She woke in the morning ready to denounce P. Diddy.

Kesha surprised Coachella 2024 attendees when she joined Reneè Rapp’s set as her guest in Indio, Calif., on Sunday.

The duo broke out into Kesha’s 2009 hit “Tik Tok,” but instead of singing the song’s original lyrics: “wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy,” the singer, 37, altered it slightly and sang: “wake up in the morning like f—k P. Diddy.”

In a viral video posted on X (formerly Twitter), the “Cannibal” singer and the “Mean Girls” star can be seen raising their middle fingers to the crowd.

Several online users were excited about Kesha’s return to the stage.

“Oh Kesha, we are ready for your comeback,” one fan gushed.

“Kesha being back is exactly what 2024 needed,” a second user said.

“When two queens join forces to maximize their joint slay,” praised a third person.

A fourth person noted that the lyric change “flows perfectly off the tongue,” while a fifth joked that she made the hit “even more iconic.

This is not the first time that Kesha has changed the lyrics to her song to slam Sean “Diddy” Combs.

In November 2023, the “We R Who We R” hitmaker removed the disgraced rapper’s name when she performed the song during a show in Oakland, Calif., during her Only Love tour.

During the show, Kesha changed the lyrics to: “Wake up in the morning feeling just like me.”

The change in that performance came right after Combs, 54, and ex-girlfriend Casandra Ventura settled a lawsuit out of court that claimed the rapper had trafficked, raped and viciously beat her throughout their on-and-off 13-year relationship. The mogul denied the allegations at the time.

Cassie’s situation is similar to the one Kesha went through in 2014 when she sued music producer Dr. Luke — real name Lukasz Gottwald — claiming he “sexually, physically, verbally, and emotionally abused (her) to the point where (she) nearly lost her life.”

Kesha claimed the music producer drugged and raped her at a party in 2005 and emotionally tormented her for years after. He denied the allegations.

The latest change in the song’s lyrics comes after Diddy was accused of trafficking and harassing one of his former employees, Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones.

In the lawsuit obtained by The Post, Jones claims that Combs constantly “bragged about” paying three women a “monthly stipend” for their sex work.

Jones later named Yung Miami, Jade Ramey and Daphne Joy as the three alleged workers.

Joy has since denied any involvement.

Jones also claimed in the lawsuit that the music executive allegedly sexually assaulted him when the pair collaborated on his latest album between September 2022 and November 2023.

Combs’ lawyer, Shawn Holley, told Page Six that the former employee “is nothing more than a liar who filed a $30 million lawsuit.”

Holley added that “his reckless name-dropping about events that are pure fiction and simply did not happen is nothing more than a transparent attempt to garner headlines.”

“We have overwhelming, indisputable proof that his claims are complete lies. We will address these outlandish allegations in court and take all appropriate action against those who make them,” he continued.

Last month, Combs was the subject of two high-profile raids conducted by Homeland Security in connection with a sex trafficking investigation. The raids involved federal agents confiscating many of the music star’s phones and computers.

“We believe that there is a disturbing history of sex trafficking,” a Department of Homeland Security officer told The Post, without elaborating on the specific allegations at the time.

“We are responding to concrete, detailed, explicit allegations. This is not random. We didn’t choose his name out of a hat. We had allegations that we’re following up on.”

Diddy’s attorney, Aaron Dyer, later called the raids a “witch hunt,” slamming “the excessive show of force and hostility exhibited by authorities or the way his children and employees were treated.”
