Kesha Biography, Net Worth, Weight Gain, Where Is She Now?

American-born singer and songwriter, Kesha, owes her popularity to talent, hard work and persistence. She first gained attention with her unpaid and uncredited appearance on Flo Rida’s song Right Round which became a hit in 2009. Kesha is also an ordained minister and a gay rights activist – giving her support by joining the rainbow community in marriage and also speaking out against the violation of gay rights.

Kesha: Biography

Kesha was born in Los Angeles on the 1st of March 1987. She attended both Brentwood High School and Franklin High School where she found it difficult to fit into the academic environment because of her unconventional ways. The rising star only felt useful when she was playing musical instruments like the saxophone or the trumpet in the school’s marching band. After landing a music publishing deal, Kesha’s mom relocated the family to Nashville, Tennessee in 1991.

The young singer learnt the art of songwriting from her mom who would patiently sit, discuss and co-write songs with her. Kesha’s mother, Pebe, is a songwriter best known for writing Old Flames Can’t Hold a Candle to You which later became a hit.

Growing up, Kesha has always answered with ambiguity when faced with questions about her sexuality. In 2013, she told Seventeen Magazine that she does not just love men, she loves people and gender should not be an issue.

Career & Net Worth

The celebrated songbird has accumulated a total net worth of $5 million, although the amount is still under review. She has recorded successful sales of her records both in the US and all over the world. In 2013, the statistics of her record sales came to a total of 59 million for America and 76 million worldwide.

The singer got started at the age of 18 with Dr Luke’s music label called Kemosabe Entertainment. She also made an appearance in her friend Katy Perry’s music video for I kissed a Girl. She was featured as a background singer in Britney SpearsLace and Leather which was produced by Dr Luke but her big break came with Flo Rida’s No. 1 hit Right Round which was released in 2009 and subsequently, she signed a contract with RCA and her debut single Tik Tok was released. Her first album titled Animal made it to the top of the charts after its release in 2010. Two years later in 2012, her second album titled Warrior came to light and was also a success. However, 2014 was not a good year for the artist because that was when her ongoing legal battles with producer Dr Luke began.

The entertainer has also made some foray into acting; her television debut was made on the set of the animated comedy series known as Robot Chicken in 2013. In 2015, she made an appearance in a single episode of Jane the Virgin and in the same year, she had a minor part in the musical fantasy film, Jem and the Holograms. She also appeared on the popular hit television show Nashville as a guest star.

Weight Gain

The talk about the entertainer’s weight gain has caused her more harm than anybody can imagine. Kesha’s health was endangered as a result of the media attention on her weight and it was so hard to cope that she found refuge in a rehabilitation home because of a resultant eating disorder. She battled with anorexia and bulimia, resulting from all the criticism about her newly robust body figure, even her producer Dr Luke cruelly compared her body to that of a refrigerator and told her to lose some weight after signing her on. This particular careless comment worsened the singer’s condition and almost pushed her over the edge. Kesha had to spend two months in rehab and was released on the 6th of March 2014.

Where Is She Now?

The singer is still keeping things active with her music and television appearances. Since her release from rehab, she has performed at Coachella and guest starred in the series, Jeff and Some Aliens. She also appeared in a fantasy movie called A Ghost Story which marked her debut on the big screen. Kesha is expected to play a major role in the upcoming animated series titled Highly Gifted.
