Here' some information about R. Kelly's upcoming show in Cleveland. Last time I saw him many years ago on the ill-fated "Best of Both Worlds Tour" with Jay-Z, women in the audience were literally holding up their small children seemingly as offerings to him.
-WHAT? You wonder why someone would have their 5-9 year old child out at a loud concert at 11 p.m?
-EH? You say it's gross that someone would present their single digit aged daughter to a man who videotaped himself having sex with a child?
Nevertheless, information is our bizness, so here ya go..
