Bulimia plagues Pop Star

January 14, 2014 2 min read

When you think of pop superstar singer Kesha, many words come to mind; talented, envelope pusher, garbage bag wearer but until last week you would never have thought bulimic. Last week Kesha checked herself into rehab, later we found out it was due to an eating disorder…bulimia.

Kesha came on to the scene in 2009 with her smash hit Tik Tok, which quickly turned into the Millennials generation anthem. Singing about brushing her teeth with a bottle of Jack, Jack Daniels that is and always looking a little disheveled Kesha became extremely popular.

Kesha was looking very thin in her latest music video “Timber” featuring Pitbull. You might be asking yourself why a beautiful, young, famous woman would turn to bulimia.

Kesha isn’t the only one suffering from bulimia; 10 million Americans suffer from an eating disorder of some kind. Among women between the ages of 15 and 24 years old, 1 out of 50 is bulimic. I don’t know about you but I find this number shockingly high.  

Kesha’s mother, Pebe Sebert, is reportedly blaming Kesha’s “team” for pressuring her to be thin, especially her producer Dr. Luke. Sebert told People magazine Dr. Luke had been demanding Kesha to lose weight.

Many people turn to an eating disorder when they lack control of other aspects of their life, it gives them one thing they are able to control. The Boston College Eating Awareness Team says recovering from bulimia is possible and usually requires two things:

1. A determination to create a behavioral change.  

2. A commitment to do some physiological work to understand where the problem stemmed from.

Kesha stated about  going into rehab “I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself but I’ve found it hard to practice, I’ll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder…to learn to love myself again. Exactly as I am.”

We hope that Kesha learns to love herself again and has a full recovery.
