For a few months now, it has been publicized that artist Kesha Sebert was not releasing any new music for a reasons which somehow involved her producer. According to the New York Daily News, Kesha was a victim of sexual assault from her record producer Dr. Luke during her career while she was signed with Sony. When trying to press charges, the privilege to release any new music was taken away from her. Before February, fans and supporters were waiting for the day they were going to find out if Kesha would be able to break her contract with Sony.

February 19th, 2016, was one of the biggest days of Kesha’s career. It was the day for her to find out whether or not she could cut her contract. Sadly, her plea for freedom was rejected by the judge of the courtroom. Authorities at People Magazine’s website report that the judge claimed she did not give enough evidence for her case. With this denial, Kesha has no choice, now, but to work with her allegedly abusive record label.

Recently, in late February, Lady Gaga had some impressive performances (The Grammys, The Oscars). According to People Magazine, she was one of the first people to stand with Kesha. On her social media, when posing for a photo with Kesha, Gaga received many negative comments, consisting of many people “victim-shaming” her and Kesha. Gaga responded to the commentary by saying they should not “victim-shame.”
Right now, supporters are only able to spread awareness and join in with other female singers, such as Adele and Taylor Swift. We stand with Kesha!

Gaga’s Full Message about Victim Shaming (from her Instagram):
“The very reason women don’t speak up for years is the fear that no one will believe them or their abuser has threatened their life or life of their loved ones/livelihood in order to keep their victim quiet and under control. What happened to Kesha has happened to many female artists, including myself, and it will affect her for the rest of her life. No one needs to validate Kesha. Why is the victim always the ‘liar’? Why do we let people in a position of power get away with behaving inhumanely? These guys hide behind the legal system and it’s their litigious behavior that is precisely what they use to rape these girls. ‘Give me what I want or else I will come after you’ and they have all the money and the resources to do it.”
