'I often felt like a misfit so then I often gravitated towards other social outsiders. Many of them in the LGBT community,' says the Tik Tok singer.
Kesha has spoken openly about the difficulties she has recently endured, while accepting an award for LGBT visibility.
The 29-year-old American singer appeared tearful during her acceptance speech at an event organized by the Nashville Human Rights Campaign in her hometown.
"As many of you know I am going through some personal things that have been really intense and hard lately and I just want to say thank you for any support I have received," the Tik Tok singer said.
Last month, a judge ruled Kesha must continue her contract with Dr Luke, the music producer who she claims raped, drugged and psychologically tormented her for a decade.
