R. Kelly has released the next 10 chapters of his epic Trapped In The Closet series, and I just don’t know if I can take it! While the very long song may have started out as a joke or gimic to some, R. Kelly seems to be branding the concept in some very big ways. He debuted the latest installment on the IFC channel and at New York City’s Landmark Sunshine Cinemas recently, and now he’s planning to take it to Broadway!
He said, the idea is “to transform it into a Broadway version, that’s what I’m working on.”
He told Rolling Stone that “I’m just having a lot of fun. I don’t have a job, so I sit in the studio all the time and think of stupid stuff to do. And this is just something stupid I’ve done that’s been successful. I’m having a lot of fun with it.” He also revealed that he has 85 chapters locked away in the studio.
