Kesha Promises to Step Back From Social Media in 2017; Lady Gaga and Katy Perry Now Embroiled in Singer's Legal Feud with Dr. Luke
Singer Kesha (stylized as "Ke$ha") updated her fans by saying that she will be logging off from social media to take care of herself. The singer deserves the break after the stressful events that have occurred to her since 2014.
According to Billboard, Kesha took to Instagram to say goodbye to her fans before she takes her social media hiatus. In the post, the singer apologized for unfollowing some fans on Instagram, and she announced a resolution to "attempt to be more present" in her real life. The caption on Kesha's post read: "I'm not disappearing, just trying to be less obsessed with the Internet. I have been reading about the emotional effects of social media and it seems that it may help my anxiety and depression if I am more present." Kesha concluded, "Less screens. less internet. life is one big experiment. let's see how it goes."
Fans of the singer need not worry, though. Kesha promises that despite her social media hiatus, she will continue to create and hopefully share new music with her loyal listeners.
Meanwhile, E! Online has revealed that Lady Gaga and Katy Perry are now involved in Kesha's lawsuit against Dr. Luke, an American record producer and songwriter. On Jan. 4, E! News got its hands on new court documents from a status hearing that took place last Dec. 4 which featured new evidence regarding the matter. In October 2014, Kesha filed a civil suit against the record producer for causing her "emotional distress, gender-based hate crimes and employment discrimination."
The documents found by E! News claim that the judge "received and sealed a text message" that Kesha sent to Lady Gaga in April 2016. The text can allegedly be shared with Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. The document states that "Gottwald may share with Lady Gaga and Katy Perry the April 2016 text that Kesha sent to Lady Gaga, which Kesha turned over in discovery."
Still, the text message's context, content and how it will be used in the lawsuit remains unknown. The attorneys of both parties will decide whether the texts will be unveiled in court.
