In the month of January, where cold Canadian winters and holiday credit card bills come in, the best thing to do is stay indoors. It’s up to you what you want to do.
You can play video games. You can catch up on some good reads. You can watch a variety of programs on your streaming devices. Or you can simply just fornicate 😍.
If you choose to consume some content into February, here are three recommended shows you should watch that had social media buzzing.
R. Kelly is a monster.
Legendary R&B singer R. Kelly’s controversial docuseries kicked off 2019 with a bang. Surviving R. Kelly was executive produced by filmmaker and music critic Dream Hampton. The docuseries revisited Kelly’s infamous history of having sexual relations with minors.
Multiple victims including his own wife were interviewed, sharing their traumatic accounts with the ‘Pied Piper.’ The three-time Grammy winner’s scandalous past were brought up from stories as old as 25 years ago. Most notably his marriage to the late Aaliyah, who was of under age at the time.
Despite being cleared in 2008 on child pornography charges, Kelly still found himself in hot water repeating his sexual behaviour. It is believed that he is currently running a sex cult on his properties and holding women captive.
The three-night, six-hour series debuted on January 3 and averaged 2.1 million viewers on the Lifetime channel. The bigger story came out of all of this was the impact it had on social. It was a trending topic (#MuteRKelly) that led to many R. Kelly collaborators distancing themselves from the disgraced singer. RCA Records, his long-time record label recently dropped him.
Public opinion has waned on the 52-year-old, who plans to pursue legal action against the creators of the docuseries. But the jury is out, R. Kelly’s once wholesome image is more tarnished than ever. Had social media been more prevalent in the early 2000’s around the time his child pornography charges became headlines, his career could have been derailed back then as well.
