to provide a statement from the actor or any further information.

Idol Round-up: The Best Through the Years

Published by:

Kelly vs. Fantasia vs. Carrie: And the best ‘American Idol’ winner is …

The end of an era is upon us as “American Idol” launched its 15th and final season earlier this month. To honor the prototype of reality singing competitions (to which “The Voice” and “X Factor” owe their existence), I decided to rank the 14 “Idols” birthed from the show.

My methodology? Only God really knows. But I will say that my rankings take into account music sales, industry awards and recognition and general pop culture relevancy. Assuming the top three slots were the most contentious, I detailed their accomplishment more thoroughly than others — because you will give Fantasia her due respect!

1. Kelly Clarkson (2002)

(Jennifer S. Altman / Los Angeles Times)

Being the first “Idol” automatically puts her in the top five, but maintaining a unique identity and name-and-face recognition for almost 15 years gives Clarkson the crown. Just take a look at the statues on her mantle: three Grammys, three MTV Video Music Awards, 12 Billboard awards, four American Music Awards and two Academy of Country Music Awards. Let’s also not forget that while she racked up those statues (and countless other nominations), she gifted us the tracks we love to go hoarse singing at karaoke or in the shower: “A Moment Like This” and “Stronger.” The Fort Worth native released her seventh album, “Piece by Piece” in 2015 and is currently nominated for two Grammys.

Outside of music, Clarkson gave us someone’s guilty pleasure, 2003’s “From Justin to Kelly,” the film starring her and her “Idol” runner-up Justin Guarini. (It was so bad, but so good!) On the small screen, she’s had roles on episodes of “Nashville,” “Damage Control” and “The Crazy Ones.” She also returned to television competition shows in 2012 as a guest mentor to Blake Shelton’s contestants on Season 2 of “The Voice” and a resident mentor on the series “Duets” alongside John Legend, Robin Thicke and Jennifer Nettles.

But even if all these awards and television appearances mean nothing, one has truly reached top “Idol” status when the show that made you who you are dedicates a week of competition to your discography. That honor was bestowed upon Clarkson last season.

2. Carrie Underwood (2005)

(Matt Sayles / Invision/AP)

Musically (and, inherently, financially) speaking, Underwood is perhaps the most successful “Idol” alum to date. Winner of Season 4, over Bo Bice, the country starlet is one of the genre’s best with 17 Billboard Awards, 11 Academy of Country Music Awards, nine AMAs, seven Grammys and a Golden Globe nomination. She’s even had massive crossover success with country-pop hits “Jesus, Take the Wheel” and “Before He Cheats” off her debut album. That album went on to become the fastest selling country debut, the bestselling solo female country debut and the bestselling country album in a decade, all at the same time in 2005.

Her fifth album, “Storyteller,” released last year, made Underwood the only country artist to have all of her first five studio albums debut at No. 1 or No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Off the stage, endorsements have been Underwood’s best friend. She’s partnered with countless brands including Skechers, Nintendo, Vitamin Water, Olay and Target over the years. She also broke into acting in 2012 as Maria von Trapp in NBC’s live broadcast of “The Sound of Music,” based on the original Broadway musical. This was her first major role, following a one-off appearance in a 2010 episode of “How I Met Your Mother.”

3. Fantasia Barrino (2004)

(Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)

True musical icons are known by one name only: Patti, Aretha, Beyonce and the winner of “Idol’s” third season, Fantasia. While still on the show, she went down in reality singing competition history with her unapologetic, Southern drawl, signature “Bobo” two-step and a stirring rendition of the “Porgy and Bess” standard “Summertime” — sitting on the floor of the stage, shoes off! Though many did not believe Fantasia to be a proper “American Idol” because she was a single mother and high school dropout, her talent couldn’t be denied and she beat out runner-up Diana DeGarm o by 1.3 million votes.

Since winning, Tasia has released four studio albums: “Free Yourself,” “Fantasia,” “Back to Me” and “Side Effects of You.” Her debut single, “I Believe” — which she broke her high heel singing on the show’s finale — debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. She won her first Grammy for “Bittersweet” from her third album in 2011.

