Kesha has kept a low-profile over the past six months, but just recently she announced through Twitter that she had partnered with the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) to reduce the stigma of treating eating disorders. She said that eating disorders were a life threatening illness that could affect anyone and that "It doesn't matter your age, your sex, your ethnicity. Eating disorders don't discriminate."

On her birthday last Wednesday, she asked others who are suffering from eating disorders to seek help. About 20 million women and 10 million men in the US will experience an eating disorder at some point in their lives. She herself went through an eating disorder some part of her life, she said she was afraid to confront it and was treated for both anorexia and bulimia.  

The hit maker starred in a new 35-second public service announcement that aims to educate and provided information to people about available helplines for those who are going through similar situation.

The opening screen included a heartfelt message from the celebrity who donned a blue hair look. Kesha opened up about her battle with bulimia nervosa in her social media post. She said that she felt really unhappy inside, but outside, people were like "Wow, you look great."

According to Normangee Star, in her NEDA press release, Kesha urged people struggling with an eating disorder to seek help. "If you feel like you need help or if you know anyone that may need help, please do not hesitate. Recovery is possible," she said.

Meanwhile, Kesha had a three-year-long suit against her record producer Dr. Luke who was alleged to have sexually assaulted her and inflicted emotional and physical abuse. All charges were denied by Dr. Luke and have counter sued the artist for defamation according to Daily Mail.
