In 2013, R. Kelly had been charged, a long time ago, with pissing on 14-year-old girls after paying their parents to bring them to his house. They actually leaked a video of it happening.
On February 3, 2002, a video surfaced allegedly showing Kelly engaging in sex with, and urinating on, an underage girl. The story, which was released by an unknown source, was sent to the Chicago Sun-Times, the newspaper that broke the story on February 8, 2002. This news surfaced as Kelly was to perform at the opening ceremony of the 2002 Winter Olympics. In interviews with WMAQ television of Chicago and MTV News, Kelly said that he was not the man in the video. In June 2002, Kelly was indicted in Chicago on 21 counts of child pornography.
Lady Gaga is my age, so she would have been in high school when this was going on.
Everyone knew about this. Massive, massive story.
And I’m sure – certain – that when she said she was going to work with R. Kelly, someone was like “you know about that pissing thing, right?” – just in case she’d forgotten.
Honestly, the thing that black people say – “no one cared because they were black” – is actually kind of true.
Black-on-black crime is always covered up as a matter of course, both because it is useless to the narrative generally and because it actually damages the narrative that blacks are supposed to be saints.
Lady Gaga has apologized for her 2013 duet with controversial singer R. Kelly and has vowed to remove the song from iTunes and all streaming platforms as a way to support the women who spoke out against the singer in the Lifetime documentary series Surviving R. Kelly.
“I stand behind these women 1000 percent, believe them, know they are suffering and in pain, and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken seriously,” the singer tweeted Wednesday night.
For her 2013 album ARTPOP, Gaga featured a duet with R. Kelly, “Do What U Want (With My Body)”, something she now admits was an example of how “explicitly twisted” her state of mind was at the time.
“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,” she wrote.
They’re all “victims of sexual assault,” aren’t they?
I’ve never heard of a woman who didn’t make that claim.
If it’s actually true – or even if it isn’t, and women just feel that way – then perhaps we need to reinstate the patriarchy so it stops happening?
When women are considered property, there is a reason for men to protect them.
I don’t know if Lady Gaga has actually been sexually assaulted or not. But I know that her reasoning for doing the duet was to purposefully be edgy.
The song appears to have been at least in part a reference to R. Kelly’s sexual behaviors.
The song’s lyrics represent themes of sexual submission, with Gaga telling detractors that her thoughts, dreams, and feelings are her own, no matter what one does with her body. Critics praised the song’s simplicity, production, and commercial appeal. The single cover for “Do What U Want”, a close-up of Gaga’s buttocks in a floral thong, was photographed by Terry Richardson who had also directed the song’s music video.
Terry Richardson is a ratfaced Jew who was lately metooed, but who had also been repeatedly accused of sexual assault back before the metoo age.
Starting in 2001, Richardson has been accused repeatedly of using his influence in the fashion industry to sexually assault or exploit models during photo shoots, including coercing them to engage in sexual acts with him. Models with whom he has worked, including Rie Rasmussen, Jamie Peck, Minerva Portillo, Caron Bernstein, Lindsay Jones, and Charlotte Waters, have accused Richardson of inappropriate sexual behavior and exploitation of young female models.
In 2013, a petition was launched on Change.org, urging brands to stop working with Richardson. It documents many of the allegations against him up to that point and links to numerous examples of hardcore pornography arising from fashion shoots that he had tried to remove from the internet in the wake of controversy. As of June 2018, the petition has over 45,000 signatures.
In 2017, due to numerous allegations of Richardson’s sexual misconduct, many fashion brands and fashion magazines decided to no longer commission his work, including Valentino, Bulgari, and the Condé Nast magazines: Vogue, Glamour, Wired, Vanity Fair, and GQ.
In early January 2018, it was reported that Richardson is under investigation by the NYPD’s Special Victims Squad in relation to multiple sexual assault allegations.
So, maybe I should take back what I said about people not caring about black girls?
Maybe it’s just that no one in the Jewish entertainment industry cared about this shit at all before metoo?
Jews Roman Polanski and Woody Allen sure did have a lot of top-tier people working for them even after they’d been exposed as extreme perverts.