Two years after winning, Fantasia played herself in the Lifetime film based on her autobiography. Titled “Life Is Not a Fairytale: The Fantasia Barrino Story,” the film was directed by Debbie Allen and became the network’s second-most viewed program of all time that year. Since, she’s starred on Broadway (twice!), led two seasons of her own reality show (“Fantasia For Real”) and is a mainstay in award show tributes to legends including Babyface, Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle. She’s even transcended the bounds of R&B and soul music, as the “Queen of Rock Soul,” touring internationally with opera singer Andrea Bocelli in 2013 and performing a tribute to Frank Sinatra at Lincoln Center last month.

Let it also be known that true pop culture relevancy (in 2016) is established when one becomes their own meme.

4. Jordin Sparks (2007)

(Spencer Weiner / Los Angeles Times)

We have Sparks to thank for one of the best duets known to the modern R&B and pop world, “No Air” with Chris Brown. Though it deserved all of the awards, it was only nominated for a Grammy and Sparks took home an NAACP Image Award, a Teen Choice Award and an AMA. None of that matters, though, as Sparks is the only “Idol” who can say she shared screen time with Whitney “The Voice” Houston — in the film “Sparkle.”

Also check out her supporting role in the amazing “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete” starring “Idol” alum Jennifer Hudson.

5. Phillip Phillips (2012)

(Christina House / For The Times)

Phillips, as winner of the 11th season, has released two albums to date. His debut single, “Home,” was selected as the theme for NBC’s Olympics coverage, but other standout career moments thus far are slim. He’s had a number of award nominations (Billboard, World Music, AMAs), but no wins yet.

6. Candice Glover (2013)

(Dan Hallman / Invision/AP)

Glover’s debut album, “Music Speaks,” is one of the best R&B masterpieces of the last five years, easily. (FIGHT ME!) However, it failed to do well on the charts because R&B and soul music continue to get ignored by mass audiences — unless you’re Adele or Sam Smith.

But she’s No. 6 on this list purely off of the strength of her performances during the show. Her stirring renditions of The Cure’s “Lovesong,” Ben E. King’s “I (Who Have Nothing)” and Dionne Warwick’s “Don’t Make Me Over” are in the “American Idol” history book.

7. (tie) Taylor Hicks (2006)

(Kevork Djansezian /AP)

Las Vegas residencies are usually for (one-name) icons and legends — Celine, Britney, Cher. But somehow Hicks wiggled his way into Sin City, the only “Idol” to do so. In addition to the headlining act, the salt-and-pepper-haired crooner has released only three albums (one was a compilation project) in almost 10 years, wrote a book (“Heart Full of Soul: An Inspirational Memoir About Finding Your Voice and Finding Your Way”) and starred on Broadway in “Grease.”

How he beat out Season 5’s Katharine McPhee, Chris Daughtry and Paris Bennett? The world may never know.

7. (tie) Scotty McCreery (2011)

(Frazer Harrison / Getty Images)

Balancing college and a bona fide country music career isn’t an easy feat, but Season 10’s champion, McCreery, is making it happen while attending North Carolina State. At 17, he was one of the youngest to win the show — the same as Sparks when she won. His latest single, “Southern Belle,” was released last year. New music is forthcoming.

9. Ruben Studdard (2003)

(Los Angeles Times)

It truly pains me to put the “Velvet Teddy Bear” so low on this list, but the fall-off since his Season 2 win is massive. His debut album “Soulful” gifted us an amazing cover of Westlife’s “Flying Without Wings” and the massive R&B hit “Sorry 2004”. The follow-up album, a run at gospel titled “I Need An Angel,” gave us a track that made the worst heathen repent. But after that, he began to wane.

Following a minor increase in relevancy with a stint on the reality weight loss competition “The Biggest Loser,” Studdard released his sixth album in 2014 to decent reviews.

