Julianne Shepherd on R. Kelly:
The photo sent around by his PR to accompany "Rise Up", a charity song for victims of the Virginia Tech Massacre, features Kells passionately perched at a piano-- wearing a shirt depicting a photo of himself. On Double Up and beyond, it's like his mind is a house of mirrors-- but unlike other super-musicians whose looking glasses have begun reflecting only themselves ( i.e., his former collaborator Jay-Z and that flatlined last album), Kells' are portals to other worlds, or bombastic interpretations of his own.
