R. Kelly Addresses Fans After Throat Surgery, Coughs a Lot

Earlier this month, R. Kelly was hospitalized after undergoing emergency surgery to drain an abscess on one of his tonsils. It was unclear what the severity of the situation was, although things are looking up: Kellz has released a video in which he addresses the fans worried about his health. While coughing through a SARS mask, Kelly thanks all the "prayer warriors" out there and explains that the doctor said the surgery went well; also, as soon as he can, he's going back into the studio. Okay, yes, this thing's pretty creepy! Is it the beginning of Kelly's increasingly more eccentric late period? Let's hope so. [VIBE]
