Recently, Kesha tweeted her support for Taylor Swift backing the singer up in her case against her much-publicised groping trail.
Kesha tweeted her support for Swift earlier today, writing: “I support you always. And especially right now and admire your strength and fearlessness. Truth is always the answer”.
Meanwhile, Kesha recently appeared on Good Morning America to speak about how her latest album Rainbow helped her to overcome difficult issues in the past few years. “This record, quite literally, saved my life,” she admitted. “I hope you guys like it and I hope you can hear it, and I hope it helps people.”
