R. Kelly Trapped In The Closet


rrkelly.jpgBy the time R. Kelly is done with his "Trapped in the Closet" saga, it may have more chapters than "Moby Dick." The videos for parts one through 12 of the dramatic, over-the-top cheating story were released on DVD this week. Kelly says he actually has 22 chapters completed -- "and still going." And he plans to release them all on DVD.

"Other characters are being introduced into the whole situation, and it's just this big whirlwind, a circle of just drama, of things that really do happen on the earth," he said. "It's going to flip people out because some people are going to see themselves in these chapters, and that's what keeps the excitement going -- I think that's what keeps people going -- 'I've got to get the next one!'

"It's not Kelly's only project: He's working on Michael Jackson's all-star charity record to aid victims of Hurricane Katrina, which he called "unbelievable." He says his own hurricane relief album will be released in the next few months.

And Kelly also has recorded a song for the "Hurricane Relief: Come Together Now" project, a double-CD featuring Faith Hill, Norah Jones, B.B. King, Elton John and dozens of others, due to be released Nov. 22.

Kelly faces trial on three-year-old charges of child pornography stemming from allegations he videotaped sexual acts with a teenage girl. The singer has denied the allegations, and no trial date has been set.
