'Goonies' child star made headlines with 'bizarre' TV appearance
Kesha has spoken in support of Corey Feldman after the former child star’s musical performance on US TV’s Today Show went viral last week.
Feldman – famous for his roles in ’80s films The Goonies, Stand by Me and The Lost Boys – played the song ‘Go 4 It’ with his band Corey’s Angels, a performance that some deemed bizarre and led to derisive comments online.
After Feldman hit out at online bullying following the performance, Kesha has now taken to Instagram to say that the situation “just broke my heart”.
“This just broke my heart,” Kesha wrote, posting a screenshot to an online report of Feldman speaking out about the “public shaming” that followed the performance. She added: “I wanna reach out to Corey Feldmen in a kind way and say that you have to not read that shit. People can be so horrible and mean online and it can BREAK you. Do you, fuck everyone. those people have never performed on the today show. It’s easy to sit at a computer and talk shit. It’s not easy to perform in front of millions. Keep your head up. Normal is BORING.”
