how to continue the venom

if i gave it to josh groban, then i gotta give it to r. kelly.

i'll watch the whole clip this weekend when HBO replays the taylor-hopkins II fight, but i did see some of it on "sportscenter". the "it" i am talking about is r. kelly's interpretation of the national anthem, complete with dancers steppin' to the music and the words "put your hands together", which ironically, was eventually deleted from francis scott key's original poem.

and, like almost every other interpretation of the national anthem, it looked and sounded like crap.

but it's r. kelly's right to make it sound and look like crap. just like it's josh groban's right.

and they both did their best with it, to crap all over it.

between this and peeing on fourteen-year-old girls and the "trapped in the closet" performance monstrosity during the mtv music awards, r. kelly seems to be blazin' a new trail for r&b singers.

so i say to him, with all due respect, kudos on your new crapfest. i can't wait for what's next from you.
