Kesha Talks Eating Disorder & Learning to Take Her Own Advice In 'Teen Vogue'
Lately, Kesha's been making headlines for more than her chart-topping singles. The "Timber" singer entered rehab for an eating disorder in early January and emerged two months later flaunting rainbow hair and an "I'm a Survivor" sweatshirt. She seems to be doing much better, and now Kesha has opened up to Teen Vogue about her experience at Timberline Knolls treatment facility. She told the magazine:
The 27-year-old singer went on to talk about how important it was for her to listen to her own advice. "My whole message is to love who you are and accept all your beautiful imperfections," she said. "When I felt I was slipping into unloving territory with myself, I knew I had to listen to my own advice and correct it…I felt I needed to get help, not only for myself but also for my fans. My worst fear in life is to be fake."
Understandably, the singer notes that being constantly in the spotlight makes it easier to be pulled apart by hateful comments. Having paparazzi stalk you and follow your every move can hardly be conducive to a positive body image. She explained:
Cheers to you, Kesha!
