Lady Gaga is pretty determined never to work with R.Kelly again. She even apologized for her past collaboration with R. Kelly when sexual accusations re-sparked against this ‘A Star is Born’ celebrity.
Lady Gaga Reportedly Apologizes For Her Collaboration With R.Kelly
The six Grammy award winner actively responded to her social media fans on Wednesday night. There, she clearly declared her support for Kelly’s alleged victims. Moreover, the ‘Shallow’ singer explained why she collaborated with Kelly on the 2013 “Do What U Want (With My Body)” track.
The renowned singer, in fact, tweeted in these words,
“I stand behind these women 1000%, believe them, know they are suffering and in pain, and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken seriously. What I am hearing about the allegations against R. Kelly is absolutely horrifying and indefensible,”
“Do What U Want (With My Body)” The Eristic Duet By Lady Gaga and R Kelly
“Do What U Want (With My Body)” is a very controversial duet. The song faced extreme criticism for its lyrics. Indeed, Lady Gaga and R Kelly performed the song together on “Saturday Night Live” and at the American Music Awards.
Gaga, in fact, is all set to remove the song from iTunes and other streaming services and is resolute not to work with Kelly again.
“I’m sorry, both for my poor judgment when I was young, and for not speaking out sooner,” she apologized.
Gaga who herself was a victim of sexual assault wanted to overcome the trauma.
“As a victim of sexual assault myself, I made both the song and video at a dark time in my life, my intention was to create something extremely defiant and provocative because I was angry and still hadn’t processed the trauma that had occurred in my own life. The song is ‘Do What U Want (With My Body)’, I think it’s clear how explicitly twisted my thinking was at the time,”
Moreover, the ‘Muppets most wanted’ fame regrets not to get any therapy for coming out of the unrecognizable trauma in her tender age.
The Noxious Allegations On R.Kelly
Recently, one of the most valid resources has aired the docuseries ‘Surviving R. Kelly’. Right after the first episode (telecasted on Jan 3), this six-part series broke records. The documentary is certainly encircling Kelly’s decades-long allegations of sexual and physical abuse against women and young girls.
Kelly was a subject to accusation of making a sex-clip( 27-minute) with an underage girl in 2002. The girl, however, declined to identify him. Therefore the jury declared kelly as not guilty on all 14 accounts.
Furthermore, the documentary series also featured interviews with female victims —including Andrea Kelly and Kitti Jones—who straightforwardly target Kelly for sexual abuse.
‘Surviving R. Kelly’ producer Dream Hampton hinted that Lady Gaga was also invited to participate in the series.
“It was incredibly difficult to get people who had collaborated (artistically) with Kelly to come forward. We asked Lady Gaga. We asked Erykah Badu. Celine Dion. Jay-Z. We asked Dave Chappelle. (They’re) people who have been critical of him.”
