Okay, I've vented, now I'll explain.
Reports circulated a few weeks back that Kesha was set to perform at this Sunday's Billboard Music Awards. Not just that, rumors began running wild that it would be a 'statement' performance directed at Sony and Dr. Luke in the midst of their legal battle.
Now however, we've learned this is no longer the case.
Dr. Luke and Sony have rescinded their approval of the performance, which has resulted in it being pulled from the show.
Kesha took to her Instagram tonight to verify just exactly what she had planned, and it's not what you think:
I was very excited to perform a tribute to Bob Dylan by singing a cover of "It ain't me, babe" at the Billboard awards this year. I'm very sad and sorry to say I won't be allowed to do this. I just wanted to make very clear that this performance was about me honoring one of my favorite songwriters of all time and has never had anything at all to do with Dr. Luke. I was never going to use a picture of him, speak of him or allude to my legal situation in any way. I simply wanted to sing a song I love to honor an artist I have always looked up to. thank u all for the continued support.
