Kesha sat down for an in-depth interview about her “devastating” year and returning to her roots – and it was actually super sweet

Before the 29-year-old took the stage, the interviewer asks Kesha how the past couple months have been for her, obviously hinting at her ongoing lawsuit against her former producer. Immediately, she starts choking up, saying how “devastating” it is to have something (her music) taken away from her.

“Kesha is no longer the artist we met in the late aughts: blazing dollar sign in her name in place of the S, gold Trans Am that she said she wanted to have continuous sex in, 24-7 party girl, dredged in oil and breaded like a schnitzel in glitter. Now she is someone in suspended animation, unable to release new music pending contract litigation, touring small clubs to make some money to help fund her lawsuit and to make sure her fans don’t forget her; now she is someone who wants to work and make music, just without the man she says raped her; now Kesha is a cause.”

This performance is so powerful
