VMA Observations #2 (R Kelly=genius)

Used to be the craziest thing R Kelly'd ever done was peeing on a 14 year old on video. Not true these days as R Kelly has created the great musical theater piece of our time "Trapped In The Closet." At the VMAs last night he performed a new chapter "Playing" all the parts himself. It looked like a Washington Square Park performance artist had gotten loose on the stage. Needless to say the poorly lip synched performance was the best piece of television to emerge from the show (perhaps ever). It was remarkable to watch as he argued with himself ("Rufus... Chris... Rufus... Chris") and he even got very Sean Penn and through a chair. Someone get this man to Broadway! Below is R Kelly as large prosthetic statue.

that makes me wish I had cable EVEN MORE. If R kelly had a one man show on Broadway, nothing would stop me from seeing it. Not wild horses, not natural disaster, not even death.
