Kesha 'Tried to & Almost Killed' Herself Amid Dr. Luke's Alleged Abuse

Kesha takes the cover of The New York Times Magazine‘s culture issue.

Here’s what the 29-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On the perception that she’s ‘fun’: “Something that was always told to me is: ‘You’re fun. We’re going to capitalize on that.’ I was like, ‘I am fun, but I’m a lot of other things.’ But Luke’s like: ‘No, you’re fun. That’s all you are for your first record.’”

On producer Dr. Luke altering “Tik Tok”: “I remember specifically him saying: ‘Make it more dumb. Make it more stupid. Make it more simple, just dumb.’ I was like, O.K., ‘Boys try to touch my junk. Going to get crunk. Everybody getting drunk,’ or whatever, and he was like, ‘Perfect.’”

On Dr. Luke’s alleged verbal abuse: “I was under immense pressure to starve myself. And I tried to and almost killed myself in the process.”
