When Kesha lost her legal battle to Dr. Luke, the music industry cried out to help her. Female musicians from every genre spoke out about what a disgrace it was to force someone to continue to work with their alleged rapist.
Kelly Clarkson has worked with Dr. Luke for years, the two collaborating for the first time on her hit song 'Since You've Been Gone.' When it was announced that Kesha had lost her court case, Clarkson put up a tweet that indicated that she wasn't Dr. Luke's biggest fan either.
Trying 2 not say anything since I can't say anything nice about a person... so this is me not talking about Dr. Luke https://t.co/lLhtUHbmgG

Well Clarkson has elaborated on this tweet in a radio show with KISS 1065. She was asked her thoughts and branded Dr. Luke a bad person. She goes on to call him a liar and says she was blackmailed into working with him by her record label.
"They were like, 'We will not put your album out if you don’t do this.' It was a really hard time for me. And you know, we have a whole crew to support and people that depend on us for their livelihood, so sometimes you just have to make those decisions and swallow that pill."
While Clarkson says she can't speak to what happened to Kesha, because she wasn't there. She did say that he has lied to her and made her feel demeaned.
"He’s just not a good person to me. We’ve clashed. He’s just not a good guy to me. Obviously he’s a talented dude, but he’s just lied a lot. I’ve run into a couple really bad situations where, musically, it’s been really hard for me because he will just lie to people. And then it makes the artist look bad. And he’s kind of difficult to work with, kind of demeaning."
