Lady Gaga regrets having worked with R. Kelly
Popdiva Lady Gaga publicly apologized for collaborating with R. Kelly on a song in 2013, describing as "horrible and irresponsible" the facts that the American singer is accused of, showing her support for the alleged victims.
Great 1990's R&B figure, author of the well-known "I think I can fly", R. Kelly has made headlines since last week, an overwhelming documentary was broadcast about him.
In the six-hour documentary film "Surviving R. Kelly" (Surviving R. Kelly), which was broadcast on the Lifetime cable channel, several women accuse the music of having sex with three teenagers under the age of 16 when he was already of legal age
Other testimonies claim that Robert Sylvester Kelly, his real name, interacted with women he turned into sexual slaves, and today is completely isolated from his relatives.
Lady Gaga talked about the subject because in 2013 she registered a piece with R. Kelly whose content, and the title ("Do what you want with my body", do what you want with my body), is evocative in light of the charges directed to R&B singer.
"As a victim of sexual abuse, I made this play and this video in a dark moment of my life," Lady Gaga explained in a message sent Wednesday night on her Twitter account.
"I intended to create something extremely provocative and challenging," she added, "because I was angry and I hadn't understood the trauma I had experienced in my life."
Seeing the title and content of the song, "It is clear to what extent my thoughts were disturbed," wrote Lady Gaga, who previously showed that she was raped at the age of 19 by a music producer who never gave her identity.
"I can't go back, but I can continue to support women, men and people of all sexual identity, from all ethnic backgrounds that are victims of sexual assault," the star continued.
Lady Gaga said she wanted to eliminate the song from all online music platforms and that she would not work with R. Kelly again.
"Sorry, both for my lack of judgment when I was young, and for not having spoken before," he concluded.
