Posting on Twitter Wednesday, Gaga wrote she had collaborated with Kelly on “Do What U Want (With My Body)” during a “dark time” in her life as a victim of sexual assault. She said she should have sought therapy or other help instead.

 

 

Gaga said she will not work with Kelly again.

Gaga wrote she’s sorry for her “poor judgment” when she was young and “for not speaking out sooner.”

Lifetime’s “Surviving R. Kelly” series, which aired this month, looks at the singer’s history and allegations that he has sexually abused women and girls. Kelly has denied wrongdoing.

    While you are reflecting on young bad decisions, what up with your over the top stumping for Hilary Clinton. She is NOT a feminist…her husband is a womanizer and rapist, and Hilary stands by him and throws the accusers under the bus. Lady Gaga, you are an incredibly talented young woman, but PLEASE study up when you are going to put your support for people. I cannot imagine you being a victim of sexual abuse supporting a woman who not only shields her husband, but damns his victims. You were very young when much of this came out, but the information is easily available…
