Since the release of the docu-series Surviving R Kelly, which portrayed the stories of many women who claim to have been sexually abused by the singer, R Kelly has remained relatively silent. 

However, in his first interview since the allegations were brought against him, he has vehemently denied any wrong doing. 

'Whether they're old rumours, new rumours, future rumours, not true,' he told CBS' Gayle King.

When asked if he ever held women against their will, he replied: 'That's stupid!'

'Use your common sense. Forget the blogs, forget how you feel about me.' 

'Hate me if you want to, love me if you want. But just use your common sense,' he continued.

'How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy past and what I've been through – oh right now I just think I need to be a monster, and hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don't let them eat, and don't let them out.'

The R&B singer, real name Robert Kelly, was tried and acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008.

He has always denied these charges, and made reference to them in the CBS interview: 'For one, I beat my case.'

'When you beat something you beat it. You can't double jeopardy me like that. It's not fair.'

Kelly was indicted last month on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. 

Attorney Michael Avenatti, who is representing several women who are bringing charges against R Kelly, tweeted in response to the interview: 

'R. Kelly does NOT deny sexually assaulting underage girls. In fact, his answer demonstrates his guilt.'

'He fails to understand that it doesn’t matter “how long ago” it happened. And he also has no clue as to how “double jeopardy” works.'

He continues: 'R. Kelly’s tears are out of fear and despair.'

'Because he knows that after over two decades of sexually abusing underage girls, we blew this wide open and have him and his enablers dead to rights.'

There has been no word yet on a trial for the alleged victims.

A 2010 clip of Gordon Ramsay and Sofia Vergara on the Jay Leno show has gone viral this week, purely because of how damn UNCOMFORTABLE it makes everyone feel.

Twitter users were quick to brand the infamous TV chef's behaviour as beyond inappropriate, especially in the #MeToo era where women are taking a stand against treatment such as this.

The interview shows Ramsay, then 52, appearing alongside the Colombian actress in an interview, where he clearly makes her feel incredibly objectified and upset with his sexist remarks and groping.

His comments during the clip aimed at the actress have not been received well, at one stage Vergara is talking to Leno and remarks; “I never scream like that in real life.”

She was presumably referring to the renowned shouts of her Modern Family character, but Ramsay is quick to respond with;“Only in the bedroom.”

Let's remember, this is part of Vergara's JOB. In an employment environment, he repeatedly interrupts her and makes her feel sexualised when she is trying to do her actual job.

He even moves chairs to essentially sit on Vergara without her permission, and he touches her upper thigh and tries to smack her. She tells him; "No, no. No touching!"

She begins speaking in Spanish at the audience, telling them "This man doesn't respect me." Understandably, she is uncomfortable and angry, and Leno did absolutely nothing to intervene.

He asks the actress and model; “Have you had a whole wedge in your mouth at any one time?” She cannot even reply as she is too stunned.

"Sofia Vergara didn’t deserve to be treated like this," one Twitter user wrote, retweeting the footage. "This is very very uncomfortable." Of course, people are MAD as hell, deservedly so.

Jay Leno is equally chauvinistic, asking her how much WEIGHT she gained while away on a trip, which she refuses to answer.

She is sexualised throughout the entire interview, while at work essentially, and is subjected to sexist and racist harassment.

Gordon Ramsay even tells her to change her son Manolo's name,to which she replies stone-faced "Can I what?"

The whole thing is a damn joke. Gordon, you're cancelled. Jay Leno, you're cancelled. Everyone go and smash the patriarchy and lift up Sofia.

Ireland mainly sticks to core subjects, even in transition year when students have the freedom to test various modules.

But something that has never popped up before is fishing on the curriculum.

Yep, transition year students from CBS James Street in Dublin are taking part in a new joint initiative by Inland Fisheries Ireland and eir which involves classroom lessons, fieldwork studies and practical exercises on fly fishing.

Gray Fishes on Yellow Crate

According to The Journal, it aims to teach students about fly fishing with the hopes of making it into to a lifelong hobby for them.

In recent weeks the students enjoyed class trips to Annamoe Trout Fishery in Wicklow and Courtlough Fishery in Balbriggan, where they practiced their rod skills and fished for rainbow trout using the methods that they have been taught in class.

Suzanne Campion, Head of Business Development with Inland Fisheries said: “We hope that the lessons learnt on important issues such as conservation and environmental protection will stay with students through life and that ultimately they will become custodians of our rivers and lakes.

"We also endeavour to get them hooked on fishing for life so it was fantastic to see a huge amount of skill evident in this group.”

Would you have fancied taking on this subject when you were in school?
