Back in 2017, Katy was deposed in Kesha‘s battle against the producer, in which Kesha accused Dr. Luke of rape. At the time, Katy said she was afraid of being publicly attacked for being “the one woman that is against women” if she took a public stance.

“I knew both of them at the time. It sucks when you know both of the players. I can only speak for my own experience, and my own experience [with Dr. Luke] was a healthy one. I believe in due process. And I also believe that only they know the truth.”

She also spoke out about her defense of Ellen DeGeneres.

Celebrities Create 'Take Responsibility' Racism PSA, Resulting in Backlash

Stars are coming together to “take responsibility” for racism – but not everyone is impressed with their call to action.

The video, made in partnership with the NAACP, features stars like Kristen Bell, Aaron Paul and Debra Messing speaking about white privilege and taking responsibility to call out racism.

“I take responsibility for every unchecked moment, for every time it was easier to ignore than to call it out for what it was. Every not-so-funny joke. Every unfair stereotype. Every blatant injustice no matter how big or small. Every time I remained silent. Every time I explained away police brutality or turned a blind eye. I take responsibility. Black people are being slaughtered in the streets. Killed in their own homes. These are our brothers and sisters. Our friends. Our family. We are done watching them die. We are no longer bystanders; we will not be idle. Enough is enough,” they say.

“Confluential Films and the NAACP have partnered to launch the impact-oriented campaign, I Take Responsibility, where influential voices from the white community take responsibility for turning the racist tide in America. #itakeresponsibility,” the video’s description reads.

While some have appreciated the message of the video, others compared it to the widely criticized “Imagine” celebrity singalong video amid the pandemic, criticizing it as an empty display of performative allyship amid global protests condemning racism. Others also mocked their behavior in the videos, comparing it to an audition for a role.

Here are Black Lives Matter resources to help support the cause.

“I never felt like it was my place to comment on the issue of racist police brutality, and that is part of the problem. What is happening in this country right now is horrific. The murder of black people, because they are black, by law enforcement, or anyone else is a tragedy every time. I have never had to fear because of the color or my skin, and I know that’s something I will never understand. That’s white privilege,” she wrote.

“Racism has never been okay, yet it is part of the history of this country, a sickening part. Racism is very much alive and fueled by a president who calls white supremacists ‘very fine people’ and then threatens protesters with being shot in a time when so many are suffering. It’s embarrassing, nauseating, and infuriating. Being a white person, I know I will never understand how racism feels. I stand for equality and I can’t just be silent while the president encourages violence and does nothing to help heal people’s suffering but rather makes it worse. What is happening right now is bigger than a hashtag. Black lives matter. George Floyd matters. Spread LOVE not hate.”

This fellow pop star also called out the President of the United States…

Judge Rules Kesha Defamed Dr. Luke by Claiming He Raped Katy Perry

Kesha has been in the middle of a legal battle with Dr. Luke for years now and he just scored a victory in his case against her.

Dr. Luke sued Kesha for defamation over a claim she made that he raped Katy Perry while texting with Lady Gaga.

Katy was deposed and she denied that she was ever raped by Dr. Luke. Now, a judge has ruled that Kesha defamed the music producer because of the publication of this text message.

“Kesha made a false statement to Lady Gaga about Gottwald that was defamatory per se,” Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Jennifer Schecter wrote in a decision Thursday (via Page Six). “There is no evidence whatsoever that Gottwald raped Katy Perry. Moreover, publication of a false statement to even one person, here Lady Gaga, is sufficient to impose liability.”

A jury must now decide at trial if Kesha defamed Dr. Luke.

The judge also ordered Kesha to pay Dr. Luke over $373,000 in interest because she was late in her payment of $1.3 million in royalties to the producer. Her counterclaim that served as her request to be released from a contract with his record company was rejected.

“Dr. Luke is pursuing this lawsuit to seek recovery for the serious harm Kesha’s false accusations of rape have caused Dr. Luke, his family and his business,” his lawyer Christine Lepera said in a statement. “Dr. Luke looks forward to the trial of his case where he will prove that Kesha’s other false statements about him were equally false and defamatory.”

Kesha had previously sued Dr. Luke for alleged sexual and emotional abuse, but she dropped her case.
