A very calm and upset R. Kelly, walked out of his HuffPost Live interview after 20 minutes on Monday.
The legendary R&B singer who turns 49 next month was promoting his 13th studio album The Buffet, which is projected to sell 100K copies less than his 2013 album Black Panties.
When host, Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani asked if the disappointing sales were a reflection of his sexual abuse allegations, he snapped, accusing her of ‘interrogating’ him and disrespecting him.
‘I didn’t come here for negative. I came here for positive…If you don’t think you’re disrespecting me then that’s the level of your intelligence, not mine.’I’m gonna get up and walk out and I’m gonna go to McDonald’s. Hopefully, the McRib is out and I’m going to go home to Chicago, play me some basketball, go to the studio, and work on my next album. He said walking out..

[Effiezy.com says: We think the interview was more of a personal attack on R. Kelly, instead of them concentrating on his music. The lady seems to be negative overall with her words, even when R. Kelly said she was beautiful. They should know overall physical sales of music is falling and also musicians of his era are not pulling in 100k first week sales like they used. Well every media outlet is desperate for ratings.]
