// Will Oldham Interviews R. Kelly
After this apocalyptic meeting of the minds, I suppose anything is possible. In this fascinating cultural artifact fro Interview Magazine, my favorite tender yet eccentric folk singer Will Oldham (aka Bonnie “Prince” Billy) sits down for a chat with singer/producer R. Kelly, who in Oldham’s words, “represents so much of what is both good and important and difficult-bordering-on-ridiculous about R&B.” I’m about halfway through it at this moment, and Oldham seems to be fulfilling his role as interviewer and professional peer without a hint of irony. Welcome to the age of post-cultural-post-everything-ever. I’m having it.
