At the premiere of Trapped in the Closet: The Next Installment, R. Kelly was almost as freaked out by the vacuous nature of his ongoing fictional drama as the rest of the room. Kells is diving deeper into his characters than Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, but he resurfaced for a second to drop a bomb. Via Pitchfork:
Kells looked like a very dapper contract killer in a black suit, red pocket square, and tan leather gloves. He held a half-smoked cigar between two fingers, which he never put down. He seemed genuinely surprised by the “Trapped” phenomenon, which, he said, simply allows him to let off some steam while making music: “I don’t have a job, so I sit in the studio and think of stupid stuff.” He said he’s recorded audio for another 85 chapters, and that there’s also a Broadway version of the “Trapped” saga in the works. This thing is far from over.
Wait, 85 chapters? This could be the greatest thing in the history of humanity.
