R. Kelly Takes Over ‘The Asrenio Hall Show’, Pays Tribute to Nelson Mandela (Videos)

It was an R. Kelly takeover on the “The Arsenio Hall” show last night (Nov. 5) in promotion for his Dec. 10 LP “Black Panties.” Kellz did everything from perform new music (“Shut Up” from the new LP), tribute the recently-passed activist and former South African president Nelson Mandela, serenade the audience with impromptu love metaphors, and perform one of his hits "When A Woman Loves." He even took to the couch to chat about everything from “Cookies” to who he’s listening to, his duet with Lady Gaga, to growing up in Chi-Town.
