Kesha is doing everything she can to save her career!
In a recent move in the singer's legal battle against Dr. Luke and Sony, the blonde beauty pleaded for a judge to approve a preliminary injunction — which means that the New York judge presiding over the case will soon have to make a decision whether or not she has enough evidence to say her recording contracts are void.

The preliminary injunction is necessary for Kesha to move on with her music career — the 28-year-old can't "work with music producers, publishers, or record labels to release new music" until she's freed of her obligations to Sony.
The Tick Tock singer's lawyer expressed fear that if the judge doesn't approve this legal measure, then the former hit maker's career will be DUNZO. Kesha's attorney elaborated on this point, saying:
"…With no new music to perform, Kesha cannot tour. Off the radio and stage and out of the spotlight, Kesha cannot sell merchandise, receive sponsorships, or get media attention. Her brand value has fallen, and unless the Court issues this injunction, Kesha will suffer irreparable harm, plummeting her career past the point of no return."
Well, considering Kesha hasn't released any new music in forever, we'd have to agree with her legal rep! Girl needs to do something soon before she fades into obscurity!
In the legal docs, the free spirit received support from the former president of Universal Music Group who also agreed that the injunction is necessary for the Los Angeles native to move forward. The once prez explained:
"No mainstream distribution company will invest the money necessary to distribute songs for an artist who has fallen from the public eye, as is happening to Kesha at this very moment. Accordingly, if Kesha cannot immediately resume recording and having her music promoted, marketed, and distributed by a major label, her career is effectively over."
Yikes! If we were Kesha, we'd be super worried right about now…
On Sony and Dr. Luke's ends, they maintain that this lawsuit is just a "transparent" ploy for Kesha to renegotiate her contract. For those who don't remember, the singer alleged many counts of emotional abuse from Luke and even went as far to claim that the producer raped her.
