Today we spell redemption S-T-E-PHON. You have to give credit where credit is due, and Starbury deserves a good amount of it. He went from balling his eyes out, singing R Kelly’s greatest hits on UStream to being the biggest thing in China since General Tsao.

Congrats Stephon, keep living what you dubbed on twitter - #statuelife.
