Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – After Dr. Luke’s label, Kemosabe Records, retracted the approval that Kesha will be performing this year at the Billboard Music Awards, it seems that the two parties were able to work out an agreement as she is back on again.
Kemosabe Records said in a 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.”
The statement added that they were able to assure that Kesha , her representative, and Dick Clark Productions, which handles the 2016 BBMAs , that the singer or her supporters will not be using the event as a platform thus the approval being restored.
The approval comes after Pebe Sebert , Kesha’s mother, took to Twitter a series of tweets. She claimed that her daughter had no right to perform at the BBMAs because she was a woman under a male producer. Sebert also said in her tweets that Kemosabe records wants to drag her daughter in the legal dispute until she becomes broke thus the then-retraction of Kesha’s performance at the BBMAs .
A spokesperson for Dick Clark Productions also released a statement saying that they are pleased Kesha and Kemosabe Records have reached an agreement. Kesha is set to perform in the annual event on Sunday evening.
Kesha took to Instagram to celebrate her good news with a quote that reads “You and I are more than friends, we’re like a small gang.” She thanked her supporters by adding in the caption the following statement: “good work animals. looks like our voices can be heard after all.”
Kesha will be honoring Bob Dylan by performing her version of “It ain’t me babe.”
