Lady Gaga: Kesha is being 'publicly shamed'

Lady Gaga thinks Kesha is being "publicly shamed" after a court ruled she could not leave her recording contract.

The 'Til It Happens To You' hitmaker has spoke out in support of the 'Tik Tok' singer after she made allegations she had been sexually assaulted by Dr. Luke.

Gaga said: "I think that people should just know that there's so much more than what meets the eye in a case like that.

"I feel like she's being very publicly shamed for something that happens in the music industry all the time, to women and men. I just want to stand by her side because I can't watch another woman that went through what I've been through suffer."

Kesha has received a whole host of support from a number of high-profile celebrities including Taylor Swift and Adele and the 29-year-old singer insists they will all not rest until "that leaf that has Kesha on it falls".

Speaking to Carson Daly on 97.1 AMP Radio, she explained: "I won't put words in their mouths, but I think it is probably as scary for them as it is for me to see so much shaming happen to females in the business that are so talented because they're just not in as much of a position of power as the people who are speaking up against them.

"We're going to shake the tree until that leaf that has Kesha on it falls. I care about her. In any other business, if you were to report that anything happened to you to the human resources department, it would be dealt with. But we don't have a human resources department. We don't have a union as artists. We're just fighting for ourselves. If we don't stick together, our voices just won't be heard."
