John Legend, Jada Pinkett Smith, Ne-Yo speak out about ‘Surviving R. Kelly’

The “Surviving R. Kelly,” docu-series had most of us shook – including some stars who denounced the “Step in the Name of Love” artist in the show and others doing so now on social media.

Hours before the finale was set to air Sunday, Jada Pinkett Smith took to her Instagram account to say that she doesn’t understand how or why R. Kelly’s music has seen a spike since the release of the six-part series.

USA TODAY has reached out to Spotify to confirm a Blast report that the singer’s streams are up 16 percent since the series began.

“I’m having a really difficult time understanding why,” said Smith in her video. “I think it’s important that I understand why. I really would like for you guys to help me understand what I’m missing.”

Smith also said that she would continue the conversation on her “Red Table Talk” show on Wednesday.
