Now “Trapped in the Closet,” the tale of infidelity, violence and violent infidelity by R. Kelly, is getting, even more complex. Mr. Kelly has created 10 more episodes of his cult video series, which he and a cast lip-sync as he narrates the story to a lilting, and unchanging, beat, punctuated by the sound of water dripping. Since Monday, the IFC cable channel’s Web site, IFC.com, has been streaming one new chapter daily. Given the plot twists — Episode 9: “Not only is there a man in this cabinet/But the man is a midget! (Midget! Midget! Midget!)” — fan anticipation is almost absurdly high. Private viewing parties, tribute performances and singalong screenings are scheduled for around the country, celebrating the first hip
hopera/altcomedy/independent video crossover hit.
