R Kelly recently did an extensive interview with GQ, talking about Aaliyah, the allegedly sexual urination video and more. It's a pretty long interview but, it gets a bit down into the nitty gritty.

How would you describe that?
“Uh, I would describe it as best friends. Deep friends. As far as we both loved music and wanted to be successful. She's a Capricorn, I'm a Capricorn, my momma a Capricorn, her daddy's a Capricorn, you know. It was just so much in common with each other.”

And these are difficult questions but would you say you were in love with her?
“Yes. I would say I loved 'liyah.”

But “in love”?
“Well, there's a lot of ways to be in love with a person. I was in love with my grandfather, you know. But yeah, I would say I was in love with Aaliyah just like I was in love with anybody else. But in a different, friend type of way.”

And she was in love with you?
“I would think so. Absolutely. I would say that.”

As you know, people know that there was a wedding ceremony and you got married.
“Well, because of Aaliyah's passing, as I've always said, out of respect for her mother who's sick and her father who's passed, I will never have that conversation with anyone. Out of respect for Aaliyah, and her mother and father who has asked me not to personally. But I can tell you I loved her, I can tell you she loved me, we was very close. We were, you know, best best best best friends.”

And acting as you, he did a parody of “Ignition (Remix)” called “Piss on You.”

Well, to ask the embarrassing question—to give you a chance to clarify something—and this wouldn't be illegal, but is that something you like as part of sex?
“Absolutely not.”
