Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Kelly Clarkson is clearing up her comments she made earlier this week against Dr. Luke when she appeared on the Australian show “Kyle & Jackie O Show.”
Clarkson said in her interview that the label, under Dr. Luke, once blackmailed her. She shared, “The last time I worked with him I got blackmailed by my label. They were like, 'We will not put your album out if you don't do this.' It was really hard for me. I try to make the best of the situation.”
However, people said that Clarkson currently works with RCA and many believed that she was talking about that label in her recent remarks about Dr. Luke. She then took to Twitter to clarify her comments saying: "Want to clarify that my current regime at @RCARecords is not the same one who forced me to work w/Dr. Luke. Peter Edge is rad & a good dude!" Edge is the chairman and CEO of RCA Records.
Dr. Luke has worked with Clarkson on her hit singles such as “Since U Been Gone” and “My Life Would Suck Without You.” The “American Idol” Season 1 winner said that she did not experience what Kesha claims, which are being physically, emotionally, and sexually abused by Dr. Luke as well as being drugged by him, but the mother of one noted that she thinks the producer is not a good person and that he is difficult to work with.
A publication has reached out to Dr. Luke and his team regarding the comments of Clarkson. A spokesperson for the producer then said that Clarkson and Dr. Luke did clash from the star citing an excerpt from another musical producer, Max Martin’s, book “The Soundtrack of My Life.”
The spokesperson wrote: “It was hard for Kelly, who had come from the high of winning American Idol and then having a double platinum album. You're young, everybody recognizes you everywhere you go. It's heady, and all that attention affects all Idol winners.”
