R. Kelly Pens Memoir, “I’m Tired of Being Misunderstood”
Singer R. Kelly is finally coming out with a memoir of his own. The R&B singer will be writing the book as Robert instead of as his stage name “R. Kelly.” The memoir, titled “Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me,” will give an inside look at the trials and tribulations that the singer has endured in both his personal and professional life. “I’m tired of being misunderstood. I will show you the tears, fears, and sweat. I will open my heart and reveal the good in my life as well as all the drama. I want to tell it like it is,” said R. Kelly.
Kelly wrote the memoir with acclaimed celebrity author David Ritz. The book has been described as “Part memoir, part keepsake; “Soulacoaster” unlocks the door to R. Kelly’s story as only he can tell it, promising his fans an intimate and unforgettable ride.”
“Soulacaoster: The Diary of Me” is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com. The memoir will officially be released in November 2011.
