In a new post on Instagram, uploaded yesterday (July 7), Kesha hit out at people who had been body shaming her.

“I didn’t think in 2024 people still body shamed but I am so proud of my body. She’s been through a lot. She’s torn her acl on stage and finished the show. She’s held my fucking broken heart together.”

Kesha continued: “To those who think you’re shaming me, you’re actually making me feel very powerful. so, to you, I hope you one day feel whole enough to not tear other women down. In the mean time, hate me harder bitch.”

Last week (July 4) Kesha shared the energetic new single, ‘Joy Ride’ – her first release after departing from RCA and Kemosabe Records last December.

‘Joy Ride’ is a move away from the more experimental nature of ‘Gag Order’ and a callback to the earlier synth-pop sound found on her hits ‘Tik ToK’ and ‘We R Who We R’.

The news came after Kesha and Dr Luke – the founder of Kemosabe Records – settled their defamation lawsuit a month before the case was set to go to trial in June 2023. Also, the split followed the release of the former’s fifth album ‘Gag Order’ – her last contractually obligated LP for Kemosabe – in May.

The LA-born singer initially sued Dr. Luke in 2014, claiming he sexually assaulted and emotionally abused her.

He denied the allegations and countersued Kesha, alleging that she breached her recording contract with him and made her allegations up in an attempt to get out of the deal.

Kesha maintained her original claims against Dr. Luke.

Since leaving Kemosabe Records, Kesha has given several updates on her new music. Recently, she shared a photo of her at Rick Rubin’s home, suggesting that the two are collaborating again after the success of ‘Gag Order’.

Earlier this year, Kesha admitted that she was “ferociously” working on new music and teased another song – a slower, ethereal ballad – in a promotional video for her fan website,

Last month, the singer did her first concert as a “free motherfucking woman” at WeHo Pride.
