After Kesha’s recording contract with Dr. Luke was upheld in court on Friday, several celebrities have taken to social media to rally behind her.
The New York Supreme Court denied an injunction that would prevent Dr. Luke -- whom Kesha claims drugged, raped, and emotionally abused her -- from interfering should she sign with another label. The decision effectively keeps the 28-year-old singer contractually obligated to Sony Music Entertainment.
During Halsey’s sold-out show in Glasgow on Friday night, she dedicated her empowering Badlands anthem “Hold Me Down” to Kesha, yelling, “To Kesha Rose!” before launching into the song.
According to Genius, Halsey once explained the meaning behind “Hold Me Down” at a 2015 show, saying, “This song is a reminder that no matter how small you are or how small people may make you seem, you should never let anything hold you down.”
Earlier in the day, Halsey tweeted about the "toxicity" of Kesha being forced to work with her alleged abuser.
