Kesha suffers from a severe eating disorder and has constantly gained and lost weight over the years since she has been in the limelight.
She also has said that Dr. Luke is one of the reasons for her eating disorder as he body-shamed her and told her to lose weight when he signed her. Kesha has been to rehab to cure this disorder.
She attended Franklin High School and Brentwood High School, but it was claimed that she did not fit in because of her unconventional style.
During her high school days, she used to play trumpets and saxophone in the marching band. She described herself in an interview with NPR as being a diligent school.
Later on, she chose a music career and made a further step in her career in music. Talking about her son’s writing classes, she learned the skills of writing songs from her mother. They would together discuss and co-wrote songs.
At the age of 18, Kesha was signed on by Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Entertainment for her first big breakthrough. Dr. Luke was impressed by her demo recordings and said that he saw an artist with furious energy and skills to make it big in the music world.
Kesha provided background vocals for Paris Hilton right around that time for her single ‘Nothing in the world’. She also contributed to Britney Spears’s ‘Lace and Leather’ which helped her polish her skills as a musician.
These small gigs were getting her in touch with the big stars, but her own personal claim to fame came when she provided vocals for ‘Right Round’ by Flo Rida, which was produced by Dr. Luke in 2008.
The song was a groundbreaking success and the stage was set for Kesha to become a star musician. The song was a no.1 hot 100 hit for a long time and was later featured in the hit comedy The Hangover’.
Kesha then signed on with RCA and in 2010, she came up with her debut album ‘Animal’ which proved to be a massive hit and particularly one song from the album ‘Tik Tok’ set all the music charts on fire and Kesha became an instant celebrity. The song, to this day, holds the record to be among the most downloaded digital singles in history.
The album featured collaborations with several big artists such as Dr. Luke, Max Martin, and Benny Blanco and climbed up to the top of Billboard 200.
Later in 2010, Kesha introduced her very first extended play ‘Cannibal’ to her fans. It featured nine songs in total and two songs particularly titled ‘We R Who We R’ and ‘Blow’ made their entry in several charts.
She followed this overwhelming success with the release of ‘I am the dance commander, I command you to dance’ in 2011.

Dr. Luke released Kesha’s second studio album which was titled ‘Warrior’ and influenced by rock music.
It followed the success of Kesha’s first album by constantly staying in the top 10 charts of most lists. Two singles ‘C’ mon’ and ‘Crazy Kids’ were met with critical and commercial acclaim, making Kesha one of the most influential musicians of this generation.
Kesha then went on to a world tour with Pitbull, and the duo later came together for a single titled ‘Timber’ which quickly became her third top single.
Her rising career came to a shocking halt in 2014, when she accused her mentor Dr. Luke of mental, physical and emotional abuse along with bad business practices. The entire scene threatened to destroy her career and she became inactive for quite some time.
She returned to performing in April 2016, when she performed at ‘Coachella’ for ‘True Colours’. The studio version of the song was released later that year.
