Kesha "never thought" she'd be able to overcome her body confidence issues.
The 'Tik Tok' hitmaker wouldn't have believed 10 years ago that she would ever be at a place where she could say that she loves her body.
She shared: "The final straw was when I was with my mom at a family dinner party and I was so anxious. Driving home, I had to pull over, and I was like, I can't keep this secret anymore. It was scary, but I finally put my foot down and chose life. That was a huge turning point. I'm not a size. I'm not a number. I am a strong, bada**, motherf***ing woman, and quite frankly, I like my junk. Ten years ago, I never thought I'd be able to say that."
And the 31-year-old singer admits fame was a lot different than she thought it would be.
She added to the US edition of Cosmopolitan magazine: "I thought I had to be very tough and really strong and portray that I didn't give a f**k, and that just was not the case. I was pretending like everything was great all the time."
Meanwhile, Kesha previously revealed she has gained strength from her "darkest moments".
She explained: "It's from our darkest moments that we gain the most strength. There were so many days, months even, when I didn't want to get out of bed. I spent all day wanting to go to sleep, and then when I did fall asleep, I had horrible night terrors where I would physically cry and scream through the dark. I was never at peace, night or day. But I dragged myself out of bed and took my emotions to the studio and made art out of them. And I have never been happier with a body of work as I am with this record. I hope this song reaches people who are in the midst of struggles, to let them know that no matter how bad it seems now, you can get through it. If you have love and truth on your side, you will never be defeated. Don't give up on yourself."
