Isn't it a great thing to see women within the entertainment industry standing up for each other?

After filing a lawsuit last year against producer Dr. Luke, Kesha is locked in a legal battle with her label, but celebs from Ariana Grande to Anne Hathaway have been coming forward to publicly voice their support for her. Taylor Swift even donated $250,000 to the singer, who alleges that throughout their decade-long history, Dr. Luke harassed, raped, and sexually abused her.

Adele is the latest celeb to speak out. The "When We Were Young" singer made out like a bandit at the BRIT awards last night, taking home three trophies, and she used her time on stage to show her support for Kesha.

"I'd like to take a quick second to thank my management and my record label for embracing the fact that I'm a woman and being encouraged by it, and I'd also like to take this moment to publicly support Kesha," the singer said while on stage.
