The pop star, who collaborated with R. Kelly on 2013's "Do What You Want," vowed to have the single scrubbed from iTunes and other streaming services in a statement issued Jan. 9.

As a victim of sexual assault myself, I made both the song and video at a dark time in my life, my intention was to create something extremely defiant and provocative because I was angry and still hadn't processed the trauma that had occurred in my own life... I think it's clear how explicitly twisted my thinking was at the time."
