R. Kelly's NYC Soulacoaster Signing Has Been Rescheduled for August 10 (For Now)
R. Kelly's Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me was supposed to be a soul-baring memoir. "I'm tired of being misunderstood," he said 2009 SmileyBooks statement. "I will show you the tears, fears, and sweat. I will open my heart and reveal the good in my life as well as all the drama."
Soulacoaster was slated to come out, then it wasn't, then it was. Maura got a sneak preview and noted that the "memoir" began with a recollection of "the singer hiding in a drum case." There was also a Tribeca Kells' signing scheduled, and then that wasn't. Now, Robert Sylvester's Tribeca Barnes & Noble signing has been rescheduled rescheduled for August 10.

In closing, an arbitrarily chosen passage from Soulacoaster:
Living with me was rough. Under all the pressure, I'd gotten out of shape and gained weight. I'd gone from being R. Kelly to R. Belly.
