R. Kelly has been accused of being a monster.
And, in his first sit-down interview since being arrested on 10 counts of sexual assault, the artist exhibited some truly monstrous behavior.
R. Kelly, of course, has faced allegations of inappropriate conduct for years.
Numerous outlets have reported on how the singer has slept with underage girls and how a sex tape once revealed that he urinated on at least one of these victims.
More recently, the singer has faced charges of kidnapping young women and holding them hostage as part of some disgusting sex cult.
Talking to Gayle King of CBS News on Wednesday about these accusations, R. Kelly initially sat calmly and answered the reporter's questions.
Said King at one point:
Women have come forward and said, "R. Kelly had sex with me when I was under the age of 18. R. Kelly was abusive to me emotionally and physically and verbally. R. Kelly took me in a black room where unspeakable things happened." This is what they're saying about you.
Responds R. Kelly, Not True.
Gayle King: Correct me if I'm wrong that you've never held anybody against their will?
R. Kelly: I don't need to. Why would I? How stupid would it be for R. Kelly, with all I've been through in my way, way past, to hold somebody, let alone 4, 5, 6, 50, you said – how stupid would I be to do that?
This, naturally, is a very strange line of defense.
It's very odd phrasing to continually use the word stupid when talking about behavior and actions that any rational-minded person would label as heinous and despicable.
This is also right around the time that R. Kelly absolutely loses it.
"Is this camera on me?" he asks King, who answers in the affirmative.
The disgraced star then takes it upon himself to give a performance, to address viewers directly while crying, ranting and raving as follows:
That's stupid! Use your common sense. Forget the blogs, forget how you feel about me. Hate me if you want to, love me if you want. But just use your common sense.
How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy past and what I've been through – oh right now I just think I need to be a monster and hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don't let them eat, don't let them out, unless they need some shoes down the street from their uncle!
It's quite a display.
