Meghan’s Take on Dr. Luke, J. Lo & Kesha

Fans have definitely taken sides in the ongoing legal woes between "Warrior" singer Kesha and producer Dr. Luke. But when Meghan Trainor was asked if she would ever work with Luke again following Kesha's claims that the producer raped and abused her over the course of their working relationship, she wasn't too certain how to answer the question.

"I don’t know. I don’t… know. I think whatever happened, I don’t know, and I’m good friends with Kesha. We text. I’ve never met her in person but I want her to put out new music. I think whatever happened is unfair," Meghan said on Watch What Happens Live on Monday. "The whole thing is tragic, but I just want her to put out new music."

Kesha has been making career strides despite still being linked to Luke following a February ruling in which a judge denied her request to be released from her contract with his Kemosabe Records, a subsidiary of Sony Records. She has since filed an appeal and hired new counsel, according to Billboard. She has also began singing again. She re-recorded Zedd's track "True Colors with the EDM producer, and also performed a cover of Lady Gaga's Oscar-nominated track "Til It Happens to You," which chronicles the pain of sexual assault. 

As fans continue to rally around Kesha, they have also taken aim at anyone who has worked with Dr. Luke, including Jennifer Lopez, who recorded her latest single "Ain't Your Mama" with him. (The track was co-written by Meghan.) "I thought it was very unfair that J.Lo got, she got a lot of hate on Twitter all day long. I felt so bad because she had nothing to do with that," she said. "I wrote it with my good friends J. Kash and LunchMoney Lewis on it one night and [Luke] is a producer on it with Cirkut. I felt so bad that they just attacked her and was like, 'Why would you put this out?' when I wrote the song with these two guys and he was a producer on it."

Below Meghan opens up a bit more about how her life has changed since becoming famous.
