Anyone see this below article? Am I wrong for being annoyed by this? R.Kelly is still making millions off of record sales right?
R. Kelly, who gained fame with songs such as "I Believe I Can Fly," now compares himself to Osama bin Laden (news - web sites).
The R&B singer was indicted last year on child pornography charges after a videotape purportedly showed him having sex with an underage girl. Kelly, 36, who's free on bond, denies the charges.
"People can say whatever they want about you without knowing the facts," Kelly tells Blender magazine in its October issue. "They can criticize you without even knowing you, and hate you when they don't even know you. All of a sudden, you're, like, the bin Laden of America. Osama bin Laden is the only one who knows exactly what I'm going through."
He boasts that song ideas come to him in the kitchen, on the basketball court, everywhere.
"I love music, and music loves me back. We're kind of married, and I'm pregnant by music," Kelly said.
