Updated: R. Kelly allegedly sends impersonator to perform in his place

by Ana Leorne (Google+), 29 October 2013

Update: According to a representative for Kelly (via Pitchfork), it was Kelly that performed on stage that evening. We'll never doubt you again.

R&B musician R. Kelly has angered fans after allegedly sending an impersonator to perform in his place at a concert in Los Angeles this weekend - or at least that’s what the promoters say.

"We was scammed because 10 o'clock we was there, no R. Kelly. 11 o'clock no R. Kelly, 12 o'clock no R. Kelly, 12:45 no R. Kelly. 1 o'clock here comes an impersonator," says one of the attendees, while other adds "the advertisement online through Ticketmaster said that it was a Ced's All Black Affair and R. Kelly performing live which did not happen last night."

According to KNOE.com, the event promoter Cedric Johnson claims he was 'duped' and that he would be refunding half of the concertgoers’ money – however, commenters on KNOE's website say he knew all along he wasn't hiring the real R Kelly.

R Kelly’s twelfth studio album, Black Panties, is due out this December.

    Still Flyin' - Artist Picks

    by Hector Barley

    Still Flyin' are the sound of fun. San Franciscan Sean Rawls couldn't care less about the mediocrity and austerity of much of the current music climate, instead he's just content making sugar-sweet sunshine indie pop with his friends - all 15 of them! There are few bands that can match the energy and optimism that Sean and his rugby-team load of band members manage to create. If Still Flyin are anything to go by, California really must be the land of fun - if you don't enjoy them,... (continued) [read more]

    R. Kelly brags about his sexual prowess on new track, 'Genius'

    by Chris Taylor

    Not one to usually brag about his sexual prowess (oh wait, no, that's right...he is one to brag), R Kelly is back with another song focused around how good he is in bed. Whilst nowhere near as over-the-top ridiculous as 'Sex In The Kitchen', new single 'Genius' is mainly focused around R Kelly declaring what a genius he is in bed. He explicitly states, "tonight, you're lying with a sex genius." And yet, just like 'Sex In The Kitchen', it's annoyingly catchy. [read more]
