2017 seems to be looking promising for pop singer, Kesha. Despite yet another year unable to release new music, not helped by her denied court request back in February, the star has been maintaining a positive attitude. She recently posted an emotional message on Instagram that says she, more than anyone, is truly looking forward to a fresh start.
“just got back a mix of me and someone singing a duet crying happy tears never in my life imagined this dream could ever actually come true” Kesha captioned a black and white photo on social media. “please pray one day y’all can hear this music.” She goes on to describe the duet with the unknown person as “the most vulnerable and honest” the singer has ever been with herself.
just got back a mix of me and someone singing a duet crying happy tears never in my life imagined this dream could ever actually come true…. please pray one day y'all can hear this music. it's the most vulnerable and honest I have ever been to myself and it's literally documenting me growing up. I cannot wait and will forever fight for u to hear it. merry everything and happy every day and thank you for not abandoning me while I fight the good fight. I just want to make art. and let you hear it. that's all I want for Christmas. and my New Years resolution is to finish my record and give it to you. thank you animals. love y'all.
Kesha then turns to gratitude, thanking her fans for sticking out the bad – and there’s been a lot of it – with her. “I just want to make art. and let you hear it,” she penned. “that’s all I want for Christmas. and my New Years resolution is to finish my record and give it to you.” Given her current circumstances, that would be a Christmas miracle!
In 2014, Kesha sued her producer, Dr. Luke, for sexual assault and battery; she sought to invalidate all her contracts with him due to the abuse. However, Dr. Luke claimed a countersuit, deeming her allegations “defamatory.” With no end near in sight, Kesha sought out a preliminary injunction that would allow her to release music outside of her contract with Dr. Luke and Sony, but it was denied in February.
This past summer, the pop star dismissed her lawsuit in California; her lawyer revealed she will be appealing the previous judgement and continuing with legal pursuits in New York. Kesha has also performed at certain events, such as the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, but has not been allowed to release any new music.
However, this Instagram seems promising. Kesha’s been able to compose and sing and work with other artists, many of whom show outward support in her legal battles. Hopefully Sony will amend the wrongs they have enforced by letting her freely create and spread her art.
