Gaga´s apology comes amid renewed attention on allegations of sexual misconduct against Kelly, which were highlighted in a six-hour documentary series about the singer. The music video was shot by fashion photographer Terry Richardson, who has been repeatedly accused of sexually exploiting models over two decades and dropped by brands such as Valentino, Bulgari and Vogue publisher Condé Nast following these allegations.

"I think it's clear how explicitly twisted my thinking was at the time", she added.
