Pop Life- Dissecting R Kelly

2018 was a year filled with high profile celebrities getting themselves into hot water. From Bill Cosby and Kevin Spacey to Roseanne Barr and Kevin Hart, we certainly had a lot to talk about. And, even though 2019 is still young, it looks like we are in for more of the same.

This week on Pop Life, Joe Lee is joined by Leslie Gray Streeter from the Palm Beach Post to discuss the power of documentary storytelling.  The explosive documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly" demonstrates how the genre can bring new life to an old scandal.  R. Kelly's career has been plagued with rumors of abuse, pedophilia, and predatory behavior toward women. Now, survivors are stepping forward to detail new allegations about his physical, mental, and sexual abuse thanks to the 6 part Lifetime television special produced by Dream Hampton.
