Kesha has been posting inspirational messages to her Instagram lately, but one message she shared on Sunday evening (May 15) got downright personal. The singer posted a photo of herself standing in silhouette on a beach. In the caption, she opened up about her personal, professional and legal struggles of late and why she’s not letting any of those battles stop her.
Kesha wrote, “I have been battling depression and an eating disorder for a while now. my career is in a strange place and it feels like I’m fighting an uphill fight some days. but I have decided to take my life back. my freedom. my happiness. my voice. my worth.”
In the photo, she’s raising both of her middle fingers high in the air. She wrote about her new attitude, “I will not just f—ing be quiet and hide. today I will say f— it and live. So F— it. today I’m making that choice. AND IM HAPPY AS A DAMN CLAM.”
And she had one word for the inevitable haters who love to troll Instagram and Twitter. “and also a big ol f— u if u wanna hate on my body,” she wrote. “just remember that makes u look like a d—head.”
Her legal battles with Dr. Luke have yet to be fully resolved. So far nothing has gone her way as she’s attempted to hold her former producer legally accountable for alleged past actions and get out of her recording contract with Sony Music Group. Her determined and carefree attitude might be just the thing she needs to keep moving forward.
