It is fashionable now to condemn R. Kelly: Adding to the reckoning-that-wasn’t, last week saw a slew of convenient apologies from prominent musicians like Chance the Rapper, Phoenix and Lady Gaga, demonstrating remorse for collaborating with him or otherwise adding to his clout in the music industry. But as an accidental quirk of the streaming business model, all the negative press so far has ended up in a surge of money for the singer — so much so that, if he releases another album in the future, no matter under which record label or publisher, he’s almost guaranteed to get even richer from the streams of curious listeners. … [Read more...] about R.

On Instagram on Dec. 13, Simmons shared a picture of himself talking about meditation with Winfrey on her OWN show, Super Soul Sunday, in 2014. “Dearest OPRAH,” Simmons captioned the photo, “You have been a shining light to my family and my community... This is why it’s so troubling that you choose me to single out in your recent documentry[sic].” … [Read more...] about Behind Oprah’s Russell Simmons Doc Defection: Filmmakers Blindsided, Accusers Vow to Move Forward
