In a new interview, R. Kelly told Gayle King that while he isn’t mad at stars like John Legend and Lady Gaga for publicly disavowing him after he was accused of sexual abuse, he does think they are being unprofessional.After mentioning Legend, who in January called Kelly a “serial child rapist,” and Lady Gaga, who publicly apologized for recording a song with Kelly, King asked the singer “How does all of this sit with you, how you’re viewed now in the industry?”To this, Kelly called Gaga “a very great talent,” but said that it’s “unfortunate that her intelligence go to such a short level when it comes to that,” presumably meaning her apology.
