For the NY suit, the 29-year-old artist is appealing an April ruling that negated her rape accusations, and her attempt to get out of her contract with Luke's label, Kemosabe Records.

For the past two years, the former collaborators have been involved in a bitter legal battle that has damaged both of their careers. However, the We R Who We R singer is determined to get back on track.

According to her lawyer Daniel Petrocelli:

"We have conveyed to Sony Music and the label Kesha's strong desire to release her next album and single as soon as possible."

She's already sent 28 songs to her label.

We just hope Kesha can get back on her feet! We need to hear new music ASAP!

The New Ghostbusters Song May Be A Stinker — But These Are The 10 WORST Movie Theme Songs Ever!

no title

Ghostbusters is hitting theaters this weekend, and while the female led Sony reboot is getting positive reviews despite all the online hate — there's one thing we can all agree on…

That new Ghostbusters theme song is pretty AWFUL!

ICYMI, Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott remixed the beloved Ray Parker Jr. tune, and fans did NOT have nice things to say about the strange pop-metal version.

This isn't the first time the Ghostbusters theme song was remixed into a lesser version of the original, either. Run-D.M.C. accomplished a very similar feet for Ghostbusters 2!

Sadly, there are quite a few more movie songs that should never have made the film's soundtrack — like MC Hammer's Addam's Groove for the 1991 big screen debut of the Addam's Family — which is so bad, it makes Fall Out Boy's Ghostbusters sound like Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On! Ha!

Ch-ch-check out our full list (below) to see the WORST movie songs from Will Smith, Vanilla Ice, and even Kanye West!

Ghostbusters Review Roundup — Funny Feminist Action Or Flimsy Fan Service??

no title

The new Ghostbusters surely ain't afraid of no ghosts… but should they be afraid of film critics??

After getting an unnecessary amount of flack from self-appointed protectors of the original film and misogynistic Internet trolls, the highly-anticipated Sony reboot is finally hitting theaters this weekend!

To the delight of its defenders, the Paul Feig comedy is scoring generally positive early reviews — but that's not to say the gender-swapped reboot didn't have any ghastly misfires.

Even the critics who praised the film's heavy laughs and action agreed it suffered the overbearing presence of the original 1984 film — and sacrificed good storytelling opportunity for fan service. (Way too many cameos!)

Some critics also noted that leads Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig didn't have the same magic as they did in past Feig collabs like Bridesmaids and Spy — but the presence of Leslie Jones and scene stealers Kate McKinnon and Chris Hemsworth made up for the lull in chemistry.

All in all, the reviews say audiences can expect a summer blockbuster full of spooky fun with a side of girl power — but maybe not much that's going to stick with you…

Ch-ch-check out the review roundup (below)!

Beyoncé Sued For Stealing Lemonade Trailer From Short Film! Check Out The Visual Similarities & Decide For Yourself!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersBeyonceYouTubeMS MRSony

no title

A week before Beyoncé rocked the world with Lemonade, she posted a trailer for the visual album on YouTube.

But according to a new lawsuit filed by an independent filmmaker, the high profile trailer totally ripped off his 2014 short film!

Matthew Fulks, who describes himself as both an indie filmmaker and creative director at Louisville based news station WDRB, claims Sony Music, Columbia Records, and even Bey's Parkwood Entertainment were aware of his short film Palinoia before filming Lemonade.

In the complaint, Fulks claims after being contacted about the opportunity to direct a video for the Columbia-signed group MS MR, links to Palinoia were sent to Columbia Record's Bryan Younce — who has been credited on Bey's self-titled 2013 album.

The lawsuit alleges that in July 2015, Younce sent Fulks an email with an invitation to submit a treatment for consideration by Columbia.

Five months later, filming began for Lemonade. Hmmm…

Fulks believes several elements of the Lemonade trailer were jacked from Palinoia – including

Ben Folds Opens Up About Kesha's Dr. Luke Drama & Says Their Performance At The Billboard Music Awards Was Her 'Declaration Of Independence!'

See what Ben has to say about the Dr. Luke drama!

Kesha really is taking her life back.

On Sunday, the pop princess earned a standing ovation after slaying a powerful performance of Bob Dylan's It Ain't Me Babe alongside Ben Folds and violinist Rob Moose.

Everyone was eagerly awaiting the 29-year-old's time on the T-Mobile Arena stage, considering Dr. Luke had almost banned her from singing during the show.

On Monday, the former Ben Folds Five frontman opened up to Billboard about their emotional collaboration, explaining that the Sony producer screwed up their original plan by pulling the plug:

"We were slated to do it for weeks, and [last week] she was heading over to my house and we were getting ready to practice and I got the word that it was in fact canceled. Rob Moose [of yMusic], who played violin [at the BBMAs], and I had arranged it for a small chamber ensemble. And [during the Orpheum performance last week], it went over really well. But then we got the call: 'Actually, you're on [for the BBMAs], bring the ensemble.' 'Oh, we can't because they're all on airplanes now,' so Rob and I just pared it down."

But the 49-year-old admitted that the TiK ToK artist didn't have any intention of calling out her alleged abuser at the ceremony.

He explained why the singer kept her promise to leave the Kemosabe Records label head out of her TV time, saying:

Kesha's Mom GOES OFF On NY Judge Who Denied Her Daughter's Injunction After Dr. Luke Cancels The Singer's Billboard Music Awards Performance!

See what she has to say!

Kesha has already reacted to her cancelled Billboard Music Awards performance, but now it's her mom's turn to sound off on the controversial call.

And to say she's not happy is a HUGE understatement.

On Wednesday, Pebe Sebert took to Twitter to call out the people responsible for pulling the plug on her daughter's upcoming performance. And believe it or not, she's not taking aim at Dr. Luke — well, not directly.

The 60-year-old went on social media to completely slam the American legal system, firing shots at the New York judge who denied the pop star her injunction bid to get out of a contract with her alleged abuser.

And while the Kemosabe label head was the one who decided to yank Kesha from the show, the momma-of-three decided to place blame on the woman who allowed the Sony producer to continue controlling her daughter's career, writing:
