Adele’s public supports for Kesha sends some text to other female artists, it has been claimed.
The British singer stormed the recent BRIT awards in London, taking home four awards just months after she returned to music.
As well as wowing having a performance of her new track When We Were Young, Adele also used her time on stage to declare her support for fellow singer Kesha’s ongoing legal battle against Sony Music and producer Dr. Luke.
“I’d love to take this moment to publicly support Kesha,” Adele told the group when she accepted the Best Female gong.
A music insider tells Britain’s Grazia magazine that it was a huge moment for females in music.
“For Adele to utilize her platform with the BRITs sends an email to other female artists that – whatever label ties they’ve already – they shouldn’t hesitate to stand up first another,” the trainer told us.
Kesha recently lost her bid to be removed from her contract at Sony. The court case came into being after she filed a sexual abuse lawsuit against her one-time mentor and producer Dr. Luke in October, 2014, accusing him of subjecting her to a lot of sexual, physical, verbal and emotional abuse.
However the judge dismissed the preliminary injunction she sought to sever ties using the music firm.
Sony bosses have claimed they’re “not competent to terminate the contractual relationship between Luke and Kesha”, but are making it feasible for her to record with no connection with all the producer.
After legal court ruling Kesha, 29, latched onto her Facebook page to vent her anger.
“This case has not been in regards to renegotiation of my record contract – it absolutely was never about acquiring a bigger, or possibly a better deal,” she wrote. “This is all about being devoid of my abuser. All I ever wanted ended up being to be able to make music without having to be afraid, scared, or abused.”
