Kesha isn't letting any haters drag her down.

"I didn’t think in 2024 people still body shamed but. I am so proud of my body," she penned in the post alongside two snaps of herself as she rocked a black bikini. "She’s been through a lot. She’s torn her ACL on stage and finished the show. She’s held my f------ broken heart together."

"To those who think you’re shaming me, you’re actually making me feel very powerful. So, to you, I hope you one day feel whole enough to not tear other women down. In the meantime, hate me harder b----:) 💪🏻," Kesha concluded the update.

Kesha got love from friends and fans in the comments section.

The chart-topper has been candid about struggling with an eating disorder and body image issues in the past. "When I compared myself to others, I would read more mean comments, which only fed my anxiety and depression," she explained in a 2017 essay. "Seeing paparazzi photos of myself and the accompanying catty commentary fueled my eating disorder."

"The sick irony was that when I was at some of the lowest points in my life, I kept hearing how much better I looked. I knew I was destroying my body with my eating disorder, but the message I was getting was that I was doing great," Kesha noted.

Kesha has been open about her past eating disorder and body image issues.

The "Praying" songstress also pointed out how social media has played a major role in how she viewed herself in the past. "When I think about the kind of bullying I dealt with as a child and teen, it seems almost quaint compared with what goes on today," she wrote. "The amount of body shaming and baseless slut-shaming online makes me sick. I know from personal experience how comments can mess up somebody’s self-confidence and sense of self-worth. I have felt so unlovable after reading cruel words written by strangers who don’t know a thing about me."

"In the past couple of years I’ve grown up a lot. I’ve realized that once you take the step to help yourself, you’re going to be so happy you did,” she said at the time. “Taking the time to work on yourself requires bravery. Trying to change your life based on other people’s thoughts can drive you crazy. You have to figure out what makes you feel good and what keeps you in a positive headspace."

Teen Vogue published Kesha's 2017 essay.
