Kesha Admits She Considered Suicide After Leaked Photo, Shares New Warrior Tour Dates
Kesha made some headlines late last year when what appeared to be a photo of her performing fellatio ended up on Twitter. At first, we chalked it up to another outrageous Kesha moment, which the 'Crazy Kids' singer is prone to having. But she has revealed that she was so depressed when that photo came out that she contemplated suicide.
The photo was quickly yanked from her Twitter feed, and she says she has no memory of the event. She also does not believe it's her in the incriminating pic, based on the blue eye shadow the person is wearing.
“I don't even know if that's me in the photo," she admitted. "I don’t remember that situation… Not with blue eye shadow on! C’mon, I'm not a stripper!"
She has a point there…
Kesha said she never considered suicide prior to the photo, and came to her senses, stating that she'd never go through with something like that, so her fans needn't worry.
The singer was, however, stuck with a case of insomnia, as a result of the humiliation. "I went three days without sleeping, and I was hallucinating from lack of sleep, so my doctor put me on anti-anxiety medication," she revealed.
The photo leak has her on guard now! Kesha calls her manager daily and asks, "Is there anything negative about me in the news today?"
Well, there is something positive about Kesha in today's news. She has confirmed a Warrior headline tour after she wraps her summer trek with Pitbull. She will keep the party going!
"Get your face paint, glitter and blue lipstick ready," the singer said. "I'm so excited to get back out on the road this summer and see all of my animals!!! I've been preparing for months and I promise to make this the best night of our lives!!!"
Mike Posner and Semi-Precious Weapons are set to open. Check out a list of dates below.
