In recent days, fans of Lady Gaga have been reaching out to the singer and asking why she is staying silent about R. Kelly.

The official videos for the 2013 song have been removed from YouTube as well - all except a version of the song in which Gaga dressed as Marilyn Monroe and Kelly dressed as John F. Kennedy during the American Music Awards. The Cook County state attorney's office said at least two women have since come forward alleging inappropriate conduct by Kelly in 2002 at the warehouse and a home on the South Side in the mid-1980s. At the end of the post, Gaga vows to never work with Kelly again, and to remove "Do What U Want" from streaming services.

Surviving R Kelly, which is coming to United Kingdom screens on Tuesday, February 5 on Crime + Investigation, features numerous women alleging that R Kelly engaged in controlling and abusive behaviour (which he denies).

Multiple times in the past, Kelly has been defiant as criticism against him has crested, so such an appearance would not seem out of character.

"I hear an internal knock, meaning somebody was on the bus the whole time.she comes through [the door] butt-naked and he says 'b****, get on your knees'". There are still many celebrities, especially men, who have worked with Kelly in some way who have remained silent or given very shitty responses, and even Omarion from B2K said, in a Tweet, that he's not going to shelve the Kelly-collaborated songs until after the B2K reunion tour, because it would disappoint fans.

"I think it's clear how explicitly twisted my thinking was at the time", she wrote.




In April 2018, a woman told authorities that R. Kelly intentionally gave her a sexually transmitted disease, according to Dallas News.

For about an hour, dozens of women protesters endured freezing temperatures and erupted in cheers of "All the girls, we love you!" and "Black girls matter!" as speakers demanded Kelly be dropped from his record label and collaborators stop working with him.

The groundbreaking thing Gaga has done here isn't in the words of her apology, which ends 'I'm sorry, both for my poor judgement when I was young, and for not speaking out sooner.

"I believe a hundred percent that me and my family are in danger", Timothy Savage said after he reported the alleged threats to police.

Since the Lifetime series's January 3 premiere, a number of celebrities have publicly denounced Kelly, but many noticed that Gaga, who revealed in 2014 that she was a survivor of sexual assault and is a vocal supporter of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, was not among them. "But I do know how I feel now".

Dash further questioned why it took people "so long" to listen to all of the stories out there about R. Kelly when he'd known about them for years.
