Kesha Opens Up About Rehab Stint: 'I Was Hateful to Myself & Hurting My Body' - Read Her Touching Essay Here!

Kesha is opening up about her two-month stint in rehab and the pressures she faces as a female pop star in the music industry in a poignant essay written for Elle UK magazine’s July 2014 issue.

Here’s some excerpts from the 27-year-old entertainer’s essay:

“The music industry has set unrealistic expectations for what a body is supposed to look like, and I started becoming overly critical of my own body because of that. I felt like people were always lurking, trying to take pictures of me with the intention of putting them up online or printing them in magazines and making me look terrible.”

“I felt like a liar, telling people to love themselves as they are, while I was being hateful to myself and really hurting my body. I wanted to control things that weren’t in my power, but I was controlling the wrong things. I convinced myself that being sick, being skinny was part of my job. It felt safer somehow.”
