Lady Gaga Regrets Collaborating With R. Kelly

Lady Gaga and R. Kelly

Lady Gaga regrets ever working with R. Kelly now that his history of sexual assault and abuse has been laid bare in the new Lifetime docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, and so she issued an apology and explanation for her mistake.

The two collaborated on her 2013 hit “Do What U Want (With My Body),” even after he was on trial for child porn charges just a few years prior. She can’t say she didn’t know!

“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,” she said on her Instagram stories.

Mother Monster’s own history of sexual abuse clouded her decision-making.

“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 called ‘Do What U Want (With My Body)’, I think it’s clear how explicitly twisted my thinking was at the time,” she continued.

“If I could go back and have a talk with my younger self I’d tell her to go through the therapy I have since then, so that I could understand the confused post-traumatic state that I was in — or if therapy was not available to me or anyone in my situation — to seek help, and speak as openly and honestly as possible about what we’ve been through. I can’t go back, but I can go forward and continue to support women, men and people of all sexual identities, and of all races, who are victims of sexual assault,” she added.

The songstress has pledged to wipe their hit tune off streaming services as a way to right her wrongs.

“I have demonstrated stance on this issue and others many times throughout my career. I share this not to make excuses for myself, but to explain. Til it happens to you, you don’t know how it feels. But I do know how I feel now. I intend to remove the song off of iTunes and other streaming platforms and will not be working with him again. I’m sorry, both for my poor judgement when I was young, and for not speaking out sooner. I love you,” she concluded.

Let’s not forget that R. Kelly is the real villain here!
