Will Oldham interviews R. Kelly, and it's AWESOME

Yep, that’s right. Will Oldham, a.k.a. Bonnie “Prince” Billy, interviews R. Kelly for Interview magazine. Here’s the first question and answer:

WILL OLDHAM: Do you watch 30 Rock?

R. KELLY: No. What’s that?

Don’t be fooled though. This interview is amazing. As Drag City says, “The two singers sit together and muse philosophically about playing characters in song, conceptual parties, the influence of theatre on R.’s music, time-travel, the unknowability of the Id, and where it all began.”

My favorite part is when Kelly talks about some “white lady” on a boat who reminded him of the “lady from Titanic.” Check the interview here.
