Apparently a lot of people have never gotten over R. Kelly's musical...opera, spectacle, odyssey, epic...whatever you want to call it. I call "Trapped in the Closet" pretty prog rock, what with all the characters, themes, emotions and storyline involved. It's kinda almost like King Crimson did R&B, but not really. There's no doubting R. Kelly's "masterpiece" is grandiose as fuck, and you can be part of it at the Trapped in the Closet Sing-Along taking place at the Mezzanine this weekend. Here's your chance to belt out, "Oh my God, a rubber, rubber, rubber!" in public without humiliating yourself. And here's to the first official R. Kelly post without a piss joke! Hurray! -- ASD Staff Report
