And R. Kelly is smelly! Sort of… via Popdust, this nugget on contempo R&B:
I think he [Ocean] is a good new face for the R&B world right now, to kind of usher out – no pun intended – some of these folks…Because, let’s get real, R.Kelly is a terrible person. I like R.Kelly and how crazy he is, but he’s a terrible piece of shit, a horrible person, really bad all around. Let’s get rid of him. Let’s gay it up a little [in R&B].
For the first and perhaps last time ever, there’s something to put in the middle bubble of the Swarm and Fluxblog Venn:
I can’t really defend R. Kelly as a person, but I can say with total conviction that Yeasayer is a horrible band. So there’s that.— Matthew Perpetua (@perpetua) August 15, 2012
