Kesha’s Mom Criticizes American Legal System On Twitter

“Money can buy anything, including legal rulings.”

May 19, 2016

Kesha was planning to perform at the Billboard Music Awards this Sunday. According to Dick Clark productions, she was only allowed to play with the permission of Dr. Luke's label, Kemosabe records. Luke and co. nixed the performance earlier this week.


Kesha's mother, Pebe Sebert, shared her thoughts on the situation last night via Twitter. She suggested that her daughter is a victim of sexist double standards—"Do you think that there is one male singer who could ever be 'not allowed to sing' on the Billboard Awards by another man?"—and that the American legal system is corrupt: "Money can buy anything, including legal rulings."

"Are KEMOSABE's actions today the actions of a record label that is trying to promote the success of their artist?" she wondered. "Wouldn't any record company fight to have their artist have the exposure to millions? Only if they wanted their artist to succeed!"

Representatives for Dr. Luke and Kesha were not immediately available for comment. See Pebe's tweets below.
