Kelly Clarkson has apparently refused to be paid millions in royalties to have herself dissociated from producer Dr. Luke. This is after she revealed refusing credit as a writer on an extremely popular song, just so she could forget working with the producer.
It seems Clarkson have refused what could be potentially millions’ worth of royalties after refusing to be credited as co-writer for “My Life Would Suck Without You,” 2009’s number one single. This song is also written by Dr. Luke.
As per Music-News, the news came courtesy of a Z100 interview, where the “Stronger” singer explained to the station that part of the situation between her and Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald, also known as Dr. Luke.
Kelly Clarkson took it upon herself to explain that she didn’t have pleasant memories working with the producer, although her experience is different from the singer Kesha’s.
It can be remembered that Kesha Rose Sebert, also known as Kesha, has been in a legal battle with Dr. Luke after what appears to be sexual and verbal abuse that the latter did to the former.
Clarkson insisted her experience was not like Kesha’s allegations, as she explained she had her own reasons for declining the credit.
It can be remembered that the “Breakaway” singer also claimed that execs from RCA, her label then, said they wouldn’t release “All I Ever Wanted,” Clark’s then-fourth album, if she refused to work with Dr. Luke.
“I was so frustrated because I literally said, ‘Anyone in the world but this one person. I will work with anyone you want to put in my path,'” Clarkson said. “…I was like, ‘I don’t want my name near his. I want to pretend this didn’t happen in my life and I want to forget it.”
