The outcry that has followed “Surviving R. Kelly” grew so intense that it likely forced the label’s hand.
Surviving R. Kelly is a six-part Lifetime documentary detailing sexual abuse allegations against R. Kelly that he has continuously denied. It aired over three nights, from January 3 to January 5, 2019.
Filmmaker and music critic Dream Hampton served as executive producer and musicians Chance the Rapper, John Legend and Stephanie "Sparkle" Edwards appeared in the documentary. Its premiere episode on January 3, 2019, was Lifetime's highest-rated program in more than two years, with 1.9 million total viewers.
It’s sad that this kind of documentary is what gets ratings.
From what I understand Kelly has not been convicted of a crime and maintains his innocence. But when you see the damage and result of his actions it makes you wonder.
Could this be a breach of contract between RCA/Sony and Kelly? Possibly, but who would want to associate with the sexually abusive behavior that Kelly brings to the table dating back 20 years.
According to strong women, men who make an effort to keep a woman happy are the sexiest. She’ll be attracted to such a man, admire his initiatives, and appreciate his persistence.
Also, a strong woman wants a man who doesn’t back down when he faces obstacles in a relationship. She wants a man who’s willing to move out of his comfort zone to make her feel safe and loved.
She needs a consistent man and is willing to take things slow. A partner who understands that for good things to happen, they need time and perseverance. And once he’s patient, he’ll be able to bring down the barriers and boundaries she has created in her life.
She wants a man who reminds her that there’s no need to burden herself with everyone’s problems. That it’s healthy and okay to relax and let things be. And it’s good to enjoy life and her achievements without worrying about the things she can’t control.
She needs a strong-hearted man who reassures her that there’s no need to be hard on herself. She doesn’t need to strive for perfection all the time. She is good enough.
A strong woman wants a partner who understands that she’ll never ask him for assistance. She needs a lover who is willing to offer his help even without waiting for her approval. Although it might be unfamiliar to him, he needs to understand that she has been reliant on herself all most all her adult life.
But once he breaks through into her heart, life with her will be happy and simple. He’ll make her a better person, and be the man she has been waiting for.
She wants a man who understands that she can stand on her own even when he’s with her. But this doesn’t make you less valuable to her. She still wants you in her life.
