After Years Of Sexual Abuse Allegations, R. Kelly Releases Song Called ‘I admit’

In the last 20 years, R. Kelly has gathered an impressive number of sexual abuse allegations, including pedophilia and running a sex cult. In a new song called ‘I admit’ the r&b singer does not only deny all of his accusations but paints himself as the victim, claiming he was abused by a member of his family at a young age.

Kelly’s entire career has been overshadowed by multiple sexual charges, including child pornography and being a sex cult leader. Not even a video showing him having sex with a 14-year-old girl couldn’t send him behind bars and the 2008 trial was eventually dismissed.

You’d expect to hear R. Kelly admitting he had done some wrong in a 19-minute song called ‘I admit’, but he does just the opposite. He defends his life of scandal while declaring he himself had been a victim.

“Said I’m abusing these women, what the fuck that’s some absurd shit / They’re brainwashed, really? / Kidnapped, really? / Can’t eat, really? / Real talk, that shit sound silly,” he raps. “Now, I admit a family member touched me / From a child to the age 14 / While I laid asleep, took my virginity.”

The singer uses this song to turn all eyes on his own suffering, to picture himself as the victim, being abused as a child by a member of his family. He puts the blame on the journalist who documented his years of sex scandals or the parents of Jocelyn Savage (who accused the singer of kidnapping their daughter).

“And if you really, really wanna know/ Her father dropped her off at my show/ And told this boy to put her on stage/ I admit that she was over age/ I admit that I was feelin’ her and I admit that she was feelin’ me/ I admit that that’s the sh– that comes with/ being a celebrity/ I ain’t chasing these ladies/ These ladies are chasing me, yeah”.

“To Jim DeRogatis, whatever your name is (whatever your name is)/ You been tryna destroy me for 25 whole years/ Writin’ the same stories over and over against/ Off my name, you done went and made yourself a career/ But guess what? I pray for you and family, and all my other enemies/ I’m not gonna let y’all steal my joy, I’m just gonna keep on doing me.”

We do not advise you to listen to this song, but you may read all the lyrics here. For someone who has lost everything, reputation, career, and money, this is a very shady and puzzling attempt.
