Kesha has hit back at body-shaming online comments, telling trolls to “just remember that [it] makes [you] look like a dickhead.”
The singer has spoken about the issue in the past, posting in March that she is “not a slave to perfection right now” and that she doesn’t have the time for body-shamers.
Now, Kesha has uploaded a photo to Instagram with a caption that reads: “I have been battling depression and an eating disorder for a while now. My career is in a strange place and it feels like I’m fighting an uphill fight some days. But I have decided to take my life back. My freedom. My happiness. My voice. My worth.”
She continues: “I will not just fucking be quiet and hide. Today I will say fuck it and live. So fuck it. Today I’m making that choice. And I’m happy as a damn clam. And also a big ol’ fuck you if you wanna hate on my body. Just remember that makes you look like a dickhead.”
