Kesha Opens Up About Her Eating Disorder In 'The Liberation of Kesha'
Kesha is on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone Magazine, with the victorious article titled, "The Liberation of Kesha." In the article, Kesha opens up about her eating disorder and becoming herself again.
At the age of 30, she has been through a hell of a lot. Not only has she recovered from a serious eating disorder, she's also working through an unsettling, unresolved legal battle with producer Dr. Luke.
While speaking she reviled that she is finally feeling "like herself"
"I feel like myself for the first time ever. And I made a record I'm extremely proud of, from the bottom of my guts. I excavated the most gnarly lyrics that were so difficult for me. And people still like it! It's really beautiful, and it's very healing. I feel like I'm being seen for what I actually am, and people are OK with it."
Kesha also recently released her third and most praised album, Rainbow, debuted at number one in August of 2017, which left many surprised (including Kesha), considering the album almost didn't come out. She had to get healthy and learn how to cope with an eating disorder first.
"I really just thought I wasn't supposed to eat food. And then if I ever did, I felt very ashamed, and I would make myself throw up because I'd think, 'Oh, my God, I can't believe I actually did that horrible thing. I'm so ashamed of myself because I don't deserve to eat food."
For us the most crazy part is that people didn;t realise what was happening as many people would complement her on her looks, she said
"I was slowly, slowly starving myself. The worse I got and the sicker I got, the better a lot of people around me were saying that I looked. They would just be like, 'Oh my gosh, keep doing whatever you're doing! You look so beautiful, so stunning."
Soon after, she pulled her car over and called her mom, Pebe Sebert. Her mom flew her to a rehab facility immediately, where a nutritionist taught her how to survive.
