Though she’s involved in an ongoing legal battle with Dr. Luke and says she feels like she’s “fighting an uphill fight some days,” Kesha sent a positive personal note to her fans.

The singer – who recently returned to the stage at Coachella and charted on the Hot 100 with her Zedd collaboration, “True Colors” -- showed off her growing confidence in a series of intimate pictures posted to Instagram on Sunday (May 15).

“I have been battling depression and an eating disorder for a while now. my career is in a strange place and it feels like I'm fighting an uphill fight some days. but I have decided to take my life back. my freedom. my happiness. my voice. my worth,” Kesha wrote alongside an image of herself facing the ocean in a triumphant stance (which is somewhat NSFW).

“I will not just f---ing be quiet and hide. today I will say f--- it and live. So F--- it. today I'm making that choice. AND IM HAPPY AS A DAMN CLAM,” she said.

“and also a big ol f--- u if u wanna hate on my body. just remember that makes u look like a dickhead,” she added.

“this water is the same color of my aura apparently,” she captioned another oceanside picture.
