Chris Keating Slams R. Kelly And Usher, Praises Frank Ocean
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Chris Keating decided to open up about the state of R’n'B.
It appears that Mr. Keating is the R&B police who must save guard the genre.
The Yeasayer frontman started the interview by explaining how Aaliyah influenced his sound, he continued by professing his love for Frank Ocean and went on to diss R. Kelly and Usher for no apparent reason and demanded that R’n'B be more gay (he should take into account that not all of R’n'B listeners are gay and some still like a love song about a man and a woman).
The singer explained that he loved Aaliyah’s futuristic beats and even to this day he is inspired by the late diva. Chris Keating shared:
“Some kids in my high school were doing a step routine [to 'Are You That Somebody'].I was really not into mainstream music at the time – 1997-1998 – but the more I listened to Aaliyah, the way-weirder it was than the Sonic Youth record that came out around the same time, mostly because of her very futuristic and unexpected production. That realization was really exciting, and it’s just stuck with me since then.”
He added out with the old and in with the new.
The star said that Frank Ocean who recently revealed that he was homosexual should be the one crowned the R&B savior/king (so is Ocean a great fit for R&B because he is talented or because he is gay?) R.Kelly and Usher need to go away.
He also thinks that R.Kelly is a piece of shit, he is horrible but can not deny the fact that he is talented:
“I think he [Ocean] is a good new face for the R&B world right now, to kind of usher out – no pun intended – some of these folks.Because, let’s get real, R.Kelly is a terrible person. I like R.Kelly and how crazy he is, but he’s a terrible piece of shit, a horrible person, really bad all around. Let’s get rid of him. Let’s gay it up a little [in R&B].”
While R.Kelly has done things to make you scratch your head, you must wonder what kind of bones Chris Keating is hiding in his closet.
We do know all of the crap that Kelly has done, they are out there and it sure would be fun to start digging into Chris Keating’s past and discover all the things that most likely make him a horrible person as well.
Before slamming someone who has never said anything bad about you, take a look in the mirror – your imperfections will make you shut the f*ck up.
