YMMV / R. Kelly

  • Anvilicious: "I Believe I Can Fly" can come across as this.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: R. Kelly has had one during his live show, as Aziz Ansari describes in his standup Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening. It contained a short break showing a video of him playing basketball, and goes back on stage without a mention of the reasoning behind the video.
  • Memetic Mutation: It's the remix to ignition / [insert topic] edition / this line's here to setup the / punchline rhymes with ignition
    • Any mention of R. Kelly these days will immediately be proceeded with a piss joke.
  • Never Live It Down: The man must have a deep closet for all these skeletons.
    • Pretty much everyone remembers him for "I Believe I Can Fly".
    • The rape/micturation/sex tape scandal.
    • The piss incident.
    • Trapped in a Closet
  • Signature Song: "I Believe I Can Fly", "Bump N Grind" or "Ignition (Remix)".
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: The overly sweet and Anvilicious "I Believe I Can Fly", although the fact that it's the theme for a highly panned film certainly doesn't help.
