In court Kesha argued that if she were to remain in her contract, Sony and Dr Luke would likely refuse to promote her and instead let her flop. The judge dismissed it saying that “a business wouldn’t willingly make itself lose money,” but look! They cancelled her comeback single from being sent to radio (which almost NEVER happens to pop singles, nevermind one which went top 10 on iTunes with no promo!) and then they cancel her Billboard Music Awards performance, where she was going to premiere a new song.
This is ugly, they’re literally forcing her to flop now.
Kesha’s rapist, Dr. Luke proves once again that he’s as evil as Kesha says. What kind of monster controls and manipulates someone like this? She just wants freedom and to do what she loves most. Write music and perform! #FreeKesha
Never. Have I ever. Been more proud to be a Zedd fan as I am in this moment.
What this man just did goes beyond musical interests. It goes beyond his career. It goes beyond your typicial boundaries.
Ever since I first started listening to Zedd, I knew he was a good person. He always had a big heart and adored helping others. He never really put himself first if it meant he could help someone else get to where they needed to be. Caring for others is just what made him happy.
Tonight, Anton not only brought KESHA out on stage to sing his song “True Colours”, but he moved TO THE SIDE OF THE STAGE so she would be up front and he wouldn’t take away from her performance. Not ONLY that, but he allowed her to change the lyrics from “we’ve escaped our capture, yet we have our masters” to “we’ve escaped our capture, and I have no master.”
He let Kesha, a woman who’s been mentally and sexually abused, who was told she’d have no place in music unless she worked with her abuser, have a chance to get back into what she REALLY LOVED. He gave her the thing she missed the most back. I can only IMAGINE how much that meant to her. After all this terror and heartbreak, she finally was able to get back to where she wanted to be – and Anton was more than ready to give up his space, his show, and his time for her to do it.