10. David Cook (2008)

(Kevork Djansezian / Associated Press/Fox)

Cook has had a solid career since his seventh season win. He serves his niche audience well and has moderate success writing songs for other artists.

11. Lee DeWyze (2010)

(Stephen Lovekin / Getty Images)

All I can remember is that he had a guitar — as did so many others — but his debut album “Live It Up” did find itself at No. 19 on the Billboard 200. Other than that, “Walking Dead” fans might’ve heard the singer’s voice. His “Blackbird Song” was featured in Season 4 of the AMC show.

12. Kris Allen (2009)

(Irfan Khan / Los Angeles Times)

He shouldn’t have won. Adam Lambert was, by far, the best of that season. Yeah, I said it!

13. (tie) Caleb Johnson (2014)

(Michael Becker / Fox)

Though very few may know his name, or the name of his debut album (“Testify”), Johnson does hold the record for the “Idol” who put out their debut album the fastest — just three months after the finale of Season 13. But after leaving his record label nine months after his win, very little has been heard from the Asheville, N.C., native.

13. (tie) Nick Fradiani (2015)

(Ken Phillips)

As the winner of the 14th season, Fradiani hasn’t had the opportunity to truly have an impact. His first single, “Beautiful Life,” did (barely) make it onto the Billboard Hot 100 last May, but that debut album is nowhere to be seen.

Nate Parker’s Film ‘The Birth of a Nation’ to Premiere at Sundance

Published by:

Nate Parker+film+birth of a nation+PopSourceTV1Nate Parker+film=Birth of a nation+PopSourceTV Nate Parker+Birth of a nation+PopSourceTV Nate Parker+Birth of a nation+PopSource TV News

Nate Parker wrote, directed, and stars in this ironically titled biopic of Nat Turner, the slave who led a historical rebellion in 1830s Virginia.

Based on true events, The Birth of a Nation is the long-awaited story of Nat Turner, the American-born slave who would lead the most successful slave rebellion in American history. Having appeared as an actor in several features at the Sundance Film Festival (Arbitrage, Red Hook Summer), Nate Parker returns to the Festival with this bold, compelling, and deeply inhabited first-time feature—and proves that he is an ascending triple-threat talent.

About the Film: “The Birth of a Nation”

When a little slave boy, Nathaniel “Nat” Turner, was taken to meet the Elders in the deep woods of 1800s Southampton County, Virginia, it was determined he would be a prophet. It became evident that the unusually intelligent boy would become able to read, so he was encouraged to study the Holy Bible and be a preacher to his fellow slaves. But when Nat’s master decides to profit from his preaching skills by putting him on an inter-county preaching tour, Nat begins to see the full contours of slavery and is moved to become a different kind of leader.

Boost Oxygen Makes American Idol Debut

Published by:

american-idol-logo

 

Boost Oxygen, the nation’s leading supplemental and recreational oxygen product, has received nation-wide exposure on Fox Network’s show American Idol. On Tuesday night, January 12th, American Idol was broadcasted from Denver, Colorado, during which Ryan Seacrest came out with a tray of large Boost Oxygen canisters to deliver to Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban to recharge them from the fatigue they felt from the altitude of the Mile High City.

The introduction of Boost Oxygen can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yqr4YOTL–k

The segment was very light and good-natured, and it was a great reaffirmation of Boost Oxygen LLC’s core mission — to make supplemental oxygen convenient and available to the general public for a multitude of uses.

One of Boost Oxygen’s top markets is Colorado, where altitude sickness often affects travelers to higher altitudes, which was the primary reason Mr. Seacrest brought them out. The usefulness of supplemental oxygen doesn’t end there — many professional singers have used supplemental oxygen during their performances to recharge between sets. Singers, from Country to Rock to Opera to Rap, can expel more CO2 during their performances than the oxygen that they take in from the air. They can become oxygen deficient, fatigued, even dizzy- which can be sign of lack of oxygenated blood to the brain.

To replenish their Oxygen levels fast for aerobic recovery and best performance — just like pro football players — they can inhale supplemental oxygen. Mick Jagger and David Lee Roth were reportedly renowned for this, and Boost Oxygen is there for major musical acts who enjoy the convenience, portability and ready-access that our cans provide to Oxygen.

