Lada Gaga was recently interviewed by Carson Daly and she once again spoke out in support of her dear friend, Kesha. If your head has been buried in the sand, then you may not know that Kesha is in the middle of a law suit with Dr. Luke. She says that she was drugged and raped by the music producer. Dr. Luke is denying the allegations and counter-suing her in exchange for breaking their contract.
“I think that people should just know that there’s so much more than what meets the eye in a case like that,” said Gaga, 29, who herself has was raped at 19. “I feel like she’s being very publicly shamed for something that happens in the music industry all the time, to women and men. I just want to stand by her side because I can’t watch another woman that went through what I’ve been through suffer.”
Last month a judge denied Kesha the ability to record new music without Dr. Luke while the suit is still pending.
“I talk to her every day. I’m friends with her personally, and what I’m watching her go through is not only something I’ve been through but something that’s really devastating to witness. Somebody that has such a beautiful light within them, so much talent to give – just to see that light burn out because they feel that no one’s listening to them, I feel that it’s my responsibility to stand up for her when there’s a lot of people that are not listening to her plea for love, for people to have compassion and empathy.”
Kesha has a number of famous supporters in addition to Lada Gaga. Adele and Taylor Swift have also pledged their allegiance to the Your Love Is My Drug singer.
Lady Gaga vows to stand by her friend’s side. “We’re going to shake the tree until that leaf that has Kesha on it falls. I care about her.”
She added that the music industry does not protect its artists. “In any other business, if you were to report that anything happened to you to the human resources department, it would be dealt with. But we don’t have a human resources department, we don’t have a union as artists, we’re just fighting for ourselves. If we don’t stick together, our voices just won’t be heard.”
