Dr. Luke And Kesha's Mother Address Defamation Case Dismissal

(Radio.com) Dr. Luke has dismissed his defamation lawsuits against Pebe Sebert (Kesha's mother). On Friday, the two parties issued a joint statement via the producer's representative, in which Dr. Luke maintains his innocence, and Sebert acknowledges that she has no first-hand information regarding the incident in question.

The larger legal battle between Dr. Luke and Kesha will continue in New York. The full statement from Dr. Luke's representative reads "Dr. Luke vigorously disputes and denies that he ever raped Kesha Sebert, and he is asserting claims of defamation in a New York court against Kesha Sebert for making statements to the contrary, which statements Dr. Luke adamantly maintains are false.

"Pebe admits she has no firsthand personal knowledge of the events occurring on the night of the alleged rape. Pebe was not present that night. At that time, Pebe was in Nashville, and Kesha was in Los Angeles. The dispute between Kesha and Dr. Luke about the events of that night is the subject of the New York case, and will be decided in that case. Accordingly, all parties believe it is appropriate to dismiss this Tennessee case and focus their attention on the New York case." Read statement from Sebert's counsel here.

Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds Bares His Soul Online

(Radio.com) Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds has spent the last couple days baring his soul on Twitter. The singer released two lengthy notes to fans about depression, his marriage and his band's new album Evolve. Overall, it seems like the recording of Evolve stirred up some emotions that have been challenging for the artist to sort through.

"I write what I feel. I can't explain myself. I don't understand my head and heart most of the time," Reynolds wrote. "It feels like a puzzle that I just can never solve. I'm not put together. Music is the only thing that speaks for me. It always has. I can explain myself finally when making a song."

Reynolds credited his wife Aja with helping him overcome his demons--and described music as the perfect vehicle for exploring his feelings. "And even if I'm the only one that hears that song, it accomplished what it needed to," he added. "It made me understand myself. And to hear my thoughts over a musical soundscape to FEEL."

Nevertheless, Reynolds wrote that he hopes sharing his music with the world will move fans as deeply as it's moved him. "I want the world to be a passionate place," he wrote. "Hopefully compassionate as well, but I can only control my words and feelings -- not others. I hope you listen to this record and FEEL it. I hope you hear my voice and understand that every word is honest. I hope it brings you happiness. I promise to bring my full heart out on stage every night as we perform this record."

"It's not just about them utilizing the artists for their own benefit, it's a partnership for both. And you know it's fun, they're not trying to be anything other than Sprite. They're not competing with other brands for how they're gonna market it, it's just what they stand for. They're not trying to come across as an overbearing force, they're just trying to walk in tandem with the artist and the legacy of hip-hop," he says. Read more here.
