SMH: R. Kelly Serves As Grand Marshall for A Chicago Children’s Day Parade?! |Video + Photos|


Hide your kids! Hide your wife! Wait, nope – just hide your kids. O_o

It looks like Chi-town may have had a lapse of judgement last weekend as they made R&B singer R. Kelly the honorary grand marshal of the Bud Billiken Parade (a youth orientated parade) in Chicago.

The parade, which has been a Chi-town tradition since 1929, celebrates the importance of family, community and also encourages the youth of Chicago about education.

While some may feel Kelly has suffered enough scrutiny for his underage pursuits and child pornography, the secondary issue that has been brought up about Chicago’s faux pas is that the parade focuses on EDUCATION, and as noted in a 2009 interview with the singer, R. Kelly is illiterate. Kelly admits:

“I don’t even read really, and I’m not afraid to say that. My cousins and brothers used to tease me ‘You can’t even read right.”

It looks like Chi-town is setting this brother up for another FAIL or even worse a RELAPSE!

Check out the video below and more pictures after the break. Um… who is that young girl sitting next to Kelly in the float. She does not look legal! SMH.
