And she’s better than ever
After a long, stressful hiatus Kesha released her third studio album this year and she’s back performing and setting the stage on fire. There was a lengthy, controversial dispute between Kesha and Dr. Luke where she was actually legally stopped from recording anything, which makes her return to music all the more touching. Her album ‘Rainbow’ was written during her long stay in rehab for her life-threatening eating disorder, and it deals with themes like letting go of the past and forgiving yourself. It’s a deeply personal album that debuted at number one on The Billboard 200 and received hugely positive reviews from critics, and her fans are beyond happy that their queen is back.
Kesha has been in London performing at the EMAs and at a smaller gig in Brixton this week wearing some very sequinned outfits and expressing her individual style. The choice to embrace herself in all her imperfections has been a difficult one for her, but she’s happier than she’s ever been. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone Magazine she explained "I feel like myself for the first time ever. And I made a record I'm extremely proud of, from the bottom of my guts – I excavated the most gnarly lyrics that were so difficult for me. And people still like it! It's really beautiful, and it's very healing. I feel like I'm being seen for what I actually am, and people are OK with it."
We love you Kesha. We’re glad you’re happy.
