Singer Ke$ha enters rehab for eating disorder

Ke$ha is known for producing catchy pop songs (and the occasional over share). Now she’s making headlines for a much different reason.

The 26-year-old checked herself into rehab Friday to battle an eating disorder.

"I'm a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I've found it hard to practice," the "Timber" singer said in a statement provided by her rep Friday. "I'll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder to learn to love myself again exactly as I am."

Recently, the singer starred in a MTV reality show and her song "Timber" with rapper Pitbull is on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart.
