In case you haven't seen it yet, the new issue of Interview
magazine includes a Q&A with R. Kelly conducted by Will Oldham
, which would've been on my list of things that can make me LOL with joy if I'd even imagined it could happen. Highlights include a story about Kells throwing a huge party at his place where he performed a set as Sam Cooke, an amusing anecdote involving Muhammad Ali using the word "bullshit," and of course the overall wonderfulness of having a guy who created a 22-part comic "opera" interviewed by a guy who recently went on a stealth tour where he and his band played in matching camouflage-fleece onesies. Somebody please tell me this is going to lead to a collabo album.
