Lady Gaga has vowed to never sing with R Kelly again following the release of his #SurvivingRKelly documentary in which he was accused of sexual abuse by many.
She made this known on her Twitter page hours ago, adding that she stands by all the women who have suffered in the hands of R.Kelly.
“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,” Gaga wrote
She further talked about the idea behind the song she made with R.Kelly (Do What U Want With My Body) which according to her was released at a point in her life when she was angry still trying to process a sexual assault trauma she was going through.
“As a victim of sexual assault myself, I made both the song and the 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.”
She ultimately confesses that, “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.” In an attempt to make those steps, she concludes that she plans to remove the collaboration from all streaming services and that she “will not be working with him again.” She added
