YOU'D HAVE TO SAY: THAT'S A BETTER PACKAGE: If we were R Kelly, we'd be a little worried at the evidence that the tide of popular support seems to no longer be with him. Jay-Z has picked up the pace on the tour they were sharing, replacing Kelly with P Diddy. And Mary J Blige. Also Snoop Dogg, Pharell Williams, Slick Rick and Professor Griff. And Foxy Brown, Kayne West, Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes. The re-badged 'Jay-Z and Friends' jaunt now looks about six thousand times more appealing than ever it did when Kelly was stinking up the place. Not that we'd condone the use of pepper spray to get an improved bill on a tour. That would be wrong.
