Kesha’s comeback is one of the most important comebacks of our generation.
Kesha was privately battling inner demons her entire career. It was not until 2014, when she sued producer Dr. Luke, that we got a real look into her life.
According to Rolling Stones, “In 2014, Kesha sued producer Dr. Luke, seeking to void all their contracts because of how, the suit claimed, Dr. Luke “sexually, physically, verbally, and emotionally abused [Kesha] to the point where [she] nearly lost her life.” Dr. Luke counter sued shortly after. The first big decision in these cases came on February 19, when a New York judge denied Kesha a court injunction that would have allowed her to record new music — apart from her record label, Sony Music, as well as Dr. Luke — while the suits proceeded through the courts.”
Before the lawsuit even began a #FREEKESHA movement was sweeping the nation. After the lawsuit, and the verdict, Kesha had an out pour of support from fellow artist and fans all around the world.
Dr.Luke denies these claims, and Sony claimed ” “not in the position to terminate the contractual relationship between Luke and Kesha” because she entered into agreements with Dr. Luke’s company Kasz Money.
Kesha had to fight to prove her truth and make music she believed in.
When Kesha first hit the scene she was presented to us and some party girl. I mean her songs literally talk about brushing her teeth with Jack Daniels. She was regarded as another drunk popstar who will fade away. Her musical talents were not taken as seriously as they should have been. Little did we know that behind all of that glitter there was a puppet master and strong woman trying to break free.
In her music video for “Praying” she begins by saying “Am I dead/Or is this one of those dreams/ those horrible dreams/that seem like they last forever”
Kesha is telling us what your life has been life right in the beginning of this song. The video continues showing herself being trapped and then finally breaking free. You can feel that watching the video.
Her next single “Woman” will leave you saying “YAS KESHA.” This is her kick butt anthem saying I am a strong woman and you will not defeat me.
What is so important about Kesha’s comeback is it gives people a light. It shows that she not only survived but she is living. Kesha is an inspiration and her come back should be described as just that: Inspirational.
