After Surviving R. Kelly, What Happens Next?
In April 2018, R. Kelly was dropped by his publicist, lawyer, and assistant in the wake of the airing of R. Kelly: Sex, Girls, and Videotapes on BBC. Now that Surviving R. Kelly has uncovered painful truths and further cemented what we’ve all known for years, will Robert Kelly finally be held accountable by all?
“Let’s be clear that they’re dropping him because the heat got to be too much not because they suddenly have a moral conscience,” author Morgan Jenkins tweeted on Sunday. “A note: This came out last April when another documentary about him dropped. So let’s all hope that a whole new level of bad happens to this man now that Surviving R Kelly is done.”
Here Are the 2019 Golden Globe Winners.
It’s been a year since women and allies arrived at the Golden Globes dressed in black in honor of the #MeToo and other issues happening in the world. While inclusion (or the lack thereof) was, again, a hot topic of the evening, there were definitely some applause-worthy moments to be noted.
Not only did Regina King receive an award for best supporting actress in a motion picture for If Beale Street Could Talk, but Sandra Oh became the first woman of Asian descent to host the Globes.
“I said yes to the fear of being on this stage tonight because I wanted to be here to look out into this audience and witness this moment of change,” she said. “I’m not fooling myself: next year will be different, it probably will be. Right now, this moment is real. Trust me, it is real. Because I see you and I see you — all of these faces of change — and now so will everyone else.”
Oh also became the first actress of Asian descent in 39 years to win the Globe for best leading TV actress.
