Ariana Grande supports Kesha: 'I didn't know about a lot of this'

Vocal sensation Ariana Grande has shown her support for fellow female musician, Kesha. 

'Die Young' songstress Kesha made headlines recently after her legal request to emancipate herself from a contract with Dr. Luke, who she says drugged and raped her, was denied in court. This shocking outcome has rattled the music world and many celebrities have spoken out in support of her. 

Grande is the latest superstar to do so and told Carson Daly, during an interview with 97.1 AMP Radio, the she was mostly unaware of terrible situations like this when she was younger so is disgusted to see the dark side of the industry.

"I love Kesha. I worked with her when I was a lot younger. We've been friends, I support her, regardless of what's going on. I didn't know about a lot of this. At the time I was really young. We didn't discuss any of this."

She added: "The incredible double standards that we (women) face on a daily basis, in the industry and just in the world, it's shocking. I would be so amused - and pardon me if this comes across as sexist - but I don't think a male artist would be in this position right now. Sorry... And my fellow women are definitely something that I will always be one of the first to speak up about."
