Kesha opened up about her lawsuit with Dr. Luke at a performance in Philadelphia on Tuesday night.
Following the Democratic National Convention, the “We R Who We R” singer, who’s embroiled in an ongoing legal battle with the producer for the last several years, told the audience during her set at Gabby Giffords’ Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC event she’s going through tough times.
“I feel like if you’re a human being, you go through pain. And you go through hurt. And every single one of us knows that emotion. I don’t know if you guys know what I am going through. I’m going through a lawsuit. It’s f**king horrible,” she said via the Huffington Post.

Kesha also took the opportunity to address the gun violence crisis plaguing the nation. While we can’t control the people committing these senseless acts, “we can control who we give the f–king weapons to.”
“I think the universe is screaming at us that there needs to be a change and we have to f–king listen,” she said. “I do think love is something as humans we all have and I hope heals us. I really believe that love and empathy, it can heal us.”
Back in May, Kesha told fans she’s ready to take her life back.
“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,” she wrote on Instagram, “but I have decided to take my life back. my freedom. my happiness. my voice. my worth.”
