LONDON — Pop singer Kesha broke down in tears when she performed Lady Gaga’s song about sexual assault, “Till It Happens To You” at an event honoring the track’s co-writer Diane Warren.
The “Tik Tok” hitmaker, who, earlier this year, was denied release from her recording contract with Dr Luke, real name Lukasz Gottwald, despite claiming she had been abused by the producer — dedicated her appearance at the Humane Society’s Los Angeles Gala to all victims of abuse and couldn’t keep her emotions in check throughout her appearance, reported Femalefirst.
Taking to the stage alongside Warren, Kesha told the audience at Hollywood’s Paramount Studios: “I want to dedicate this song to every man, woman, child, animal, that has ever been abused…”
After singing the Oscar-nominated song, which featured in “The Hunting Ground”, a documentary about sexual assault, the 29-year-old star was seen struggling for breath as she wept while hugging Diane.
Last month, the ‘Die Young’ hitmaker released her first single since she lost her legal battle, with the new version of Zedd’s ‘True Colors’ making her first new music in over three years.
The besieged singer is currently locked in a bitter legal battle with her former mentor and producer Dr. Luke after claiming he physically and emotionally abused her during their 10-year musical partnership.Follow @gorkhapost
