Dave Chappelle's name was inescapable between 2003 and 2006, when the comedy on Chappelle's Show's was part of everybody's water cooler discussion. During that time, Chappelle often did celebrity parodies, one of the most famous being the R. Kelly "Piss On You" video.
Over a decade later, R. Kelly isn't ready to acknowledge the famous skit. In fact, if you talk to him like GQ did, he'll act as if he doesn't even know who Dave is. We know that Kelly hates to address negativity in any form, but this is a little ridiculous. Read his exchange below.
GQ: Given that a lot of people believe that the video shows you, some of the behaviors on the video have become associated with you, particularly urination as part of sex. Pissing on people. You must have seen that Dave Chappelle skit. Kelly: "No, I haven't." GQ: He did several clips on his show. Kelly: "David Chappelle? [as though trying to place the name] David Chappelle? I don't…" GQ: Chappelle's Show. Very famous. Kelly: "Okay…comedian?" GQ: Really famous comedian. Kelly: "Okay, a comedian. Okay…go on." GQ: And acting as you, he did a parody of "Ignition (Remix)" called "Piss on You." Kelly: "Mmmm."In the interview, Kelly also defends marrying (and probably knocking up) Aaliyah at age 15.
GQ: Did you do anything in that situation that you feel bad about or you feel was wrong? Kelly: "Absolutely not. Absolutely not. That's my answer forever: Absolutely not."
