Dr. Luke Issues Response To Kelly Clarkson “Blackmail” Plot

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.

Click here to read all about it.

How he responded to the allegation?

Read his statement below…

In response to Kelly’s claims Luke asked his spokesman to release an excerpt from Clive Davis‘ ‘The Soundtrack of My Life’ which had this to say about how the feuding pair met:

As Kelly was beginning to work on her second album, a song came in for her to do for the soundtrack of the 2004 film The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, which Whitney Houston had co-produced.

“The song was ‘Breakaway’, written by Avril Lavigne, Bridget Benenate and Matthew Gerrard. At first, Kelly didn’t like it and didn’t want to record it, but eventually she relented, and the song became a Top 10 hit for her.

“As we were gathering material for the album, however, I met with the songwriter-producer Max Martin, who had some songs he had written with his partner Luke Gottwald, better known as Dr Luke, that he wanted to play for me. He told me that because of his extensive work with the likes of Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys, he had somewhat gotten a reputation for softer pop artists, and he wanted these songs to be done by rock artists because he was tired of being typecast.

“The songs were ‘Since U Been Gone’ and ‘Behind These Hazel Eyes’. I heard them, and told him that I really loved them both. Then I told him that I wanted them for Kelly Clarkson. He instantly lost his cool. ‘Are you crazy?’ he said. ‘Didn’t I tell you that I wanted these songs to go to rock artists? That I didn’t want to be typecast? Now you want to give them to an American Idolwinner!’

“The fact is that I wanted Kelly to have those songs for the very reason he had written them. Both songs had a sharp rock edge, but were still capable of being pop hits. They would push Kelly in a promising direction for her, while maintaining and even growing her audience. I had a long relationship with Max dating back to Ace of Base, so I was able to calm him down and try to reason with him. ‘You don’t understand,’ I said. ‘Kelly’s got a great voice, she’s got real potential, and she likes edge. Look, you’ll produce it. You’ll get the right performance. If you don’t get the right performance, I’ll understand if you don’t want to let the songs be used. But you’ve really got to give this a shot. I believe so firmly that this will be great for her. And for you.’ We spent a long time discussing it, and finally, based totally on my relationship with him, he said yes.

“Max and Luke are very strong, hands-on producers in the studio. They are intent on getting perfect vocal performances, and are relentless in that pursuit. It was hard for Kelly, who had come from the high of winning American Idol and then having a double platinum album. You’re young, everybody recognizes you everywhere you go. It’s heady, and all that attention affects all Idol winners.

“But then suddenly you’re in an entirely different world of making records in a studio, and you have to take direction. Kelly didn’t like it. Max and Luke were relentless in getting the right performance of their song. Kelly got her back up, and from her perspective, she had a horrible experience in the studio. She’d never work with them again, she said. Then, after all the work was done, I listened to the performances. They were terrific. I could not have been more thrilled. This was a whole new direction for Kelly, so far away from ‘A Moment Like This’, which defined her first year’s experience.

“Obviously, ‘Miss Independent’ was different as well, but this really was a strong pop-rock departure, and showed real depth and creativity. Everyone loved the end result, and I could just feel the momentum building.

“With the air cleared, I did work on Kelly’s 2009 album All I Ever Wanted. One track I brought in was ‘My Life Would Suck Without You’, written and produced by, lo and behold, Max Martin and Dr Luke.”

 

 

Clarkson is yet to respond to the producer’s insinuation that she is a liar.

Was it because she can’t afford basic food or clean water (much like yourself), and she has to rely on walmart coupons and child support. And Cyrus has slid down the same amount of d*cks as Rihanna, and yet no1 will #PutARingOnIt. KIII no wonder you stan for Cyrus, she’s is just like your h**-ish can’t-keep-a-man mother that abandoned you. #PoorDat

        @Moldy-Vaginosis your fave is a pre-op transexual horse that copies Janet and can’t even sell past 19K after 10 years in the game (whilst Queen Bey manages to sell that much in minutes – E.g. Selftitled). Explain to me why Cyrus is dating a footballer that everyone knows is GAYER than Rupaul. GodT know she ain’t paying him, so what’s the tea FR?

