Demi Lovato says it’s f—ed up what Dr. Luke has done.
Demi Lovato says it’s f—ed up Dr. Luke won’t release Kesha from her recording contract.
Demi is not one to hold back, so naturally the “Cool With The Summer” singer spoke candidly about Kesha’s ongoing legal battle with Dr. Luke, among other things like her relationship with Latin lover Wilmer Valderrama and her support of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
“It wasn’t so much about Dr. Luke, that’s not my business what happened or what may have not have happened,” Demi tells Latina magazine. Dr. Luke refuses to dissolve Kesha’s legal agreement with Sony imprint label Kemosabe Records to allow her to record music elsewhere (Kesha and Zedd teamed up for “True Colors,” but with Sony’s consent).
“The important thing for me is that people are so afraid to come forward when they are sexually abused or raped because 1) it’s not something that’s easy to prove so you don’t want to go through the whole process and it drags it out. 2) Because it’s hard to prove people are so quick to dispel the rumors or not believe you and therefore nobody’s coming forward and change is only happening in a worse sense.”
Demi adds it was “extremely brave” of Kesha to publicly step forward.
“I do believe it’s very ****** up that he’s not letting her go, aside from all of the other stuff. I think women artists shouldn’t compete—we have to support each other.”
Switching gears, Lovato curiously mentions the “white guys” she dated in the past were lame.
“When I dated white guys, it wasn’t as passionate as my relationship with Wilmer,” she said. “Maybe that’s just Wilmer. But I do believe that Latin people are just more expressive, more passionate with their emotions. He’s very manly, and he can be stubborn like Latino men can, but he’s protective and he cares so much and loves so hard. I’ve been blessed enough to have him in my life, and not just as my man, but also my best friend.”
It’s also worth mentioning Lovato says she hasn’t reached her peak yet.
“I don’t care about radio hits,” she says. “When you try hard for that, it doesn’t happen. It’s songs like ‘Stone Cold’ that I don’t get tired of singing on tour. I get tired of singing ‘Give Your Heart a Break’ and even ‘Confident’ already. I have yet to reach my peak, and also, my voice is better now than it was a year ago. Now I can show people what I can do.”
