R. Kelly is speaking out about Bill Cosby‘s sexual assault charges.
The 49-year-old singer told told GQ, “Well, my opinion on that is, I don’t know what happened. I’m a fan of Bill Cosby‘s from [The Cosby Show], of course — who’s not? — and for me to give my opinion on something that I have no idea if it’s true or not, all I can say is that it was a long time ago. And when I look on TV and I see the 70-, 80-, 90-year-old ladies talking about what happened when they were 17, 18, or 19, there’s something strange about it. That’s my opinion. It’s just strange.”
He added, “It’s strange. Strange is strange. I can’t explain strange. That’s why strange is strange. Because it’s something we can’t explain.”
As for R. Kelly‘s own past sexual misconduct charges (which were dropped), he said, “When a person is found not guilty, they’re found not guilty. And it doesn’t matter if it’s a murder case, it doesn’t matter what case it is, when they’re found not guilty, they’re not guilty. And I think that a lot of haters out there wanted to see me go down.”
