The 30-year-old “Poker Face” singer took to Twitter on Wednesday to air her views over the reported cancellation of the 29-year-old “Tik Tok” artist’s Billboard performance over the weekend, according to Us Weekly.
In a tweet, she made a comparison between the record producer and Ursula, the widely-popular villainess in Disney’s “The Little Mermaid.”
“Isn’t it strange that it’s legal to own a woman this way?” the New York-born “Bad Romance” performer wrote.
“Listen Ursula, we want her voice back #freeKesha,” Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, further commented about the report that Kesha can no longer perform at the Billboard Music Awards on May 22.
In a previous report, Us Weekly dished that Dick Clark Productions, which oversees the annual Billboard event, issued a statement on Tuesday to announce that Dr. Luke cancelled Kesha’s performance.
The production outfit shared that while the singer already accepted the invitation to perform on the show following the approval of Dr. Luke’s record label, Kemosabe Records eventually rescinded it.
On the other hand, Lady Gaga is set to show off her talent in playing the guitar in her upcoming album, reported Rolling Stone.
According to producer and DJ Mark Ronson, the “American Horror Story: Hotel” star’s follow-up album to 2013’s “Artpop” will not only experience the “analog” approach towards doing a music album, but will also see her other talents – being a multi-talented musician.
“She’s the happiest when she’s sitting at a piano, barking orders at a drummer,” Ronson added. “That side of her, I don’t think a lot of the world has seen. It’s really great to make this very honest, authentic, kind of analog record with her.”
No details have been revealed, though, as to when Lady Gaga is releasing new album.
