To recap the drama between the artist and her label: Kesha is seeking freedom from her existing record contract because it, in effect, will require her to collaborate with Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald, who she has alleged has abused her.
"We're protesting at the courthouse to drive home that Sony needs to listen to more than 107,000 petitioners who want to save Kesha's career and human rights," protest organizer Michael Eisele said, according to The Huffington Post. "Pop music fans are sending a clear message that they won't stand for Sony's completely unethical and inhumane treatment of a woman who was brave enough to speak up about sexual abuse."

The video, directed by David McClister, was filmed at Nashville's Sambuca Restaurant and the city's iconic Hermitage Cafe. Fans headed out to see Young on the road will get to hear the pair play the song live.
"I had gone out of my way to grab her on the tour, we knew that was going to be the next single," Young explained at the No. 1 party for "I'm Comin' Over." 'It's one of those things where I was so lucky to get someone with a voice like that on the track. It such a vocally powerful song. It's range-y. I don't know if you guys have ever heard her sing live and in person, it sounds like her record. It's incredible. She's doing a high c sharp on the record. It's nuts. I'm pumped. That's something we'll be able to give people when the single's fresh, when it's new, when they don't know it yet, as well as -- hopefully -- six months from now where it won't be a big deal."

'I am thrilled to start this year by releasing new music!" Clark said in a press release. 'The response to 'Girl Next Door' from both my concert audiences and the country radio stations I have visited has been so positive and strong. I can't wait to share it with everyone."

TMZ caught Ghostface Killah on the street, where he called Shkreli a "sh-thead." Ghostface seemed less upset that their album now belonged to him, and more upset about what Shkreli did to the price of AIDs pill Daraprim. "You don't take some AIDs pill that you have for what $7 and then make it like $800," he said.
When asked how he felt about Shkreli as a person, Ghostface Killah said, "I don't even know him, you know what I mean? But when I heard what he did with the AIDs [medication] like that, that's not right, that's not right."
As for the album, Ghostface said he'd love to see it in the hands of the people, but admitted, "It's out of my hands, man." Shrekeli purchased Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for $2 million in December. He was later arrested for securities fraud. Watch Ghostface Killah here.
Confessing her deep devoted fandom to all things Paramore, Moretz said of Williams, "She's amazing." Moretz and host Grimmy performed a karaoke duet version of the band's song "Still Into You." But before they got around to singing, Moretz confessed,"[Williams] has a very difficult voice to sing along with."
That might explain the two false starts before she really gets into the song. It's not exactly the best, ahem, performance, but you can tell Moretz is having a blast singing along with "Still Into You." Watch it here.
My song "Bad Influence" is obviously about eating something that's not good for you, but you just can't hold yourself back and you indulge anyway - haha. Nah, it's actually about being so attracted to someone that it drives you crazy. It consumes your mind and it distracts from all the things you should be doing. So good but so bad - I think my fans can relate.
I actually wrote "Bad Influence" with my best friends in the band Emblem3. When we wrote, it was a casual session. We just started jamming and it felt super natural. Lyrics came easily, as we all had experienced a girl like that in the past 6 months or so. The ripping saxophone that defines the song actually used to be electric guitar, until we stumbled across the sax sound and all were like "AHHHHHH THATS IT!"
Also, the 2nd verse was the first time I had ever sang it. It was my "scratch" vocal reference, and we just ended up liking the character and raw sound of the take. We also tried adding different things to the song (instruments and effects), and we kept thinking "simple is better".
I'm super thankful for all the positive feedback I've been getting. So glad my fans like it and are into it! Nothing like that feeling in the world!!!
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
