Kesha on Dr. Luke lawsuit: 'It's the utmost importance to tell the story'
Songstress Kesha has revealed that the lawsuit she filed against producer Dr. Luke has been nothing short of a "mind f**k".
She made the comments in a new episode of Viceland's music show NOISEY, which focuses on Nashville and the music scene there, and explained that the whole legal situation has been incredibly difficult to navigate:
"When you work really hard at something, then to have it taken away from you is pretty devastating. I worked my ass off for a lot of years to be able to do it: I sang backup vocals and the first couple songs I was on, I didn't give a fuck because I just had this one vision. Once you earn that and make that happen, then to have it taken away from you is pretty devastating. It is definitely a mind f**k."
The interview was filmed prior to her appearance at the Bob Dylan tribute concert at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium and Kesha added that country music has been hugely influential to her:
"I've always loved country music and listened to it a lot growing up, so now I'm like kind of allowing myself to just tap into like my music roots a little more recently. Here, it really is the utmost importance to tell the story, and that's really what Nashville songwriting is about -- the song is the most important thing. I think I am just like finding my voice in the world and so the past three years has been me taking my centre and myself back and my voice."
