R. Kelly

R. Kelly

*Not only did R. Kelly do an extensive interview about his career for the latest issue of GQ magazine, he also sang and narrated his life story in a 45-minute video that you have to see to believe.

“I love music. I’m pregnant by it,” Kels says at one point as he sits in front of a camera and shares such stories as getting shot while riding his bike, earning hundreds of dollars performing in front of McDonalds, moving from Chicago to Venice beach and loving his mother so much that he asked her to marry him.

“I said I promise you momma, no matter what, by any means necessary, I will be one of the best singers, songwriters this world has ever seen,” Kelly says.

Below, both the original and “abridged” versions of Kelly’s biotune.
