Who:R. KellyWhen: Sunday, December 23
Where:Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center
Why: Kelly is an alleged pedophile (that whole case is still in limbo), uses sexual metaphors like a seventh-grader (he wants to stick his key in your ignition), and doesn’t play well with others (he aborted the co-headlining Best of Both Worlds Tour with Jay-Z a few years ago, and Ne-Yo abruptly left Kelly’s current tour). But he sure knows how to craft slinky R&B songs.
Latest Album: Double Up
Best Album: T.P3 Reloaded
Didja Know? “Trapped in the Closet,” Kelly’s bizarre music and video saga about cheating wives, bisexual husbands, and horny midgets is now 22 chapters long?
