Kesha opened up about her lawsuit with producer Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald while performing in Philadelphia on Tuesday night. 

The singer, who’s been involved in a legal battle with Gottwald for the past two years, was performing at Gabby Giffords’ Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC event following the second night of the Democratic National Convention. 

While she was onstage, the 29-year-old “Blow” singer took a moment to address her legal struggles, calling the situation “f**king horrible.” 

“I feel like if you’re a human being, you go through pain. And you go through hurt. And every single one of us knows that emotion. I don’t know if you guys know what I am going through. I’m going through a lawsuit. It’s f**king horrible,” she said. 

The singer also spoke about gun control, noting that while we can’t control people’s emotions or actions, “we can control who we give the fucking weapons to.” 

“I think the universe is screaming at us that there needs to be a change and we have to f**king listen,” she said, according to E! News. “I do think love is something as humans we all have and I hope heals us. I really believe that love and empathy, it can heal us.”

Kesha has been quite open about her lawsuit as of late, and she’s never been one to hold back on speaking about issues she’s passionate about. During her emotional speech at the 2016 Human Rights Campaign Nashville Equality Dinner in March, she echoed a similar sentiment. 

The singer thanked everyone for their support through her lawsuit before talking about her strong connection to the LGBTQ community and urging the crowd to “love each other.” 

“I’ve met many members of the LGBT community, and some very, very close friends, who have come close to taking their own lives because of the abuse they’ve had to deal with, and that is heartbreaking,” she said. “I don’t want to live in a world where we treat each other like that.”

As she held back tears, the singer added, “That’s why my message has always been about being yourself. And we really have to love each other and support each other.”
