The 9 Most Uncomfortable Metaphors on R. Kelly's 'Black Panties'

#1R. Kelly, Master Lyricist

R. Kelly recently told The Boombox that his favorite sex metaphor he ever wrote is his song "Remote Control" from his 2005 album TP.3 Reloaded. "I started seeing the buttons like control, volume, mute and things like that, and I said, 'Wow. I can make this a song,'" Kellz eloquently told the website.

Sure, "I'll be your remote/ Touch me, turn me on" might be a pretty slick way to suggest getting it on, but R. really takes the icky metaphor game up on a notch on his new album, Black Panties. Hey, at least he's teaching the kids about an important literary device.

Take a look through the most gross-out-inducing lines from Kelly's latest album, and then go take a shower. Black Panties officially drops December 10.
