R.Kelly admits he is illiterate

R. Kelly

Singer/songwriter R. Kelly has revealed that despite his musical talents, he suffers from illiteracy and barely made it through high-school.

The ‘Trapped In The Closet’ star spoke of his shortcoming, during a speech he gave at the Midwest Musical Festival in Chicago, he said: “I don’t even really read and I’m not afraid to say that. My cousins and brothers used to tease me.

“The only reason I graduated from grammar school is because I had a great jump shot. I went to high school and [my teacher] told me ‘you will be one of the greatest writers of all time.’ I believed. You [have to] believe it. You can’t believe [anything] if you’re hating. You can’t achieve [anything] if you’re hating.”

It’s rather odd and ironic that one of the most ubiquitous songwriters in contemporary R&B would struggle to read a children’s book…stay in school kids.

It’s about time she received some good news.

Sources close to the ‘Spotlight’ singer have confirmed to Essence magazine that Jennifer Hudson has a bun in the oven.

This will be the Oscar winners first child with fiancé, Harvard law graduate, David Otunga, who also appeared on reality show ‘I Love New York 2’.

The 27-year-old, who shot to fame on ‘American Idol’ was hit by tragedy last October when her mother, brother and nephew were murdered in Chicago, supposedly by the star’s brother-in-law, William Balfour.

Congrats to the pair.
