Kesha Rose is preparing to fight for her music career this coming Tuesday (January 26).
In a new Instagram posted yesterday (January 21), the “We R Who We R” singer revealed her anxiousness before an upcoming court case.
“the universe is speaking to me today. I am filled with so much anxiety and hope and nerves and doubt and all my emotions are going crazy. if u pray, I could use one this week. I find out the fate of my career Tuesday,” she captioned a photo of a yield sign and overpass graffiti that reads “Life’s full of bumps.”
“Kesha now faces an abysmal decision: work with her alleged abuser…or idly and passively wait as her career tick-tocks away,” her attorney Mark Geragos wrote in a legal brief.
Kesha first filed a lawsuit against Dr. Luke in October of 2014, claiming that she had been “sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally abused” over the course of their 10 year working relationship. The producer then fired back with a counter-lawsuit, claiming Kesha is lying and trying to extort him to get out of their legally binding contract.
As we initially reported in December, some of Kesha’s fans are planning to protest in front of the NYC courthouse where the latest hearing will be taking place.

“Calling all Kesha fans and human rights warriors: we’re going to protest to #FreeKesha during her next hearing! We’ll meet at 9 a.m. on Jan. 26. at the New York State Supreme Courthouse, 60 Centre St, New York, NY. Hope to see you there! BYO glitter,” the latest #FreeKesha online petition update reads, which currently has over 108,000 signatures.
“Pop music fans are sending a clear message that they won’t stand for Sony’s completely unethical and inhumane treatment of a woman who was brave enough to speak up about sexual abuse,” protest organizer Michael Eisele told The Huffington Post.
At the end of December, Kesha returned to the stage with a band, dubbed Yeast Infection, to perform hits like “Blow” and “Timber” in Nashville. Most recently, she was spotted on set in New Orleans filming for the upcoming comedy, Bad Moms.
