Kesha calls Taylor Swift a ‘fucking sweetheart’ for donating to her Dr Luke legal costs

Kesha has praised Taylor Swift for allegedly donating money to the legal costs relating to her ongoing Dr Luke trial.

The singer has been embroiled in a legal dispute with producer and former mentor Dr Luke (real name Lukasz Gottwald) since October 2014, when the singer filed a lawsuit in California against Dr. Luke citing “mental manipulation, emotional abuse and sexual assault” while also seeking to end her contract with Sony.

Dr Luke responded by counter-suing for defamation, and it was confirmed in August 2016 that Kesha’s case had been dropped so that the singer could focus on the defamation lawsuit.  In April of this year, Sony cut their ties with Dr Luke, then in July, Dr Luke summoned Lady Gaga to testify in his trial against Kesha.

A new interview with Rolling Stone now revealed that Swift donated $250,000 towards Kesha’s legal expenses, with Kesha saying that Swift “is a fucking sweetheart”.

Calvin Harris, Florence + The Machine Unhappy with Their Music Used at UK Conservative Conference

Florence + The Machine have said the Tories did not have permission to use their cover of Candi Staton‘s ‘You’ve Got The Love’ at the Conservative Party conference. Today is the final day of the annual event, which is being held at the Manchester Central convention centre.

As The Line Of Best Fit reports, Theresa May came on stage at the conference to Rihanna and Calvin Harris’ ‘This Is What You Came For’, while ‘You Got The Love’ was also played.

“Conservative party conference playing my song was not approved,” Harris tweeted. “I do not support nor condone happy songs being played at such a sad event.”

White Stripes Revisit 2000-Era Detroit Shows for Third Man Vault Package

The White Stripes Live in Detroit: 1999-2000-2001 finds Jack and Meg White performing at three different Motor City venues – the Magic Bag, the Magic Stick and the legendary Gold Dollar – in the era spanning from their 1999 self-titled debut to their breakthrough 2001 LP White Blood Cells.

Each live album in the three-LP set will be cut on colored 180-gram vinyl at Third Man Pressing in Detroit and “housed in a custom die-cut sleeve that stylistically deconstructs the Stripes’ album released the year that corresponds to the live performance,” Third Man Records wrote.

The set will also come with high quality reproduction prints of the Jack White-designed posters from each of the three shows: July 30th, 1999 at the Magic Bag, August 18th, 2000 from Magic Stick and June 7th, 2001 from Gold Dollar.

Billboard’s Next Big Chart Change Will Reportedly Incorporate Youtube Streams

As streams continue to become a more prevalent medium for music consumption, earning coveted Billboard spots and Grammy awards, the music industry continues to evolve both in how it manufactures and distributes music and how it calculates it as well.

Billboard has been on the cutting edge with the changes, adapting their metrics to include streams almost three years ago and now they’re about to be on the forefront of a controversial change as they will reportedly begin incorporating YouTube streams into their prestigious albums chart soon.

HitsDailyDouble reports that Billboard president John Amato has finally relented and decided to add YouTube views to the calculation metrics Billboard uses to decide the rankings of the 200 biggest albums in the country every week.

The change reportedly comes at the behest of music industry titan Lyor Cohen, who currently serves as YouTube’s Global Head of Music after leaving his post as president of 300 Records last year.
