Kesha's
ready to talk about her two-month stint in rehab.

The "Timber" singer cover the newest issue of Teen Vogue, where she opens up about her eating disorder and seeking treatment at the Timberline Knolls facility.

"Let's just get the elephant out of the room. My eating disorder is something I've been struggling with for a while. People will make up stories, but I went to rehab for an eating disorder—nothing more and nothing less," she tells the mag. "I decided to face my problem head-on."

The 27-year-old finally opted to take some of her own advice, too.

"My whole message is to love who you are and accept all your beautiful imperfections. When I felt I was slipping into unloving territory with myself, I knew I had to listen to my own advice and correct it…I felt I needed to get help, not only for myself but also for my fans. My worst fear in life is to be fake," she added.

But being in the spotlight definitely took it's toll on the "Crazy Ones" singer -- and being scrutinized all the time made her insecurities that much greater.

"It really messed with my head, and I realized I couldn't do it by myself," she says, referring to getting treatment. "The decision to take control of it is the scariest thing I've ever done, and this is coming from someone who dives with sharks and jumps out of airplanes for fun."

But rehab not only helped the blonde beauty get her head on straight, it also helped her write some new music. Kesha wrote 14 songs during her time at the rehab facility.

"The whole process has made me so much stronger and ready to take my life by the horns and make a record that I'm going to be proud of and not care what anybody else thinks!," she reveals.

We're happy to hear that the pop star is back on track and feeling much better these days -- what do you think about the singer's candid confessions?
