R. Kelly Did Something Extremely Gross 'In Defiance' At His Latest Concert

This was followed by calls for the artist to cancel his 11 May concert.

A group of women criticised arena officials for declining to meet with them ahead of Kelly's gig and cited a "long-term history of sexual misconduct" by the Grammy victor.

"Sometimes, some storms ain't gonna stop", Kelly told the audience during his almost one-hour performance. 'As long as my fans are calling for me, I'm gonna be on that stage, singing these songs'.

"I've been through a lot of (expletive)" this week, he continued.

"I don't have a comment, just a question", Aishah White said. "Can I do my show tonight?"

In one of his first gigs since a campaign against him was launched, the singer reportedly gave a "sexually charged" performance in defiance of being asked to perform a more low key set, he revealed at the start of the concert. He persuaded another to wipe his face, tongue and crotch with a towel.

"Every time a famous individual continues to be glorified despite allegations of abuse, we wrongly perpetuate silence by showing survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence that there will be no consequences for abuse", the letter continued.

"It's important for the black community to stand up and hold him accountable for his actions", Omisade Burney-Scott told CBS News.

R. Kelly is one of pop music's best-selling artists, with hits including "Ignition", "I Believe I Can Fly", "Step in the Name of Love", "Same Girl" and "Bump N' Grind".

Last week Spotify announced it was rolling out the new policy that would curb content that "expressly and principally promotes, advocates, or incites hatred or violence against a group or individual based on characteristics, including, race, religion, gender identity, sex, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, veteran status, or disability".

Kelly's management protested the move in a statement to The Associated Press. While the singer may have felt loved, he was met by roughly 30 protesters. "He never has been convicted of a crime, nor does he have any pending criminal charges against him".
