Kelly Clarkson Says She Was Blackmailed Into Working with Dr. Luke

Kelly Clarkson Says She Was Blackmailed Into Working with Dr. Luke

Kelly Clarkson is opening up about her experience working with producer Dr. Luke and she doesn’t really have good things to say about him.

“He’s not a good person to me. We’ve clashed, but I can’t really say anything other than that,” the 33-year-old singer said on Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O radio show.

Some of Kesha‘s fans have criticized Kelly for not sticking up for the singer during her legal battle with the producer.

“Her fans are like, ‘Oh, why don’t you stand up for her?’ I wasn’t there. I don’t know what happened specifically in their situation. Obviously I wasn’t in the room. But I can remark on his character,” Kelly said. “Unfortunately when you have that poor of character, like so many artists don’t like you and don’t like working with you. You know, that’s not normal. I get along with everybody I work with. He’s just not a good guy for me.”

“Obviously he’s a talented dude, but he’s lied a lot. I’ve run into a couple of really bad situations, musically. It’s really hard for me because he’ll just lie to people, and it makes the artist look bad,” Kelly continued. “He’s kind of difficult to work with and kind of demeaning. It’s just kind of unfortunate.”

Some of the songs that Kelly has worked on with Luke include “Since U Been Gone,” “Behind These Hazel Eyes,” and most recently, “My Life Would Suck Without You” in 2009.

“The last time I worked with him, I only worked with him because literally I got blackmailed by my label,” Kelly said. “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 I tried to make the best of the situation.”

Listen to Kelly talk about the situation starting at the 1:23:40 mark below!

    Yes, her previous album she released with “creative freedom” flopped VERY HARD and label gave her new come back hit by music genius.
    So ungrateful.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    artists are posers greedy for media attention. they will say whatever make its way to the news paper stands.
    you can freely can find a lot of bad info about everybody but who says it?

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    She said a lot but said nothing.

    Plus, she is a liar, she is NOT get along with everybody she work with. Every her album surrounded by massive scandals about songs and her whining how bad people she worked with. Ryan Tedder, David Jost, Max Martin, Clive Davis are wasn’t happy to work with her and she had a lot of shit to say about them. The nicest men in business.

  • MK

    Who are you? His bitch?

  • Marie

    That is her opinion and even if he is a “vile” person it doesn’t mean he is guilty of rape.

  • Joher

    At least the pressure made her talk, now we just need other artists to do the same.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    She has a good reputation, a solid person. This looks REALLY bad for the Luke creep.

    Girl, you are making an ass of yourself following every comment on here just to defend Luke. You either work for him (or ARE him), or you have no life.

  • dalovelee

    This is a case of a corporation Sony protecting this sleaze bag. Without a doubt if he assaulted Kesha he did it with other new talent..And they were intimidated or afraid to reveal what happened.

  • Lili

    Girl, don’t you have a job or school instead of just badmouthing kesha and kelly ?
    Are you Dr luke niece ? Or do have a stalkerish obsession on him ? Maybe you had a taste of his rapist cock and want some more (STALKER). Anyhow. GET A LIFE.

  • Wendy

    Literally all you do is bad mouth Kesha, I’m beginning to think you’re Dr. Luke in disguise.

  • Wendy

    Was that label Sony? If it was, this isn’t good for them, they seem like they are really shitty towards artists. If it wasn’t Sony, then ignore my comment lol.

  • Gina

    Kelly isn’t greedy for anything, it was like pulling teeth to get her to speak on the matter in the first place.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Come on, she is the most scandalous singer nowadays. Always playing a victim.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Thank you for telling me what I really do!

    Kesha is a liar and I bet you didn’t read her lawsuit about “raping with refrigerator”. Am I right? All what you read about this story are headlights.

    following every two comments here. lol

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    I have a brain to check what Kelly saying is a victimized bullshit of big ego and eyes to read official lawsuit of kesha where she clearly said dr luke didn’t raped her.
    Sorry you are to stupid for reading long text.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Who are you? Her bitch?

    How stupid you are for thinking somebody will hire and pay money to anybody for commenting news on this little paparazzi photos site?
    Incredible stupid.

  • Lili

    Lol I didnt even say anything about Kesha. You need meds. ASAP.

  • Gina

    Get the heck outta here. You’re so ridiculous, always grasping at straws. What scandal is Kelly a part of?

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    I mentioned a few in first comment.
    You didn’t read post, didn’t read comments. You just have your important opinion based on nothing — “singers are gods and stuff”.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Maybe get the heck outta my comments so I 100% won’t reply to you? Or you are too stupid to understand it?

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    I said.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    You are typical bully. Instead of saying some facts you start attacking my personality.
    12 yo?

    Why you so obsessed with everything I say? Is truth hurts you so you are trying to escape truth into the thinking I’m ill? I’m not ill, I have brain and I don’t join a mob and mass bulling.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Yes, she didn’t started this topic, but I discussed things she said “she gets along with everybody”.

    It’s not true. She is not good. We can’t relay on her opinion that Luke is not good. It’s opinion. She knows it but she said what easy and pretty to say — “I’m good and everybody is bad”. I don’t believe in it.

    Hard to say — “I’m not perfect, I can’t make music, I’m singer, I have big ego and when I met producer who have ego too and don’t lick my ass — we don’t get along”.

  • Lili

    You are mentally ill.
    I don’t care what you say. You actually need help. Get off your computer or phone and go seek medical help.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    Well, YOU’RE here. On this “little paparazzi photos site’” spending an awful lot of energy and time telling everyone else they’re wrong.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    Oh, stupid, too. I see.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    At least you are not blind! Hooray!

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    If 10 seconds and typing 20 words is awful lot of energy and time for you… so yes, I do. I did and will do

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    You don’t care what I say so much so can’t stop sending me messages.

  • Lili

    Lol ok crazy

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Still can’t go away from commenting me?

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    The real story:

    Max and Luke are very strong, hands-on producers in the studio. They are intent on getting perfect vocal performances, and are relentless in that pursuit. It was hard for Kelly, who had come from the high of winning American Idol and then having a double platinum album. You’re young, everybody recognizes you everywhere you go. It’s heady, and all that attention affects all Idol winners.

    But then suddenly you’re in an entirely different world of making records in a studio, and you have to take direction. Kelly didn’t like it. Max and Luke were relentless in getting the right performance of their song. Kelly got her back up, and from her perspective, she had a horrible experience in the studio.

    You act brainwashed. Check facts before commenting.

  • Gina

    Nah, I have the feeling that you are determined to discredit and undermine anyone who has anything negative to say about your precious Dr. Luke.

  • Gina

    No, I think YOU are too stupid to understand your own ignorance, so I’m gonna take the opportunity to remind you of that every now and again.

  • Gina

    How many times are you gonna reply to one comment? Get all your thoughts out in the first go-round, honey.

  • Gina

    Gimme a break, the only one scandalous around here is you.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    If you want a break — don’t answer me. It’s easy to understand.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    I can’t edit comments in notification window. It’s easy to understand.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    it’s illogical. I think you feel I’m right but can’t admit it because it’s make you feel insecure.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Silly Lili.

  • Gina

    Nah, honey. I say what I feel, and I feel that you are dead wrong.

  • Gina

    Nah, honey. I say what I feel, and I feel that you are dead wrong.
