Kesha is flipping the bird to the doubters, the body-shamers and anonymous Internet haters.

Welcome back, Kesha.

The singer, who’s had a public legal battle with Dr. Luke and an ongoing struggle with an eating disorder, is ready to put it behind her.

She posted on Instagram over the weekend: “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.”

Kesha checked her self into a rehab facility in 2014 to get a handle on the disorder. That yea, she told Elle magazine, “I felt like part of my job was to be as skinny as possible and, to make that happen, I had been abusing my body,” she wrote. “I just wasn’t giving it the energy it needed to keep me healthy and strong.”

Two years later, Kesha is staying strong. She added to her Instagram post, “I will not just ******* be quiet and hide. today I will say **** it and live. So FUUUUUUUUCK it. today I’m making that choice. AND IM HAPPY AS A DAMN CLAM. and also a big ol **** u if u wanna hate on my body. just remember that makes u look like a ********.”

Kesha is reportedly planning a “statement” performance at this Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.