        @Moldy-Asshole You’re dead to me, why don’t you understand that? You don’t exist anymore and you’re not on anyones radar. Notice how you run to every post mentioning me or one of the other hive members that abandoned you. You want to be dragged because you’re a suicidal racially-confused hœ. I told you I didn’t want to help you out, but clearly you need some courage! #PoorDat

      The nerve of that Maid to try to come for Bey, when it’s fave is the spitting image of B Scott in drag.

      • Annalise March 8, 2016

        I CAN’T!!!!LMAO how does anyone who stans for a Janet-Jackson-Knockoff / b-scott looking-ass b*tch have the nerve! She’s ashamed of Cyrus and hates black people which is why she’s conveniently hiding behind Selena Hœmez. She has bi-polar disorder and refuses to take her medication. SMH that welfare check is going to waste!

        KIIIII the irony of @Moldy-Vagiina being suicidal and racist…. oooops looks like we have another @SuicideBlonde phaaag. KII I heard he had a mental breakdown after Bowie passed away #PoorDat

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 8, 2016

        @Annalise
        Where is Suicide blonde btw? Did Molly replace him as the most racist h** on this blog?

      • Annalise March 8, 2016

        I haven’t seen him since the bowie post, I think he had a psychotic breakdown (just like the one Moldy-v4gina is having right now). @Moldy-V4gina is the type of crazy ass psycho b*tch that would harm herself for attention. BOOKMARK ME! I hope her parents look thru her internet history and piece it all together. Some people just can’t handle the dragging smh!

      • Annalise March 8, 2016

        You know what?! I take back the comments about suicide, because that is not something joke about. Molly clearly has a mental disorder and everyone tiptoes around her flipflopping behaviour but I’m NOT THE ONE and when someone comes for me I go all out. @Molly invest in some face-to-face human contact please! you’ve been leaving me weekly comments for a year now so I should really start charging for my services.

  6. Kitty Puurrzz March 8, 2016

    People are quick to point the finger and just believe things. They did the same thing with Bill Cosby who was found NOT GUILTY in the court of law. Let’s wait until ALL the facts come out before we just pin it to Dr.Luke.

  7. MusicLife March 8, 2016

    I don’t like how she is once again voicing her opinion in him because she is speaking to not liking him or his personality. She isn’t saying he tried to make a move on me. She is more so saying I had what I consider a bad studio experience with him, and I didn’t want to work with him to begin with.

    ——
    Well sorry Kelly, your label knows what’s best and has the right to do what they want with their music./product. Not to mention his music got your success, Grammys, recognition, etc. and she has mentioned and realized this. They showed a clip of her being grateful work her Grammy win last week when in Idol!

  8. Meteorite March 8, 2016

    Chile the music industry needs some serious healing -sprinkles holy water-

  9. FC/JC March 8, 2016

    So much T

  10. pon_de March 8, 2016

    This response doesn’t even make sense. First, who believes a Dr. Luke would even have the nerve to dictate anything to a music business legend like Clive Davis. Two, Kelly has always been mad humble about her success. You have literally NEVER seen or heard of her acting “heady” or stuck on herself. This is some bullissssssssssh!

  11. MUSICHEAD March 8, 2016

    All I’m taking away from this is Dr . Luke is a great producer and probably a control freak too which might turn him into a maniac in the studio. Kelly clearly doesn’t have a good ear for music because Breakaway is still her best album to date with SYBG and BTHE among her biggest hits. We still have no proof from Kesha’s claims so I remain neutral.

    • MusicFan103 March 9, 2016

      Smart man/woman. I am with you in the same position. Being a producer who works you hard in the studio doesn’t mean your bad or anything, it means your doing your job. Also, yes, those are Kelly’s biggest hits. Gee I wonder why. Her album she wanted and Clive gave her, My December, BOMBED! Nobody recalls any thing from that failure of an album, her ear is absolutely off when it comes to Pop music/hits. “Never Again” was even meh.

    How are they calling her a liar when they reinforced everything she said… she was force to do a song she didnt want to do by her team and he confirmed that, she said working with him was a nightmare… he confirmed that…. many years later “with the air clear” she sung a song from them but she never worked with them directly so… how was any of that a lie?

  15. HailBeysus March 8, 2016

    @Annalise @Tyler YAAASSS y’all betta drag that Mrs. Man stan like your life depends on it!!!
