Kiely Williams Claims The Rapetastic “Spectacular” Is A Public Service Announcement

[youtube:v=J96ujGstSUw]

Kiely Williams, whose new song "Spectacular" has her extolling the erotic benefits of guys having totally spectacular "sex" with her while she is passed out, has added a disclaimer to the video on YouTube. In the note, Williams explains that she was simply playing a role in order to raise awareness of a serious issue affecting young women today: Having unprotected sex. Wait, what about the rape part??

Here's Williams' full statement; thanks to commenter sybil for the tip:

Williams writes:

ATTENTION: I am an actress and performer. I have been so since my first role in a television pilot at five years old. I played a character when I was a Cheetah Girl. I am playing a character in the music video for the song Spectacular, as I did in the Cheetah Girl movies.

The fact is, that sometimes women get intoxicated and have unprotected sex. My video puts this issue front and center. It is absurd to infer or suggest that I am condoning this behavior. Are Lady Gaga and Beyonce advocating murder with the Telephone video? Of, course not. Was Rihanna encouraging suicide with Russian Roulette? No. Was Madonna suggesting that young unmarried girls get pregnant with Papa Dont Preach? I dont think so. Is Academy Award winner Monique a proponent of incest because of her portrayal of Mary in the movie Precious. Clearly, the answer is no.

I wrote Spectacular and made the video to bring attention to a serious womens health and safety issue. Dont shoot the messenger.

Actually, the fact is that sometimes women get intoxicated and men rape women. And now, Williams has responded to accusations that she has glorifying rape by . . . clarifying that she just wants an intoxicated young woman to make sure her rapist uses a rubber when he penetrates her while she's unconscious?

    She's a creep. Her other single is called "Open My Legs, Tell Me What Ya Think." Willies.

    "Katie" is making an false statement. As her other single is NOT titled "Open My Legs, Tell Me What Ya Think." Am I Much of a fan of Kiely? I am not, but I know that is false.

    WCP in general & Katie should get their facts correct.

    hey, "simplyme"- let me introduce you to Google. And this snippet off of it: She filmed the music video for her first single Open My Legs, Tell Me What Ya Think in New York City in November 2008.

    WILL SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME HOW SHE IS RAISING AWARENESS WHEN ALL I HEAR IS "THE SEX IS SPECTACULAR" AND SEE HER POPPIN BOOTY ALL OVER THE PLACE?

    SHE HAS LOST HER DAMN MIND! WHO EVER ADVISED HER TO PUT THIS SHIT OUT SHOULD BE FIRED AND LOCKED UP!

  • Katie

    @tigerflight: haha...thanks. SimplyMe got REAL pissed about that one.

    ha ha, that attempt at damage control is so pathetic. The only person convinced of that whole "this is really really a public announcement, not a desperate attempt for people to notice me before i slip into obscurity! Srsly everyone! AYE am a serious ACTREESS!"

    dammit, silly me always thought that "papa don't preach" was about teenage pregnancy..I wonder what this woman thinks the song is about??

  • Eo

    She is singing about consensual sex, and consensual sex is not rape.

  • snobographer

    I'd like to know how something you don't even remember can be described as spectacular.

  • snobographer

    Eo - black-out drunk = no consent.

  • Eo

    "Eo – black-out drunk = no consent".

    She is singing about going to a bar, getting drunk and chosing to have sex. To say thats rape is spitting on genuine victims while empowering a hate groups that capitalise on, politicise and propagandise the crime of rape.

  • snobographer

    At no point does she say a thing about "choosing," actually.
