R. Kelly prefers not to fly

"I Believe I Can Fly,' the song that catapulted R & B singer R. Kelly to international superstardom, is something he'd rather keep to himself.  

Kelly is a reluctant flyer.

"From the inside, I can fly," says Kelly, but he prefers not to. "I’ve been on planes but I’ve had bad experiences."

For now, the Chicago native is staying closer to the ground and in the recording studio as he prepares to to drop his latest album, 'Buffet,' due out in September.

"I've been through the windmill of life," said Kelly. 

The new album will be a reflection of that.
