Kesha Opens Up About How Online Bullying Fueled Her Eating Disorder In New Essay

Kesha

In a new essay for Teen Vogue, Kesha pens an inspiring message about overcoming her eating disorder and finding happiness despite being bullied online.

The 30-year-old singer allowed herself to be vulnerable in the emotional piece opening up about being an "outcast" ever since she was young — but it was the cruel opinions of others, combined with anxiety and depression, that led to the TiK ToK artist's eating disorder.

Kesha wrote:

"When I think about the kind of bullying I dealt with as a child and teen, it seems almost quaint compared with what goes on today. The amount of body-shaming and baseless slut-shaming online makes me sick. I know from personal experience how comments can mess up somebody's self-confidence and sense of self-worth. I have felt so unlovable after reading cruel words written by strangers who don't know a thing about me."

The 30-year-old also recalled her own experiences dealing with an eating disorder, saying:

"I had an eating disorder that threatened my life, and I was very afraid to confront it. I got sicker, and the whole world kept telling me how much better I looked. That's why I realized I wanted to be part of the solution."

She continued:

"Eating disorders are a life threatening illness that can affect anyone. It doesn't matter your age, your sex, your ethnicity. Eating disorders don't discriminate."

Kesha has admitted in the past that Dr. Luke was a factor in causing her to develop an eating disorder. She confessed he had called her fat and compared her to a refrigerator.

The artist sought help for her illness by attending rehab in 2014.
