Christina Aguilera is defending Lady Gaga‘s choice to remove her song with R. Kelly, “Do What You Want (With My Body),” from streaming services following the Lifetime docu-series, “Surviving R. Kelly.”
The “Fall In Line” singer spoke about the situation during an appearance on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live” on Thursday.
When a caller asked Aguilera, who also recorded a version of that song with Gaga, what she thought about the singer’s decision, she didn’t hesitate to answer.
“I think she absolutely did the right thing,” Aguilera responded. “I love that she spoke and addressed it and showed her support.”
Talking about the documentary, the songbird said she was “extremely moved” while watching it.
Holding back tears, Aguilera added, “It was very heavy for me. I actually went through a lot of … let’s not really go there.”
She continued, “When you’re in this business, you’re exposed to so many predators and so many things … Watching what happened to Aaliyah and everything you’re exposed to so much at such a young age.”
As The Blast reported, Gaga made her promise a reality and after vowing to remove the song, it was off the first streaming site later that day.
