Kesha Taylor Swift

Last week a female judge in Manhattan denied Kesha Rose Sebert's request to terminate her Sony contract after the singer claimed she was raped by her producer, Dr. Luke.

The 28-year-old pop singer broke down and cried in open court when the judge told her Sony's commercial interests took priority over her personal safety and welfare.

Sebert claims she was drugged and raped by Luke when she was 18. She said she suffered ongoing physical and mental abuse for 10 years. But the judge said Sebert didn't prove her case.

Sebert's contract calls for her to record 6 more albums for her slave masters at Sony.

A number of celebrities stepped up to voice their anger and dismay at the judge's decision.

Pop singer Lady Gaga praised Kesha's bravery. And rapper Nicki Minaj unfollowed Dr. Luke on Twitter.com in a sign of support.

But only one superstar put her money where her mouth is: Taylor Swift reportedly donated $250,000 to help pay Kesha's attorney fees.

Sebert's mom, @grannywrapper, announced the donation on Twitter.com Sunday.

"When Taylor saw the heartbreaking courtroom photos of Kesha, it was then that she knew she needed to do something," a close source told Rolling Stone magazine.

The donation prompted Taylor's rival, Demi Lovato, to tweet she wasn't impressed.

"Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I'll be impressed," she tweeted.

Her unfortunate opinion caused Swift's fans to come for her by the busloads.

    Did Kesha produce evidence that she was raped? I'm not clear on this.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Based on what everybody posted on Friday, Kesha fighting Sony will be an uphill battle. Hope she can continue to do what she loves without this toxic producer. Good for Taylor putting some actions to her words.

    Mondays......

  • Mel

    Taylor hey Taylor if u reading this it's not too late I got some bills too girl call me

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Ha! I'm never ready for Mondays! Morning!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I'm not too familiar with this story. Does the contract specify that she has to work with him? Or is she looking for a way of working with him and the label? It's Monday I'm doing my best trying to keep up ??.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Morning

  • Luv Pitties

    Okay Demi you may not have that kind of money to donate but how about you stfu and follow your own advice.
    It makes you look petty and bitter.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Ok! Cut me a check too.

  • Mel

    Sheeiit im bout to slide in her DM and beg ?

  • _perfectly__incomplete__

    No idea

  • Meme81

    Morning, all. I don't understand why Demi is in her feelings. She might have a new album coming out or something. Controversy sells. Ask Beyoncé.

  • Mel

    No there was no proof of this not saying it didn't happen but without any proof and the fact that she only bring it up because she want out the contract chile I hope she don't hurt herself

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    I can't stand Mondays. Stupid level is High (orange). We're on our way to Severe (red).

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm pretty sure I don't like Demi Dovato. I think she is the same one that was in a fan's DM harassing her, calling her a fat whale and whatnot.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Ok I'm about to become her biggest fan. I need a little windfall ?

  • Mel

    What when was this ??

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I gather from the write up that she did produce some evidence. However, it was not sufficient to prove her claims of rape.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    I am so, sew, seaux sleepy. My sinuses have been draining like crazy and my eye and cheek was hurting, so last night I took 2 caps. Please tell me which foot of Baby Freebush chin checked me. I wake up to swollen chin and a bruise. A foot is in the vicinity. I KNOW this kid said, "You only get one shot. This is an opportunity of a lifetime." I look like that moon in the McDonald's commercial.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    A couple of years ago. My brother showed me the screen shot. She just kept going and going. I didn't really believe it at the time but now that I read this tweet...

  • Mel

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Always. It never fails SMH

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Demi, I was on my way to liking you girl but the way my petty is set up... I'll blacklist you from my playlist. Taylor can donate money if that's what she feels she should do. Taylor didn't announce her donation, Keshas mother did.

  • Mel

    Isn't she a recovering addict? Maybe she was doing it with glossy eyes and foamed mouth unaware she was bullying somebody. Either way there's something about her I just don't like and she always look constipated

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Kesha girl... you're going to be alright. Tik Tok is STILL one of my gym jams.

    On to not being shyt, this is the least dirty I have ever seen Kesha.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Sony offered to let her work with another producer, but she argued that they wouldn't promote any music not associated with Dr. Luke. Said he makes them more money than she does, so they have a more vested interest in him, not her.

    I feel Demi; few won't!
    I'm also confused by Dr. Luke's freedom, if he is a convicted rapist and abuser how is he free, and why is there no RO?

