R. Kelly to Pen Memoir; I Predict a Call from Oprah's Book Club People

R_kelly_zorro_mask I think, as a writer, I should be irritated or offended that R. Kelly has a deal to write his memoir, and I should use this opportunity to rant about how they'll give book deals to anyone, but I'm not.

"Chapter 7: I roam the countryside as a bandit. Yee ha!"

Unlike the semi-coherent, ghost-written turds of a reality TV star or the fabrications of some recent memoirists, R. Kelly is, if nothing else, absolutely bonkers and I'd be willing to bet that he has some ridiculous stories to tell.

Really, my main concern is that, based on his lyrical stylings in the "Trapped in the Closet" epic, the whole book will be two or three run-on sentences that span 200 pages. And, of course, I hope he recollects certain portions of his past with an appropriate degree of apology and regret.

In the press release for the book, R. Kelly announced, "I will show you the tears, fears, and sweat." Frankly, any time R. Kelly starts talking about showing anyone his bodily fluids, I get nervous.

Anyway, the memoir will be released by SmileyBooks early in 2011.
