The sad reason why Kesha has fallen off the radar
Those days are well and truly over, with her last album 'Warrior' having been released well over two years ago. That album featured bangers like 'Die Young' and 'Crazy Kids'. She's been radio-silent since then though.. why? Where did she go?
Last year, she filed a lawsuit against Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, her producer, for verbally and physically assaulting her for years. He filed a countersuit, claiming Kesha was merely trying to extort him so she could get out of her contract, and Kesha responded by expanding her lawsuit to include all of Sony Music, which she argues chose to ignore that Dr. Luke was drugging and raping her. If what is said in this lawsuit is true then it is truly unacceptable and Kesha should be allowed out of her contract IMMEDIATELY (as well as Dr Luke being held to account)!
Kesha has this week filed an injunction in hopes of forcing a judge to make a decision, with her lawyer explaining that—because she’s still stuck in her contract with Sony and Dr. Luke and clearly doesn’t want to work with them— her “brand value has fallen.” If the court doesn’t do something soon, “Kesha will suffer irreparable harm, plummeting her career past the point of no return.” Former CEO of Universal Music Jim Urie put it much more directly, saying, “If Kesha cannot immediately resume recording…her career is effectively over.”
Let's hope this all gets sorted out soon because we NEED some more Kesha music in our lives!
