Dr Luke Denies Katy Perry Rape Accusation From Kesha: ‘Malicious Falsehoods’

Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald has denied he raped pop superstar Katy Perry, after a report emerged that signer Kesha accused the music producer of assaulting Perry in a lawsuit.

“Katy Perry herself confirmed that Dr. Luke did not rape her. Kesha’s accusation to the contrary — just like her other outrageous lies about Dr. Luke — is baseless and irresponsible, and it is disrespectful to both Katy Perry and Dr. Luke,” lawyers for Gottwald said in a statement on Wednesday.

“In his defamation lawsuit against Kesha, Dr. Luke seeks damages for the harm caused by these malicious falsehoods,” the statement concluded.

Reps for Perry did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment on Dr. Luke’s statement.

The rape accusation was uncovered in ongoing proceedings Gottwald is engaged in against Kesha, who was his protege and signed to his Kemosabe Records before she herself accused him of sexual and emotional abuse. The Blast first reported the Perry accusation, wherein Kesha is said to have sent text messages to colleague Lady Gaga about Gottwald’s alleged misconduct.

The text message in question, according to The Blast, saw Kesha tell Gaga that Gottwald had “raped Kathryn Hudson [professionally known as] Katy Perry.”

The accusation surrounding Perry is now the third point of contention in Gottwald’s suit against Kesha, whose hits include “Tik Tok,” “We R Who We R” and “Your Love is My Drug.”

Gottwald denies he drugged the singer, and also that he sexually assaulted her, as she has previously accused him of doing. The producer says he suffered losses from working on future Katy Perry projects of roughly $10 million, as well as harm to his reputation.

It’s unclear how much he seeks in damages overall. The case is still being argued in New York state.

Moby Calls Out Grammys Artists: ‘Musicians, You Have a Voice, An Audience, And You’re Wasting it’

Techno artist and animal rights activist Moby wasn’t at the Grammys Sunday, but he was watching — and he didn’t think the artists at the awards ceremony were doing a very good job selling important messages.

Moby called out the artists taking part in the 60th Annual Grammy Awards on his Instagram feed, posting a blank white image that contained only the text, “Dear Musicians” on it. In the caption on the photo, Moby wrote, “Dear musicians, I’m watching the Grammys and only @trevornoah has had the courage to say anything relevant or political. The unrelenting shameless self promotion is fucking grim. Musicians: you have a voice, an audience, and you’re wasting it. So shameful.”

Many of the artists at the Grammys wore white roses to show their solidarity with women who have faced sexual harassment and sexual assault, especially in the workplace. The white roses followed similar pushes at other award shows this month. Stars wore black at the Golden Globes in support of the #TIMESUP movement, that supports women fighting sexual assault and harassment in the workplace. Many also wore #TIMESUP pins at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Later in the show, the Grammys pivoted to some more important, political fare, and Moby amended his comment.

“Update: as the night progressed a few people did use their platform to speak about meaningful things and not just indulge in shameless self promotion,” he wrote.

Those meaningful things probably included a moving speech from Janelle Monae before she introduced a performance by Kesha. Monae specifically addressed the huge number of women recently coming forward to accuse powerful men in the entertainment industry and beyond of sexual assault and harassment.

“Tonight, I am proud to stand in solidarity as not just an artist but a young woman with my fellow sisters in this room who make up the music industry,” Monae said. “Artists, writers, assistants, publicists, CEOs, producers, engineers, and women from all sectors of the business. We are also daughters, wives, mothers, sisters, and human beings. We come in peace, but we mean business. And to those who would dare try and silence us, we offer you two words: Time’s up.”

Kesha’s performance of her song “Praying,” was also a huge political moment. The song was Kesha’s first release of new music for nearly four years, after her legal battle with former producer Dr. Luke, who Kesha alleged had drugged and sexually assaulted her. She was joined in performing the song by Cyndi Lauper, Julia Michaels, Camila Cabello, Andra Day, and Bebe Rexha and the Resistance Revival Chorus.

Every Grammys Musical Performance Ranked, from Kendrick to Kesha and Beyond

The 2018 Grammys were a powerful event full of powerful performance, but it also had some extreme lows. Scroll through to see who we thought gave the best and worst performances of the evening.

