Khaleesi Emilia Clark BLASTS Critics Who Call Game Of Thrones Sexist — See Her Defense Of The Show's 'Depiction Of Women'!

no title

Game Of Thrones has always been under fire for its treatment of women, especially after last season's controversial rape scene.

But if there's one person who's tired of the critics saying the HBO fantasy hit is sexist, it's the show's most powerful character — who also happens to be a woman — Daenerys Targaryen.

The last time we saw the Mother of Dragons, she was surrounded by a swarm of Dothraki soldiers in the season five finale.

And even though Emilia Clarke says her character is "back to square one, feeling like a slave – simply for being a woman" — the actress argues the show proves women can have many different forms of power, and still exude bravery and strength.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Clarke weighed in on the controversy surrounding GoT's treatment of women, saying:

Kesha Is Appealing Her Injunction Ruling Against Dr. Luke

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersKeshaControversy

See the argument HERE!

Kesha isn't done fighting.

On Monday, the pop powerhouse filed legal papers to take her battle with Dr. Luke — AKA Lukasz Gottwald — to an appeals court.

Last month, the blonde was denied her injunction bid to get out of her recording contract with the Sony producer, who she claims sexually assaulted and abused her.

The 29-year-old's lawyer, Mark Geragos, wrote in the docs that keeping his client in her contract is similar to slavery:

"First, the Court erred in basing its decision on its finding that Kesha could record without interference from Gottwald. Although it recognized that 'slavery was done away with a long time ago' and that '[y]ou can't force someone to work . . . in a situation in which they don't want to work,' the Court's ruling requiring Kesha to work for Gottwald's companies, purportedly without his involvement, does just that."

The attorney also explained that, if let out of her contract with her alleged abuser, Kesha could compensate Sony Music Entertainment for breaking her deal.

He argued that the judge didn't consider that alternative option would allow the singer to be free while also giving the music giant the ability to still get their money back, saying:

AnnaLynne McCord shares her support!

AnnaLynne McCord continues to inspire by speaking up about sexual abuse.

In case you don't remember, the former 90210 star opened up in 2014 about being raped by a "friend" when she was 18-years old.

The actress has since been an activist for sexual abuse survivors, and in a new interview with People, she sends her support to Lady GaGa and Kesha, two stars who have most recently spoken out about their stories.

Don't mess with this dangerous woman!

Kesha is currently wrapped up in the largest legal battle in all of Hollywood, and while the courts aren't necessarily making things easy for her, most of her fellow pop stars have been busy voicing their support.

We've already heard how strongly Ariana Grande feels about her Dr. Luke lawsuit, and she's only getting even more outspoken about sexual assault.

The 22-year-old stopped by The NEW 92.3 AMP Radio on Wednesday to chat about her new album and title track Dangerous Woman and ended up discussing misogyny outside of the entertainment industry, saying:

THIS Awful Men's Shirt From Forever 21 Seems To Be Making A Joke Out Of Rape

This is really not okay.

Forever 21 really messed up this time.

For some reason, the retailer decided to sell a graphic tee that appeared to poke fun at rape culture. The garment-in-question is a white, men's T-shirt with bold, black words that say:

"DON'T SAY MAYBE IF YOU WANT TO SAY NO."

As if the message itself wasn't horrible enough, it was, in fact, printed in all caps, as if to REALLY burn the offensive, upsetting, and insensitive words into our brains.

Sure, the fashion chain has had its share of scandal in the past, but this one definitely takes the cake.

We really can't wrap our brains around the fact that the company's big wigs decided it was a good idea and a smart move to make a MEN's T-shirt that seems to be mocking rape and consent.

Ch-ch-check out what might be the worst shirt ever made (above).

We're happy to say that Forever 21 has seen the error of its ways — probably in the form of angry emails and social media comments — and has since removed the horrible piece of clothing from its site.

The retailer said in a statement:

Ariana Grande Continues To Stand Up For Kesha During Her Legal Battle With Dr. Luke!

Ariana's got Kesha's back.

Ariana Grande is standing by Kesha.

The pint-sized pop princess previously voiced her support for the blonde after she lost her injunction bid to get out of her recording contract with Dr. Luke, the producer who allegedly raped and abused the 29-year-old.

The soulful singer told Carson Daly on 97.1 AMP Radio's The Daily Download that she's still strongly supporting the TiK ToK performer, saying:

"I love Kesha. I worked with her when I was a lot younger. I support her, regardless of what's going on."

She continued to say that the backlash that the star has received amid her ongoing legal battle with the Sony songsmith raises some serious concerns about the way women are treated, adding:

The incredible double standards that we [women] face on a daily basis, in the industry and just in the world, it's shocking. I would be so amused, and pardon me if this comes across as sexist, but I don't think a male artist would be in this position right now. Sorry."

But the Dangerous Woman remains unapologetic about that potentially controversial comment, confessing:

"If I'm speaking out about something I'm passionate about, I'm willing to take the brunt for fighting for what I believe in. And my fellow women are definitely something that I will always be one of the first to speak up about."
