And she added that the reason for the collaboration was that she wanted to make something defiant and provocative.

Furthermore, she says that if she could go back to her younger self, she would seek therapy and speak openly and honestly about her own sexual assault. And that going forward she will keep on supporting all sexual assault victims.

The “Hair, Body, Face” singer then closes off the statement by saying that she will be removing the¬†song from all streaming services and Apple Music.
