Ke$ha has recently openly admitted that she has entered a rehab facility for help with an eating disorder. Apparently, that isn’t the only thing she is getting help for. The singer’s team has also become worried with her drinking problem and she will be seeking help for that, too. This all comes as no surprise to the people close to her seeing as the pop star has based her career on drinking and partying and that type of lifestyle. I mean, look at her first big hit Tik Tok, she sings about brushing her teeth with a bottle of jack. “Jack Daniels is an anti-bacterial and its way better than morning breath. Let me put it this way, if you wake up naked in a bathtub and you have the choice between rinsing out with Jack Daniels or trying to make out with some dude with morning breath, I would recommend picking up the Jack,” she told Vanity Fair in 2011.
In the most recent months, those closest to her have become increasingly concerned with her drinking. Ke$ha has never been one to hide the fact that she loves to drink. Since she has decided to take action and get help with her eating disorder, she is planning on getting completely healthy and that includes her alcohol problems, too. Her main issue and reason for entering Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center (near Chicago) was to work on her eating disorder issues. It has been said that she has her demons (including alcohol) but that her eating disorder is the chief one.
She has entered the treatment facility with plans to learn to love herself again and has stated she will be unavailable for the next 30 days. Her mother has said that her eating issues came long before her fame and started around the time when she was 18 and living in Los Angeles. It was made very public that her eating disorder took off when her producer, Lukasz Sebastian “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, said she needed to get in shape and it has been said recently that he said she looked like a refrigerator. He suggested she get a trainer and she was dieting and became Bulimic and was constantly throwing up. Apparently, the refrigerator comment just kicked her eating disorder into high gear.
Her mother has said that she may be in treatment for even longer than 30 days. In my opinion, going to treatment for longer than 30 days is always a great idea. If you truly want to make changes in your life and need help, staying in rehab as long as you need to would certainly helping your chances of recovering. Hopefully when Ke$ha leaves treatment she can speak out about eating disorders and addiction and help other people struggling with the same issues. I’m honestly shocked by how many celebrities have opened up recently about their struggles with addiction and eating disorders and openly admitted needing or getting help. Sharing that part of their lives will help them greatly and maybe even help other people, too.If you or a loved one are struggling with substance abuse, an eating disorder or addiction, please call toll free 1-800-951-6135.
