DEBUT: Follower Collaboration Playlist! Vol. 1

The first ever playlist collaboration has been made! The theme/question was:

“THE LAST SONG YOU LISTENED TO.”

Yesterday I had a #QuestionOfTheDay that asked follwers of The Pop Pyro on Facebook to leave a comment of the last song by a female pop artist they listened to. I then compiled all of the responses and made a Spotify playlist so that everyone can see what each other are currently listening to! It boasts over 2.5 hours of music for your enjoyment! And naturally, it includes a large block of Britney Spears tracks. But it also includes a ton of dance hits and some delightful throwbacks! This turned out to be a great playlist to refer to when you can’t decide on what to listen to. It has everything! 

Check out and FOLLOW the playlist below!

Make sure to participate next month in my next playlist collaboration!

Dr. Luke’s Lawyers Just Released a Statement Regarding #FreeKesha

In a detailed response against the “popular hashtag,” Dr. Luke’s legal team released this statement to the press today (Feb. 22):

The New York County Supreme Court on Friday found that Kesha is already “free” to record and release music without working with Dr. Luke as a producer if she doesn’t want to. Any claim that she isn’t “free” is a myth. The sound decision Friday by the Court in denying Kesha’s motion for an injunction made it clear Kesha’s allegations of purported abuse were unconvincing and that she had no basis to void record contracts and copyrights. Dr. Luke and his companies invested in Kesha’s success through their contributions, Sony Music has already spent over $11 million promoting Kesha, and Sony Music and its label Kemosabe Records are committed to continuing to promote her work.

More significantly, the Court also noted multiple times that her vague abuse allegations were devoid of factual detail, and that there was no evidence, whether from doctors or anyone else, to support them.

Tellingly, Kesha never reported any purported abuse or rape to any law enforcement authority, or even to Sony Music, and further swore under oath in another matter, while accompanied by her team of lawyers, that it never occurred. The goal of Kesha’s counsel throughout has been to obtain a more lucrative contract through a shameless campaign of outrageous claims they will never stand behind in a court of law.

As Dr. Luke has said repeatedly, the allegations against him are outright lies that have been advanced to extort a contract renegotiation and money. Kesha and her counsel have cavalierly subjected Dr. Luke and his family to trial by Twitter, using a vicious smear campaign to ruin his reputation for financial gain while failing to support their claims. Kesha to date has never verified the allegations in this case -even when given the opportunity in her affidavit. Nor has she ever offered a credible explanation as to why she would have signed a second recording agreement, recorded two albums and an EP and signed a publishing deal with Dr. Luke after allegedly being sexually abused. It will further be shown that the incidents alleged never happened. 

This statement gives a firmer understanding of the judge’s decision to deny her sanctity from her recording contract with Dr. Luke this past Friday (Feb. 19).

The narrative of Kesha‘s label and legal problems continue with no end in sight. What are your thoughts on this statement from Dr. Luke’s legal team? Let me know here in the comments and follow The Pop Pyro on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
