Lady Gaga is hurt and disgusted by what she has learned about R. Kelly and is using her power to speak up and out for his victims and survivors.

Full story below…

Gaga called on the singer to collaborate with her on the song ‘Do What U Want’ and has now revealed that she did so because she was in a dark place in her life.

 

She explained…

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. I have demonstrated my 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 this song off of iTunes and other streaming platforms and will not be working with him [Kelly] again. I’m sorry, both for my poor judgement when I was young, and for not speaking out sooner.

 

Her message arrived as protests kick off outside Kelly’s Chicago lair and after Mathew Knowles revealed how and he and his then-wife Tina Knowles protected a teenage Destiny’s Child from him and his crew of enablers.

    She took her time to say something yet had plenty of opportunities.

    I fear she’s only saying something is due to the pressure of having to say something!

      My thoughts EXACTLY I’ve been written him off my playlists. I didn’t purchase any of his music except someone purchased his greatest hits album back in “2001” 🤦🏽‍♂️

    I don’t doubt she was abused or that she empathises with those who were abused, but the cynic in me says this has been too neatly spun.

    She should indeed have spoken up earlier, but no doubt there are sponsors, endorsement deals and the Vegas residency so her people had to carry out a PR risk assessment of when was best to speak on it. Looks like they waited until the residency launched so they could follow up her admission with lots well placed positive press about her residency to mitigate the negative effects on her brand of what she said.

    What about the haters for Gaga over here? She been abused in the past and has a strong voice against those acts. Every one of us know about the Kesha case and now we can understand why the remix with Xtina, a powerful woman with who she was able to fix up things in between them but also teaching a lesson about how the behave of mysoginist media. I applaude her for all the effort putting in removing a song and making another one to replace it when she wasnt allowed to do the first.

    She should replace it with the version with Xtina that was way better

    Everyone makes mistakes

      Amen! I hope she doesn’t remove the Xtina version on Apple Music.

    • truthteller January 10, 2019

      I’ve always preferred the version with Christina

    She knew exactly what she was doing when she not only recorded the song, but asked him to be on it ANNNND placed it on her album.
    🙄
    In myself JoJo voice, it’s just a little too late!

      @Yo.. – I agree. Based on the Matthew *Knowles write up, if it wasn’t out of contractual obligation she shouldn’t have done it.

    Gaga knew what it was before she recorded the track. It is what it is. That being said, I’m not a fan of the version with Christina.

    This is the song that could have saved her album from Flopping. Why record a song and a video with the King of RnB and not use it to make money as sell albums? Who cares what an artist does in his private life? The music and sales has nothing to do with their private life.

    Many of the same people hating on R. Kelly were conceived when their parents were listening to his music. They should be thanking R. Kelly and not attacking him.

      My thoughts exactly, say what ya will but lets not act like Kelly music did not ONLY birth a generation, but impacted the industry and these rappers and r&b singers flow and sound. Drake, Ty Dolla $, ect are prime examples. Listen to his song ” I Admit ‘ to I Wish from the 00s and Trapped in The Closet HIS INFLUENCE
