Kesha says she “never wanted to go away.”
Kesha has made one thing abundantly clear: this is not her doing.
Kesha urged a judge to release her from her binding contract with Dr. Luke, who she’s suing for sexual assault and battery, but so far it’s a no-go. Because she refuses to create music with her alleged abuser, Kesha is stuck in limbo and can’t produce a new record. She fears an extended absense will ultimately destroy her career.
They said in filed legal docs obtained by TMZ that Adele, Justin Timberlake and D’Angelo’s musical hiatus worked wonders. They also claim they’ve invested more than $11 mil in Kesha’s career, who’s earned $3 million in royalties alone.
The news trickled over to Jezebel, who wrote the headline: “Sony Thinks Kesha’s Eventual Comeback Could Turn Her Into the ‘Next Adele,'” and it irked the “Blow” singer.
She posted a screen capture of the site with the caption: “** I love Adele, and this has nothing to do with her or any other artist** I never wanted to have a ‘comeback’ because I never wanted to go away. Making these comparisons is Sonys way of trying to put a positive spin on a horrible situation.”
