Kesha has reached out to singer JoJo after she opened up about the lengths she was made to go to to lose weight as a young popstar. In an interview JoJo claimed a record label made her take injections and supplements in order to lose weight, during the early days of her career.
Speaking to Popsugar JoJo said: “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.”
JoJo added that she eventually gained all the weight back and said she felt horrible that she subscribed to a lifestyle that other people wanted her to live. "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!".
On twitter Kesha, who has been public about the pressures she was under as a young, female singer, tweeted: “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.” JoJo later responded by tweeting: “Hi wonderful woman. Our voices are OURS. We cannot be made to sit down & shut up. U have the victory! All my LOVE.”
