Kelly Clarkson tweeted her careful support of Kesha when the Kesha v. Dr. Luke story first grew to grab national attention last month. Clarkson did more insinuating than explaining, but she left little doubt about how she felt. What Clarkson didn’t include in her Dr. Luke criticism were facts. An artist, Clarkson was artful about her statement:
Trying 2 not say anything since I can’t say anything nice about a person… so this is me not talking about Dr. Luke https://t.co/lLhtUHbmgG

Then Clarkson made huge news this week telling an Australian radio station that her label had “blackmailed” her into working with Dr. Luke, which she would have preferred not to do. This time she got more specific, calling Dr. Luke a “talented dude” but saying “he just lied a lot” and was “kind of demeaning.” Still, Clarkson left out details about Dr. Luke’s lying besides saying “Musically it’s been hard for me because he will just lie to people.” What Clarkson did do with her comments was practically nominate herself to be called as a witness for Kesha’s legal team, which will want more details as it tries to paint a villainous picture of Dr. Luke for a jury.
