Lady Gaga Stands Up For Kesha After Awards Controversy

Lady Gaga

(Radio.com) Lady Gaga has spoken up for Kesha once again. Following news that Kesha's Billboard Music Awards performance was yanked by record label management, Gaga responded with outrage; she retweeted a news link about the sudden change of plans and added a curt message.

Lady Gaga took to Twitter with the following: "Isn't it strange that it's legal to own a woman this way?" read the tweet. "Listen Ursula, we want her voice back. #freeKesha."

The Little Mermaid reference likens Kesha to Ariel, the titular mermaid and protagonist who trades her voice for a chance to live among humans above water. Ursula, the sea witch, sold Ariel a false bill of goods and exerted control over her body and choices. Read more here.
