SNAPSHOT: The Photo That Speaks Volumes About R Kelly Before You Even Watch The Interview

If a picture is worth a thousand words, ones like angry, defensive and out of control come to mind.

In what promises to be an explosive interview with CBS’ Gayle King, (updated video when it becomes available) R Kelly claims past allegations of sexual abuse against minors should not matter because he “beat his case” (like it’s contest or something.) He then proceeds to melt down, screaming at the camera, proclaiming his innocence.


If you’re pressed for time, below is the moment from the interview where R Kelly, enraged, stands up and shouts at the camera. What I find fascinating is that he seemingly can’t look Gayle in the eye to answer to her – rather, he shouts at the camera and stands above her. I’m no body language expert, but it’s hard to deny that his gut reaction is to look away from her and stand above her. King is the very picture of patience and calm, watching do himself his own damage.

But what speaks to me most about the interview is a single still photo, taken by a staff on the sidelines of the interview. In it, an angry, defiant, out of control Kelly shouts and hovers over a woman who has taken him to task – one he can’t belittle or control in the same ways he is accused of doing to so many women over the years. In a time when self control might be his best approach to gain public support, Kelly, who has repeatedly been proven unable to be tamed or managed, loses his cool. King, undaunted, sits patiently, knowing that Kelly’s own behavior speaks for itself.

So what do you think?

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
