As we all know, singer Kesha has been going through a lot lately. With her sexual assault case against record producer Dr. Luke playing out in the public eye, Kesha opened up on Instagram about her struggles how she’s choosing to confront them.
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. I will not just fucking be quiet and hide. today I will say fuck it and live. So FUUUUUUUUCK it. today I’m making that choice. AND IM HAPPY AS A DAMN CLAM. and also a big ol fuck u if u wanna hate on my body. just remember that makes u look like a dickhead. ✌🏼️
The silhouetted photo of her giving a double-one finger salute is accompanied by a powerful message. She spells out how she’s been fighting an uphill battle through depression and an eating disorder. It’s a tough task, as anyone with a mental illness can attest to. Thankfully, Kesha says that she’s decided to “…take my life back. my freedom. my happiness. my voice. my worth” and that she’s “HAPPY AS A DAMN CLAM.” (We’re super happy for you too, Kesh!)
In recent weeks, people have been commenting on Kesha’s change in appearance–most notably her weight gain–and we’re glad the singer’s telling the haters to quite literally “F off” with her closing statement i.e. “also a big ol fuck u if u wanna hate on my body. just remember that makes u look like a dickhead.”
Touche, Kesha. Touche.
