On Saturday, performer Kesha took the time to address a troll on Instagram who thought it was really important that she know he thinks she's an ugly "whore." She posted a picture of herself at the beach, ass facing the camera, and assured him that his opinion had been heard loud and clear, and that she seriously couldn't care less.
The caption to the picture reads:
dear @jackknife76 I see that you would very much like me to know that you think I'm ugly, and also a "whore". well, I understand that that is your opinion, but I disagree. I'm not perfect but I'm pretty fucking magical. and also, I am not, in fact, a whore. also bullying someone who has struggled publicly with body issues is pretty mean. thank god I'm in a place in my life where I feel empowered to address your nasty comments instead of letting them destroy me. so. on behalf of anyone anywhere who struggles with body image, STOP IT. my body is not your business. in conclusion, kiss my magical imperfect ass
Damn straight. Kesha, who is still in the middle of a legal battle with the label Sony and producer Dr. Luke, has too much going on in her life to listen to randos on the Internet weigh in on her body.
Kesha's been pretty candid about her struggles with body image in the past, telling Vogue during a 2015 interview:
I went to an eating-disorder specific rehab site where a nutritionist taught me that food is a positive thing for your body. I realized being healthy is the most important thing I can do for myself. . . Every day I have to look in the mirror and make the choice to be kind to myself. This is who I am—I have to love that.
Trolls can say whatever they want—that won't make Kesha's ass (and the rest of her body) any less magical.
