The self proclaimed “Pied Piper of R&B” is penning a memoir, which will detail his musical career, the death of his mother and the child pornography case he faced. R. Kelly has collaborated and written songs for well-known musical artists such as Michael Jackson, Mary J. Blige and Celine Dion.
“I’m writing this book as Robert, not R. Kelly,” said the 42-year-old singer. “I’m tired of being misunderstood. I will show you the tears, fears, and sweat. I will open my heart and reveal the good in my life as well as all the drama. I want to tell it like it is.”
The book will be published in 2011 by SmileyBooks, a publishing company founded by host Tavis Smiley.
“We are thrilled to be the conduit through which R. Kelly will tell his own story,” Smiley said. “He has earned the right to tell his story his own way.”
I might have to check this out. Would you read his book?
