Kesha Rose Sebert went through an emotional court appearance on Friday when a judge refused to nullify her six-album recording contract with Sony Records. Her reasoning for walking away is because the contract gets her in contact with Dr. Luke, the producer she claims drugged and raped her in 2006.

Since the judge’s verdict, there has been an outpour of support from fans and women in the music industry. Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Lorde, Alessia Cara, Halsey and many more shared their support on social media.

Now, Demi Lovato has stepped forward to send some kind words to “brave and beautiful” Kesha. She adds that women should be "taken just as seriously as men," using Kesha’s sexual assault lawsuit as an example that we shouldn’t ignore.

The October/November 2015 cover star also addressed the idea of empowerment, encouraging women to take action if you feel it’s the right thing to do. As Kesha continues to go through her legal battle, it’s comforting to know she has tons of people standing by her side.
