Public already made up its mind on Kelly, music execs say

As we await the reading of the verdict today, USA Today offers another consideration of R. Kelly's career post-trail, whether found guilty or innocent. The article quotes sources claiming that the verdict has already been rendered in public opinion.

There's also a hilarious, possibly ironic quotation by a source explaining the poor reception of Kelly's latest single, "Hair Braider." It didn't fall flat because of the child porn charges, says this radio exec, it's because "hair braiding isn't relevant anymore. If he wants to strive for the young (18-to-24 audience), he has to understand their tastes and lifestyle."

"This Friday the 13th, turned out to be a good luck day for R&B superstar Robert "R" Kelley, and I am hoping that he truly appreciates the blessing that God granted him through the jury today. And with all the pending cases where there are clear and indentifiable victims, I hope that the States Attorney can focus on those cases versus making a case where the alleged victim never admitted to being a victim. And despite all the conflicting views that have circulated for six years, The State chose to continue to waste our tax dollars with this case. If a person is not going to be able to face their accuser in a case like this then this is a case that should have never come to trial. And with all the rumors that still continue to surface about R. Kelley's alleged attraction to young girls, I hope he understands this blessing he received today and never has himself in this kind of environment again."
