5 Bits of Music News You Missed While Eating Stuffing, Losing Consciousness

4. R. Kelly Continues to Make Trapped in the Closet Segments, Will Never Stop

Resembling nothing at this point so much as a sitcom several years past its pop cultural peak, R. Kelly's ridiculous R&B soap opera continues to exist. Ten new chapters of it debuted this Friday on the IFC Channel, and at viewing parties in otherwise reasonable seeming cultural hotspots all over the country, including one at Williamsburg's new Videology screening room. The continuing "story" (in which the actual narrative details don't matter in the most emphatic way possible) involves sex-twists that make no sense, harmonies that are better than they have to be, and wigs that were worse than they should be. The full block of new episodes, 23-33, appear to be posted online in full. You can watch them here, though that seems shady and it'll likely get taken down quickly. It's also pretty dumb and kind of a waste of time. But, you know, we're not the boss of you.
