Christina Aguilera Talks Herself In Circles To Defend Kind Of Working With R. Kelly

Predators and sexual assailants in the entertainment industry are in big trouble. Unless their songs are damn bops. Then they can slide until the details of their alleged teen sex cult and impregnating of fifteen-year-old Aaliyah become headline news. Which leads us, of course, to John C. Reilly. JK R. Kelly.

Jokes about Kelly pissing on babies or whatever the hell has gone on in his bedroom over the years have circulated for at least a decade. But he remained popular. And the reason, if you ask me, is simply that people still liked his music. It’s convenient to haul Bill Cosby to the rapist landfill after we’ve squeezed him for all the entertainment value he’s worth. But where were we when his victims first spoke out? Watching The Cosby Show with the volume loud enough to drown out the tears. Now that Kelly if fifty-two-years-old and not wowing us with his music, his time has come.

In 2013 – long after anyone with access to a crazy thing called the Internet knew R. Kelly was a pedophile – Lady Gaga recorded Do What U Want with the rapper for her Artpop abortion. She recently apologized for the colab, and in dramatic fashion, Do What U Want has been pulled from streaming services like Apple Music. Bummer for the zero people who streamed to that song.

Goddamn we still have to get to Christina Aguilera. In 2013 she performed Do What U Want with Lady Gaga on The Voice, and recently defended her choice to do so by stating:

This is a reminder of women sticking together— and not letting a man take ownership of a great song/ moment… And if anything the message of this song remains that although you may have had my body, you will never have my heart, my voice my life or my mind.

Being a survivor of past predators myself, these lines spoke to me, which is why I did the song. I embrace all survivors of sexual and domestic violence and abuse holding a special place in my heart, and you @ladygaga, for doing the right thing!

The woman is talking herself in fucking circles. A song (kind of about rape) sang by a rapist empowers rape victims? In 2013, Christina knew that she was performing a song associated with a rapist. R. Kelly fucked fifteen-year-old Aaliyah. And now she’s dead CHRISTINA. And the “lines spoke to” her? Here’s an actual lyric from Do What U Want:

So do what you want, what you want with my body
Do what you want, don’t stop, let’s party

It’s like Rain Man coming on to a hooker. There’s nothing profound here. Except Christina’s level of bullshitery.
