- 02/21/16--20:30: Demi Lovato not impressed with Taylor Swift Donation to Kesha
Since Kesha filled a lawsuit against Dr. Luke, people became more aware of his actions in the music industry, and Kesha wasn't the only artist who had problems with him. Here is a list of a few artists who had trouble with him and his actions and behaviours in the music industry.
In 2014, Kesha filled a lawsuit against her alleged abuser, Dr. Luke, in Los Angeles. Kesha says Dr. Luke manipulated her career over the years. Dr. Luke induced her of droping out of high school and leave her life behind at age 18. Kesha details how she signed up with Dr. Luke's music production company in 2005 and came under the thumb of a producer whose "despicable conduct" included bragging how he liked to get girls drunk and have sex with them and blackmailing his pregnant wife into getting an abortion by not speaking to her for six months and threatening to leave.
Kesha also says that Dr. Luke abused her, and forced her to snort illegal drugs and gave her "sober pills," which Kesha says were really a form of gamma-hydroxybutyrate, more commonly known as the date rape drug. On one occasion, the lawsuit reports that "Ms. Sebert took the pills and woke up the following afternoon, naked in Dr. Luke's bed, sore and sick, with no memory of how she got there. Ms. Sebert immediately called her mother and made a 'fresh complaint,' telling her that she was naked in Dr. Luke's hotel room, she did not know where the clothes were, that Dr. Luke had raped her, and that she needed to go to the emergency room."
On other ocasions, Dr. Luke made fun of Kesha's weight calling her a "fat fucking refrigerator" and made her develop bulimia, making Kesha think about ending her own life.
Dr. Luke has been sued multiple times on his career, but the one lawsuit that caught the public's eyes was copying one of the most famous and widely-used percussive beats in music history.
New Old Music Group sued Dr. Luke for the “breakbeat” in the Jessie J hit “Price Tag,” claiming it was directly lifted from the 1975 song “Zimba Ku.”
Court documents allege the similarities between Dr. Luke’s “Price Tag” and “Zimba Ku” come in the form of (via Scribd) “sixteen consecutive 16th notes on the hi-hat cymbal, a bass drum pattern consisting of two 8th notes on the first beat of the measure, followed by three syncopated notes on beats 2 and 3, snare drum attacks on beats 2 and 4 and a ‘buzz’ on the snare drum at the end of the measure.”
Dr. Luke’s attorneys have since argued that use of the individual aspects from the drum pattern from “Zimba Ku” is so widespread, there’s no definitive proof of copyright infringement.
Judge Ronnie Abrams, however, takes issue with this defense. He said, “The court disagrees. While many of the individual elements of Zimba Ku may be commonplace, Defendants have not shown that, as a matter of law, the combination of those elements in the drum part is so common as to preclude any reasonable inference of copying.”
Listen to both songs below
Dr. Luke is known for chopping parts of other songs and giving it to singers as something "new', Butch Walker, Pink's frequent producer, wrote a book where he said that Pink almost jumped at Dr. Luke at a party and how she refuses to work with him again for doing this. The story goes by: "Dr. Luke apparently is known for chopping up old songs on Pro Tools and changing the smallest part necessary to consider it a new song. So he chops up an old song he did with another artist. Gives it to Pink. Basically selling the same song twice. But she didn't know until after the song was out. And she was pissed. She confronted him about it and told him to F off she would never work with him again. He says she never liked him in the first place but was working with Max and this guy was brought it." The song in question was P!nk's 'U & Ur Hand', who sounded extremely familiar to The Veronicas '4ever'.
Becky G was signed to Dr. Luke's Kemosabe Records in 2011 after seeing her covers on Youtube. In 2015, a twitter user made fun of Becky G by eating donuts, and she responded saying that the user sounded like Dr. Luke.
Producer Dr. Luke would not give Charli XCX her the time of day because she wasn’t a big name and, but she came out with the smash hits “I Love It” and “Fancy”, he decided she was worth his time. In the song 'Sucker', Charli responds sarcastically with the ‘love it’ and ‘sick’, calling him a ‘Sucker’ because he missed his chance to work with her.
One of the lines in “Sucker” goes, “You joined my club/Luke loves your stuff.” Charli said that people would always come up to me and say, “Oh, Dr. Luke loves your stuff, well done”—as if that means, “You’ve made it.” That’s fucking weird to me.” The tweet below is allegedly directed to him.
"she better lose some weight if she wants to be a popstar" - gross/ugh/lol— CHARLI XCX (@charli_xcx) 15 junho 2014
An inside source once said that Demi Lovato worked with Dr. Luke on a song called 'Break a Sweat' for her album Confident, he said that if Demi didn't make it as her lead single he wouldn't give it to her. They argued so much that Demi left the studio and Dr. Luke gave the song to Becky G. Many other artists reportedly experienced the same issues while working with him. Demi Lovato once talked about this issue, but didn't say the producer's name. Check it out here.
Kesha's mom, Pebe Sebert, claims that producer Dr. Luke is attempting to blackmail her. In a series of tweets, the singer's mom unloads her frustration. “Dr Luke is trying to BLACKMAIL ME, into taking my name off ‘Timber’ as a songwriter, by blocking all 16 writers from being paid,” Sebert writes. “NOW, 2 years since TIMBER was a hit, my punishment for ‘TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT HIM’, is to be responsible for everyone not being paid!”. Check the tweets below.

