I don't know much about RKelly's artistry but his verse in this song really is great and lifts song for me. I don't like Xtina's version at all. And i love Xtina, but song just feels empty.

The song is a masterpiece 8-)
If it weren't for the Oscars I doubt she'd take down the song. This is just going a bit more extra so this doesn't hurt her chances. But if it wasn't for the R. Kelly doc then this wouldn't had happen at all. Just goes to show how hypocritical she is. It was obvious way back then why she picked him and she filmed that video. Luckily someone smarter in the record company decided to put a stop to the video ever coming out. She was willingly playing into his reputation. There's just no going around that.

Lady Gaga threw him under the bus quicker than she became the devils incarnation, even though she did the duet in recent years , which was like more than 10 years since this news came out.

The actual song with Christina remains on there. This song will always be associated with R Kelly and this controversy but she retains the Xtina version. Fake much????

Can’t stand it starting with Christina’s verse. I hope she won’t get an Oscar.

I find Gaga's excuse laughable (acting like she wasn't aware of those issues with R. Kelly). ARTPOP flopped and if it did wonders for her career, she would not be disowning "Do What U Want" like what she is doing now. She used R. Kelly to promote this provocative urban leaning image. :roll: :roll:

You know why Christina, parts are like that right? :lol:
It's basically just a re-recording of Gaga,s solo version and they gave Christina the unreleased bits

That's bs you blame everything on being a flop or not, if this was a massive hit, she still would have disowned it and you know it

R Kelly's attorney's statement is everything :lol:

“Mr. Kelly appreciates that she recognized his immense talent and collaborated with him to help her career, but finds it regrettable that she is now exploiting this controversy to try and help her in her effort to win an Oscar,” Greenberg shared.
Mariah saved Xmas and Gaga is saving Pop and Hollywood.

Help her career? This almost killed her career back in 2013/2014. I am sure the video would have faced a massive backlash.
