Ke$ha Returns From Rehab With New Hair And Inspiring Positivity

Banana Republic, L'Wren Scott And Krista Smith Celebrate The Launch Of The Banana Republic L'Wren Scott Collection

Ke$ha has completed her eating disorder treatment and has tweeted that she’s back in action, with a new hair color to boot. While I’m never going to be a big fan of Ke$ha’s music and occasionally problematic word choices, her positivity, gratitude for her supportive fans, and strength despite awful, backwards media coverage are downright inspiring.

In Ke$ha’s first tweet since January, she posted a picture of a girl looking out a plane window. I didn’t recognize the red head in the picture at first until People pointed out the wrist tattoo, so it looks like Ke$ha has awesome red hair, now.

Of course, much more important than her new hair color is Ke$ha’s general state of mind, which seems wonderfully positive.

I have a pretty big soft spot for celebrities who talk about eating disorders publicly and bring awareness to treatment options. It’s hard for any one of us to slow down and take care of ourselves, but there’s an added level for celebrities, who not only have exceptionally busy lives but also public commitments and the fear of letting an entire fan base down. I’m personally thrilled that Ke$ha took the time to heal and focus on her health, because eating disorders are serious business and need to be treated as you would any other serious illness. Recovery’s a long–sometimes life-long–and difficult process, and here’s to hoping that Ke$ha continues to take care of herself and make sure she gets the help and support she needs.

    You know, Ke$ha has typically been one of the only celebrities I find genuinely weird, and I mean that in the most positive way possible. She doesn’t seem like she’s ~*random!!!*~ in that she sometimes says odd shit to her friends, then giggles. She wears people’s freaking teeth. And whether or not that’s something I’m into, I still think she seems really genuine, overall.

    Uhh… that’s not red hair; it’s blonde with purple streaks. It does look like she cut it into a bob, though.

    She also changed her Twitter name from keshasuxx to KeshaRose, so there’s that, too. (I love Ke$ha to the point of ridiculousness, though, so take anything I say about her with a grain of salt)

    She’s no longer Ke$ha. She removed the $ and is now Kesha. Which is fine with me. I first got into her music when I heard her heartbreaking ballad While You Were Sleeping. I’ve always loved sweet and emotional Kesha and only liked crazy Ke$ha.
