Last Friday, Ke$ha emerged from Timberline Knolls, the Chicago-area rehab center where she admitted herself in early January for an eating disorder. The two-month stint was originally slated to last 30 days, but in February she decided to extend her stay, canceling spring tour dates in order to "follow her doctor's advice and get her health back on track." Newly revitalized and back in the world, her first act last week, the press reported, was to change her Twitter handle - from the self-deprecating @keshasuxx to the more conservative @KeshaRose - and to remove the infamous dollar sign from her name. Her publicity team confirmed shortly thereafter that, going forward, their client will be known as just "Kesha." Our Lady of Lewd, now refocused on staying healthy and "blessed," has begun shedding some very specific appendages of her Animal self.
While fans might've been blindsided by the news about her health, Kesha's rejection of her wilder handles, at least, ought to be less surprising.
