Zedd has Kesha's back.

The GRAMMY-winning EDM artist reveals to ETonline that he was "very serious" about offering to help Kesha's produce new music after a court denied her request to be let out of her contract with Sony Music.

"Very, very sorry to hear about the whole situation. I'll be happy to produce a song for you, if you want my help," Zedd wrote on Twitter.

"I just read an article about [the case], literally right before I made the tweet because I didn't know her personally," Zedd revealed to ETonline. "I thought sending a tweet was kind of the best way to get in touch with her."

"The only thing I can really do to help is produce songs and that's what I offered," he added.

The 26-year-old producer also revealed that Kesha's team has since reached out to him about his offer.

"Her team actually hit us back confirming that I was serious about it, which is really cool," Zedd said. "I'm obviously very serious about it, so maybe something will happen. Maybe there's something I can do. Maybe we can do some music. Nothing I can say right now, but it would be cool."

"All I know is that she's in a very rough position and if there's anything I can ever do to help I'll always be happy to do that," he continued.

Zedd joins the wave of celebrities who have rallied around the 28-year-old singer after a judge ruled that she could not break her contract with Dr. Luke's Kemosabe Records, which is part of the Sony Music family, despite her claims she was raped over a decade ago by Dr. Luke as well as abused her physically and emotionally. Dr. Luke has denied any wrongdoing.

While Zedd is interested in working with Kesha, he also opened up about other artists he'd love to work with.

"I've always named [Taylor Swift] as one of the artist I would love to work with. I love what she has been putting out in the last couple of years and definitely would love to," he explained, adding that he would "absolutely" work with rumored fling, Selena Gomez again.

Meanwhile, Zedd recently revamped the 1972 song "Candyman" -- in collaboration with Red and Yellow M&Ms -- to help the candy celebrate the candy's 75th anniversary.

Although he loves the final video, he admits he was nervous about acting.

"I'm a terrible actor so what I had to do in the video is about as much as I can pull off," he said. "It really fun and came out really amazing." See this video below:
