Kesha may be still in a legal battle with her ex-producer Dr. Luke, but she’s not afraid to put her middle finger to her lawsuit!
The singer started a chant with the crowd, middle fingers ablaze, at her first “F—k The World” tour stop at The Waterfront at Harrah’s, Atlantic City’s newest mega concert venue.
“I’m stuck in a lawsuit from hell!” the 29-year-old said as fans shouted “Free Kesha!” “I was sitting around waiting to die…I was slowly f—king dying because I didn’t get to connect with you guys!”
“Tonight we don’t care about any problems,”she continued. “Leave any s*** that’s bothering you outside these four walls. Your rent. Your phone bill. Ex boyfriends. My lawsuit! Put your finger in the air!”
The “Tik Tok” singer also thanked her fans for sticking by her during her “hardest f—king years” at the August 6 concert.
“You guys stuck by me during the hardest f***ing years of my life. I’m serious I could not have made it through without you,” she told the crowd.
She added that she “can’t put out” her new music, but “looked through her legal papers” to see what she could sing.
“I’m sick and tired of hearing I can’t sing,” she said. “This really sums up my life right now. When you’re stuck you gotta have hope and you gotta have faith this one’s called ‘I Shall Be Released.'”
Kesha and Dr. Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald, have been in a bitter legal battle over breaking her recording contract and accusations of sexual assault and abuse.
Her sold-out show, her first since the lawsuit and the venue’s first-ever concert, concluded with an appearance at Harrah’s The Pool After Dark where she partied at her VIP table with boyfriend Brad Ashenfelter.
