And another famous artist speaks our about gross, horrible Dr. Luke…
Kelly Clarkson opened up on Australia’s KIIS FM The Kyle & Jackie O Show,Â saying that her own experience with Dr. Luke, was pretty bad, so she can’t imagine what Kesha is going through. People reports:
“A lot of artists that have worked with him don’t work with him anymore for pretty good, solid reasons,” Clarkson said. “He’s not a good person to me. We’ve clashed. I can’t really say anything other than that.”
While she can’t comment directly on whether Kesha’s claims are true, she told the radio show that she “can remark on his character,” as the dude worked with her on 2009’s “My Life Would Suck Without You” and 2004’s “Since U Been Gone:”
“Unfortunately, that poor of character â€“ I mean so many artists don’t like you, don’t like working with you â€“ that’s not normal,” the expectant mom explained.
Clarkson alleged that the producer is “just not a good guy to me,” before contending, however, that “he’s a talented dude.”
“He just lied a lot … I’ve run into a couple really bad situations. Musically, it’s been really hard for me because he will just lie to people and it makes the artist look bad,” she said. “And he’s kind of difficult to work with, he’s kind of demeaning.”
Clarkson said she chooses not to collaborate him now, but did in the past because she was blackmailed by her label.
“Even the last time I worked with him I only worked with him because literally I got blackmailed by my label,” Clarkson said. “They were like, ‘We will not put your album out if you don’t do this.'”
The pop star said that while she’s never had Kesha’s “particular situation” happen to her, it’s not an uncommon scenario in the music industry.
“I’ve heard a lot of girls have had similar situations,” she said, stopping short of clarifying whether she was discussing a negative work environment in general or additional sexual allegations.
She added: “If it’s true I can’t imagine working with somebody like that.”
UGHHHH grooooossssss. Poor Kelly, but also, poor Kesha. Unfortunately, I think more artists really should speak out in order for Kesha’s plea to be heard.
What do you think about Kelly’s admission?
