Pink Refuses To Work With Dr. Luke Because He’s ‘Not a Good Person’

Radar

“I don’t really feel that bad for him.”

Pink has vowed to never work with music producer Dr. Luke ever again. The pop star told the New York Times that while she doesn't know the details of the sexual harassment and abuse allegations made against Dr. Luke by Kesha, she still doesn't like him as a person. The two previously worked together on Pink's 2006 album I'm Not Dead.

“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,” Pink told the Times. “I have told him that to his face and I do not work with him. 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.” 

Kesha accused Dr. Luke of sexual, physical, and verbal abuse. Among the allegations, she claimed he forced her to snort illegal drugs and gave her "sober pills," which were really a form of date rape drug, Billboard reported. The producer has denied these accusations. When reached for comment by the Times, Dr. Luke declined to respond to Pink's remarks. 

Pink and Kesha are not the only pop stars who've seen Dr. Luke's dark side. Kelly Clarkson has also said the producer is "not a good guy," according to Vulture, and that she'd been blackmailed by her label to work with him before. The singer even lost millions of dollars when she refused to share a songwriting credit with Dr. Luke on 2009's "My Life Would Suck Without You."

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.

"In the midst of chaos there's opportunity"

Following the travesty that was Fyre Festival, Ja Rule wants to take another stab at creating a music festival. Good luck getting that off the ground.

On Thursday, the rapper spoke to TMZ, where he revealed that he was planning to relaunch Icon, an app used to book entertainers, which is similar to Billy McFarland's Fyre app. He told the outlet that he wanted to create a festival similar to Fyre to support it.

"[Fyre Festival] is heartbreaking to me. It was something that I really, really wanted to be special and amazing, and it just didn't turn out that way, but in the midst of chaos there's opportunity, so I'm working on a lot of new things," he says. He then gets into the fact that he wants to form a music festival. "[Fyre] is the most iconic festival that never was... I have plans to create the iconic music festival, but you didn't hear it from me."

Ja Rule actually doesn't seem to think he is at all responsible for what came from Fyre Fest, claiming in a Twitter post that he was "hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, led astray." Even if that's his feeling, he should realize that anyone involved with Fyre shouldn't ever try their hand at music festivals again.
