Grammy-nominated singer Kesha is opening up about her struggles with her personal and professional life in an upcoming interview with CBS Sunday Morning.


The hit-maker, who checked into rehab in 2014 for an eating disorder, told the outlet, "I knew I had to because I hated myself so much.” 


Her third studio album Rainbow was released in August 2017, and when it debuted at #1 she felt like she was in control again. The singer said, "I feel like I took my life back."

"I'm not a size. I'm not a number," she told the publication. "I am a strong, badass, motherf--king woman, and quite frankly, I like my junk.

This isnt the first time Kesha has talked about her body issues. The 31-year-old recently told Rolling Stone that at one point she was so anxious about hiding her meal at a dinner party that she couldnt take it anymore. 


"And then finally I was like, 'F--k. This. Sh-t. F--k this sh-t. I'm hungry!' And I am so anxious that I feel like I'm going to explode from all the secrets," she explained. "All the secret times I'm pretending to eat or other times I'm purging, and I'm trying to not let anybody know. And I'm just f--king sick of this shit. And I remember just shaking because I was so fed up, so anxious, and I was just mad that I had let myself get to that point."
