Fiona Apple Calls Out Grammys for Nominating Dr. Luke After Kesha's Allegations

Fiona Apple is calling out the Grammys.

The Fetch the Bolt Cutters singer-songwriter spoke out against the Recording Academy in an interview with The Guardian regarding its treatment of ousted president Deborah Dugan and nomination of Dr. Luke at the 2021 Grammys.

“I’m waiting to hear more about what Deborah Dugan has to say because that all reeks to me. When you hire somebody and they raise questions and then they get fired? There’s a lot of things that she brought up that make it so that I can’t vet that situation and I don’t really wanna go there and support it,” she said of Deborah Dugan, who alleged sexual harassment and a “boy’s club” culture in her legal complaint of the Grammys’ nomination process before being ousted.

Fiona also called out the organization for nominating Dr. Luke, or Lukas Gottwald, who is nominated for his work with Doja Cat (“Say So”) under the new pseudonym Tyson Trax as well.

Although he has defeated several Kesha-related lawsuits against him regarding allegations of abuse, he has ongoing defamation and breach of contract cases against Kesha, and her allegations led him to work under different names.

“They had [Kesha] up there singing ‘Praying’ and now they’re gonna go: ‘Oh, but it’s Tyson Trax!’” Fiona said of the organization.

“I keep going back to them putting Kesha on stage like, ‘We believe you’ — and I believe her — then two years later, f–king Tyson Trax…not to go back to that word, but it’s bulls–t,” she continued.

“I don’t know if anybody who’s nominated can help having the thought: What would I do If I won? My vision was that I would just get up there with a sledgehammer and I wouldn’t say anything, I would take the Grammy and smash it into enough pieces to share and I would invite all the ladies up. My second thought was I wonder if I can get all these ladies to boycott this s–t because of Dr. Luke.”

Fiona Apple is among the nominees at the 2021 Grammys. Find out who else is nominated.

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 itakeresponsibility.org,” 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.

Kesha Speaks Out in Support of Black Lives Matter, Calls Out President Donald Trump

Kesha is speaking out.

The 33-year-old “Tik Tok” singer posted a message on social media on Saturday (May 30) amid protests around the country against police brutality and white supremacy following the murder of George Floyd.

“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…
