As her legal battle with music producer Dr. Luke continued, Kesha released her first album in five years, Rainbow, in August. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200, and even as long as she’s waited for that return to the spotlight, Kesha sounds a little surprised by the whole thing. As she told Rolling Stone in a new profile, “I made a record I’m extremely proud of, from the bottom of my guts—I excavated the most gnarly lyrics that were so difficult for me.
