I'm opening the closet, now I'm opening the closet

Awesome, awesome, awesome:

R. Kelly is to issue 10 new instalments of his cult video series "Trapped In The Closet."

The original "hip-hopera" became a huge hit two years ago, especially in the U.S. where the DVD sold almost 250,000 copies.

Following the story of a man named Sylvester (Kelly), the drama featured 12 cliffhanger episodes with bizarre plot twists based around used condoms, midgets, and bed-hopping.

The 10 new episodes will be released on DVD on August 21.

According to, these will find Kelly portraying an old man named Randolph, complete with a pot-belly and a fake white beard that nearly falls off mid-scene, as well as a preacher in a grey Jheri-curl wig and garish orange suit.

In one of the final chapters, Kelly's Sylvester character talks business with a Sopranos-esque mobster who is eating a giant plate of spaghetti.

I am already planning a viewing party. What beverage do you think is most appropriate? I am thinking coke and rum, in tribute to another R Kelly masterpiece. It can't be a forty, because, see, R Kelly is too classy for that.
