P!nk on Dr. Luke: "This Is His Karma and He Earned It Because He's Not a Good Person"
"He doesn't do good business, he's not a kind person, he doesn't do the right thing when given ample opportunities to do so, and I don't really feel that bad for him"
Published Oct 05, 2017While Kesha's ongoing legal battle against Dr. Luke rolls on, plenty of pop stars have spoken out against the Kemosabe Records founder, including Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Grimes and Kelly Clarkson. Now, P!nk has added her voice to growing chorus of those against the producer.
Speaking with the New York Times, P!nk echoed Clarkson's sentiments shared last month, openly speaking about her own encounters with Dr. Luke. The piece reads as follows:
"I don't know what happened," she said of Kesha's much-publicized claims that Dr. Luke was sexually and verbally abusive. "But I know that regardless of whether or not Dr. Luke did that, this is his karma and he earned it because he's not a good person."
"I have told him that to his face and I do not work with him," she added. "He doesn't do good business, he's not a kind person, he doesn't do the right thing when given ample opportunities to do so, and I don't really feel that bad for him." Dr. Luke declined to comment.
P!nk last collaborated with Dr. Luke, born Lukasz Gottwald, on her 2006 LP I'm Not Dead, for which he co-wrote and produced three tracks. Her seventh album, Beautiful Trauma, is set to arrive October 13 through RCA.
Just earlier today (October 5), P!nk announced a sprawling tour in support of the new album. You can see all the dates, including several in Canada, here.
