R Kelly Sees Bridget The Midget’s Big Man

R KELLY is Trapped in the closet:

Today’s DVD release for the second volume of R Kelly’s Trapped in the Closet has been billed – admittedly by R Kelly himself – as “the year’s biggest pop culture event”. That’s a bold claim, but then the success of Kelly’s baffling self-styled “hip-hopera” seems to have spiralled in a way that not even its creator, a man not given to modesty, could have predicted.

It began in 2005 as a peculiar footnote amid the R&B singer’s torrential output, a series of songs forming a “musical soap opera” that he likened to Desperate Housewives. Each of its 12 “episodes” used precisely the same backing music, but it was difficult to pay attention to anything other than the wildly convoluted plot, which has so far involved an outbreak of mass cuckoldry, a shooting, the outing of a gay pastor and a dwarf stripper called Big Man.
