Lady Gaga And Katy Perry Pulled Into Kesha's Legal Battle Against Dr. Luke


Kesha Lady GaGa Katy Perry

Lady GaGa and Katy Perry have seemingly been dragged into the ongoing legal battle between pop star Kesha and producer Dr. Luke stemming from her accusations of sexual assault against him.

A text message dated from April 2016 that Kesha sent to Lady Gaga was added to evidence in a court hearing late last year regarding the status of the ongoing case. A judge gave permission for Dr. Luke to share this message with both Lady Gaga and Katy Perry – although the actual contents of the message have been sealed.

E! News reports that it was presented in a hearing on December 26th in New York City when both parties were working out a process of discovery – meaning the records and documents they will agree to exchange with each other.

Kesha is eager to release new music.

The 'Tik Tok' hitmaker was locked in a court battle with her label Sony and producer Dr. Luke after claims he had sexually assaulted her, and the 29-year-old singer has revealed she has been working on a new track, which she is desperate to unveil to her fans.

Speaking to the New York times about the forthcoming release, she said: ''To this day, I've never released a single that's a true ballad, and I feel like those are the songs that balance out the perception of you, because you can be a fun girl. You can go and have a crazy night out, but you also, as a human being, have vulnerable emotions. You have love.''

The Weeknd Adele Kesha

The 2016 Billboard Music Awards took place yesterday (May 22nd 2016) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with Canadian singer The Weeknd taking home no less than eight gongs for his work over the past year. Adele also won big, though her five accolades were meagre compared to her R&B counterpart.

The WeekndThe Weeknd takes home eight awards

The Weeknd - real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye - landed almost more awards than he could carry. The prizes for Top Hot 100 Artist, Song Sales Artist, Radio Songs Artist, Streaming Songs Artist and Top R&B Artist were all presented to him, as was the Top R&B Song and Streaming Song for his number one platinum single 'The Hills' and the Top R&B Album for his second album 'Beauty Behind the Madness' released last year.

Kesha's Billboards Performance Is Back On, Following Dr. Luke's Approval


Kesha Ben Folds

Kesha’s performance at this weekend’s Billboard Music Awards are back on, following a reversal of the decision taken by Dr. Luke’s record label earlier this week.

On Tuesday (May 17th), the under-fire producer’s record label Kemosabe withdrew permission for Kesha to perform at Sunday night’s Billboard Awards ceremony after it learned that she was planning to use her appearance to reference the ongoing court proceedings between them.

However, a little over a day later, Kesha’s performance is back on after the label obtained assurances that she would not do so.

Kesha Dr Luke

Singer Kesha has spoken out after her performance at this year’s Billboard Music Awards was cancelled when Dr Luke’s record label Kemosabe Records withdrew their support. Kesha was due to perform a cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘It Ain’t Me Babe’ at the ceremony on May 22nd, but it had been previously reported that the performance would include ‘direct references to her ongoing legal battle with Dr Luke’.

KeshaKesha will no longer be performing at the Billboard Music Awards.

On Instagram Kesha wrote: "I was very excited to perform a tribute to Bob Dylan by singing a cover of "It ain't me, babe" at the Billboard awards this year. I'm very sad and sorry to say I won't be allowed to do this.”

Kesha Seeks To Lift Halt On Dr. Luke Sex Abuse Claims


Kesha

Things are getting a little complicated in the legal proceedings between Kesha and Dr. Luke, because now she's planning to go full steam ahead with claims she made against Luke in Los Angeles, alleging that he subjected her to physical, emotional and sexual assault. The case had originally been put on hold, pending the outcome of her New York dispute which, sadly, saw her remaining chained to her contract with Kemosabe Records.

Unfortunately, the judge has decided to keep the case on hold for now, despite Kesha's attorneys claiming that they have made significant amendments to the original claim. This heartbreaking decision comes just a day after Kesha posted a positive message to her Instagram followers.

Kesha Zedd

We're so glad we didn't have to wait too long for this. Zedd and Kesha have just unveiled the latter's first single in three years; a remix of the DJ's song 'True Colors' which Coachella Festival goers will have heard on the first weekend of the event when they collaborated during Zedd's set.

KeshaKesha is back in business with 'True Colors'

'True Colors' featuring Kesha is pretty much exactly the same as the original version Zedd released in 2015 as the title track for his US Dance chart topping album which originally had Rock Mafia's Tim James on vocals. Though this version has adjusted a few choice lines.

Dr. Luke Joins Jennifer Lopez & Keith Urban As Third 'American Idol' Judge


Dr Luke Jennifer Lopez Keith Urban Simon Cowell Kelly Clarkson Nicki Minaj Kesha Tom Jones Jennifer Hudson Steven Tyler Mariah Carey Paula Abdul Will.i.am

Dr. Luke will be joining Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez on the judging panel of American Idol. Dr. Luke a.k.a. Lukas Gottwald is the third judge to be announced with another yet to be agreed upon. E! first reported the news.

Dr Luke
Dr Luke (L) with Katy Perry and Max Martin (R) with their ASCAP Awards in 2012.

Gottwald is a songwriter and producer who is responsible for the likes of Kelly Clarkson's 'Since U Been Gone'; Kesha's 'Tik Tok' and Katy Perry's 'California Gurls'. As Urban and Lopez are involved in the performance side of the music industry, Gottwald is likely to provide an interesting perspective when judging the televised singing competition.

Ke$ha Receives Harsh Words From Rock Group The Residents Over On-Stage Routine


Kesha The Residents

Ke$ha's most recent tour saw her dancing in front of a chorus line of tuxedo and top hat wearing men with oversized eyeball masks covering their face. The costumes worn by the backing dancers seem to be inspired by the veteran rock group, The Residents, but the avant-garde art collective are claiming that not only did Ke$ha steal their idea, but she hasn't given the group any recognition for the image.

Kesha Logo
Her on stage routine does look mightily similar to The Residents

The Residents aren't looking to sue Ke$ha or anything, all they want is some recognition and a thank you from the singer for inspiring the look. Ke$ha has been spotted wearing a Residents t-shirt in the past - during an interview with MTV - and is probably a fan of their work, and the band are simply asking for some recognition from her for using their image during the stage show.

"American Girl" Bonnie McKee's Musician Friends Might Help Make Her An International Pop Star


Bonnie McKee Katy Perry Kesha Adam Lambert Macklemore Carly Rae Jepsen

Think of someone currently in the pop music business – no really, anyone – and they’re probably in Bonnie McKee’s new music video for American Girl. If you’re wondering who Bonnie McKee is, you wouldn’t be the first. It’s not that you haven’t heard her music, it’s just that the songwriter has so far stayed behind the scenes, writing music for people like Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Tayo Cruz, Adam Lambert and Carly Rae Jepsen.

Bonnie McKee, MusiCares Person of the Year
Bonnie McKee - we might be seeing a lot of this face in the future.

Coincidentally, all of these people make cameo appearances in her American Girl video. Joining them are other stars, like Kiss (we’re not even kidding), Macklemore, Jewel, Jason Derulo, Karmin, Kelly Osbourne – seriously, it’s pretty much the 2012 Billboard chart squeezed into a single video. Plus an appearance by McKee herself, of course. In the video, she’s eating a cheeseburger and sucking on a popsicle. It’s not as bad as it sounds, though. And to be fair, the song is quite catchy.

The 2013 Billboard Music Awards looked to be one of the most celeb-filled events of the year with some of the music industry's biggest stars making their glamorous arrivals. 

'22' singer Taylor Swift clutched eight accolades to her chest as she posed on the red carpet having won Top Billboard 200 Album and Top Country Album for 'Red', Top Country Song with 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together', Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Digital Songs Artist and Top Country Artist. Carly Rae Jepsen was another young female star to land a prize winning Top Digital Song and Top Pop Song for her massive 2012 hit 'Call Me Maybe'. Queen of Pop Madonna scooped up three well deserved awards including Top Dance Album for 'MDNA', Top Dance Artist and Top Touring Artist after her controversial 'MDNA' tour which landed her amidst a handful of lawsuits. There was no sign of letting up on the controversial front either as she donned hotpants, suspenders and fishnets at the Billboard event. Top Streaming Artist, Top Rap Artist and Top Rap Album with 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' went to Nicki Minaj while Top EDM Artist was none other than David Guetta who brought his wife Cathy Guetta along with him to the awards show.

Ke$ha Drinks Her Own Urine. Repeat. Ke$ha Drinks Her Own Urine


Kesha Snoop Dogg

The headline pretty much says it all. Yes, 26-year-old Die Young singer Ke$ha has clearly been watching Kevin Costner in Waterworld. But while Costner managed to set up a nifty gadget that purified his urine into fresh water, Ke$ha is simply swilling it down - straight from the barrel, reports the Hollywood Reporter.

