Kesha’s Cancelled Billboard Performance Is Now Back On And Here’s Why
Kesha can now pay tribute to Bob Dylan.
Earlier this week it was revealed that Kesha’s upcoming performance at the Billboard Music Awards had been cancelled after Dr Luke’s Kemosabe Records rescinded approval of the performance.
However, in yet another turn of events, the True Colours singer has now been allowed to take to the stage this Sunday after the label changed its mind.
Explaining why they briefly put a stop to the performance, Kemosabe Records released this statement: "Kesha’s performance on the Billboard Music Awards was always approved, in good faith.
“Approval was only suspended when Kemosabe learned Kesha was to use the performance as a platform to discuss the litigation.
“Now that Kemosabe has obtained assurances, that it is relying upon, from Kesha, her representatives and Dick Clark Productions that neither Kesha nor her supporters will use the performance as such a platform, the approval has been restored."
Kesha, who will be taking part in a segment honouring Bob Dylan, explained in an Instagram post that she had never intended to use the stage as a platform to talk about her ongpoing legal dispute with her former producer.
She wrote: "I just wanted to make very clear that this performance was about me honoring one of my favorite songwriters of all time and has never had anything at all to do with Dr. Luke," she wrote on Instagram.
"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. thank u all for the continued support."
