Kesha, the embattled rock-rap star embroiled in a legal battle with her producer, accepted the Billboard Magazine Women in Music Trailblazer Award this week with an emotional and honest acceptance speech.

Speaking candidly about her eating disorder struggles and other debilitating manifestations of long term abuse, Kesha, also explained that "when I was very, very sick and getting sicker, I would hear about how much better and better I was looking, and that is a problem."

Dressed in very conservative white suit, Kesha, who is hardly recognizable from the images in her music videos told the audience that she felt challenged every day to get up and especially today when she just didn't feel like getting dressed, putting her boots on and getting up here in front of everyone.

And for the masses who listen to her music, singalong to the tunes, who understand the war, who buy her CD's, who struggle with eating disorders and cope with internal scars of violence and abuse, who fight depression and shame every day, to get up, to fight against other incapacitating and subjugating emotions that beg for an end, beg to be silenced she ended her speech reminding everyone, "If I'm lucky enough to have a voice someone will listen to, then I should use it for good, for truth."

"Life is hard sometimes and things don't always work out the way you planned it. But if you keep on believing and you keep working hard, and you keep fighting and you keep showing up for yourself, you can move mountains."
