R. Kelly & Irina Shayk Strip Down in V Magazine Music Issue
While striking a few poses with the 28-year-old Russian stunner for the sultry Albert Watson photo shoot, the “Do What U Want” hitmaker chatted about his work with Mother Monster Lady Gaga and his rap opera, “Trapped in the Closet.”
“It’s an honor to be working with greatness,” the 47-year-old R&B crooner declared. “When I say that I say it with all my heart, because she is great on stage and off. She is so talent.”
In regards to his time consuming project, Mr. Kelly stated, “When I first started writing ‘Trapped in the Closet,’ I didn’t know myself what is was.”
He continued, “I had one chapter and I had no hook. It never turned into a song, it was a cliff-hanger and one chapter led to another, and the next thing you know I have all these chapters and now I have a leash.”
“I have 57 more chapters that I haven’t released yet that are going to be released. This thing is forever,” he added.
