( 4UMF NEWS ) J.Lo Slammed For New Dr. Luke-Produced Single:
Pop diva Jennifer Lopez came under fire Thursday as fans realized her catchy new feminist anthem was produced by the same man accused of raping Kesha.
“Ain’t Your Mama” — a Latin-infused, beat-thumping tirade against man-boys accustomed to girlfriends doing their laundry — was co-written and produced by Dr. Luke, Sony’s so-called “super-producer,” reports the site Idolator.
“I love @JLo but I will not support a song produced by rapist and monster dr Luke,” wrote Twitter user @hurricxne. “Im so disappointed you still worked with him.”
Many on Twitter criticized Jennifer Lopez Thursday for working with controversial Sony producer Dr. Luke.
“JLo & Dr. Luke not gettin coins for a song can wait. They live off millions meanwhile Kesha’s struggling. #SaveKesha,” added @thefamewarrior.
“TiK ToK” singer Kesha, 29, alleges that Dr. Luke — real name Lukasz Gottwald — drugged and raped her shortly after her 18th birthday. She has fought to free herself from a six-album deal with Sony, claiming the company wouldn’t promote her music as heavily if she worked with a different producer.
Gottwald, who denies the allegations and has not been charged with a crime, won a key court battle Wednesday after State Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich threw out Kesha’s civil suit, claiming the “We R Who We R” singer’s sexual abuse claims were too old and too weak.
Despite Gottwald’s legal victory, the Twitterverse still shamed Jenny from the Block for fraternizing with Sony’s biggest and most polarizing hitmaker. Meanwhile, a gaggle of high-profile artists including Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Adele have flocked to Kesha’s side.
“How is JLo gonna come out with a feminist song that’s produced by Dr. Luke….that kinda sounds ironic if you ask me,” tweeted @stephpayano_.
Lopez is signed to Epic Records, an imprint of Sony. Gottwald, who founded Sony label Kemosabe Records, has also collaborated with the likes of Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Britney Spears.
“Ain’t Your Mama,” complete with sassy album art of J.Lo posing in perfectly coiffed pinup-girl stance, is streaming on Apple Music and Spotify.
Reps for Lopez and Epic Records have not yet replied to the Daily News’ request for comment.
