R. Kelly is set to make a televised appearance on Jimmy Kimmy Live this week.
Supporting his forthcoming album “Untitled” and the climbing single “Number One,” Kelly is expected to take the stage with a special performance.
“Number One,” Kelly’s lead single from “Untitled” follows the singer/songwriter/producer’s recent work on Whitney Houston’s new album “I Look To You”.
Assisting Houston on the title track, Kelly says “I told her to go get clean and refreshed, and sing my song like ‘I’ll Will Always Love You,’ and we gonna be alright.”
Kelly appears on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday, September 3.
“Untitled” hit stores and digital retailers October 13.
Michael Jackson’s father says he was in the dark about his son’s drug use and had never even heard of the powerful anesthetic propofol until it was implicated in his son’s death.
“I’m not angry. I’m mad,” Joe Jackson said in an interview that aired Monday on NBC’s “Today” show. “I didn’t know all this was going on. That’s what I’m mad about.”
The Los Angeles County coroner’s office announced Friday that Michael’s death on June 25 was a homicide caused mainly by propofol and another sedative, and ruled propofol with other anti-anxiety drugs was a contributing factor in his death. Jackson was using propofol to help him sleep, a practice medical experts consider extremely dangerous.
Joe Jackson said the coroner’s announcement “tells me there was foul play done. That’s what it tells me. And more to be investigated to see what is behind all of this stuff, not just Dr. Conrad Murray.”
Murray, Jackson’s personal physician, hasn’t been charged with any crime but he is the target of what police term a manslaughter investigation.
“Someone should pay. Not just someone but all of them should pay that’s involved,” Jackson said.

In his interview with CNN’s Larry King, Chris Brown said that he’s ashamed of what happened in the early-morning hours of February 8, when he assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna.
In the latest clip released from the interview that took place last week and is scheduled to air Wednesday night (September 2), King asks Brown how he feels about the reports documenting the attack.
“When you look at this, do you feel like you’re looking at someone else?” King asks Brown, who is dressed in a light-blue sweater, white oxford and blue bowtie for his first televised interview since the assault.
“Yeah, from the outside looking in, what you see on TV, when they sayin’ this, when they sayin’ that,” replies Brown, who released a statement on Monday saying that the first excerpt of the interview, in which Brown says he doesn’t remember the incident, was taken out of context.
“You punched her a number of times; you threatened to beat the blank out of her,” King continues. “[You] also said you were gonna kill her. You bit her on the ear and finger.”
Brown, his eyes cast down, mumbles “yeah” to King’s comments but offers no further explanation of his actions.
“You don’t appear like a violent person,” King says. “In fact, you appear rather calm, rather nice. So, what happened to you, do you think?”
Brown, who has never before publicly discussed the events of that night other than in his video apology, shakes his head and says, “I guess that night is just one of those nights I wish I could just take back, and I really regret and I feel totally ashamed of what I did.”
The singer pleaded guilty to felony assault on June 22 in a deal that helped him avoid up to five years in jail, but includes five years of probation, six months of community labor service and an order to keep away from Rihanna for five years.
