Kesha Responded To Her Canceled Appearance At The Billboard Music Awards

Kesha has cleared the air about her plans for the 2016 Billboard Music Awards with a post on Instagram after Dr. Luke and Kemosabe Records reportedly blocked her performance because it would address their prolonged court battle. According to the pop singer, she was set to perform a Bob Dylan tribute by covering “It Ain’t Me Babe” that didn’t have “anything at all to do with Dr. Luke.”

“I just wanted to make very clear that this performance was about me honoring one of my favorite songwriters of all time…

“I was never going to use a picture of him, speak of him or allude to my legal situation in any way. I simply wanted to sing a song I love to honor an artist I have always looked up to.”

When Dick Clark Productions released their statement about the situation, they expressed “hope that the parties can come to an arrangement” and now Kesha has publicly told her side of the story. Perhaps it’ll be enough to placate an agreement between the parties to gain approval for the performance. The 2016 Billboard Music Awards simply wouldn’t be the same without the 29-year-old singer.
