“The name Kesha is actually a Hungarian family name that Lagan would have been named if he had been a girl. But since he wasn’t, the name is actually pronounced ke-tuh-cha in Hungarian, and so I decided to make it easier and to make it Kesha, and that’s where Kesha came from.”

There was also an update regarding her ongoing legal battle.
