Over the years, R. Kelly has done a strange job of avoiding questions when it comes to his sex tape scandal, where he allegedly urinated on a minor.

He has also admitted to having been sexually abused during his childhood by a family friend, which he recently spoke out about during a new interview with GQ Magazine. We decided to look back at some other awkward interview moments.