    She clean up well

    This is why I keep coming back: I enjoyed every ounce of shade in this post! ?

    I've been throwing trees at Demi Lavoto every since she stole my man! ?

  • Wildcat34

    Agreed. The information being provided is so vague. To me, that is really the end goal is to get out of the contract. Sounds like she may have been f*cking for tracks, which she isn't the first. But who knows. I hope all ends well for her.

  • PhenomenalWomanThatIsMe

    He's not! Kesha never made a criminal charge against him, that's why I'm side-eyeing this rape allegation in a contract dispute.

    And good luck to her; if PRINCE couldn't get out of his contract with Sony, I doubt she will.

  • Wildcat34

    Right. It just seems strange. If all is true, Jay-Z better be careful...Rita Ora is trying to get out of her contract too, so she might produce some evidence.

  • PhenomenalWomanThatIsMe

    But, then again, Prince is a Black man, so never mind...

  • Wildcat34

    Demi, probably along with many in the industry is tired of Taylor Swift coming to play captain save a ho with money. It's basically self promotion for her as well. Taylor Swift enjoys attention.

  • Fendi

    Take me to ItSugar. ????

    Taylor Swift's ubiquitousness irritates the f$&k out of me, but she seems to be a sweet girl.

  • felinelurker

    But the thing is (from what I'm reading), she (Taylor) didn't publicize it. Kesha's mother did.

  • 1/8

    Prince's contact dispute was with Warner Bros., not Sony.

  • 1/8

    I bet you can't go five seconds without being racial.

  • Wildcat34

    Kesha's mother published it, but not without Taylor's blessing of course.

  • the guest

    Then Taylor Swift's donation is helpful, BUT WHAT SHE NEEDS is Taylor Swift to produce her next album. Taylor Swift is more powerful than and makes more money than Dr. Luke.

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    I see Taylor partially caved under pressure. And as always, you conservatives, love praising your princess. Whatever. She has been under attack since the verdict to tweet her support. Instead of speaking out, she chose to silently donate. I get it. Why tweet support when you know not what really happened. The fem mafia is ruthless. Also self serving. I don't see them running to the side of...I'm just saying. There are women currently under attack by America...American cops...Where are the fem bots?!! Same place they are when my First Lady is under attack, too busy not shaving their under arms??

  • the guest

    Rape is common in the music industry. Gang rape is common in the music industry. Producers are never held accountable. Never. That's why she did nothing.

    And her back story is so heartbreaking. I am so happy for her and like Michelle said, I want to be like her when I grow up!!

    I understand common place and that in it self is sad and a shame. I don't want to victim shame, I really don't. It just seems odd

  • Full Monty

    Good for you Taylor. Demi need to sit her self down somewhere. Taylor didn't have to donate but she did and it wasn't about Demi being impressed. People are so funny and stupid at the same time.

  • Fendi

    It is. And that's why someone should tell that failed abortion, AARP card carrying, "oops" baby that shim better hit that corner and get its throat game up because the 1st of the month is right around said corner.

    he could finally move his head again. <<< Rofl. Real tears. Why did I immediately visualize this.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Idk it was weird. I couldn't believe someone that was supposed to be famous would do that. So, yeah drugs would be a good excuse.

  • Fendi

    Go brush your teeth with A&D ointment and gargle with something other than random Johns' DNA samples.

  • PhenomenalWomanThatIsMe

    That is truly horrible. They are taken advantage of young people who think that's the only way to get a record deal. If that's the case, that's all the more reason she should have gone to the police. I wonder if she can still do it now.

  • That’s Interesting

    Funny and stupid. Yep. Had a conversation like that with somebody yesterday. Trying to determine if I want to stop talking to this person or not.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Demi's issues with Taylor Swift go back some years. It started around the time she was dating Taylor's ex Joe Jonas. Supposedly Taylor didn't like her because of that and then Demi's best friend at the time Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift became besties. She felt like Selena chose Taylor's friendship over hers and that Taylor purposely became friends with Selena on some Mean Girls get back at my ex's new chick by taking her friend thing. Demi was also deep in her drug and alcohol issues at the time. She did an interview about it not too long ago...I thought they were all cool now. I guess not.

