Who else is backing the 'Tik Tok' hitmaker?
Since Kesha lost her case against her alleged abuser Dr. Luke, she's received an overwhelming amount of support from fans and fellow celebrities alike. She may have been denied a preliminary injunction from his Sony imprint Kemosabe that would allow her to continue her career in an environment where she would feel safer, but so many people are still very much standing behind her.
Kesha continues to win support from her fellow artists
Lorde, Ariana Grande, Adam Lambert, Clean Bandit, Haim and Halsey to name but a few, have all written messages of support over Twitter, confessing their horror at the situation and offering their prayers. Here are just a few more stars who are really pushing the #FreeKesha campaign.
Lady GaGa - The 'Til It Happens To You' singer has been especially vocal about Kesha's situation as it's something she's come to feel strongly about; she wrote her own ode to rape culture in colleges for the Oscar nominated documentary 'The Hunting Ground'. 'There are people all over the world who love you Kesha. And I can say truly I am in awe of your bravery', she wrote on Twitter following the court verdict. She also opened up her feelings in an interview with Times Talks.
Adele backed Kesha in her Brits speech
Adele - In an extraordinary demonstration of bravery, Adele chose her award acceptance speech at the Brit Awards last night (February 24th 2016) to show her support for Kesha. 'I'd like to take this moment to publicly support Kesha', she declared, amid her thank-yous. The reason why it was brave of her is because her American label Columbia is actually a Sony-owned company.
Taylor Swift - She was slammed by Demi Lovato for not making any sort of public statement in support of Kesha's case, but she instead went one step further by donating a generous $250,000 towards her legal fees. It doesn't matter what the unimpressed Lovato was saying, Kesha's mother took to Twitter to confess her gratitude towards Swift's kindness.
Taylor Swift is the first to donate to Kesha's cause
Demi Lovato - Lovato herself had some very strong opinions about women's rights which she revealed on Twitter, but. having been through her own fair share of hardships in her life, she also had some words of advice for Kesha. 'This is only gonna make you stronger, you brave and beautiful girl. Prayers are with you', she said.
Jack Antonoff - Another brave soul who happens to be with Sony's RCA Records, he announced his support over Twitter too and even offered to help her make music and perhaps find a contract loophole. 'Hey Kesha, don't know what the legal specifics are, but if you want to make something together and then leak it for everyone I'm around', he said. 'Or just make something and wait on it till that creep can't block you anymore. Standing offer.' Similarly, German producer Zedd also offered his services to the troubled star in a Tweet that Ellie Goulding re-Tweeted.
Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff offer huge support
Lena Dunham - Of course, Antonoff's wife was also fiercely behind Kesha. On her LennyLetter site, she penned an entire article about her feelings on the case and the parallels it draws with domestic violence. 'The lack of perspective on the part of Sony - the inability to look at the worth of a woman's platinum records versus the worth of her soul being intact - is horrifying', she said. The article has since been re-posted on Twitter and Facebook by the likes of fellow actresses Kerry Washington, Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain.
Iggy Azalea - Azalea went for a diplomatic approach to the situation, but was ultimately leaning in Kesha's favour. 'If two people dont want to be in business with one another it seems very cruel for one to hold the other in a contract', she said. 'I'm not accusing anyone of anything, but I believe Kesha deserves the ability to move forward, create and earn a living.'
Fiona Apple - She doesn't even use social media herself and she's making sure the internet knows her point of view on the whole Kesha situation. Holding a message board reading: 'Kesha, I am so angry for you. They were wrong. I'm so sorry', she posted on Margaret Cho's Instagram page and the image has since been re-shared by the likes of Miley Cyrus and Snoop Dogg.
Kelly Clarkson - Yet another sony artist who's not afraid to speak her mind. 'Trying to not say anything since I can't say anything nice about a person... so this is me not talking about Dr. Luke', she said on Twitter, rather unambiguously. It just serves to prove that record labels don't have as much control over their artists as some people think.
