Kesha

Kesha is heading into 2017 with a handful of resolutions.

As you know, the 29-year-old has been through the ringer this year as she fights to get out from under the control of her contract with Dr. Luke – so it's not surprising she's ready for a fresh start.

Part of the Die Young singer's plan for the next trip around the sun includes "less screens" and "less Internet."

While this might sound like our worst nightmare, the blonde songstress was seen in El Lay on Tuesday (pictured above), the same day she posted a note to fans saying being more present in her "real life" may help with her anxiety and depression.

Kesha's had quite a year.

After a lengthy legal battle with her accused rapist Dr. Luke, the pop star was ultimately denied her injunction bid earlier this year.

And while she's vowed to never stop fighting, the 29-year-old remains under Sony's legal domain.

And on Thursday, the blonde reflected on her emotional year in a new Instagram post.

She shared a black-and-white selfie (above) and dished just a teeny bit more about that exciting duet, writing in the caption:

Kesha Recalls Being Verbally Abused & Body Shamed By Dr. Luke In New Interview: 'I Tried To And Almost Killed Myself'

| Filed under: Legal MattersRehabKeshaHealth

Kesha speaks out!

UPDATE 7:06 PM EST: Dr. Luke's attorney Christine Lepera released the following statement in response to the article:

"The New York Times Magazine profile piece that ran today unfortunately has many inaccuracies. This article is part of a continuing coordinated press campaign by Kesha to mislead the public, mischaracterize what has transpired over the last two years, and gain unwarranted sympathy. Kesha filed a shock and awe complaint of alleged abuse against Luke Gottwald in 2014 — for contract negotiation leverage. It backfired. She never intended to prove her claims. She has voluntarily withdrawn her California complaint, after having her counterclaims in New York for alleged abuse dismissed. Nevertheless, she continues to maliciously level false accusations in the press to attack our client. The reality is that for well over two years, Kesha chose—and it was entirely her choice—not to provide her label with any music. Kesha was always free to move forward with her music, and an album could have been released long ago had she done so. She exiled herself. It was not until months after the denial of her injunction motion – for the first time in June and July 2016–that Kesha started to provide the label with music. She provided 22 recordings created without any label consultation which were not in compliance with her contract, were in various stages of development, and which Kesha's own team acknowledged needed work. Then, and for the last several months, the label has been in discussions with Kesha and her team to choose the best music, create additional music, and work on the tracks created. A&R representatives of both Kemosabe and RCA have provided Kesha with detailed feedback in writing and in person on the tracks she provided to help her further develop the material. Kesha has also agreed with Kemosabe and RCA on a list of producers who will work with her on these tracks, a studio has been reserved for these sessions, and a budget for certain work provided. The creation of an album is a process, however what has clearly been communicated is that the aim is for a release date as early as possible. It is in the economic best interest of the label and Mr. Gottwald to put out a top selling album, and that takes time. In fact, the label suggested an early release of an advance Kesha track. It was Kesha's team who rejected this proposal.Kesha's claim in the article that she has no ability to earn money outside of touring is completely rebutted by well documented public court records which apparently escaped the article's attention."

Amid her legal battle against Dr. Luke, Kesha is opening up about the alleged verbal abuse she says led her to checking herself into rehab for an eating disorder in 2014.

In a new interview with The New York Times, the songstress candidly shared how the body shaming affected her:

It looks like there's hope for Kesha's career after all!

While the singer had previously been denied her injunction bid to get out of her recording contract with alleged sexual abuser Dr. Luke, it appears all hope is not lost.

Sony opened up about the potential project in a statement, saying:

"Creating a new album takes time, and everyone's goal is to deliver a high quality album consistent with Kesha's past releases. We hope to share exciting new music with Kesha's fans soon."

Since her courtroom loss, the 29-year-old has released a collaboration with Zedd and teased a "f*ck off" duet with an unnamed Grammy-winner.

Plus, her legal team said back in August that the songstress had submitted almost 30 new tracks to Luke's Kemosabe Records.

And, Sony is insisting that everyone involved is working "to keep the process moving forward."

However, the TiK ToK performer's attorney, Daniel Petrocelli, isn't entirely convinced that Sony is serious, saying progress hadn't been made until after their most recent court appearance:
