As promised, Kesha has released an official statement about her legal battle with Sony and Dr. Luke. The pop star wrote a beautiful message about how her struggle is bigger than just her — she wants to set an example for other entertainers and young girls who have abused. She wrote on Facebook that she's so "humbled and thankful" for everyone's support, especially her fellow artists who "knowingly put their own careers at stake."
"All I ever wanted was to be able to make music without being afraid, scared, or abused. This case has never been about a renegotiation of my record contract – it was never about getting a bigger, or a better deal. This is about being free from my abuser. I would be willing to work with Sony if they do the right thing and break all ties that bind me to my abuser," the singer said.
Even though she's frustrated by her case, she says that there's a bigger issue at stake.
"I think about young girls today – I don’t want my future daughter – or your daughter – or any person to be afraid that they will be punished if they speak out about being abused, especially if their abuser is in a position of power. Unfortunately I don’t think that my case is giving people who have been abused confidence that they can speak out, and that’s a problem," Kesha continued.
"But I just want to say that if you have been abused, please don’t be afraid to speak out. There are places that will make you feel safe. There are people who will help you. I for one, will stand beside you and behind you. I know now how this all feels and will forever fight for you the way perfect strangers have been fighting for me."
She finished off her post with a powerful message.
"Yes, I am very much a feminist, but more than that, I am a humanist. I believe in supporting my fellow human beings in being SAFE. We're all in this together. You are not alone. I love you and thank you. ❤️"