Are you ready for Rick and Michonne to finally bang at the end of the episode, ontd?
*Brad, not to be confused with Bobby, who testified against his uncle Steven in 2007.
- In 1985, Gregory Allen attacked and sexually assaulted Penny Beerntsen near Lake Michigan shoreline
- Crime was pinned on Steven Avery, who spent 18 years in state prison until DNA testing exonerated him
- Allen was never charged in relation to the Beerntsen attack, but was sentenced to 60 years in prison for "kidnapping, sexual assault, and burglary" in 1996
- According to Wisconsin's Offender Database, Allen is eligible for a parole hearing on October 24, 2016
In a new interview with TheLipTV (below), Zellner was also vocal about her intentions "to prove who actually killed Teresa Halbach," asserting that "it is fairly obvious if you review the record of the criminal case." She elaborated, "They did not look at a lot of other suspects, certainly some very key people they should have been looking at. There was a very poor investigation done of the victim’s background, who she was involved with, the circumstances of her life. It had all of the hallmarks of a wrongful conviction case."
- Brant Daugherty, of Pretty Little Liars and Lifetime movies fame, has been cast in the third Fifty Shades of Grey movie "Fifty Shades Freed"
- He's playing Luke Sawyer, some guy in Christian's security team who's specifically tasked to look after Ana
I agree with the assessment from people that he's hotter than Christian Grey BUT I'M BIASED. No word yet on my dreams of him as Multiple Man yet, but fingers crossed ontd~ hold me in your prayers as I go through this trying event.

Britney’s ex jailed after beating girlfriend, dragging her by the hair! https://t.co/WrTyIW9yWQ
- Alexander, 33, attacked his gf after they'd been drinking at her San Francisco home. The dog growling at him apparently set him off.
- As she tried to flee he “grabbed her by the hair and dragged her down the steps … along the sidewalk and threw her into the bushes.”
- “He grabbed her head and threw it into the kitchen counter.”
- The victim can be heard screaming in terror on 911 audio, along with begging him not to kick the door down

- KAT-TUN's new single Tragedy managed to take the top spot this week on the Billboard Japan Hot 100, CD Sales Chart, & Anime chart
-- KAT-TUN (pronounced like "cartoon" without the r) is a Johnny's Entertainment male idol group originally named for the first letters in each member's name. However, their numbers have dwindled from 6 to 4. Also, one of their current members Taguchi Junnosuke announced he would be leaving shortly. The group is expected to have a hiatus after their 10th anniversary tour ends in May. Their current single is the theme song to the anime Kindaichi Case Files R (Returns).
- Battling it out on the Album Charts was BUMP OF CHICKEN with their album "Butterflies." They managed to steal the top position from girl group E-Girls and their album "E.G. SMILE -E-girls BEST-"
-- Formed in 1994, Japanese rock band Bump of Chicken (sometimes called just "Bump" or "BOC") has a strange name, which is supposed to mean something along the lines of "pushback from the weak." According to Oricon sales (2014) estimates, they've sold over 13 million CDs, making them one of the biggest bands in Japan. "Butterflies" is their first album in nearly 2 years.
-- E-Girls is a girl group consisting of 20 members from subgroups Dream, Happiness, and Flower. The E part of their name refers to their relationship to Exile as its sister group, using the model of considering both vocalists and non-singing dancers as a part of the official group. "E.G. SMILE -E-girls BEST-" is their first compilation album, and includes all their major singles thus far, plus a few new songs. They also put out a music video for the album-exclusive song "DANCE WITH ME NOW!"
- Sandaime J Soul Brothers and Perfume both announced their new albums, THE JSB LEGACY and COSMIC EXPLORER, would be released on March 30th and April 6th, respectively.
-- Sandaime J Soul Brothers (also known as Sandaime J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE) is a boy band from the LDH label that also hosts Exile and E-Girls and uses a similar formula for its makeup. "Sandaime" means "3rd generation" in that there have been two previous incarnations of J Soul Brothers before this. Their biggest calling to success is their single "R.Y.U.S.E.I" which has been on the Billboard Hot 100 for nearly 90 weeks now and still going. Their latest single from their new album is "Unfair World" but their biggest single to be included in this album will be the Afrojack-produced "Summer Madness."
-- Perfume is a 3 member girl group produced by Yasutaka Nakata (who also produces Kyary Pamyu Pamyu) that uses vocoders for their vocals. Perfume's new album will be their first in about 2 and half years. Their latest single to be included in their upcoming album is "STAR TRAIN"

--Discusses murders and violence in Wisconsin

Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I'll be impressed.— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) February 22, 2016
-Demi went on a 2:30 AM rant saying self-proclaimed feminists needed to speak up and liked a tweet asking why Taylor wasn't
-Kesha's mom announced Taylor donated $250,000
-Demi tweeted that she'll only be impressed if she takes something to Capitol Hill or actually speaks out
Demi also liked this saying that "money isn't everything"
@ddlovato money isn't always the answer— Miranda Michalak (@MirandayyM) February 22, 2016
Is impressing Demi Lovato more important than how Kesha and her mother feel? It's very clear that Kesha's mother is happy about the donation and that's more important than Demi or anyone not approving of calculated intentions . This should be about Kesha and the support she deserves. Justice for Kesha and to hell for Dr. Luke. Also @Perez, since you may be reading, I KNOW you've been tweeting stuff about how it's POSSIBLE that Kesha is lying and that there needs more evidence and shit. You were also "defending" Taylor from someone who asked if she is gonna show support before this with a tweet saying Kesha's lawyer lied about Gaga. I hope your fav, Taylor, showing support means that you'll stop spewing nonsense. :)
