Singer Kesha reveals there was a time when she “almost died” after suffering from self-doubt and a lack of self-confidence.
The “Tik Tok” hitmaker says a lack of self-confidence can send someone into a spiral of negative feelings, while admitting that it is something that nearly happened to her in the past, reported Femalefirst.
“If you feel a certain way about yourself, your body – it can kill you. I almost died. I came closer than I ever knew. By the time I entered rehab, they were surprised I hadn’t had a stroke – because I hadn’t consumed enough.
“I’m not ashamed anymore. It’s emotional because it’s a deep-rooted disease. It can really affect your self-worth,” she says.
Speaking at Refinery 29’s Reclaiming the Internet SXSW talk, she adds, “I try to limit myself in terms of reading comments because there can be a million positive ones, but I always gravitate towards the one negative one. I hold on to that and I internalise it and I know it’s an unhealthy habit. I’ve stopped reading comments.
