Ten Weirdest, Most Amazing R. Kelly's Single Ladies Tour Moments
R. Kelly may be best known for possibly peeing on someone, but he's also a freaking fantastic R&B superstar. Your mama loves "I Believe I Can Fly" (you do too, be honest) and you've been jamming to "Ignition" since you first strapped on coochie cutters.
Kells brought his Single Ladies tour, white throne, and dazzling personality to the James L. Knight Center on Sunday night. The stage was set up with two bars, two bartenders, a full band, and four Latina ladies plucked from the crowd sitting on stools.
