We have all heard those crazy songs. The ones that are so catchy you can’t just hold in yelling the lyrics out in the car. Or how about the ones about Mick Jagger or brushing your teeth with a bottle of Jack?
Kesha has become a pop sensation throughout the past few years, with top hits that win music awards and fuel her fire to create more songs and albums. But recently, this singer/songwriter has not been in paradise.
Kesha, born Kesha Rose Sebert, grew up with a single mother in poor conditions where her mother would bring her to performances to keep an eye on her, so that she could make money to support her kids.
Throughout her entire career, she has been controlled as to what she is to sing about and how she is allowed to perform.
The cause of this being, you ask? Her producer, Dr. Luke, who is also known as Lukasz Gottwald.
Kesha has been facing issues with the court with finally being fed up with her producer sexually assaulting her and verbally abusing her.
RollingStone Magazine had stated that her producer said to her that “she wasn’t that pretty” and that “she’s lucky to have him.” Kesha has been in rehab for an eating disorder and, quite honestly, the facts lead up to it being because of the verbal abuse she has been getting from her producer.
A few words could send someone over the edge.
With just a few words, people can be destroyed emotionally which is why some of the things Kesha has been said to of done may or may not be her actions, but her producer telling her to do things. Kesha has been with her producer since she was 18 and had signed a contract with him, but she’s trying to get a judge to take her off the contract so that she can fly solo and take control of her career.
Kesha was recently in the hospital seeking help from an eating disorder, which may be from the stress and assault put on her from her very own producer. Safe to say, Dr. Luke had something to do with her being in the hospital.
So when we watch entertainment television, do we see celebrities advocating for violence or eating disorders? Or do we just see them gloating in their own glory because they are big stars?
Time will only tell when celebrities own up to advocate for issues every day people and even celebrities face.
For Kesha, she’s facing a lot of horrible stress and health issues brought on by someone who she thought could lead her to success.
