The Rejected Petition
One of the top Las Vegas spots that are full of entertainment and a target of many musicians and entertainers is the House of Blues. R. Kelly had intentions of performing at the House of Blues. A group of women has signed a petition to cancel R. Kelly’s performance at the House of Blue. Las Vegas is well known for underage girls and a lot of sex trafficking. The group of women believes that the minor girls are at risk when R. Kelly visits the City. Conversely, R. Kelly has been found not guilty in almost all of his lawsuits against child pornography. Though it is claimed that there is a tape that shows the singer in sexual acts with underage girls of about thirteen or fourteen. Some reports also claim that the was recorded urinating in one of the girl’s mouth. For that, the ladies are mobilizing people to sign the petition to prevent Kells from performing at the House of Blues.
The other side of the coin
Not everyone will have negative reviews about the singer. Since the singer is not loved and valued by some ladies, some Las Vegas want to make an R. Kelly Las Vegas tour happen. The Vegas Boyz presented R. Kelly and Lil Kim, who performed at the House of Blue in May 2015. This is the same venue where the singer was blocked from performing. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and as far as the fans are concerned, Kells has been and will be a great artist. At 48 now, Kells is still doing his thing, and he also has an album released this year. He is not on any tour currently, but he might drop in Las Vegas anytime. Whether he is coming to perform, or just have fun, he knows better and he is still a great crowd puller for many music lovers.
