A kesha singer changed her name to "Kesha" without the "$" after the legal fight with her former producer ... Can you switch to just "Kesha" where can I report this? Do you have a form?

I don't feel like the artist name "Ke$ha" should be re-directed to "Kesha",
unless she re-releases her past music under her new name, which I doubt she'd do.

In my opinion, it should be. Keeping her name as "Ke$ha" goes against her own artist intent of being called "Kesha" from now on. "Jason Derülo" should also be redirected to "Jason Derulo", he doesn't use that stylization in years.

Unless she has access to time travel technology he can't change the name on old releases.

The only problem is Ke$ha as main name
They should just rename/change Ke$ha to Kesha as main name

Unfortunately we can't add / remove / or change corrections right now.  As soon as we can, we'll fix this.

At this point, I think all the current issues (fixing wrong redirections, merging same artists, disambiguation for artists with the same name, etc.) will all be solved once the new catalogue is out, so we'll probably have to wait a little more. :/

If you think bumping the thread like this will help in any way it won't. It only pushes down new topics and makes yourself come across as nothing more but annoying. You already had your official answer and the thread is marked as "acknowledged", there's no need for this frankly childish behavior.

It'd be great if we could have the ability to fix the name of an Artist, Band or a Musician by ourselves. I don't understand why LFM Mods don't allow members of the band to tidy up the page on LFM by themselves. If Musicbrainz.org allows people to contribute their corrections when it comes to an album and an artist catalog, then the Moderators team of LFM community should do the same. Requesting from the team of Moderators to fix the mess wastes our precious time. I heard that Jon already bumped a dev ticket to the team to allow us to correct mistakes by ourselves in the foreseeable future.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Combining Ke$ha and Kesha.

My last.fm shows two separate artists (Kesha and Ke$ha) but its the same person. Since she changed her name, is there a way for the two artists to be combined so that the data is accurate? will this be fixed in a future update? thanks
