'I didn’t think in 2024 people still body shamed but. i am so proud of my body. she’s been through a lot,' the pop star declared on her Instagram.

In the second photograph, Kesha is standing on a balcony overlooking crystal blue waters in a thigh-high cut black bikini, accessorized with a white robe and baseball cap reading, “I’d rather be ghost hunting.”

Without explaining where, when, or how she was body-shamed, Kesha nevertheless spoke directly to those she felt had attacked her.

She continued the post with, “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.

She signed off declaring, “in the mean time, hate me harder b----:).”

The singer has also opened up in the past about how she sought treatment for an eating disorder.

In 2017, she told The The Sun she almost died from eating so little saying, “If you feel a certain way about yourself, your body — it can kill you. I almost died. I came closer than I ever knew.

"By the time I entered rehab, they were surprised I hadn’t had a stroke — because I hadn’t consumed enough.”
