New York City, NY, United States (4E) – Singer Kesha has had an emotional year as she has lost her legal battle against her musical producer, Dr. Luke, and during the Billboard’s Women in Music Awards, the singer once again thanked those who have been supporting her.
Kesha attended the event at Pier 36 in New York City and shared when she accepted Billboard’s Trailblazer award, “I didn’t really feel like standing and getting an award — I didn’t feel worthy of that. But I knew I had to drag myself out of my bed, put on my damn boots, walk up here tonight and say thank you to you guys. I’m not used to winning stuff. Thank you so much. You guys are gonna make me cry — I’m gonna try to not cry but it’s not going to work. I want to especially thank my fans, who I love and appreciate more than you guys will ever know.”
She continued to thank her friends who have supported her such as Igg Azalea, Taylor Swift, and Lady Gaga, who have all voiced out their support for her legal battle with Sony and Dr. Luke. She added that she never thought of herself as a trailblazer because she is as scared and flawed as any person. Kesha continued to say that her message has always been to believe in one’s self and love one’s self.
Kesha also said that she is lucky enough to have a voice that people will listen to that is why she has been talking about her struggles such as anxiety and her recovery from an eating disorder. She also alleges that Dr. Luke has mentally, physically, and emotionally abused her. She added, “I’ve decided I want to be part of the solution. And that’s why I decided to stand confident in my ever-changing, totally imperfect body and try to live up to and practice the self-worth and self-love that I preach in my music.”
Kesha is working on her appeal and is writing and recording new music still under her Sony contract. She ended her speech by saying that if one keeps on believing, keeps on working hard, and keeps on fighting, they can move mountains.
