Under the overwhelming pressure from her fans, Lady Gaga has finally spoken out and denounced R. Kelly.

"Do What You Want With My Body" with R. Kelly on "Artpop" was part of the reason why I panned it.

I'm confused how #LadyGaga can be so vocal in her support of #MeToo yet remain silent about R. Kelly who by the time she collaborated with him was a well known pedophile and sexual predator. #SurvivingRKelly

The Pop star and actress, who says she too is a victim of sexual assault, posted a lengthy message on her Twitter page denouncing the Pied Piper.
Gaga made it very clear that she stands behind the women 1000% and she issued an apology for collaborating with R. Kelly on her single, “Do What U Want.”
You may remember their pearl-clutching performance of the song on “Saturday Night Live” years ago.
Lady Gaga said she is yanking the song off of all streaming platforms and will never work with R. Kelly again.
