He has done some fucked up things, but he is still my hero. He has written and sang some of the greatest songs I've ever heard. "The greatest" and "I believe I can fly" to name a few. His character is controversial though, with feel good and self empowering songs with positive messages to gangster ass songs like Make it Rain. My questions is that, should character matter when it comes to role model. I look up to R Kelly's ideas, but obviously as a person he is more than troubled. I guess it is the same is the director Roman Polanski who has amazing films, yet as a person he has raped a child.
