Kesha is still learning to accept her ''beautiful imperfections.''

The 'Timber' hitmaker - who sought treatment in a rehab facility near Chicago for an eating disorder earlier this year - says admitting she had a problem is ''the scariest thing'' she's ever done, but she no longer cares what anyone else thinks about her.

The 27-year-old star told Teen Vogue magazine: ''My eating disorder is something I've been struggling with for a while. People will make up stories, but I went to rehab for an eating disorder--nothing more and nothing less. I decided to face my problem head-on.''

She added: ''My whole message is to love who you are and accept all your beautiful imperfections. When I felt I was slipping into unloving territory with myself, I knew I had to listen to my own advice and correct it...I felt I needed to get help, not only for myself but also for my fans. My worst fear in life is to be fake.''

The 'Tik Tok' hitmaker also believes being in the spotlight intensified her insecurities and made her feel more self-conscious about her weight.

She said: ''It really messed with my head, and I realised I couldn't do it by myself. The decision to take control of it is the scariest thing I've ever done, and this is coming from someone who dives with sharks and jumps out of airplanes for fun.''

The singer, who spent two months in rehab, wrote 14 songs while she was there and feels back in control again.

She said: ''The whole process has made me so much stronger and ready to take my life by the horns and make a record that I'm going to be proud of and not care what anybody else thinks!''
