Breaking News: R. Kelly Asks for Another Trial Delay!

My, how time flies! It seems just days ago that we here at GTG HQ started obsessively listening to "Double Up" and watching the new chapters of "Trapped in the Closet."

Last summer as I sweated out my last days in Brooklyn nearly every car that drove by had "I'm A Flirt" playing. I listened to Kells on the subway, at the beach, doing pushups, and sitting at that un-air conditioned coffee shop in Crown Heights, writing about HIV for And yet here we are mere days away from jury selection in R. Kelly's child pornography trial.

But don't count your VIP chicks before they hatch: the trial of the century might be delayed--again! Kells' attorneys have filed a motion to delay the trial, for which jury selection was slated to begin this Friday.

When the trial gets under way, prosecutors will have a unique challenge: The alleged victim, now 23, says it wasn't her. And Kelly's attorneys -- including Ed Genson, who often represents the rich and famous -- haven't admitted it's Kelly in the video.

I admit to not having seen the video, and a quick Google Video search didn't turn up any results. Can anyone direct me to this sex tape that allegedly features R. Kelly allegedly peeing on a girl who is allegedly as young as 13? I feel like I oughta watch it.

Till then, here's the Chappelle's Show parody.
