Kesha, once again, is getting candid about her experiences with self-esteem and body issues. During a preview for an upcoming interview with CBS Morning, Kesha dishes on some of her most vulnerable moments including going to a rehabilitation clinic in 2014 for an eating disorder.
When speaking with reporters, Kesha said, “I hated myself so much,” and that she chose to seek out help. Even though this period in her life was tremendously difficult and dark, there was a silver lining to all of it: her artform.
In addition to her struggle with Dr. Luke, the disgraced producer who used to work for Sony Entertainment, Kesha said her disorders provided ammunition, or rather the inspiration for her 2017 album, Rainbow.
In reference to her album which debuted at #1, Kesha explained, “I feel like I took my life back.” The moment when she discovered the extent of her problem was during dinner with acquaintances.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Kesha said she once pretended to eat food while with friends, and suddenly realized that “enough was enough.”
The singer became super exasperated during the interview and said her condition was so frustrating and self-defeating; she was always hungry and depressed.
Kesha isn’t merely a number or a size, she is a “strong, bada*s” woman and wasn’t down to fight anymore with herself. The singer stated she, once and for all, decided to put her foot down and gain a sense of self-confidence.
As it was noted at the beginning of the article, Kesha had a brutal legal battle with Dr. Luke, whom she claims abused her physically, verbally, and sexually. Some of her other cohorts in the entertainment business derided Dr. Luke as well including Kelly Clarkson and Pink.
