Lady Gaga is pulling her 2013 collaboration with R. Kelly “Do What U Want” from iTunes and all streaming services, as fallout from sexual assault allegations brought to forefront by a new Lifetime docu-series "Surviving 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 said on Twitter.
”What I am hearing about the allegations against R Kelly is absolutely horrifying and indefensible," she continued. "As a victim of sexual assault myself, I made both the songs 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.”
