Celebs Rally Behind Kesha After Court Ruled Against Her
After Kesha's recording contract with Sony Music Entertainment and super-producer Dr. Luke was upheld in court on Friday, celebrities have take to social media to back Kesha in her struggle.
The New York Supreme Court denied an injunction that would have allowed Kesha to sign with another label without fear of interference from Dr. Luke, who she has accused of drugging, raping and emotionally abusing her.
The decision has kept the 28-year-old Tik Tok singer contractually obligated to Sony.
During Halsey's show in Glasgow, she dedicated her Badlands anthem, Hold Me Down, to Kesha.
She yelled: "To Kesha Rose!" before launching into the song.
Halsey had also tweeted earlier that day about the Supreme Court decision concerning Kesha, saying she was "disgusted".
Disgusted by anyone in power positions abusing their authority. My heart breaks for Kesha and all people affected by this toxicity. Fuck.— HALSEY (@halsey) February 19, 2016
I don't even know what I would do... I only hope she can find peace and find a way to continue to create express herself without fear.— HALSEY (@halsey) February 19, 2016
Kesha has since tweeted her thanks for support to her fans during this time...

standing with @KeshaRose through this traumatic, deeply unfair time. send good vibes her way everyone— Lorde (@lorde) February 19, 2016
the fact that kesha has to choose to either freely make music or avoid the person who abused her is outrageous and degrading #freekesha— bea (@BeaMiller) February 19, 2016
really disappointing to hear about this kesha case. no one should be denied freedom from their abuser, nor freedom of their creativity.— ac (@alessiacara) February 19, 2016
Im not accusing anyone of anything, but i believe Kesha deserves the ability to move forward, create and earn a living.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) February 20, 2016

If you don't see why this Kesha issue is a big deal, you're part of the problem. This is exactly why I speak up the way I do #FreeKesha— Best Coast (@BestCoast) February 19, 2016
Trying 2 not say anything since I can't say anything nice about a person... so this is me not talking about Dr. Luke https://t.co/lLhtUHbmgG— Kelly Clarkson (@kelly_clarkson) February 19, 2016
I don't know all the facts, of course, but the bottom line is: it is a terrible feeling to not own your voice/ be able to release music.— JoJo (@iamjojo) February 19, 2016
