Ke$ha has confirmed that she checked in to rehab for an eating disorder.
The 26-year-old singer said in a statement on Friday:
"I'm a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I've found it hard to practice. I'll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder ... to learn to love myself again, exactly as I am."
Us Weekly reports that Ke$ha is at the Timberline Knolls rehab center in Illinois, which is the same place Demi Lovato completed treatment back in 2010.
Though Ke$ha has been honest about her body image issues over the years, this does come as a bit of a shock. On New Year's Day, the seemingly happy and healthy singer debuted the racy music video for her song "Dirty Love" music video, and shortly after that she tweeted, "Cheers to this year being the best year ever. 2014 gon be the year of truth and freedom."
Here's to hoping she gets all the help she needs ... get better K Money!
Ke$ha just released her music video for "Dirty Love," and from the stripper moves to the sparkly undies, we're not at all surprised with what's going on in the clip above. But on the plus side, we totally love the song!
"SUPRIZZLE Animals! get your glitter! NEW VIDEO HERE," she wrote of her directorial debut. But as far as we're concerned, it's the editor who gets the gold star for blurring out her nipples at the end of the video when she wears a black mesh tank with daisy dukes. But still, she's proud of it, as she added, "and truth is. this is my fave song off my record check the the video."
Unruly singer Ke$ha rocked her new cotton candy colored hair for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night. Our photogs caught the wild child and her funky hairstyle as she was exiting the Hollywood studios. We can only assume she left her her throngs of fans and flew off on a unicorn or some other magical winged creature.
When she sat down with the funny man, the "Die Young" singer unleashed a bevy of her usual nonsensical statements, including believes a ghost lives in her lady parts. Oh what will that singer with her devil-may-care attitude say next?! Nobody knows -- but we bet it will make people feel uncomfortable!
"I know it sounds ridiculous but in all honesty I believe in all this crazy sh*t. I was told I had dead people in me …. [My hypnotherapist] said she had to exercise my body and then I got a ghost meter to read it and then it just beeped at my v*gina."
Uh oh -- that doesn't sound good. But maybe it's Beetlejuice haunting her nether regions -- we bet those two would have a totally rockin' party together!
Despite all the wild chatter, we gotta say -- Ke$ha has never looked better! Her workout regime is clearly paying off and we kind of think the crazy colored hair actually works for her!
Ke$ha made an appearance at Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday, and we've never seen the "Die Young" singer look so sexy! Donning a floral print shorts suit and sky high nude heels, the pop star showed off her amazing legs!
Clearly the singer is good friends with the talk show host because she even tweeted a pic of the two of them!
"Can't WAIT to abuse @jimmykimmel again on @jimmyKimmelLive tonight!!!" she captioned the below snapshot.
Ke$ha is hoping to clear the air regarding the lyrics to her hit song "Die Young."
The 25-year-old singer received criticism following the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
The songstress released the following statement:
“After such a tragic event I was feeling a lot of emotion and sadness when I said I was forced to sing some of the lyrics to Die Young.
Forced is not the right word. I did have some concerns about the phrase “die young” in the chorus when we were writing the lyrics especially because so many of my fans are young and that’s one reason why I wrote so many versions of this song. But the point of the song is the importance of living every day to the fullest and staying young at heart, and these are things I truly believe."
This statement is very different from the singer's Tweet earlier this week. Ke$ha had written, "i understand. I had my very own issue with ‘die young’ for this reason. I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO.”
Ke$ha posed for photos on the red carpet at the 2012 American Music Awards at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday night, and she's not our pick for best dressed, but she does win the most improved award!
The 25-year-old singer will perform her latest single “Die Young”, and after tonight's show, she'll be busy promoting her new album, Warrior, which hits stores on December 4.
Of her new music, K Money recently told Vibe magazine, “The first record was a celebration of partying and being young, but this record’s a better look at my personality. Whatever, I drink like a champion. But I can also do other stuff. I have a sense of humor about my lyrics. I’m not a train wreck, I’m just having fun.”