20. Eric Church, Maren Morris and the Brothers Osborne turned what should have been an incredibly touching moment — in which they paid tribute to those killed at concerts in England and Las Vegas — into the joke of the evening with an excruciating rendition of Eric Clapton’s “Tears in Heaven.”

19. Sting and Shaggy represented a cycle that seemingly occurred over and over again throughout the Grammys: a couple of great performances would make the show feel like it was really moving, and then an incredibly boring performance would ruin the flow. Sting and Shaggy were perfect representatives of the wrong part of that cycle.

17. Sam Smith’s performance of “Pray” was just, like — we don’t even know. In a vacuum it was probably fine. In the context of this show it was extremely lackluster.

16. By the time Chris Stapleton and Emmylou Harris took the stage to play “Wild Flower” late in the show, we were simply not in the mood.

14. We have no technical complaints with Pink’s performance of “Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken,” but it just felt like something was missing. Like it lacked the power we usually expect from Pink.

12. Elton John and Miley Cyrus performing  a duet of “Tiny Dancer” represented the right kind of change of pace in between powerful anthems and energetic dance numbers: just a regular fun, unexhausting rendition of a song we all like, by artists we all like.

10. SZA was a blast as always. Better than good, but not quite reaching the heights of those who are higher on this list. We bet she’ll move up next year, though.

9. On the tail end of an inspiring speech from Camila Cabello about Dreamers, which concluded with her reading the poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty, U2 performed “Get Out of Your Own Way” on an outdoor stage with Lady Liberty in the background. It was as impeccable as every U2 performance is, and the context Cabello provided added some meaningful heft to the whole thing.

6. Lady Gaga’s performance of “Million Reasons” was the first of many heartfelt performances Sunday night, and it shouldn’t be forgotten just because 73 hours of Grammy performances came after it.

3. Childish Gambino gave a performance that was so strong it’s tough for us to articulate it without sounding idiotic. It’s just one of those you really needed to have seen to understand its power.

2. Kendrick Lamar’s Grammy ceremony opener was one for the ages that even a brief, pompous appearance by Bono and the Edge couldn’t mar. “Damn.” didn’t win Album of the year but some small consolation is that he blew away nearly everyone else who took the stage Sunday night with this performance.

And Kesha? Wow.

1. What can we even say about Kesha’s emotional performance of her survivor anthem “Prayer”? We can’t do it justice, so we’ll just say this: about 30 seconds into the performance we knew that none of the other artists would be able to create a moment like this one.

Grammys: Janelle Monae and Kesha’s Time’s Up Moment Inspires Tears

Janelle Monae’s introduction of Kesha’s performance at the Grammys Sunday night provided one of the most dramatic and emotional moments of the night, as Monae, wearing a Time’s Up pin, called for an end to pay inequality and injustice.

“We come in peace, but we mean business … And to those who dare try to silence up, we offer you two words: Time’s Up. We say Time’s Up for pay inequality, discrimination or harassment of any kind, and Time’s Up for the abuse of power,” Monae said.

“We have the power to undo the culture that does not serve us well,” she continued. “So let’s work together, women and men, as a united music industry, committed to creating more safe work environments, equal pay and access for all women.”

Kesha then performed an emotion rendition of her song “Praying,” which was nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance, featuring Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Andra Day, Julia Michaels and Bebe Rexha.

The women wore all white, and the performance was punctuated with tears from the singer, who sued her producer Dr. Luke (née Lukasz Gottwald), in October 2014, accusing him of sexually and emotionally abusing her. He has denied the accusations.

Bebe Rexha Had a Wardrobe Malfunction at the Grammys and Almost No One Noticed

Singer Bebe Rexha had a minor wardrobe malfunction as she appeared on the red carpet at the Grammys, but judging by Twitter fans continuing to share the photo, almost nobody actually noticed it.

Rexha was walking the red carpet Sunday at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden in New York when the top of her dress slipped down slightly, right in front of photographers. Apparently, Rexha handled it so deftly that almost no one knew the malfunction even happened. It was also a subtle-enough wardrobe issue that many people continued to share the photo on social media without realizing what it showed.

At the 60th Annual Grammys, Rexha is set to perform during the awards ceremony. She’s joining Kesha, who is performing her song “Praying” during the ceremony, along with several other artists. Andra Day, Camila Cabella, Cyndi Lauper, Julia Michaels and the Resistance Revival Chorus will also perform with Kesha on the song, the Los Angeles Times reported.