  • Fendi

    Because I actually have one. And the same God you claim not to know or believe in can see the devil in you. You aren't a devil because you're an atheist. You're a devil because you don't serve any purpose other than to be antagonistic and divisive. And you have the audacity to call others into question, like you have the authority to do so.

    Like I said upstairs, get your T-cell count WAAAY UP before you address me again.

  • MzFutureLCSW

    You can not TELL Help HOW to Help.
    Just by giving the money, Taylor Swift has helped immensely. She has to try to cover herself, so she can remain profitable. The ones who are willing to be vocal, be vocal. The ones that can afford to bless her with cash, do that.
    Again, you can NOT tell Help HOW to Help.
    ( It is ungrateful and manipulative.)

    In the rape culture they call it "trains", much like gang initiations but for recording contracts instead. You are privy to much as a paralegal for an entertainment law firm. It is a sick industry. This Kesha woman is not lying.

  • the guest

    Not just young ladies, young men too. This Kesha case has started a dialogue that's been swept under the rug for far too long. Dr. Luke is a rapist but Sony rewards him for it. All the labels cover up and reward rapists. Get a job at an entertainment law firm and keep your ears open. Everyone wants a hype job but the law firms hold all the truth.

    That describes you perfectly. I hope Oprah Winfrey will bless you with a scholarship to Weight Watchers. That's the only way you can get snatched. Lord knows a grown man can't lift your "My 700 lb. Life" looking azz.

    Lil Wayne was 11 years old made to have s-ex with an adult woman who was a call girl in a crowded room of grown rappers and label owners. No matter how much he says he loved it. He was exploited to gain access to the industry. He was by law raped as a child. His case is just one of the less violent examples.

    No, I don't. But I'm certain you have two chins, on a light day. I'm also certain your anus echoes when you sneeze. And when it echoes, the men who fell down that cavern try desperately to escape.

  • Liri

    Ke$ha is signed to Dr. Luke's label and she is trying to void her contract so she can be under a different branch of Sony. Like typical assault victims, she did not come forward immediately and because of his position of power she was probably too intimidated and ashamed to know what her rights were. Sony wants her to keep recording and claims she can do so without having to directly work with him... Even though that would still mean she'd be working for him as his artist. Bleh. Ke$ha has documented drug and alcohol abuse issues that likely are related to coping with her affiliation with Dr. Luke. The music industry has a big problem with sexual abuse and producers taking advantage of Aspiring artists (men and women). It's nice that Taylor donated money, she probably knows how shady record labels are. I really feel bad for Ke$ha- it's a struggle to try and do something you love but have such a stressful trade-off attached.

  • http://www.beautyisland.weebly.com Indigo

    Thank you for coming with the real. Too many peole don't know what happens, and wonder why artists have so many mental issues.

  • TheRealLee

    She is not an isolated case and there is no recourse for these victims other than to find other ways to make their music sold. She needs to pursue the sexual assault case. If Cosby has to go to court to answer the accusations, so does Luke.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Good luck to Ke$ha

  • sealsaa

    So she brings it up in the midst of this situation. What a sad, petty little girl.

  • Meme81

    But, I guess it's just me-but I don't care what other ppl do with their money. Burn it for all I care. She kind of showed her hand when she said she doesn't have as much money as Taylor. Well that's not Taylor's fault.

  • Monday

    She had some evidence but the court decided it wasn't enough. The trial lasted for years. We only heard the last part. Try to sue Sony who controls media, police and court.

    And don't you think she was the only one... But she was the only one to fight..

  • Monday

    The fact that Lady Gaga support Kesha means a lot. lady gaga tried to quit the music industry but now is back on.. Hummm I wondet why??

  • S. Williams

    I'm gonna repeat this for you: "it makes you look petty and bitter."
    this is a classic Brittney/Christina "feud" she has with Taylor. Clearly Demi's voice is eons past Taylor but Taylor is the bigger star. Back when MTV produced real shows, Christina said "people used to tell me all the time Brittney is big but you're better you can be bigger. They wanted me to rush my work but I told them I would get mine when the time came." and she DID. same with Jessica Simpson. Demi needs to just humble herself and operate in her own lane. how can you see the road ahead of you constantly staring at your side view mirrors. her ass gon crash and burn

    It doesn't matter her star status, Taylor clearly did a good thing (and I don't like either one of these brats) and Demi who has contributed nothing on any level towards this situation has the audacity to say she isn't impressed.