The singer has gained a reputation for being somewhat  of an oddball. In her new documentary series by filmmaker brother Lagan Sebert, she's filmed jumping out of airplanes, making out in clubs, crying over nasty comments from bloggers and drinking her own urine. "I heard it was good for you. That was, like, the rumor," she said of the latter. "But I don't know. I'm also just one that doesn't shy away from things. I'm not good at saying 'no' so I just figure, f--k it, I'll try anything once. So I tried it. I wouldn't recommend it. It was pretty gross. And I don't think it really did anything very beneficial to me so, yeah, I wouldn't probably do it again".

The party-girl hit the headlines earlier this month after it was alleged she was puffing on a joint onstage at the MTV Movie Awards with Snoop Dogg, though Ke$ha coyly refuted the allegations. "It was glitter. . We were just smoking my glitter," she said.

The Crazy Life Of Ke$ha To Be Taken To The Small Screen In New Docu-Series


Kesha

Ke$ha has become something of an enigma since exploding onto the music scene in 2010, with the pop star well-known for her partying antics but not a lot else. The new fly-on-the-wall MTV series, Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life, looks to remove some of this enigma and open up Ke$ha's larger than life personality to the public when it airs tonight (April 23).

Kesha
Ke$ha will bare (nearly) all for ehr new series.

The 'Tik Tok' singer has been hard at work promoting the new series in recent weeks, revealing some rather startling, but not not really that surprising, facts about her everyday life. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the singer revealed some interesting facts about herself and lamented that despite popular belief she isn't such a man-eater after all. "I'm actually not a slut. I just like to kiss people," she told the journal.

Selena Gomez was a highlight of the weekend’s NewNowNext awards, in which celebrities are celebrated for such highly sought-after talents as having the best new hairdo, being the ‘most addictive reality star’ and having the ‘hottest, sexiest ink.’ Oh yeah. This is the important stuff, folks. Gomez rocked up on the red carpet wearing a pair of leather-look trousers and a peplum top. You thought the peplum look was on its way out, but you were wrong.

Selena wasn’t the only star to make a show at the awards, either. Kesha arrived looking cool in a mint green, vintage style dress and her long blond fringe almost covering her eyes. She’s obviously been paying attention to the grunge styles currently flooding the catwalk and went for the ‘if you squint, I look a lot like Courtney Love’ vibe. Black Eyed Peas’ Fergie was there, too, hiding her bump, her bump, her lovely baby bump, under an Oriental style black dress.

3rd Day Of Yahoo! Wireless Festival 2013 Announced! Legends Of The Summer Feat Justin Timberlake And Jay Z

3rd Day Of Yahoo! Wireless Festival 2013 Announced! Legends Of The Summer Feat Justin Timberlake And Jay Z

Jay Z Illuminati Links: Are They True?


Jay Z Kesha Russell Simmons

Are Jay Z’s Illuminati links true? Life is pretty sweet for the multi-million selling rapper, successful entrepreneur and husband of one of pop’s most successful woman, Beyonce. Jay Z’s net worth is getting up towards $500 million, the positivity of his press is at an all-time high, this is a man who's getting richer and more popular as life goes on. Things seem sweet, alright – but are they too sweet? When the rapper turned up to the Grammys wearing a great big diamond ring that, according to the site Media Take Out, bore all the hallmarks of designs worn by those in the Illuminati, alarm bells started ringing – or at least they did for the tin hat wearers and conspiracy nuts.

Just in case you weren’t aware of what the Illuminati was for some reason, it’s generally regarded as a secret society that for a long time has called the shots of what goes on in the world – no matter what appears to be going on on the surface. Jay Z is far from the only celebrity to have been linked with the supposedly ancient organization, in fact it seems that many are viewed as making their way to the top with a helping hand along the way. Just last year Ke$ha’s Die Young video was purported to have contained Illuminati imagery, with the star dancing around it. Russell Simmons is another character who last year was challenged on whether he was in the secret society. His reply to TMZ - "Are you kidding me? I'm a grown f*cking man!" – should have shut the doubters up. Except no one who was actually in The Illuminati would admit they were in it of course! You can see how the cycle goes, and how people are aligned to it by others whether it’s real or not.

Ke$ha's 'Die Young' - is she in the illuminati?

Ke$ha Bragged About Penning Die Young Lyrics Before Newtown Shooting


Kesha

Ok, so people should probably go easy on Ke$ha. We can think of a thousand songs that would be deemed slightly inappropriate to play in the wake of the Newtown school massacre, though it seems the Tik-Tok star hasn't been telling the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

In case you haven't heard, Ke$ha claimed to have been forced into singing the lyrics for her track 'Die Young',  after several radio stations around the country stopped playing it. She told Twitter followers, "I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO." The track - a Billboard hit - featured the lyrics, "Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young.  We're gonna die young.  We're gonna die young." The problem is, Ke$ha is credited as a co-writer of the track and during an appearance on 95.5 WPLJ in New York back in November she told the host, "I definitely make sure that every word rings true to me because I would never want to misrepresent myself to millions of people around the world ... I wrote and rewrote and rewrote that song ten times." You can't have it both ways, Ke$ha. 

On December 18, the singer seemingly apologised for the whole furore, saying, "I'm so so so sorry for anyone who has been effected by this tragedy.and I understand why my song is now inappropriate. words cannot express."

Kesha Claims She Was Forced To Sing 'Die Young' Lyrics As Stations Pull Track


Kesha Foster The People

Several radio stations have pulled Ke$ha's popular tune 'Die Young' following the tragic school shooting in Connecticut last Friday. The song concerns making the most of a night out "like we're gonna die young," which some program directors deemed inappropriate under the circumstances, reports Billboard.

A morning host of Connecticut's WDAQ station said that although the song may be about "seizing the moment, unfortunately, "all people are going to hear right now is those two words in the title." As a result, the station will not be playing the song, as well as Foster The People's Pumped Up Kicks. Ke$ha's song currently sits at No.3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, though it seems the singer herself isn't too keen on the track. She tweeted that she stands behind the decision to pull the song, saying that she herself questioned the song's lyrics from the beginning, "[I] understand. I had my very own issue with 'die young' for this reason. I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO," later adding, "I'm so so so sorry for anyone who has been effected by this tragedy.and I understand why my song is now inappropriate. words cannot express."

Ke$ha has sold 3 million albums and 30 million singles worldwide.

"I Was Forced To Sing 'Die Young': Ke$ha Apologizes For Offence After Newtown


Kesha

Ke$ha has apologized publicly for any offence caused by her song ‘Die Young,’ in the wake of the recent Newtown school massacre. She also claimed that she was forced to sing the lyrics and claims that she was never comfortable with singing them, for the very reason that something like this tragedy may happen.

On her Twitter page, according to The Herald Sun Kesha wrote “I had my very own issues with ‘die young’ for this reason. I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO.” That tweet has now been deleted – perhaps she was forced to do that, too. She replaced it with a new message – a simple apology this time, saying “I'm so so so sorry for anyone who has been effected by this tragedy.and I understand why my song is now inappropriate. words cannot express.”

In the aftermath of the Newtown tragedy, in which 26 people were killed by a gunman who entered an elementary school and opened fire, Ke$ha’s hit single was pulled from radio stations, to avoid causing offence to the public and to those affected by the events in the Connecticut school. The offending lyrics were “Looking for some trouble tonight /Take my hand, I'll show you the wild, side / Like it's the last night of our lives / We'll keep dancing till we die / Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young / We're gonna die young.”

Mick Jagger Breaks Silence On Maroon 5's 'Moves Like Jagger'


Mick Jagger Rolling Stones David Letterman Maroon 5 Christina Aguilera Adam Levine Kesha Cher Lloyd

Mick Jagger has finally broken his silence on the subject of Maroon 5's number one hit 'Moves Like Jagger' and revealed that he didn't get paid anything for his reference in the song.

The Rolling Stones lead vocalist appeared for an interview on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' and, to the viewers' amusement, produced a list entitled: 'Top Ten Things I, Mick Jagger, Have Learned After 50 Years In Rock 'n' Roll'. On the list was a light-hearted dig at Maroon 5's song 'Moves Like Jagger' featuring Christina Aguilera, the video of which begins with footage of Jagger in his younger years and later shows singer Adam Levine trying out some of the famous dance moves. Jagger had written on his list that he had learned that "You don't earn a cent when someone does a song about having moves like Jagger." The music legend also drew laughs from his other advice which included, "Be considerate of other hotel guests - trash your room by 10 pm" and, "Before shouting 'Hi Seattle!' make sure you're in Seattle."

'Moves Like Jagger' is not the first number one hit that has referenced the star; he has also been mentioned in Ke$ha's 'TiK ToK' ('We kick em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger') and Cher Lloyd's 'Swagger Jagger'. 

