Lady Gaga has joined a growing list of celebrities speaking out against the embattled Kelly following the broadcast of the Lifetime docu-series, “Surviving R. Kelly.”


Back in 2013, long before the first set of sexual abuse allegations was leveled against Kelly, Gaga collaborated with him on the song controversially titled: “Do What U Want (With My Body)”




Now, after watching the interviews of numerous women detailing allegations of Kelly’s sexual and physical abuse against women and underage girls, Gaga took to her Instagram stories with a heartfelt explanation.

“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,” the “Just Dance” singer began in her lengthy note. “What I am hearing about the allegations against R Kelly is absolutely horrifying and indefensible.”


The 32-year-old then explained her frame of mind during the time they recorded the duet:

“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.”


Gaga emphasized her intention to continue supporting women and everyone else who is a victim of sexual assault.

“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,” said the “A Star Is Born” actress before announcing what she plans to do about the song:

“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.”

Before Gaga’s statement, other celebrities like Chance the Rapper, Meek Mill, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Kerry Washington, and John Legend (one of the few stars that agreed to feature in the explosive documentary) have also condemned the R&B singer and distanced themselves from him.


Meanwhile, Kelly has reportedly denied any claims against him and even appeared to make light of the situation when he showed up for an unscheduled performance at a Chicago nightclub on Wednesday.

The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer is said to have announced at some point:

"It's my [expletive] birthday and I don't give an [expletive] what's going on."
