Kesha isn't done fighting.
On Monday, the pop powerhouse filed legal papers to take her battle with Dr. Luke — AKA Lukasz Gottwald — to an appeals court.
Last month, the blonde was denied her injunction bid to get out of her recording contract with the Sony producer, who she claims sexually assaulted and abused her.

The 29-year-old's lawyer, Mark Geragos, wrote in the docs that keeping his client in her contract is similar to slavery:
"First, the Court erred in basing its decision on its finding that Kesha could record without interference from Gottwald. Although it recognized that 'slavery was done away with a long time ago' and that '[y]ou can't force someone to work . . . in a situation in which they don't want to work,' the Court's ruling requiring Kesha to work for Gottwald's companies, purportedly without his involvement, does just that."
The attorney also explained that, if let out of her contract with her alleged abuser, Kesha could compensate Sony Music Entertainment for breaking her deal.
He argued that the judge didn't consider that alternative option would allow the singer to be free while also giving the music giant the ability to still get their money back, saying:
