The Faults in Our Stars

No one walking this earth surface is perfect. Everyone is flawed, one way or the other. I think our imperfections make us human. Also, accepting your imperfections and building on your strengths makes you stronger. All achievers and stars have one fault or the other. Today, I want to take time and write about some of the faults in some of the biggest superstars of our time.

#R.Kelly is arguable the biggest R&B singer of our time, but his flaw is that he likes little girls. I don't want to use the word pedophile to describe, but that is close to what he is. In 1994, when he was 27 and Aaliyah was just 15 years old, he had a strong intimate relationship with her. They were even married at a point, but Aaliyah's parents got the the marriage annulled on the grounds that Aaliyah was not yet an adult at the time.

In later years, around the early 2000s, R.Kelly was charged to court for having sex with a 14 year old girl. There was a video evidence to this charge, but Kelly got off the case cos the video was blurry, and his face wasn't clear.

#Michael Jackson was not only the king of pop, but many consider him the greatest musician that ever lived. But ofcos, he is not without his own flaws. Similar to R.Kelly, he liked minors, but he didn't stick to one gender; he liked boys and girls. Hmm!

A few hours ago (I just found out as I was writing this article), Michael's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray revealed to the world that M.J wanted to marry an 11-year-old British actress at some point. He said more details on this would be found in a tell-all book about Michael Jackson he is working on. We don't know how true this is since Michael Jackson is dead, but he said Michael gave him the blessings to write the book before he died.

That is by the way, in the 90s and 2000s, a lot of young teenage boys were popping up, left, right, and center, with sexual assault allegations against Michael Jackson. In 1993, the police raided his home and found books and photographs in his bedroom of young boys with little or no clothing on. M.J was also addicted to prescription drugs, which ended up killing him in 2009.

#Woody Allen is one of my best Hollywood filmmakers. His movies are a perfect blend of humor, mystery, and romance- that's exactly what my writing entails. As much of a creative genius he is, the little man also has his flaws. Allen's baby mama/long time girlfriend (Farrow) once accused him of sexually abusing their daughter in 1992.

A few years after Farrow and Allen split, he married Farrow's adopted daughter (Soon-Yi). That is, he married a girl that he had played father figure to for many years.

#Legendary comedian/actor, Bill Cosby was seen as a saint and PERFECT ROLE MODEL to black men in America till his faults was exposed to the word recently. More than 4 dozen women have come out to accuse Cosby of rapping them back when they were in their teens and early twenties. They all claimed his M.O was to slip a date-rape drug (Quaaludes) in their drink, and have sex with them while they were unconscious.

#Fela Kuti is still the biggest musical export out of Nigeria, but we all know he had his faults. He was a cannabis abuser, womanizer...polygamy is an understatement when considering what Fela practiced. But nobody holy pass. Baba 70 is and will remain a musical legend for many years to come.

#Danielle Steel is currently the best selling author alive. Over 800 million of her books have been sold worldwide in the last 4 decades. She is a great writer, but definitely not great with marriages. She has been married and divorced a total of 5 times.
