I'm looking forward to a lot of things about 2012: seeing whether or not the world ends and now, possible additional "Trapped In The Closet" installments from hip-hopera genius R. Kelly! For those who might not know (FOR SHAME!), "Trapped In The Closet" is a
22-chapter song about a very involved love triangle. Each chapter is played out word for word by R. Kelly himself in the classic DVD "R. Kelly: Trapped In The Closet Chapters 1-22."
TMZ recently caught up with the "Shut Up" singer, and R. not only let us in on the fact that more "Trapped" episodes are waiting to be put to video, but he also told us about the inspiration behind the first 22 chapters: "Aside from me being silly and not having a job and nothing else to do sitting around the studio, I've always wanted to be a movie director.... and ['Trapped In The Closet'] is pretty much my movie directing seeping out through my music." How this man has not been hired to direct every movie in Hollywood by now is beyond me.
Kelly continued to reveal that additional chapters of "Trapped" are just waiting (in a closet somewhere) to be acted out and recorded: "By the way, I've got 32 more chapters that I'm trying to put out now. It costs a lot of money to do it, you know, so we're actually looking for investors."
ATTENTION INVESTORS: Help this man out! Think about all the good the first 22 chapters of "Trapped In The Closet" has done for the world (read: endless LOLz, hilarious cultural references, friendship litmus tests, etc.). Imagine what another THIRTY-TWO chapters of this masterpiece can do for us all! DONATE NOW!
