Lady Gaga Cuts R. Kelly Track From 'Artpop' Reissue


Lady Gaga has made vinyl and CD versions of her 2013 album Artpop available for preorder – with one particular track missing.

The reissued album, out Nov. 11, does not include “Do What U Want,” her collaboration with R. Kelly.

In January, Gaga had the song removed from streaming platforms in the wake of allegations of sexual assault against Kelly.

In a statement she shared on social media, Gaga said: “I can’t go back, but I can go forward and continue to support women, men, and people of all sexual identities, and of all races, who are victims of sexual assault.”

Gaga also made headlines this week after she cheekily tweeted “What’s fortnight” – misspelling the name of the popular video game Fortnite. (Gaga has previously described herself on Twitter as a “secret gamergirl.”)

Among the thousands of responses she received was this one from pro gamer Ninja: “Call me on the Telephone. I'll give you a Million Reasons to play. You and I.”
