Kesha Talks Gun Control, ‘Hurt’ and ‘Pain’ of ‘F*cking Horrible’ Lawsuit

Despite finally preparing to tour new material, Kesha is still enmeshed in an ugly legal battle with Dr. Luke over allegations of abuse. As a result, when performing live, Kesha has had to be rather mum about the ordeal. Here’s what she can say: “It’s fucking horrible.” Kesha performed at an event for Gabby Giffords’s Americans for Responsible Solutions super-pac on Tuesday, and she emphasized the need for gun control while acknowledging the pain of her own experiences. She said: “I feel like if you’re a human being, you go through pain, and you go through hurt. And every single one of us knows that emotion. I don’t know if you guys know what I am going through. I’m going through a lawsuit. It’s fucking horrible. We as a nation, we can’t control who feels hurt … You can’t control every single person and know how they’re gonna deal with things and know if they’re gonna pick up a weapon.” One thing we can control, according to Kesha, is “Who we give the fucking weapons to.”
