NEW JERSEY: Singer Kesha, who checked herself into a rehabilitation centre for an eating disorder, blames paparazzi for her insecurities.
The 27-year-old believes that the constant judging from paparazzi and negative comments about her body from online trolls added to her woes,
“The music industry has set unrealistic expectations for what a body is supposed to look like, and I started becoming overly critical of my own body because of that. I became scared to go in public, or even use the internet. I may have been paranoid, but I also saw and heard enough hateful things to fuel that paranoia,” she said.
The singer got out of rehab in March and feels she is ready to face the world again.
“I knew I was ready to leave when I’d gained enough confidence to get on a plane knowing there would be paparazzi at the airport at the other end. I was right – they were there. But this time, when I saw the pictures, I felt OK. I’m not fully fixed – I am a person in progress, but I want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Even I need to be reminded that we are who we are,” she said.
