Kesha Speaks Out Says This Issue Is Bigger Than Just About Me

In a lengthy Facebook post on Wednesday, Kesha once again thanked fans for their support in the wake of her legal battles with music producer Dr. Luke. She wrote that this case has never been about a renegotiation of my record contract but rather, This is about being free from my abuser.

On Friday, a judge denied Kesha's request to release music outside of her deal with Dr. Luke who she alleges sexually abused her and his label's parent company, Sony Music Entertainment. Dr. Luke has denied Kesha's allegations.

In Kesha's latest statement, she wrote that she would be willing to work with Sony if they do the right think and break all ties that mind me to my abuser. Because Kesha's contract with Sony was negotiated through more than one party including Dr. Luke's record label, it's difficult for Kesha or Sony to change the terms without a court order.

Kesha is looking at things from a broader perspective, which she noted in her Facebook post on Wednesday. She wrote “But at this point, this issue is bigger than just about me. I think about young girls today, I don't want my future daughter or your daughter or any person to be afraid that they will be punished if they speak out about being abused, especially if their abuser is in a position of power. Unfortunately I don't think that my case is giving people who have been abused confidence that they can speak out, and that's a problem. But I just want to say that if you have been abused, please don't be afraid to speak out. There are places that will make you feel safe. There are people who will help you. I for one, will stand beside you and behind you. I know now how this all feels and will forever fight for you the way perfect strangers have been fighting for me. Yes, I am very much a feminist, but more than that, I am a humanist. I believe in supporting my fellow human beings in being SAFE
