Ariana Grande supports Kesha amidst record label battle
Ariana Grande is supporting Kesha as she fights to be released from her record label.
The 'Dangerous Woman' hitmaker agrees that the 'Tik Tok' singer should be released from her contract with Sony Music over allegations Kesha has been sexually assaulted by producer Dr. Luke.
Ariana said: "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 incredible double standards that we [women] face on a daily basis, in the industry and just in the world, it's shocking. 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."
The 22-year-old singer isn't afraid to take the "brunt" of any backlashes over her comments as she is talking about something she is incredibly "passionate" about.
Speaking on 97.1 AMP Radio's Daly Download, she added: "If I'm speaking out about something I'm passionate about, I'm willing to take the brunt for fighting for what I believe in, and my fellow women are definitely something that I will always be one of the first to speak up about."
