Why Did We Listen to R. Kelly, Anyway?

Singer and songwriter R. Kelly has been an American music sensation since the early 1990s. He's sold 30 million albums, and he's worth $150 million. But now, millions of his fans are suddenly purging his music from their playlists and asking radio stations to "mute R. Kelly."

The reason: Allegations have been piling up for years about this man, suggesting that he sexually abused minor girls and held women against their will as sex slaves. But in early January, after the Lifetime network aired a bombshell documentary series, "Surviving R. Kelly," a national emergency erupted.

People are now demanding that Kelly be held accountable. Spotify, the music streaming service, has stopped promoting his songs on their platform. Apple Music and Pandora then took the same action. Kelly, meanwhile, glibly fought back—denying the allegations and announcing: "Only God can mute me."

My question: Why did we wait until now to hit the mute button?

It's bad enough that a majority of Kelly's music was essentially hard-core pornography in an audible form. Some of his most famous songs include "Bump n' Grind" and "Your Body's Callin'"—and most of his lyrics could not be printed here. His music is what my friends used to call "smut." It's nasty. read more
