While Sevyn Streeter continues promotion for her debut EP ‘Call Me Crazy, But…,’ the R&B singer/songwriter sat for an interview with Angie Martinez and DJ Enuff on Hot 97. Looking to dig up some dirt, and clear up any rumors Ang pressed Sevyn about dating, if she’s able to and with who. They spoke about her “It Won’t Stop” video co-star Darell Wright, and how she really feels about singer/actor Tristian “Mack” Wilds, which had Sevyn blushing and admitting he is very attractive.
In addition she spoke about touring with K. Michelle on the ‘Rebellious Soul’ tour, which just ended, the direction behind her EP, and her vision for the hopefully upcoming music video for “Sex on the Ceiling.”

A man of musical genius and class! R. Kelly visited ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ last night to promote his new album ‘Black Panties’ due out December 10.
However, as the world mourns the loss of Nelson Mandela, Kellz gave a heartfelt tribute with a performance of “Soldiers Heart,” which he wrote and performed for Mandela in his living room in 2010.
“I’m just blessed to know that I walked in his presence,” said Robert. “He was a spirit walking and being around him inspired me to even go further in my life, in my walk, and my career. He’s just an incredible power.”
In addition to his tribute, he reenacted a press conference while performing his Black Panties cut “Shut Up” and closed out the show with a stirring rendition of “When A Woman Loves.”
During the interview, he shared his preference for panties or thongs (“If you wear thongs, you might as well have your ass just out”), broke down his lyrics about Oreos and black holes, and revealed which artists he’s listening to.
Plus, he improvised by serenading two ladies using the words Frosted Flakes, relish, and ketchup.
