Ke$ha: Under the Microscope

On January 3rd, 2014,Kesha Rose Serbert admitted herself at Timberline Knolls, a rehab center. Perez Hilton publicly humiliated Kesha from his blog.

How do you feel about the public humiliation of a person who is publicly trying to better themselves?

“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.” Are the words of Kesha Rose Serbert, or just Ke$ha. On January 3rd, 2014, Kesha had put herself in a rehabilitation center for an eating disorder. Kesha speaks out for the outcasts, being one herself, who is a great role model. She was bullied for being smart and having a suburban style in a mix of conservative classmates. While her songs talk about living loosely in the fast lane, she promotes individuality and kindness. She has good means behind her songs and albums. “…I have zero tolerance for people making fun of others.” She had once stated in a Seventeen Magazine Interview. She is openly bisexual and is a supporter of the LGBT community.

She doesn’t put up with people’s judgmental behavior and hatred, but sometimes words really do hurt and can break the barrier you put up around you. Perez Hilton is an openly gay blogger who also supports the LGBT community. He tried to ruin Kesha’s life, like he has with many other artists, when he shared private pictures on his blog. This wasn’t his first or last offence with breaking an artist’s spirit. When Kesha released that she put herself in rehab he made inexcusable jokes on his blog. Perez is a despicable human being with no sensor. Kesha has been a victim of him for too long. She tries to do something good for herself and instead gets criticized by an arrogant, pretentious, awful person that too many people listen to. Many try to stand up to him and others have filed lawsuits, but for some reason he is always the center of attention.

Kesha’s management team has been said to be another one of the reasons why she admitted herself to rehab. “One time on a conference call, Sonenberg [Ke$ha’s former manager] was screaming, ‘You need to lose weight! I don’t care what you do … take drugs, not eat, stick your finger down your throat!’ Ke$ha was just weeping. She drove around afterward thinking about killing herself.” Pebe Sebert, Kesha’s mom, said. Sticks and stones is a saying of the past. If you are told that you aren’t good enough often enough, you start to believe it. Sometimes the people closest to you are the ones pulling the trigger on your mental health.

Sources close to Kesha also said that they didn’t know how Kesha was alive. Her sodium levels and blood pressure were so low at one point that it wasn’t a wonder if she would have keeled over on stage. To think that people who were supposed to be the support system of a celebrity were the ones who were shutting her down more than the media was. Sometimes you have to be your own hero and take the initiative for a better life. Which was what Kesha was and had done. If anything, she shouldn’t be humiliated for doing something good for herself.
