Say What! — R.Kelly Admits to Being Illiterate + More

While giving some kind of motivational speech to the city of Chicago, R. Kelly admitted that he can’t read, kinda sorta. “I don’t even read, really. And I’m not even afraid to say that,” he began, before launching into a diatribe about the power of love, or whatever. “I got y’all beat if ya hating on me, ’cause I love you. That’s why I keep doing what I do. Isn’t it weird? ‘You just keep on going! How do you keep going and I’m standing here?’ ‘Cause hatin’ is heavy. How you gonna believe you can fly, you too damn heavy. You sinkin’. Stop hatin’ and fly.” I’m actually going to keep hating, thanks. And you can join Nas as one of those artists who shouldn’t do anything with a microphone except sing into it. [FakeshoreDrive]

New Orleans rapper B.G. discussed his new album, “Sometimes I am denied my props but it’s cool…I am coming back and taking everything the game owes me. It doesn’t owe me anything but respect. I’m still the hottest of the hot. At the end of the day, I just want the respect I truly deserve.” What exciting news. [AllHipHop]

Interscope honcho Jimmy Iovine told a fascinating story about how he influenced Dr. Dre‘s decision to release his “Beats” headphones. “The whole headphones thing came to life on its own. Dre and I were out in Malibu, I know some of you think Dre lives in the hood, but he has a house in Malibu,” claimed Iovine. “Anyway, we’re on his terrace in Malibu, and he says…” blah blah blah. Nah Jimmy, no one thinks Dr. Dre lives in the hood but you. [RapRadar]

Amy Winehouse‘s partner-in-drugs, Blake Fielder-Civil announced some major news on his Facebook page. “Blizzle sizzle has got this no drugs ting boxed off. Turns out all I ever needed was a bit of self-respect an a bit of self-belief. Talking of self-respect I’m on Celebrity Come Dine With Me next week.” The show’s network responded, “It would be a great story, but I’m afraid he isn’t lined up to do the show.” [TheSun]
