Kesha's two perky tracks and her rock "n" roll back story - she said she dropped out of high school to chase her musical dreams, and dropped into Prince's house to deliver a demo CD - established her as a charming underdog, a raised fist of chipped nail polish to the established stars' high-gloss manicures.
Despite its challenges, Kesha said making her followup to 2012's Warrior helped her cope with her pain. She asked Kesha's representatives-no dice. "Skip it altogether. It's a breeding ground for negativity and hate. Don't let people scare and chain you into changing the things about yourself that make you unique and interesting - those are the qualities that will make your life so magical". You can just be Kesha Rose Sebert. Apparently that's good enough. "You're still in a society that worships photoshopped models", she said. You are going to write this song so you keep in mind to make it through. How has that music, though, helped you through this hard time?' You will meet kids who tell you that they struggle with numerous same things you struggled with or more. It's like she's having a conversation with the listener about the struggles she's faced down and the role that spiritual exploration has played in her re-centering of herself - from "Hymn", a song for "the kids with no religion" about setting your own standards for recognizing and embracing your power and worth, to "Finding You", about the permanence of love and kindness on an impermanent plane of existence. "You're going to learn that art can heal people".
Kesha get emotional during a appearance on Good Morning America in New York City on Wednesday as she examined the anticipated arrival of her most recent LP, Rainbow. "And no matter how hard things get, you're going to write this song so you keep in mind to make it through".
Kesha's new album Rainbow has leaked online days before its official release.
Kesha's vocals have stepped up on this album, proving she can belt out massive notes and throw vocal tricks with the best of them, but she never loses her style.
After she belted the emotional ballad, she sat down with host Robin Roberts and discussed "Rainbow", her first album in five years.
When Kesha first blew up the airwaves with Tik Tok, she sang about partying and hangovers and was dismissed as inconsequential pop.
