Trapped in the Closet

The cinematic event of the year is nearly upon us: starting Monday, a new episode from the chapters 13-22 of R. Kelly's Trapped in the Closet will be posted at every day. Two other dates to watch... Aug. 21: the DVD comes out; Sept. 7: all the episodes (1-22) will air on IFC. When art historians look back on the 21st century, this is what will stand out. I'm being totally serious.


why are u obsessed with this pervert?

Now that's a tautology!

(I doubt I need to make any points here about individual lives vs. the art they create. This is as old as aesthetic theory itself.)

I love the 'oh shits' that pepper 12.5. I can already tell the guy with the beard is going to be AMAZING!

The big question here is this: How much bullshit did IFC have to sling to get R. to think that they were interested in this as a serious artistic endeavor?

Tonight, at 11:20p (est and pst), IFC will broadcast the world premiere of Trapped chapter 13 on the network.

Also, at 10:50 p (est and pst), IFC will air an interview with R Kelly about Trapped and why he was compelled to make it.
