Leather-clad Kesha stuns on Cosmopolitan's June cover as she opens up on life after Dr Luke battle
While the court debacle might have come to a standstill, following years of explosive accusations, the Tik Tok hitmaker's life has certainly picked up the pace.
For the longest time, singer Kesha - born as Kesha Rose Sebert - was engaged in an excruciatingly long legal battle with record producer Dr Luke, over allegations of sexual and emotional harassment.
While the court debacle might be at a standstill at the moment, following years of explosive accusations from both ends, the Tik Tok hitmaker's life has certainly picked up the pace. In fact, clad in a studded leather jacket and a plunging floral gown, the songstress' latest appearance on the covers of Cosmopolitan magazine has sparked quite a frenzy amongst her fans.
And rightly so, as Kesha herself acknowledges that she is ready to move on in life. Come summer, not only will the 31-year-old singer be touring with Macklemore, but will also be promoting her smash hit album Rainbow during the music tour.
“I’m not, like, a sad sap now. There are a couple of ballads, but my show is still extremely fun,” says the Praying hitmaker, promising an all-glitter performance when she finally hits the road for the 30-day-long tour.
“I’m not going to be less crazy. There’s an awesome band, and there’s dancing and glitter. That’s a promise I will keep — there will always be glitter," she added, as quoted by People magazine.
Explaining that she is ready to take control of her life, the singer in her cover interview also talked about the pressures of stardom and how it had started to take a toll on her life.
I'm so honored to have had the opportunity to wear Nudie Cohn's personal suit to the @recordingacademy Grammys! He made this suit and walked his granddaughter down the aisle wearing it. No one has ever worn the suit before besides him. Thank you, this means so much to me! #timesup 💕💜💖💜💕 Makeup by @vittoriomasecchia , hair by @prestonwada and styled by @samanthaburkhartstylist
She told Cosmo: "I thought I had to be very tough and really strong and portray that I didn’t give a f**k, and that just was not the case. I was pretending like everything was great all the time.”
Another aspect of her life that deeply affected the pop star was her battle with an eating disorder, for which, the singer even sought treatment.
Regardless, she denies being labelled or put in any box. “I’m not a size. I’m not a number. I am a strong, badass, motherf*****g woman, and quite frankly, I like my junk. Ten years ago, I never thought I’d be able to say that,” added Kesha.
