R Kelly Is ILL-LIT-TER-IT: “I Don’t Read Good”

- By Bossip Staff

R Kelly admitted to having some serious set backs. Including being challenged by books:

“I don’t…… even read, really. And I’m not even afraid to say that. 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.

He also gave a very inspirational speech to the children.

    Reading is fundamental. You cannot increase your capacity to learn unless you read. Now that he has his paper straight, you would think that he would tackle his innability to read. Hire a damn tutor, start with Jack and Jill, then Cat in the Hat. When your ready move on to Jet magazine and Ebony they have about a 7th grade level.

    LOL @ Cruzan trini.


    @ Cruzan

    I meant like through speaking in an interview or something. I’ll be daxn if I think he should be in schools with the kids on his lap like George W. Bush did!

  • NegroPLease

    What Black person did not already know this? You remind me of my jeep, I want to ride? Boys in the back of the bus in Junior High School used to make up mess like this. Only ghetto adults and young girls cannot relate to R. Kelly because “his words” of “dat truf”..speak to the unintelligent, the young, and the limited. R Kelly cannot have conversations with women..only girls and in order to protect his “so called secret” and ego, he truly felt like a MAN exploiting young girls. He should have been ordering “My Baby Can Read” so he could begin to learn the process of reading.

  • Kami All Day (Haters give me Promo.....)

    Ok…so raise your hand if you know how to read.

    Exactly. Everyone.

    So, why would we hate on someone who is as dumb as a bag of rocks? Who cares about the money Kells…..your whole persona has dwindled in my book.

    Dumb guys are unattractive no matter how they look, dress, or how much money they have.

    How about you fly to a library and check a few books out?

  • NegroPLease

    Excuse me I meant to say the ONLY ghetto adults and young girls can relate to him!!

  • reereeof2

    Why would you be proud of the fact that you don’t read and are doing nothing to remedy that situation? Doesn’t he have children? How ignorant!!!

  • http://deleted Yasmin

    Lol @ Cruzan.
    That is True. I’d be damn if I let this guy anywhere near my niece && my sisters, not even my brother.
    Uh-Uh. If He cant Read what the hell is he going to teach little Kids.

  • The Official Mrs. Carter

    **correction**instead of piss…

    Im sounding like Kellz…lol

  • Rihanna's sharp n pointy witchy fingernails took the oath

    It’s ashame if he doesn’t try to formally learn how to read and write, because he’s great with words. On the contrary,maybe getting on a reading level above 4th grade could allowed him to forge relationships with grown women, instead of little girls.

    lmao @ “he should have been ordering “my baby can read”

  • john hope franklin

    too funny-no wonder he’s broke!!
    chicago stand up…?

  • http://deleted Yasmin

    How do you not know how to read??
    That is Sad && He should definitely be ashamed.
    I know 5 year olds who know how to read.
    && you’re how old && you have all this money.
    BUT you can’t read?? Omgee.
    I cant say it enough but that is Sad Sad Sad.

  • JB Going to get stock in Nike!!

    R. Kelly don’t have to read to get it. You don’t need directions to have relations. But R. no pissing. Got to draw the limits somewhere

  • Nique

    *run on sentences* …lol

  • MizASterling

    This man is a fool…I’ve been able to read since 4…are you telling me that in his life, he hasn’t been challenged to read….? SMH….that’s just pathetic.

    But it would explain a lot, though…

    “Your Honor, how was I ‘posed ta know she 13…? You know I cantz read…so how could I axe for ID…?”

    The Defense rests, you Honor.


  • Kami All Day (Haters give me Promo.....)

    *to the tune of I believe I Can Fly*

    I believed I could read
    I believed I could turn the page
    I think about it every night and day
    Instead I chose to pee and play

    I believed I could soar
    I cant walk through library doors
    And even when I try to read a book
    I get mad and I sing this hook

    I believed I could read
    I want to know my ABC’s
    I could only to letter G
    Luckily, I know how to pee

    Hahahahaha….I am laughing at my dayum self over here!!

  • lean (Breaking the Monotony)

    I blame the parents….his parents…where was his guidance??? He must of grew up around ppl who didnt care for him which is SO SAD! But as an adult there is NO excuse! This is just laziness on his part! …I mean he had A LOT of time on his hands…with his career being in the toilet in all…he couldn’t find time to read????

  • MizASterling

    LOL @ Kami

  • Mama Mila

    You can tell he can’t read….just listen to his songs…..

  • bored enough for Bossip!!

    LMAO @ Kami

    But on a real note.. Your seriously telling me that with all the fame and $$ he couldn’t find 2 cents to rub together to get a teacher.. Um so does that mean he failed out of what? Grade school? – or was the school so bad that they didn’t care that he can’t read?
    He should have started with his own college fund before he started poppin out babies….

    How is he telling kids to do right when he didn’t get an education himself?!?!?!
