Miley, Charlie and more!

R. Kelly is both super weird and kinda genius. How, you may ask? Well: The Trapped in the Closet series, his numerous hit albums, Ignition (Remix) — the man even wrote I Believe I Can Fly!
And even though Kelly’s been busy sharing the stage with pop star Lady Gaga, performing their hit ARTPOP collab Do What You Want, the R&B star has a new album of his own that he needs to promote called Black Panties. That’s right, Black Panties.
Kelly appeared on Jimmy Kimmel last night as the musical guest to perform a medley of tracks from the album with guest 2 Chainz. To kick things off, though, Kelly recreated his album cover by playing a violin — except the violin is a woman. He plays her with a bow. What. The. Heck. But, you know what? This is exactly what one would expect from the weirdo genius and we kind of love it (yes, we realize it’s objectification, but it’s also R. Kelly. Everything the man sings about has a strange sexual connotation to it).
Watch R. Kelly, and guest 2 Chainz, perform Genius, My Story and You Deserve Better below. Have you listened to Black Panties yet? What do you think?Tweet
