Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersLady GaGaKesha

Kesha drops music video for Woman

Kesha isn't messing around when it comes to her comeback.

In order to prove this point, the pop starlet dropped another single off her upcoming album Rainbow, only a week after releasing her power ballad Praying. We see you, girl!

Kesha has made it pretty clear that her new album is going to be empowering AF as her latest track is all about being "a motherfucking woman." Heck, the song is even titled Woman.

The blonde is certainly oozing Lady GaGa Joanne-era vibes as Woman has a funky, country sound to it. Not to mention, the 30-year-old rocks a red cowboy hat throughout the music video released alongside the single. If the hat was pink we would've thought we were watching the John Wayne vid! Kidding.

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the video for yourself (below) AND let us know your thoughts in the comments section (again, below)!

Kesha's Mother Retracts Claims That Dr. Luke 'Date Raped' & 'Physically And Mentally' Abused Her Daughter

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersKeshaControversy

no title

One less lawsuit for everyone involved…

On Friday, Dr. Luke dropped his 2014 defamation suit against Kesha's mother Pebe Sebert after she withdrew her statement that the music producer "date raped Kesha when she was 18," and that he abused her "both physically and mentally."

The songwriter — whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald — accused the singer's mother of "publishing false and shocking accusations" as a way of getting her daughter out of her recording contract.

In a joint statement, Sebert says she has no "firsthand knowledge of the events occurring on the night of the alleged rape," adding:

L.A. Reid Accused Of Sexual Harassment Amid His Sudden Departure From Sony Music!

Filed under: Legal MattersX FactorSony

no title

We still might not know where Dr. Luke stands with Sony Music, but it looks like the label isn't as hesitant to cut ties with other veteran producers.

Last week, the company announced that Epic Records chairman and CEO L.A. Reid was leaving Sony after six years.

Now, the reason behind his abrupt exit is coming to light: Reid has been accused of sexual harassment by a female assistant at Epic.

The New York Post reports that the accuser, represented by an attorney, submitted a letter to Sony detailing alleged inappropriate behavior by the industry veteran.

Multiple outlets have confirmed that the letter exists, and have discovered there have been "multiple" claims made against the record head who helped launch the careers of Meghan Trainor and Fifth Harmony.

But unlike its situation with Dr. Luke, the company isn't letting industry success excuse inappropriate behavior in the workplace. A source familiar with the X Factor host's ouster told The Post:

Dr. Luke's Rep Says The Music Producer & Sony 'Are Not Cutting Ties' — Well Then, What IS Going On??

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersKeshaSonyControversy

dr luke not ousted from sony

Dr. Luke (born Lukasz Gottwald) hasn't been fully ousted from Sony after all.

As we previously reported, the music company supposedly dropped the producer as CEO of Kemosabe Records — a record label Gottwald established with Sony back in 2011.

While many believed this demotion meant the industry vet would no longer have a working relationship with the media conglomerate, his rep has since defended that the 43-year-old is still professionally connected to Sony.

Dr. Luke's spokesperson told The Los Angeles Times:

"This is wrong, they are not cutting ties."

Well, well. We wonder what Kesha will have to say about this?? In case you forgot, the pop starlet has been trapped in a legal battle with the hitmaker since 2014 after she accused him of abuse.

We guess we'll just have to wait and see if Sony tries to clarify this incredibly confusing situation.

Dr. Luke Has Been Dropped By Sony!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersBusiness BlitzKeshaSony

Dr. Luke has been dropped by Sony.

Well, this is certainly interesting.

Dr. Luke has been dropped by Sony, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The producer is also no longer the CEO of Kemosabe Records, which he established with Sony in 2011. Furthermore, Sony has stated that Luke "no longer has authority to act on its behalf."

Even though this might seem like good news for Kesha, we're not sure that it actually nullifies her contract with the producer. It sounds like Dr. Luke is still the only one who can break that contract with her.

Moreover, in her court papers, the Tik Tok singer previously told the judge that Sony and Dr. Luke's relationship was about to come to an end, and that things would be worse for her once she no longer had the music giant behind her to act as a "go-between."

Complicating matters further is the fact that the music producer still has a pending defamation lawsuit against her, and his lawyers are in the process of gathering evidence that proves his career has suffered greatly due to Kesha's rape allegations. Being dropped by Sony might be another thing they can use against her.

We'll keep you updated as we learn more.

Kesha's Latest Legal Setback!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersBusiness BlitzNew YorkKeshaSony

no title

Kesha's case against Dr. Luke, AKA Lukasz Gottwald, has been dealt one of the most savage legal blows since it began, certainly since she was denied an injunction last year.

The Timber singer is trying to get out of her contract legally after claiming her former producer raped her. But so far all she's gotten is sued by Gottwald for trying to ruin his name with the allegations.

Kesha previously tried to get out of her contract by describing her alleged rape as a hate crime on the part of Dr. Luke — but that was rebuffed.

This time, she attempted to amend her countersuit against the producer, trying two new tactics to argue her case.

In the first, she argued recording artists should have a legal backdoor available to them, like divorce for married couples. Her argument went:
