If this is true, it is absolutely crazy!

Dr. Luke is getting on the defensive amid his ongoing legal battle with Kesha.
On Monday, Kelly Clarkson said the music producer was "not a good person" in a radio interview, revealing she was "blackmailed" by her label to work with him!
Now, a spokesman for the Kemosabe Records founder has hit back at the Piece By Piece songstress — and is saying that she ain't no picnic to work with either!
According to Digital Spy, the mega-producer's spokesperson responded with an excerpt from Sony Music chief Clive Davis' 2013 memoir The Soundtrack to My Life — which notes that Clarkson "didn't like" taking direction in the recording studio.
The excerpt explains that Luke and his songwriting partner Max Martin were "very strong, hands-on producers in the studio," and butted heads with the American Idol winner:
"[Dr. Luke and Max] are intent on getting perfect vocal performances, and are relentless in that pursuit. It was hard for Kelly, who had come from the high of winning American Idol and then having a double platinum album…But then suddenly you're in an entirely different world of making records in a studio, and you have to take direction. Kelly didn't like it."
But this memoir may not be the best source for Luke to use to fire back at Clarkson, as the 33-year-old has blasted the book as inaccurate about her music on multiple occasions!
Just last month, the pop star responded to a Kesha fan account who quoted the memoir, claiming that Dr. Luke brought Clarkson to tears while working on the song Since U Been Gone — to which she responded on Twitter, writing:
And even back in 2013 when the book was published, Kelly posted a blog about her side of the story — claiming the record head was "spreading false information" about her and her music!
Hmmm… where do YOU think the truth lies in this game of he wrote she said?
