By answering his accusers with his music art form, Troubled RnB singer R Kelly addresses the multiple accusations of sexual misconduct against him. He did this in an emotion filled, sprawling 19-minute song titled “I Admit It” which the star dropped on Monday morning.

“I done made some mistakes,” but Kelly still fiercely denies the strongest accusations against him. “How they gon’ say I don’t respect these women, when all I’ve done is represent (30 years)/ Take my career and turn it upside down, ’cause you mad I’ve got some girlfriends (girlfriends),” he sings.
The prolific artiste also gave a hint of admission to his widely reported (and often condemned) predilection for younger women, at one ppint, by singing that he never went for anyone below legal age.
His lyrics: “You may have your opinions, entitled to your opinions/ But really am I supposed to go to jail or lose my career because of your opinion/ Yeah, go ahead and stone me, point your finger at me/ Turn the world against me, but only god can mute me,” he continues.

The controversial singer also explained the story of Jocelyn Savage, the girl he was accused of kidnapping—a claim made by her parents.
“And if you really, really wanna know/ Her father dropped her off at my show/ And told this boy to put her on stage/ I admit that she was over age/ I admit that I was feelin’ her and I admit that she was feelin’ me/ I admit that that comes with/ being a celebrity/ I ain’t chasing these ladies/ These ladies are chasing me, yeah.”
He then took a stab at Jim DeRogatis, the Chicago Journalist who more or less has made life difficult for Kelly over the past two and half decades. He was the one who first reported the existence of the sex tape at the center of the first sexual allegations case against the RnB star back in 2000. A case that was ultimately dismissed, in favour of Kelly. His failure to get Kelly convicted has not stopped DeRogatis from digging and reporting on the singer.
“To Jim DeRogatis, whatever your name is (whatever your name is)/ You been tryna destroy me for 25 whole years/ Writin’ the same stories over and over against/ Off my name, you done went and made yourself a career/ But guess what? I pray for you and family, and all my other enemies.
Guilty or not, Kelly has found a way to express and challenge the Accusations against him by releasing a single filled with vindication, explanation, and consternation.
