Earlier today, R. Kelly proudly announced that “Black Panties have dropped!” The panties in question actually refer to his album, which released today, and is designed to be something of a return to sexy bedroom music of the “12Play” variety. Somewhere along the way, he also said he’d answer any and all questions sent to the #askrkelly hashtag on Twitter. And that’s when things got, well, icky.

And then even celeb Claudia Jordan had to get into it with this:
OMG at these #AskRKelly questions... I bet he'll never do that again! I must retweet a few!— Claudia Jordan (@claudiajordan) December 10, 2013
It was difficult to find any actual questions that Kells actually answered, but someone on his account did tweet the following:
What would you ask R. Kelly? Hit him up. Use the hashtag though.
