  5. It's a shame that whatever agreement she signed probably prevents her from saying more. She is entitled to drag the living daylights out of some people, I think.

  6. No offense, but as someone who studied language evolution as part of my graduate school training, this is actually a somewhat reductive take. Yes, there's a lot of overlap between contemporary gay lingo and Black vernacular language, including phrases used more often by women. But there is simultaneously a lot of contemporary gay lingo that originates in queer subcultures, and is NOT used by non-queer Black women. Rather than attributing "most gay slang" to Black women, it's more accurate (and imo, interesting) to consider how language in POC-dominant queer spaces is taken up by white gays, which then speeds up the process of the language being adopted into the mainstream. My final point is that language is fluid and always evolving anyway, so I think attribution games are not particularly worthwhile. The beauty of language is that it can be picked up, revised, and adapted to various groups, both minoritarian and majoritarian. Like we can talk about when "wig" started being used in queer subcultures, but we can also talk about how the French popularized the term in the 16th century, which they likely adapted from a Latin term.

  12. Her misogynistic deranged fans have no problem shooting poppers up her nose without her consent so I don't see her statement making a difference. Just another display of how "The Gays" really see women as just a vessel for their unresolved Regina George complexes. God knows this site has plenty of those.

  17. Um…because Chappell is blowing up with old songs that are on that album. Sabrina is blowing up with new songs that don't have an album yet. This comparison can't be made until August when Short n Sweet is out

  20. There is an alarming amount of uninformed and tone-deaf takes already in this thread from a certain fanbase, so let's clean some things up. 1. "Katy has nothing to do with what happened between Kesha and Dr. Luke" There is probably no person in the entire music industry that has more to do with it. Katy has known both Kesha and Dr. Luke for an almost equally long time. Kesha and Katy have known each other since before Kesha even debuted. There are pictures of them partying together in 2007, Kesha appeared in the IKAG video, Kesha has an unreleased song called "True Love" for which Katy has credits. Katy said: "I love my friend Kesha" in her 2017 Witness livestream. Katy testified in her deposition that she saw Kesha over a dozen times in her life. Her being a literal witness (pun intended) in the case merely comes on top of all this. 2. "Kesha selectively attacks Katy and not other artists" It should be self-explanatory that Katy Perry deciding to go back to Dr. Luke in 2024 is an entirely different scenario than the likes of Kim Petras, Latto, Lourdiz and god knows who else is currently working with him. Besides the obvious personal connection between Kesha and Katy, Katy was not just one of, but Dr. Luke's most successful (pop!) artist ever who used to work with him long before the lawsuit even began. 3. "Katy has shown solidarity with Kesha" At no point in time has Katy ever shown any kind of solidarity with Kesha whatsoever. Katy testified in her deposition that she decided not to work with Dr. Luke on Witness out of fear for her reputation and not out of solidarity with Kesha. Dr. Luke testified that Katy told him he'd have to "sit this one out". "This one" being Witness. In sum, everything points to Katy never actually wanting to stop working with Dr. Luke and especially not permanently. Her behavior stands in massive contrast to Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Kelly Clarkson, P!nk, Adele and others who all have more or less directly supported Kesha in public or revealed their personal issues with Dr. Luke. Katy's deposition is filled with tone-deaf remarks like "Dr. Luke deserves to have a big ego, he has over 20 #1 songs" that are totally out of place in the context of a person you allegedly disapprove of. The fact that Katy gave interviews talking about her "healthy relationship" with Dr. Luke throughout the lawsuit for no apparent reason further undermines the "solidarity" narrative. 4. "Kesha settled the lawsuit, she has no business now shading Katy" This is perhaps the most twisted and insensitive talking point. First, it is wild to use a settlement against a defendant - who by default does not wish to be involved in a lawsuit, let alone go to trial. On a basic level, it is nonsensical to suggest Kesha deciding to settle a case she never wanted to defend herself against to begin with (let alone for nine years) instead of entering a massive trial against one of the most powerful people in Hollywood must prevent her from continuing to have an opinion on topics that are related to her and the lawsuit. Second, this notion completely ignores the fact that this lawsuit ended because Dr. Luke was smart enough to settle his own case after it became clear he would not win a jury trial. You can not spin a plaintiff realizing it's time to end a frivolous case into a defendant's loss. Third, it is quite extraordinary to suggest that a legal conclusion of the lawsuit somehow precludes any kind of moral decency standards for a person that has known both Kesha and Dr. Luke for over 15 years. A legal outcome does not dictate the rules for decent behavior. 5. "Kesha lied about Katy" This talking point should have been retired long ago, but apparently it's still necessary to point out that Kesha neither "invented" nor "spread" false rumors about Katy. Both Kesha and Lady Gaga testified that Interscope CEO John Janick told them that Dr. Luke raped Katy Perry (which @georgechxng could have known if they decided to actually familiarize themselves with the topic they are commenting about) which Kesha then referenced in a private text message to Lady Gaga. Said rumors not being true does not convert them into a lie absent proof of malice for which Dr. Luke has shown none and he possibly couldn't have done so in light of Lady Gaga's corroboration. Likewise, the word "spread" implies a new audience which does not exist in the case of a private 1:1 text message to one person who was already familiar with the story at hand. Dr. Luke himself created the new audience when he decided to include this issue in his amended complaint. You can say that Kesha shared a false statement she believed to be true, but she absolutely did not lie or invent fake stories and there is also no legal basis for such claims. 6. "Kesha recanted her statements" This remark is completely baseless, as Kesha has always maintained from the very beginning of the lawsuit and throughout her deposition that she was unconscious while Dr. Luke raped her because he had given her a "sober pill" in advance (the latter of which is referenced in documents as early as 2006). This is what she would have testified at the jury trial if it had taken place. Therefore, Kesha did not "recant" anything when she said she can not remember everything (not anything) about the night at issue in her final settlement statement.

  22. What exactly was awkward about their encounter? Are we just making things up now? Also, her boyfriend doesn't just walk away mid-conversation. You can tell by Camila's body language and the fact she says "have fun" that they were about to go their separate ways.

  34. Her penmanship is insane and she once again showed one of my favorite features about her — she writes relatable, quality lyrics that always impacts you on first listen more than others without using wordy, showy, overcomplicated dictionary'd cringe words, there's no verbosity. Like she just dropped VERSE OF THE YEAR on a random remix? Thoughts???? Can't wait for L4 which will be album of the decade
