R. Kelly is back in the headlines after he sat down for an interview with Gayle King marking his first interview since the release of Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly six-part documentary. R. Kelly's time with Gayle saw him in tears while he yelled to get his point across: "Stop it, y'all quit playin'! I didn't do this stuff! This is not me! I'm fighting for my fuckin' life!"

Another part of the disgraced singer's interview saw him speaking out against John Legend (who took part in the documentary) as well as Lady Gaga who has since regretted her 2013 collaboration "Do What U Want" with R. Kelly.

"How do you feel about how people view you in the industry? John Legend has called you a serial rapist, people in the room, some of the top executives were saying he's over, he's done, no one will work with him," Gayle asked Kelly, adding: "Lady Gaga has apologized for working with you. Spotify has pulled you off of its playlists. How does all of this sit with you, how you're viewed now in the industry?"

He replied: "John Legend, Lady Gaga ... The interesting thing about this is the fact, working with Lady Gaga, she's a very great talent and all and it's unfortunate that her intelligence go to such a short level when it comes to that. I have nothing against none of these artists, but I think it's not professional for them to do that."
