Lady Gaga vows to never sing with R Kelly again

R. Kelly and Lady Gaga performing together at the American Music Awards in 2013

Cape Town - American singer Lady Gaga has apologised for working with R Kelly in a statement on her social media channels.

"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".

Lady Gaga added that she is not making excuses for herself, but trying "to explain" her mindset at the time.

She concluded: 'I'm sorry, both for my poor judgment when I was young, and for not speaking out sooner'.

Actress and singer Lady Gaga attends a gala hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Hollywood, Calif., Nov. 18, 2018. It was nearly like I tried to erase it from my brain.

Gaga said she believed the women and found the documentary "absolutely horrifying".

Gaga´s apology comes amid renewed attention on allegations of sexual misconduct against Kelly, which were highlighted in a six-hour documentary series about the singer. In the interview, DeRogatis detailed the allegations against Kelly, describing them as "stomach-churning" and "disgusting".

Celtic Player DM'd PSG Star Asking Him To Come To Scotland
I'm so excited to be here. "We will look to do more business, January is important for us", Rodgers told BBC Scotland . The 20-year-old joined Celtic on a season-long loan last season and during the summer signed permanently at Parkhead.

Something to note is that this song was not only well received, but Jenna Hally Rubinstein wrote a piece for MTV titled "God Bless Terry Richardson For Capturing The Bizarre Sexual Chemistry Between Lady Gaga And R. Kelly".

There had already been an outcry for Gaga, who has been a proponent of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, to speak out against Kelly and those calls increased after Hampton's remarks. The documentary looked at the shocking sexual abuse that R. Kelly endured on young women and how he basically got away with it for years.

He was acquitted of all charges in 2008 and continued to rack up hits and sell out stadiums around the world. Every time someone with the power to not work with R Kelly chooses to work with him, they're effectively vouching for him.

"Any of us who ever ignored the R Kelly stories, or ever believed he was being set up/attacked by the system (as black men often are) were doing so at the detriment of black women and girls", he wrote.

She adds: "You can't have my heart, and you won't use my mind/ But do what you want with my body".

Featuring vocals from R. Kelly, the lyrics include lines such as "Do what you want/what you want with my body", words that were controversial even half a decade ago given the history of allegations made against him. "I'm putting you under, and when you wake up, you're going to be pregnant".
