Kesha posts sultry, NSFW topless photo on Instagram

She's had a rough few years, but if Instagram is any indication, Kesha's back to feeling confident as ever!

The star, 30, posted an ultra-sexy nearly-nude photo on Sunday ahead of a performance in upstate New York. In the NSFW photo, Kesha barely covers her nude breast with one hand, her bottom half covered only by a gray towel.

"Pre show," she captioned it with emojis of champagne, skulls and rocket ships.

The blonde bombshell often posts Instagram selfies, perhaps in part to remind fans that she's doing okay even while continuing her legal battle against record producer Dr. Luke. Kesha has claimed that Dr. Luke, a well-known producer who's repped artists including Bon Jovi, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj, subjected her to rape, sexual assault, civil harassment and other disturbing crimes.

Despite messy court proceedings that prevent her from releasing solo studio recordings, Kesha has continued to perform live across the country, and her fans are as devoted as ever. She's also collaborated with artists including Zedd and The Flaming Lips.
