Arts Pop: Should music fans #MuteRKelly?


ST. LOUIS, MO - On Friday, August 17, 2018, Grammy-award winning R&B artist R Kelly is scheduled to play a show at the Family Arena in St. Charles. But a growing number of people do not want that concert to happen, including St. Louis Post-Dispatch Music Critic Kevin Johnson, who is denouncing an artist for the first time ever.

Johnson, an admitted former fan, has joined #MuteRKelly, a nationwide movement aimed at ending Kelly’s career.  The artist has been saddled with allegations of sexual misconduct for decades, mostly with underage girls. He has never been convicted of a crime.
