Ke$ha Debuts at #1 With Hit Single ‘We R Who We R’
Producer’s Attorney Says Singer Is Seeking ‘Unwarranted Sympathy’
While the dropping or outright dismissal of most of her civil and sexual assault complaints against producer Dr. Luke could be looked at as setbacks, fans of Kesha can rejoice at news the ‘Warrior’ singer is still fighting to have her new music heard, she reveals in a new interview with New York Times.
The NYT piece, her first since all of her legal drama began, sees the singer/songwriter pour fresh details on music she’s been working on, including over 20 songs she turned in to Sony for review over summer 2016. However, the issues – as the NYT article asserts – are the following:
- In having to remain ‘reasonably consistent in concept and style to the artistic concept and style’ of her original recordings (or the persona already built for her), if the songs submitted do not fall in line with the prescribed she may not be able to release them
- She is funding her small touring and recording efforts out of pocket, which is increasingly difficult given her limited income and inability to create and promote new music. The money she is making is funding her legal efforts.
- Sony has permitted her to work with other producers (though her camp vehemently denies this)
Shortly after the story hit the presses, Luke’s lawyer offered a fiery clapback that not only branded the singer’s claims as “inaccurate”, but also suggested the NYT piece was simply another means to “mislead the public” and “gain unwarranted sympathy.” More details inside:
The Pop princess Kesha was disconcerted when a judge ruled that she could not record music outside and away from Sony Music and her alleged rapist Dr. Luke.
Little did she know that the judge was none other than the wife of a lawyer whose firm represented the label.
Today, the ‘Backstabber’ singer has asked for that judge to step down.

Kesha will perform at the Billboard Music Awards.
Full story below…
Kaput! Ke$ha‘s performance at this Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards has been axed – it has been confirmed.
Dr. Luke‘s label, to who she is still signed (despite a very public legal battle) has opposed the showing – which was reportedly set to be a controversial reply to her current drama.
Latest Courtroom Smackdown Comes Months After First Ruling
Ke$ha was dealt a devastating blow in a New York courtroom moments ago.
The Pop star’s entire case against Dr. Luke and Sony Music has been thrown out after a judge disagreed with her claims that she is a “slave” to the hitmaker.
Prior to now, the singer tried to get an emergency order giving her the right to get out of her Sony contract on grounds Dr. Luke allegedly raped her and that the label was tormenting her by holding her to the deal.
As widely reported, that argument was rejected in February.
Find out what the other components of the fuller case were and why it was not upheld below…
Yesterday a Sony insider revealed the label was sharpening its knives to cut ties with Dr. Luke.
Today, the producer’s reps have said that this is untrue.
Dr. Luke is reportedly being booted from the Sony Music family.

Dr. Luke may be hard at wok to take down Kesha‘s claims that he abused her, but that hasn’t stopped him from finding the time to take Kelly Clarkson on.
The ‘American Idol’ recently stepped out to claim he was part of a blackmail crafted to force her to work with him after she won the series.
How he responded to the allegation?
