Lady Gaga Apologizes Over “Defiant” and “Provocative” Hit Single “Do What U Want (With My Body)” Featuring R. Kelly After More Sex Scandals

NEW YORK, NY – Lady Gaga wants to pull one of her songs off Apple’s iTunes and other streaming services over embattled music star R. Kelly’s alleged sexual misconduct allegations.

The 32-year-old singer apologized on Twitter Thursday over her collaborative hit with Kelly, “Do What U Want (With My Body),” claiming she created the song during a “dark time” and wanted “something extremely defiant and provocative.”

“I’m sorry, both for my poor judgment when I was young, and for not speaking out sooner,” Gaga wrote.

The move comes in light of Kelly’s alleged involvement with pedophilia and a sex cult revealed in the docu-series, “Surviving R. Kelly,” which aired Jan. 4 on Lifetime.

Several people on Twitter previously called out Gaga for not addressing her duet with Kelly.

“Do What U Want” was on Billboard’s Hot 100 list for 19 weeks and peaked at #13 on Nov. 9, 2013.

Gaga has been outspoken about being sexually assaulted at 19. She also released “Til It Happens To You” in 2015 about rape on college campuses. The singer refers to the song in her statement about Kelly as well.

Kelly’s music was removed from Spotify’s curated playlists as part of a policy on “hateful content” in May 2018. His songs and albums remain on the site, however.

Apple and Spotify did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
