R. Kelly's #AskRKelly Twitter Q&A Goes Hilariously Awry

R. Kelly has pretty consistently avoided doing much press in the past few years, presumably because he blames the media for his pervy public image (we'd argue that nasty home video that led to statutory rape charges played a bigger role in all of that). But the R&B singer has been moving out of his comfort zone to promote his new album Black Panties, sitting for a number of interviews (including one in which he compared himself and Chris Brown to Jesus) and opening himself up to questions from his fans.

That last part... well, that was a mistake.

On Tuesday afternoon, R. Kelly accepted questions from his fans via Twitter using the hashtag #AskRKelly. The Internet being the Internet, things did not work out as planned.

First, here's what R. Kelly did divulge:

• "Real Talk" is a true story — the same one that inspired "When a Women's Fed Up."
• He wants to work with Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Sevyn Streeter
• His favorite Christmas present was a racecar set he recieved when he was 9
• He prefers black panties to no panties: "it's the thrill of moving them over or pulling them down"
• His favorite collaborations so far have been with "Ronald Isley, MJ, 2Chainz, Kelly Rowland, Jeezy, Amigos, Juicy J, Fat Joe, Gaga, Future, Usher, Whitney"
• He prefers thin crust cheese and sausage pizzas, but "will smash" deep dishes as well.

And here's what people really wanted to know:
