So Ke$ha lost the court case against her producer Dr. Luke.

Speaking in the courtroom, New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich said: “You’re asking the court to decimate a contract that was heavily negotiated and typical for the industry.”

Commenting that Dr. Luke had invested $60 million in Kesha’s career and that she had the option to record under another producer at Sony,

Justice Kornreich added: “My instinct is to do the commercially reasonable thing.”

WOW.

Take a look at this photo. Does Kesha look like a lying celebrity craving for publicity? No. She looks like any other young woman who’s been denied her freedom. And to think that a WOMAN would just take away another woman’s freedom is nauseating. Funny how society treats men and women so differently. Kesha also said that she’d been sexually assaulted by Dr. Luke for almost a decade. And the court still ruled against her favor. All because she signed a contract with Sony Records, with Dr. Luke as her exclusive producer, that requires her to release six more albums with them.

Nobody should have to go through all that, that and having to live with being stuck in the rut. Everyone deserves freedom and the court couldn’t even grant a person that. Like Lady Gaga put it:

Go, Gaga.

And to think that sexism was ancient history.

It's amazing when people support the right person.

What do you think of the whole thing?

  1. I am not familiar with this case. Unfortunately it is a familiar occurrence. As I read the post, my mind went to something that the rapper 50 cent said of the music business. He said,” at least when you are dealing on the street, the criminals have the courtesy of putting a Gun in Your Face as you are being robbed. These dudes, do it with pen and paper.”

  2. I find this whole thing is rather disturbing. It sickens me that a woman (celeb or not) can’t get justice for sexual abuse as easily as they should. I agree with Gaga, it’s stupid that the law defines what is a legally considered a sexual abuse and what is not. I think these kinds of thing just further allows the objectification women and enables abusers to do more harm… It’s stupid that Kesha was denied her rights by another woman because she signed a contract with Dr. Luke as her producer. That’s cold and inhumane. A record production contract and rape case are completely different things. Seriously, I don’t think I’ve heard of any professional contracts related to a legal career that basically states “One can be sexual penetrated w/o consent.” …That’s just messed up. I think Dr. Luke just pulled out the, “Oh but I invested $60 million dollars in her and she’s under a contract” card because he just wanted to profit off of her and save his own career/self. Completely selfish and self-centred.

    Sadly, I think a lot of women in the entertainment industry get abused and denied their rights – esp. when they are new to the industry and striving to make a career. Unfortunately, they are scared to come forward because a majority of the time, their future lies on the hands of their abusers who can easily take away their future careers in acting, singing, modelling, etc. I’m not saying all people in the entertainment industries are abusers. However, I think there are lots of cases like these. We just don’t hear about them much because these women are not big time celebrities or not well known to the public eye or just doesn’t report them because they are afraid and sometimes think that it’s okay for them to allow abusers to take advantage of them because in the long run, they will eventually end up higher up in their careers. It’s sad, but true.
