Kesha took a swipe at Diddy on Sunday, while performing at the Coachella music festival in Indio, California.

The pop star was a surprise guest of singer Reneé Rapp.

After taking the stage, Kesha belted out her 2009 hit “Tik Tok” and changed the opening lyric to “Wake up in the morning like f–k P. Diddy.” She and Rapp then raised their middle fingers in the air for emphasis.

The original lyrics to “Tik Tok” were “Wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy.” The Bad Boy Records founder even had a feature on the single, saying:  “Hey, what’s up girl?”

But it looks like Kesha is done with Diddy.

She also took to X/Twitter and posted in all caps: “WAKE UP IN THE MORNING LIKE F–K P DIDDY.”

Kesha appeared to be showing solidarity with Diddy’s accusers.

The singer has previously said she was abused by another powerful man in the music industry.

She accused famed music producer Dr. Luke, born Lukasz Gottwald, in a 2014 lawsuit of drugging and raping her earlier in her career.

Dr. Luke denied the allegations and filed a countersuit against Kesha for defamation. After a nine-year legal battle, the two released a statement in June 2023, saying they’d reached an undisclosed settlement.

Diddy is facing a string of lawsuits alleging rape, domestic violence, harassment, intimidation, and other crimes.

Last month, federal agents with the Department of Homeland Security simultaneously raided his mansions in Los Angeles and Miami in connection with a sex trafficking investigation.

During the raid on the mogul’s L.A. estate, heavily-armed agents escorted people out of the home in handcuffs, including the rapper’s sons Justin and Christian “King” Combs.

Diddy has maintained his innocence, and his attorney Aaron Dyer called the raids a “witch hunt based on meritless accusations made in civil lawsuits.”
