Having recently completed treatment for an eating disorder, Kesha has taken steps to safeguard her new positive and healthy outlook. She recently moved to Los Angeles to be close to the strong support system she has there, and has cancelled tour dates, postponing her upcoming Warrior world tour so she can find strength in life outside rehab before focusing on her career again. She has said she wants to eliminate negativity, partly by ditching her self-deprecating Twitter handle @keshasuxx, and dropping the $ from her name.
The 27–year–old singer/ songwriter said via twitter: “Happy to be back! Feeling healthy & working on tons of new music, I can’t thank my fans enough for all the love & support u have given me.”
Having struggled with bulimia and anorexia, the Nashville-raised Kesha Rose Sebert has been reaching out to her fans, friends and family to thank them for their support. She spent two months in treatment, agreeing to stay an additional month taking doctor’s suggestion, and has willingly put everything on hold. When greeted by paparazzi at the Los Angeles airport, the results showed in a healthy and happy look for the star.
At the center of an image based industry Kesha has been subject to the pressure to maintain ever-more-unhealthy levels of thinness, which has prompted many stars to seek help with eating disorders. Unhealthy body sizes depicted on checkout-line tabloids, television shows and internet sites where the focus is on body, displayed often with reckless abandon and critiqued beyond the point of ridicule. Kesha, who was destined for Barnard College with a 1500/1600 on her SAT, before venturing independently to develop her music, has demonstrated she has the insight to step out of the cookie cutter image and promote a better way of living.
