Kesha Talks Dropping The Dollar Sign From Her Name And How She’s Feeling Herself: ‘I Look Good Naked’

While taking part in Refinery29‘s Reclaim Your Domain Discussion Panel that took place at the SXSW Festival on Tuesday with Amy Emmerich, Kesha spoke out on who she is today.

The singer addressed evolving as an artist and why she chose to drop the dollar sign from her name: “It happened after I went to rehab for my eating disorder,” she admitted. “I let go of my facade about being a girl who didn’t care… My facade was to be strong, and I realized it was total bullshit.”

“I took out the $ because I realized that was part of the facade. It was a journey and I’m happy. That was me in that part of my life. But then I turned a corner, but I still have a f**king tattoo of it on my hand. I’ll have to figure that out!” she joked.

Kesha also revealed she is much more comfortable in her skin now. She used to let her imperfections bother her, but she’s feeling herself. Especially naked.

“It’s empowering to sit with my imperfections and be real and vulnerable. In truth, there’s real power. I used to nitpick everything and it was f**king exhausting. Now I’m feelin’ myself. I look good naked!” the singer announced.

She says she has grown so much when it comes to dealing with criticism online. “Criticism online used to tear me up. Then I realized you can’t make people you don’t know your higher power. The internet shouldn’t be a place that makes us feel unsafe,” she said.
