Kesha is ''reclaiming'' her own happiness.
The 32-year-old singer has just unveiled her new album 'High Road' after a tough few years, which has seen her struggle with a rocky few years after being embroiled in a legal battle with producer and record label executive Dr. Luke in court over her contract as well as claiming he drugged her, raped her and emotionally abused her for a decade, something which he vehemently denies, but she is on the up with her new music.
She said: ''I think it's about reclaiming my happiness and my voice and all aspects of my life, and not living in the tragedy of what everyone knows I've been through. Kind of a defiance against being stuck and pigeonholed in one place forever, because of one situation.''
And the 'Tik Tok' hitmaker hopes her new album is a ''defiant statement'' about her ability to still create happy music despite the heartache she has been through.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal magazine, she added: ''I want High Road to be my defiant statement that I can still make happy music, I can still make pop music, and I can still be happy, and at the same time have the juxtaposition of the really emotional and intense - it's not that the vulnerability isn't there, but I really believe that High Road is the first record I've put out where I feel like I'm not trying to prove anything to anyone. I'm not trying to be anything that I'm not. I feel like everyone should be allowed to showcase all sides of their personalities, especially artists, and not just get stuck in one pigeonhole.''
'Acoustic Soul' was released on this day (March 27th) in 2001.
