Celebs in support for Kesha have tweeted heartfelt messages ranging from admiring her bravery, to stressing on the importance of women empowerment and equality for the sexes. Halsey wrote a series of tweets, saying QUOTE, “Disgusted by anyone in power positions abusing their authority. My heart breaks for Kesha and all people affected by this toxicity. Fuck. I don’t even know what I would do… I only hope she can find peace and find a way to continue to create express herself without fear.” Celebs like Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande and Lily Allen also tweeted Kesha their love, Gaga writing, “There are people all over the world who love you @KeshaRose. And I can say truly I am in awe of your bravery.” Lily’s tweet read, “My thoughts are with @KeshaRose today. I’m sorry you’ve had to endure this experience,” while Ariana wrote a simple heartfelt message, “My heart is with @KeshaRose.”A few newcomers to the music industry, including Bea Miller and Alessia Cara reached out saying, “the fact that kesha has to choose to either freely make music or avoid the person who abused her is outrageous and degrading #freekesha” and “really disappointing to hear about this kesha case. no one should be denied freedom from their abuser, nor freedom of their creativity.” Lorde also tweeted, “standing with @KeshaRose through this traumatic, deeply unfair time. send good vibes her way everyone.”Many stars although stating they do not know all the facts, are still sending Kesha love, including Jojo, Iggy Azalea and Sara Bareilles. The #FreeKesha has also gone viral thanks to Hollywood and the Twittersphere, with “Girl Meets World” star Rowan Blanchard tweeting only the hashtag, along with Chelsea Peretti, Jack Antonoff, Rose McGowan, Madison Beer and Tyler Oakley. Margaret Cho, who previously signed a petition in favor of Kesha also joined in on the hashtag. But many other stars are focusing on the underlying legal problem at stake, and are stressing the importance of women’s rights and self-proclaimed feminists who need to be taking a stand and speaking out. Rock duo Best Coast tweeted a series of tweets, writing, “If you don’t see why this Kesha issue is a big deal, you’re part of the problem. This is exactly why I speak up the way I do” and that this case is some “legal bullshit” to which Kelly Clarkson retweeted, also writing, “Trying 2 not say anything since I can’t say anything nice about a person… so this is me not talking about Dr. Luke.”Miley Cyrus posted an Instagram photo with a written letter saying “Kesha, I am so angry for you. They were wrong. I’m so sorry.” Taylor Swift showed her support in being the first celeb to give a generous monetary donation to Kesha to cover the legal fees, donating $250,000 to the cause. And Demi Lovato proudly stood up and showed her anger for Kesha’s loss in a series of tweets, first writing, “Frustrating to see women come forward with their past only to be shot down, not believed & disrespected for their bravery in taking action. Happens way too often. I’m ready for women to be taken just as seriously as men..” She went onto say QUOTE, “Someone tell me why anyone would ever feel brave enough to come forward if they are most likely to be ignored or called a liar? I’m also ready for self-proclaimed feminists to start speaking out or taking action for women’s rights.” Demi then went on to list all the things that women empowerment is and means to her.
