Kesha 'stronger' following rehab

Kesha has opened up about her eating disorder.

The singer had a spell in a rehab facility in Chicago in January in an attempt to "take control" of her eating problems.

She told Teen Vogue that the experience had left her "stronger and ready to take my life by the horns".

Kesha told the mag: "Let's just get the elephant out of the room. My eating disorder is something I've been struggling with for a while.

"People will make up stories, but I went to rehab for an eating disorder, nothing more and nothing less."

The 27-year-old added: "My whole message is to love who you are and accept all your beautiful imperfections. When I felt I was slipping into unloving territory with myself, I knew I had to listen to my own advice and correct it.

"I have a public persona where I need to be fun all the time, and I refuse to be a hypocrite. I felt I needed to get help, not only for myself but also for my fans. My worst fear in life is to be fake."

She told the mag that being famous had taken its toll because she was always being scrutinised.

"It really messed with my head, and I realised I couldn't do it by myself. The decision to take control of it is the scariest thing I've ever done."
