The news broke today that the singer
Kesha Ke$ha has entered an Illinois rehab center to undergo treatment for an eating disorder. In an age where celebrities going to rehab for such as drugs and alcohol, have almost become something to be expected in their career, this might not seem like a big deal, but for all the teen and tween girls who worship Kesha (they call themselves “Animals”) I think this could be a very positive thing. Of course, this being the Internet, plenty of people have negative stuff to day. Because people are awful.
According to her spokesperson, Kesha will be “unavailable for the next 30 days while she seeks treatment for an undisclosed eating disorder.” Echoing this statement, Kesha herself had this to say:
“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.”
Below are some of the worst responses to the news that Kesha was seeking treatment. Because apparently, if you’re a celebrity, you don’t have things like feelings or dignity. It makes me sad for my kids, because if a beautiful and talented woman like Kesha can create this type of vitriol for doing something positive with her life, what chance do my daughters have?
Ugh. So frustrating and annoying. I don’t care if she’s a celebrity so you think she’s fair game, or if you don’t like her music and image. This is unacceptable.
