Taylor Swift’s no stranger to making charitable donations, but her latest one is a little different. This time she’s offering financial support to a fellow celebrity, and not everyone is happy about it.
The celebrity in question is Kesha, whose legal battle against producer Dr. Luke has won the support of pop stars like Lady Gaga and Lorde. A judge denied the singer’s request to be released from her Sony contract, sparking outrage from many figures in the industry. Swift, apparently, felt compelled to do something.
“In a show of support, Taylor Swift has donated $250,000 to Kesha to help with any of her financial needs during this trying time,” a rep for Swift announced to E! News.
Kesha’s mother confirmed the “generous” donation on social media.
“A person’s wealth is not measured by what they have but by WHO they help with it,” Pebe Sebert tweeted. “And Taylor Swift is a truly RICH PERSON. Thank you. Most important for Kesha, is that these beautiful, powerful women are standing behind her, letting the world see how powerful the truth is!”
Here’s where the plot thickens. Demi Lovato, who has also been an outspoken supporter of Kesha, has taken to social media to criticize Swift for “throwing money” at the problem. Here’s the tweet she posted in response to the donation.
And that, friends, is why “Demi and Taylor” is currently trending on Twitter. Some fans are Team Taylor, some are Team Demi, some are just happy that Kesha is getting more support, and many are urging everyone to remember that the bad guy in this case is not a female pop star.
