Trapped in the Closet

The Guardian reports that alleged perv R Kelly is to release the next segments of his 'Trapped in the Closet' opera-thing next month. I'm not a fan of the guy or his music, but this work, wonderfully parodied in an episode of South Park, surely crosses the border into insane-masterpiece territory.

"I definitely couldn't tell you what's going to happen," says Kelly of parts 13-30 of his twisted soap-on-a-ropera. It's hard to know what else he can mine out of the human condition that he hasn't already touched on in the first half of TITC. Gay pastors, cheating wives, adulterous husbands, jailbird brothers and midget assassins are just some of the characters embroiled in the 35-minute drama. Badly acted and executed, yet utterly gripping, like his charges, this could run and run for years with no sign of conclusion.

Dan - If you think the episodes so far are mental, you should try checking out the commentary on the DVD - not only is it a visual commentary, so you can see the satistfaction on Kel's face as he re-watches his masterpiece (For the nth time, I'm sure) but it also comes over that he really isn't taking the piss. HE'S DEADLY SERIOUS.
