Kesha thanked her fans for protesting outside Sony Music New York. The star’s fans were protesting after she lost her bid to terminate her record contract.
The six album deal in her contract forces her to work with her producer Dr. Luke. Kesha stated that the producer sexually and emotionally abused her.
Her protesting fans held signs that read “Dr. Luke is really whack, Kesha needs her freedom back!”
One of her 19 year old fans stated “This is very emotional for us, To see Kesha go through this is heartbreaking. This will keep going on until Kesha is free.”
The singer legally requested to be released from the contract but the judge rejected the request.
Her Lawyer, Mark Geragos, thanked her supporters on twitter and shared a short video of the star.
The footage was captioned “A special thanks to everyone who has had her back,”
The star expressed her gratitude to fans on Facebook by saying “This case has never been about a renegotiation of my record contract – it was never about getting a bigger, or a better deal,” she wrote. “This is about being free from my abuser. All I ever wanted was to be able to make music without being afraid, scared, or abused.
“I think about young girls today – I don’t want my future daughter – or your daughter – or any person to be afraid that they will be punished if they speak out about being abused, especially if their abuser is in a position of power,” she added.
