Kesha is going through a lot right now.

The 29-year-old is in the middle of an ongoing legal battle with Sony and producer Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald, whom she has accused of sexual assault and battery.

The singer is due back in court on May 16, but in the meantime, she's trying to enjoy life on her own terms. That means taking a dip in the pool at L'Horizon Resort in Palm Springs, wearing a bikini and giving no fucks about what anyone has to say about that.

"Not a slave to perfection right now. fuck it. ***body shamers please fuck off ain't nobody got time for it," she captioned the photo.

The singer, who completed treatment for an eating disorder in 2014, is more than familiar with body shamers. (Her mother Pebe Sebert previously singled out Gottwald as one of her daughter's most unrelenting critics and claimed he once compared the singer to a "refrigerator" at one of her video shoots.)

Last March, the singer opened up to Elle UK about her decision to seek help for her eating disorder:

I've always tried to be a crusader for loving yourself, but I'd been finding it harder and harder to do personally. I felt like part of my job was to be as skinny as possible, and to make that happen, I had been abusing my body. I just wasn't giving it the energy it needed to keep me healthy and strong. My brain told me to just suck it up and press on, but in my heart I knew that something had to change. So I made the decision to practice what I preach. I put my career on hold and sought treatment. I had to learn to treat my body with respect.
