Most likely, by now, you have fully absorbed Double Up
, the latest chart-topping treatise from crazed/brilliant R&B Lothario R. Kelly.
Which means that, despite the current attention lavished on lead single ¨I´m a Flirt,¨ you have discovered the record´s true emotional core, the slow-jam ballad ¨Sex Planet.¨ ¨Sex Planet¨ is not a metaphor. It describes, in some detail, the act of coitus. In space. With R. Kelly. Some have grumbled that the images, references, and rhymes that compose ¨Sex Planet¨ (most notably the pairing of painless
) are a bit childish and obvious. To them, we say: To be so base and silly requires dedication and real skill.
To help shed light on R. Kelly´s misunderstood creative process, below we offer a page literally ripped from his sketchbook, in which he muses, doodles, and gradually forms the central artistic tenets of ¨Sex Planet.¨ If this also involves drawing pictures of Chewbacca in a compromising position, so be it. He is an artist, and artists do what they must.
