Crowdfund To Save This Recording Star

What do George Harrison, Prince. Don Henley, LeAnn Rimes, Courtney Love and now Ke$ha have in common?

They all wanted to break their record deals. Ke$ha, who People Magazine says was the highest paid singer at $46M last year, is suing Sony to get out of her agreement, claiming sexual assault, among other things.

Taylor Swift has pledged $250,000 and Ke$ha’s devoted fans have started a crowdfunding campaign for her.

Fame has its privileges.
