I bet you music loving teenage girls from solid two parent homes didn’t see this surprise collaboration coming. We can all strike off R. Kelly and Phoenix performing a live mash-up of “Ignition (Remix)” and “1901″ at Coachella from our bucket lists now.
A petition has been launched requesting that the White House adopt R. Kelly’s timeless opus to the freakin’ weekend as the country’s new national anthem.
I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
S.R. of Wilmington, North Carolina created the petition to replace The Star Spangled Banner with the “Ignition (Remix)” on the song’s 10th birthday, and it already has more than 4,000 signatures from people asking Obama to “recognize the need for a new national anthem, one that even a decade after its creation, is still hot and fresh out the kitchen.”
“America has changed since Francis Scott Key penned our current anthem in 1814,” says the petition. “Since then, we have realised that after the show, it’s the afterparty, and that after the party, it’s the hotel lobby, and – perhaps most importantly – that ’round about four, you’ve got to clear the lobby, at which point it’s strongly recommended that you take it to the room and freak somebody.”
R. Kelly covered his pedophile phalanges in a pair of red leather gloves at the ‘Trapped In The Closet’ New York screening last week. Shit gets real after ‘Law & Order: SVU’ marathons. Flush the semen and leave no finger prints!
