Ed Genson.

Ed Genson, one of the attorneys representing R. Kelly, provided one of the most memorable moments in the trial when he boomed "I'm not your sweetie!" at Stephanie "Sparkle" Edwards.

This afternoon he provided another. Objecting to a copy of Kelly's album, "R." being admitted into evidence for the jury to peruse, Genson told Judge Gaughan that the sexually explicit lyrics in the liner notes could prejudice the jury against Kelly.

Asked by Gaughan precisely what lyrics he objected to the jury seeing, Genson then read the lyrics from one song on the album at length. Genson's soft voice could not be fully heard from the press benches, but his performance was enough to reduce prosecutor Shauna Boliker and everyone else within earshot to fits of giggles.

As Genson recited the lyrics, Kelly covered his face.

Gaughan decided that the jury can have the CD, but the lyrics will be blacked out.
