Kesha has vowed to spend less time online because of the damaging effects Internet trolls have had on her health.
In 2014, the singer underwent rehab for two months to treat an eating disorder. She has since often encountered body-shamers online and has occasionally fired back at them publicly. In a personal essay published in Teen Vogue Wednesday, Kesha opens up about cyber-bullying.
"When I think about the kind of bullying I dealt with as a child and teen, it seems almost quaint compared with what goes on today," she said. "The amount of body-shaming and baseless slut-shaming online makes me sick. I know from personal experience how comments can mess up somebody's self-confidence and sense of self-worth. I have felt so unlovable after reading cruel words written by strangers who don't know a thing about me."
