R. Kelly

I've Written 32 NEW Chapters

of 'Trapped In the Closet'

12/21/2011 9:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

R Kelly says he has written 32 new chapters

R. Kelly needs funding -- AND QUICK -- because the singer tells TMZ he's ready to film THIRTY TWO new chapters of his legendary hip-hopera "Trapped in the Closet" ... but he needs financial backing first.

When we last saw "Trapped" ... the year was 2007 and Kelly had released 22 chapters, involving a little person who crapped his pants ... a neighbor with the spatula ... and a pimp with the stuttering problem.

Now, Kelly -- who was leaving an L.A. gym yesterday -- tells us he wants to continue the saga -- "but it costs a lot of money to do ... so we're actually looking for investors."

In the meantime, check out the end of Chapter 7 -- it's the only time we've ever heard anyone sing the word "spatula" ... and it's beautiful.

One of the problems with these popular singers is that they confuse commercial success with talent. Thinking themselves talented, they start acting like they are "artistes" and just embarass themselves.

Perhaps he should approach Eddie Murphy's ex-wife. This seems like the sort of investment she would think was a good idea.

32 new chapters = OVERKILL. Don't do it, I'd much rather hear a new album than get punched in the ear with all the "Oh, who's in the closet/ It's me in the closet/ Well get out of the closet/ Nope, I'm stuck in the closet/ But it's such a small closet/ Are you sure it's a closet".....come on.

It can't be all THAT expensive to shoot some video, can it? And, what - did he spend all his money so now he can't swing some more video?!? I call BS on R Kelly!

Oh, wait - he has no more money because he had to pay pay off lawyers, fines, and the underage bit-of-crumpet...

'Trapped in the closet'? David Archuletta, Will Smith and the Joe Jonas sings at least 3 of the 32 chapters.
