Kesha has hit back at trolls who have been shaming her over her figure.

The 37-year-old pop star has revealed she's been inundated with hate from "body shaming" trolls but she's adamant the abuse just makes her "feel powerful" because she's "proud" of her body because it's "been through a lot".

In a post on Instagram, Kesha shared several pictures of herself wearing a bikini, and wrote: "I didn’t think in 2024 people still body shamed but I am so proud of my body.

"She’s been through a lot. She’s torn her ACL [anterior cruciate ligament] 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 mean time, hate me harder b****."

Kesha has previously struggled with eating disorders and opened up about her battle in a candid interview with Rolling Stone magazine back in 2017.

She explained: "If I ever did [eat], I felt very ashamed, and I would make myself throw up because I'd think, 'Oh, my God, I can't believe I actually did that horrible thing. I'm so ashamed of myself because I don't deserve to eat food'.

"[As I got sicker, people] would just be like, 'Oh my gosh, keep doing whatever you're doing! You look so beautiful, so stunning'."

Kesha hit rock bottom when attending a friend's dinner party and spent the evening pretending to eat and working out where she could hide her food, explaining: "I remember just shaking because I was so fed up, so anxious, and I was just mad that I had let myself get to that point."

She eventually got well after spending time in rehab working with a nutritionist.

She added of her recovery: "I did just take my life into my own hands and choose life over a slow, painful, shameful self-imposed death. And I need to stop just being so f****** mean to myself."