Kesha - Warrior Album Review


As with most things Ke$ha does, Warrior is a statement of intent. And that intent seems to be the intent to party. And maybe to playfight a little. And then to continue partying, until night turns into day and back again. She nails her colours firmly to the mast in 'C'Mon,' where she states, quite clearly, "I wanna stay up all night / I wanna just screw around / I don't wanna think about what's gonna be after this / I wanna just live right now." Ke$ha's preaching nihilism, within the confines of modern pop music. And modern pop music's confines state that in order to be a successful female pop star, you either have to be bonkers or beautiful. Or both. And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is why she has a dollar sign in her name.

There's no one quite like Ke$ha out there, you see. She might not quite have the gravitational pull of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry or Rihanna just yet but listening to an entire album's worth of Ke$ha's material is a gazillion times more enriching than doing the same with any of her apparent peers. She doesn't waste her time peppering her music with constant self-conscious cultural references, a la Lady Gaga. Nor is she a victim of the kind of super-slick PR machinery that holds together the pop construct that we call Rihanna. Ke$ha shows little sign of restraint on Warrior and that's precisely what makes it such an entertaining listen.  And it's a genuine lack of restraint, too, not the kind of tongue-in-cheek "ooh, look at me being dead naughty" lack of restraint that Katy Perry touts, either.

Talking of Perry, there's a moment at the start of the opening track ('Warrior') in which Ke$ha's vocals seem to be mimicking the Teenage Dream singer. Thankfully, any moments of imitation seem to be fleeting and incidental (or, if they're deliberate, then brief enough to make the point that she needn't rely on someone else's style to carry her through). Like the moment on 'C'Mon' when she goes all Nicki Minaj, before quickly bringing it all back home to the House of Ke$ha.

Look at the picture above. It's Ke$ha arriving for the MTV Video and Music Awards back in 2010. She doesn't look great does she? Perhaps more suited to a night out on a street corner than one spent at a glitzy music event. Of course, Ke$ha's arrival into the music scene always saw her marketed as a trashy, uncompromising entity, foul-mouthed and shameless; whilst that was great for a novelty it sure led to a general mauling by the fashion critics every time she stepped out in public.

Kesha On Sleeping With Justin Bieber: It's News To Me!


Justin Bieber Kesha

Despite admitting she once had sex with a ghost, Kesha has categorically denied that she slept with Justin Bieber. In a bizarre lawsuit - reported by TMZ.com - Bieber is accused of cheating on his girlfriend with Kesha, Rihanna and Penelope Cruz, by someone alleging to be Selena Gomez's father.

Confused? So is Kesha, who told Australian radio show Hot30 Countdown, "I mean that's news to me .No, I have not, for the record, ever slept with Justin Bieber. More than that, he has a girlfriend who is really, really hot, so. I think he's sorted." In the frankly comical court documents filed earlier this year, the man alleging to be Selena's father says "Bieber has cost me $426.78 and never paid me back. This money was used as abortion money because Justin Bieber got my daughter Selena pregnant in my bedroom, on my canadian bear rug." Oh no, not the Canadian bear rug! Even funnier, he adds, "Usher Raymond came to my house on the fourth of July 2012 and sodomized me with a firework and lit it inside my anal area while blaring kate perry [sic] firework song in my ear drums." So just to recap, that's Usher sodomizing Selena Gomez's father with a firework while listening to Katy Perry.

None of this will worry Bieber, who is currently out on his tour of North American before he heads to the UK in February.

Ke$ha Had Sexual Experience With A Ghost?

Kesha claims she once had a sexual experience with a ghost. The 25-year-old pop star was speaking on KIIS FM about the inspiration and ideas behind her spooky new song ‘Supernatural’.

The single is the second to be taken from Kesha’s new album ‘Warrior,’ which is packed full of electro-rock and dance-pop themes. As for the writing of ‘Supernatural,’ the singer explained, “It's about experiences with the supernatural…but in a sexy way. I had a couple of experiences with the supernatural. I don't know his name! He was a ghost! I'm very open to it.” It seems as though the entire record was inspired by similar oddities, and Kesha added, “The theme of this record is magic. I went on a spirit journey by myself. No security guard. No managers. I just went around the world and lived on a boat.” Kesha’s Tik Tok single catapulted the Californian to fame in 2009, gaining generally mixed reviews, though selling millions. To be fair, she’s enlisted a pretty impressive team for the new record, with The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney and The Flaming LipsWayne Coyne lending a hand, as well as rock stalwart Iggy Pop.

‘Warrior’ – the follow-up the Kesha’s 2010 debut LP ‘Animal’ – will be released on December 3, 2012.
