Kesha sends support to JoJo
Kesha has sent a message of support to JoJo.
The 25-year-old singer - who is gearing up to release her first album in 10 years, 'Mad Love' on October 14 - recently opened up about feeling messed up "psychologically" after her former record label told her to "lose weight fast" or risk not having her album released.
And Kesha, 29, who is locked in her own battle with her label Kemosabe after accusing producer Dr Luke of sexual abuse, took to Twitter to write: "I wanna shout out to @iamjojo & say I'm proud of you. Been following your story. Ur STRONG. They can't break you and they don't own you (sic)."
JoJo replied to Kesha with supportive words of her own, writing: "Hi wonderful woman. Our voices are OURS. We cannot be made to sit down & shut up. U have the victory! All my LOVE. @kesharose have an AMAZING time on tour! Soak in the epic love your fans have for U + how many of us are on ur team. thinking of you. xX (sic)."
In an interview with Popsugar, JoJo recently revealed her past experiences, explaining: "Here's something that I agreed to do that ended up messing with me psychologically. I was under a lot of pressure with a company I was at previously and they wanted me to lose weight fast.
"So they got me with a nutritionist and had me, like, on all these supplements, and I was injecting myself - this is a common thing 'the girls' do all the way - it makes your body only need certain calories, so I ate 500 calories a day. It was the most unhealthy thing I've ever done.
"I felt like, 'If I don't do this, my album won't come out.' Which it didn't! So it's not like it even worked!"
However, JoJo put the weight back on, but now she's happier within herself and has learnt not to follow other people's opinions.
She said: "I listen to other people's opinions. Listening and following are different things. I think listening and showing respect to people you respect . . . it works for me. What you think about yourself and the decisions you make is what's most important."
JoJo's new studio album 'Mad Love' will be released on Atlantic Records and is the follow-up to 2006's 'The High Road'.
