Kenan Thompson's R. Kelly Does 'SNL' Sitdown With Leslie Jones As Gayle King

“I gave you ‘Trapped in a Closet,’ ‘Feelin’ on Yo Booty,’ ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number’ and so many other clues, and this is how you repay me?”

Saturday Night Live” recreated the wild interview between R. Kelly and Gayle King — but in the spoof version, Kenan Thompson as Kelly sang.

Thompson’s Kelly said he agreed to an interview because people “think that I’m some kind of a monster; I’m here to remove all the doubt.” 

“My lawyer was telling me no, but my ego — my ego was telling me yes,” he added.

He repeatedly insisted that King ― played by Leslie Jones ― call him “victim,” but she wasn’t having it.

When asked about “Surviving R. Kelly,” the Lifetime docuseries about the sexual assault accusations against him, orchestral music swelled and Thompson crooned: “It’s 10 o’clock in the morning and I’m talking to Oprah’s friend. If I can just get through this, everybody’s going to love me again.”

Finally, he stood and demanded Jones “think for a minute” about the accusations against him.

“I gave you ‘Trapped in a Closet,’ ‘Feelin’ on Yo Booty,’ ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number’ and so many other clues, and this is how you repay me?” he asked.
