I think we were all a bit shocked when we found out sex predator R. Kelly was doing an interview on national TV.
As was R. Kelly, himself, I'm sure.
But now he is opening up about his odd reasoning behind his first television appearance since being arrested on 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.
Apparently, his "spirit" wanted him to speak the truth.
Sources close to the singer told TMZ that R. Kelly sat down with Gayle King because he is in constant touch with his "spirit" and tends to listen to that more than he does to the people around him.
He also said he felt that he owed the interview to himself and his fans to finally break his silence and share his side.
Of course, if you saw the CBS News interview you know Kelly didn't keep his cool even in the slightest throughout his taped conversation.
Multiple times he called his accusers liars, shouted in Gayle's face, exploded at the cameras and basically was just a huge emotional mess.
The interview aired last week and many viewers tuned in to hear what the "I Believe I Can Fly" artist had to say about his disgusting behavior.
Many spectators thought it was all an act while some thought he was clearly having a mental breakdown.
And of course, others found it all to be a joke, using the pathetic soundbites to make fun of Kelly on social media.
But, sources tell TMZ that R. Kelly gives "zero f--ks" about how he's being portrayed, claiming he can't be bothered by the public's reaction.
However, he seemed pretty desperate throughout the interview to convince fans and viewers that he is completely innocent and that he has already "beat" his trial in the past.
"When you beat something, you beat it," he said.
But countless trials await the singer, as well as numerous charges for kidnapping young women and luring them into his sex cult.
Kelly's most recent jailing was on Wednesday, which was over his failure to pay his ex-wife child support of $161,000.
According to a document CNN obtained, it is unclear who paid the money owed but it was not R. Kelly.
The 52-year-old monster was released on Saturday and said, "I promise you, we're going to straighten all this stuff out" on his way out of the jail.
"That's all I can say right now. I promise you," he added.
He is scheduled to return to court in the sexual abuse case on March 22.
The indictment accused Kelly of sexual acts with three children older than 13, but younger than 17 and he has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
R. Kelly needs to start facing reality, his "spirit" cannot save him now.