“So we’d like to thank Mr. Seacrest and American Idol for using and sharing our product during American Idol — it’s a great showcase for one of the many uses of our product, Boost Oxygen,” says Rob Neuner, President of Boost Oxygen.

Boost Oxygen was founded in 2007, and is a Connecticut-based privately held company. The company was created to fill a need that has been underserved: bringing the benefits of supplemental and recreational oxygen to those who can benefit from its use. Athletes use supplemental oxygen to improve their performance and reduce recovery time. Other uses are to counter altitude sickness, as an aid to improve focus and mental acuity, as a hangover remedy, and many others. Boost Oxygen currently distributes across the US and is available in Canada, Mexico, Europe, Korea and China.

Your Guide to Meek Mill’s Latest Feud, This Time With 50 Cent

Published by:

Meek Mill and 50 Cent (Photos: Getty Images)

Part-time rapper and full-time internet troll Meek Mill is at it again. This time he and 50 Cent are feuding because there wasn’t anything good on TV and they were both out of lives on Candy Crush.

In a track on Meek’s new EP 4/4 called “Gave ‘Em Hope,” the Philly rapper takes several digs at 50 Cent, the most incendiary accusation being that 50 Cent is gay, which is something that rival rappers have been saying about 50 for years. “I got 50 reasons say you’re taking dick,” Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend raps in the second verse.

And so the two were off.

Round One

In a series of Instagram posts, 50 fired back at Meek: “LMAO Hey s**t head, your career is over already,” 50 wrote. “You better focus on getting Nikki [sic] pregnant so you can at least get child support.”

(Photo: Instagram)

50 also began referring to Meek Mill as “Meeka,” posting a photo of Meek Mill’s face Photoshopped onto a woman’s body, referencing Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover. In several other posts, 50 repeatedly called Meek “retarded.”

The Winner: Admittedly, 50 set a low bar, managing to be transphobic, ableist, and misspelling the name of one of the biggest rappers in the game all at once. This one goes to Meek.

Round Two

As he did with Meek’s last feud, Toronto politician Norm Kelly got involved, tweeting at Meek a photo of himself holding the letter “L,” as in loser.

In a lengthy response, Meek Mill posted a photo of himself holding just a whole bunch of cash, addressing both 50 and Norm’s disses.

“Ya son hate you smfh!” Meek wrote of 50. “Ya swag on below ‘0’ lol hold up….. U always hating on [P]uff [Daddy] and Hov [Jay Z] other go getters from ya city…… U going broke and you miserable …. U really miserable bro…. You like 40 on the internet all day.”

As for Norm Kelly, Meek called him an “old white racist man.”

Kelly fired back, posting Meek’s photo on Twitter writing, “When your girl lets you take pics with her money.”

The Winner: It’s Norm, guys.

Round Three

After a night at Pole-A-Thon in Dallas (sure), 50 got back to blasting Meek, posting a mock program from his funeral on Instagram.

At this point, someone tweeted both Meek and 50, saying that there were more important issues at hand, namely the toxic tap water in Flint, Michigan.

Meek responded on Instagram, saying he’d donate $50,000 to help the city out. 50 also responded, but with another meme, instead of a contribution. “You know you only trying to donate so you can try and use it in court 💩head,” he wrote. “You don’t have money to give away. When Nikki [again, sic] find out you playing with her money boy, oh boy your [sic] in for it.”

The Winner: Is Meek going to pull through with a win???

Round Four

In a post, ironically, on Instagram, The Game criticized the online nature of Meek and 50’s feud which, as you may have noticed, has only involved one song but a whole host of memes.

“So, this is what it’s come to these days???” The Game wrote. “WTF happened to REAL hip hop & the classic way of handling rap feuds??? Never thought I’d see the day when rap beefs were won over iPhone apps & s**t. We went from learning from & respecting the O.G.’s to learning from & depending on I.G.’s lol.”
