Ariana Grande Weighs in on Kesha’s Legal Battle: ‘I Don’t Think a Male Artist Would Be in This Position’
The 22-year-old is the latest celebrity to weigh in on the singer’s legal battle with Dr. Luke. After tweeting her support for Kesha, Grande sat down for a radio interview with Carson Daly to further express her feelings towards the case. She also took the opportunity to comment on sexism in the music industry.
“I love Kesha. I worked with her when I was a lot younger. We’ve been friends, I support her, regardless of what’s going on,” the “Dangerous Woman” singer said. “I didn’t know about a lot of this. At the time I was really young. We didn’t discuss any of this.”
She also went on to slam the industry altogether:” The incredible double standards that we [women] face on a daily basis, in the industry and just in the world, it’s shocking,” she continued. “I would be so amused — and pardon me if this comes across as sexist — but I don’t think a male artist would be in this position right now. Sorry.”
