Sep 04, Mike Siegel rated it really liked it. I wanted him to be more forthcoming with his legal troubles but he did address them – just didn’t quite fess up to things like I was hoping for.

Kelly is fascinating enough that it’s still worth a read. You can find new stories here.

A lot of the book focuses on his shame about being unable to learn to read; he has some kinda hardcore dyslexia, and even when he graduated high school he was functionally illiterate.

He doesn’t delve deeply into his love life much, but he does touch on it.

My man R Kelly didn’t disappoint – a great book of fascinating life stories with R Kelly’s trademark soulacaster and narcissism. My opinion is he’s had his day years in court and was acquitted because they couldn’t prove when the soulacoasher was made and she refused to testify.
