Kesha Talks Eating Disorder in Teen Vogue August 2014
The “Your Love is My Drug” singer kicks things off with the obvious topic that’s on everybody’s mind these days.
"Let's just get the elephant out of the room. My eating disorder is something I've been struggling with for a while. People will make up stories, but I went to rehab for an eating disorder—nothing more and nothing less."
Kesha continued, "Making my last record, Warrior, was a pretty miserable process, and it wore my spirit down. I was fighting like hell to keep my whole irreverent essence and everything raw and visceral that I stand for in it, but in the end I was promoting something that wasn't the animal I wanted it to be. I decided to face my problem head-on."
But now that she’s taken time to tweak her own life, the “TiK ToK” songstress is ready to jump back into the arena. "My whole message is to love who you are and accept all your beautiful imperfections. 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 have a public persona where I need to be fun all the time, and I refuse to be a hypocrite. 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."
