Adele Support Kesha With BRIT Award Win

Kandywandy - 21:54:00
Adele won British Female Solo Artist at this evening's BRIT Awards, and took the opportunity to show her support for Kesha.

The singer was up against Florence + The Machine, Jess Glynne, Laura Marling and Amy Winehouse for the award, and her win surprised no-one.
During her speech, after thanking her label, XL, and management for embracing "the fact that I'm a woman," she concluded with, "I'd like to take this moment to publicly support Kesha."
As previously reported, Kesha filed a lawsuit against Dr. Luke back in 2014, claiming that he had sexually and emotionally abused her over the course of a decade. On one occasion, she says, Dr. Luke forced her to snort something before getting on a plane, "and during the trip he forced himself on her while she was drugged."
In her suit, the singer asked to be allowed to record with a label not owned by her alleged abuser. On Friday (19 February), a judge ruled that she could not be released from her contract, and is still obliged to record four more albums under Dr. Luke's label.
