Kesha on Entering Rehab: 'I Decided to Face My Problem Head-On'

Kesha looks raw and real on the cover of Teen Vogue magazine’s August 2014 issue.

Here’s what the 27-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On the decision to enter rehab: “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.”

On not wanting to be called pretty: “I remember thinking, I don’t want to be pretty Don’t call me pretty. It was almost offensive. I would put on more eyeliner or draw things down my face.”

On changing her Twitter handle from Ke$hasux to Kesharose: “[It was a] defining moment [that developed] about six months ago. I decided that maybe I do want to try to be pretty. I want to just try.”

    Her problem is that she has such low self-esteem. Hopefully with rehab and counseling though, she’s building it up and is doing better.
