If there is anyone that deserves a vacation, it's Kesha. 

The 29-year-old has been embroiled in an ongoing public battle with producer Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald, a fight that has kept her out of the studio for nearly three years. But, after returning to the stage and releasing a new collaboration with Zedd last month, Kesha has an inspiring message for fans and haters alike: She's taking her voice back. 

"I have been battling depression and an eating disorder for a while now," she captioned an Instagram photo Sunday of her silhouette flipping off the camera in front of a sunset. "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."

"Today I will say fuck it and live. So FUUUUUUUUCK it. today I'm making that choice. AND IM HAPPY AS A DAMN CLAM," she continued.

She then turned her attention to the body-shaming trolls who regularly fill her comment section up with toxicity. "... a big ol fuck u if u wanna hate on my body," she wrote, "just remember that makes u look like a dickhead."

This isn't the first time — and likely not the last — that Kesha has publicly fought body shamers. In fact, earlier in May, she took to Instagram to address the fact that she didn't have a thigh gap.  

"Byeeeeeeee haters and body shamers. bye byeeeeeee. I'm hot when my ass is big. I'm hot when it small. GET OVER IT," she captioned a photo from the Humane Society of the United States gala where she performed a powerful cover of Lady Gaga's "Til It Happens to You." 

Kesha has a message for the dickheads hiding behind their phones: Don't waste your breath. She's too busy relaxing on an island somewhere, swimming with whale sharks and getting back into the music scene, a throne fans can't wait to see her reclaim.
