So - the composer of such subtle songs as "Bump 'n' Grind", "Feelin' On Yo Booty", and "Your Body's Callin'" has been busted on 21 counts of child pornography, based at least in part on a videotape of him engaging in "bump 'n' grind" with a 13-year-old. The FBI has authenticated the videotape - and the Chicago Police has determined that it is indeed Kelly on the videotape. His past marriage to a decidedly underage Aaliyah (even though she lied about her age) probably won't help.

Do you believe he's guilty?

And, on a broader bent, how do rappers keep doing stupid stuff like this when they become famous?

Well, I wouldn't classify him as a "rapper," to start.

If anything, shouldn't there be statutory rape charges here?

Not being a fan of R. Kelly, I took him for a rapper based the titles of his most recent releases - though it seems that famous young black men from many walks of life are falling prey to the same stupidity.

From what I can find, in Illinois any sexual activity, including fondling breasts, touching of sexual organs, etc., between a person 13-17 and a person more than 5 years older, is considered "Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse," a Class 2 felony.

Edit: It also seems that, in Illinois, statutory rape charges are typically brought by the parents of the victim, rather than the State.

I think the moment a video camera comes into play it enters the Child Porn Zone.

It's not as if I'm saying the child porn charges aren't enough...I was just unsure about the statuatory rape laws. Stephanie cleared that up, though...

R Kelly don't see nothun' wrong with a Bump and Grind. Especially at Oakland-Alameda Middle School.

Ah, celebrities. Will their humorous antics never cease to amaze?

That being said, this guy is a freakin' nutjob for not only SLEEPING WITH A 13-YEAR OLD, but videotaping it. I mean, fool me once shame on you, but fool me twice? Shame on me! And R. Kelly fooled himself twice so...uh...yeah.

Bottom line: he's gonna be getting a little "bump & grind" in the slammer, if you catch my drift.

And if you don't catch my drift, it's about gay sex. Just sayin', is all.

You forgot the fact that it also involves somebody getting urinated on. I can't remember if he's the pee-er or the pee-ee -- I just know that's nasty.

I saw his interview on Access Hollywood this past weekend. He was all "It's not me" and they're like "but have you seen the tape" and he's all "no" and they're all "so then how do you know it's not you" he he's like "well because I didn't do it" and they're like "well why don't you watch it so you can see why people think it's you" and he's like "I'm not gonna watch cause that's nasty" and they're like "Kay."
