Apart from her explanation that she needs to "learn to love myself again," when Ke$ha checked into rehab earlier this month, not much was known about what started her battle with an eating disorder. But no matter what caused it, the star reassured her fans on Tuesday (January 21) that she's getting better.
According to a message posted on the pop star's Twitter account, Ke$ha's stay at Chicago's Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center doesn't allow her access to social media, but that doesn't mean she couldn't pass along an update through a friend. "THANK YOU. SOOO MUCH. I'm overwhelmed to tears by all of the love, letters, and support!! I'll be back soon and better than ever," the tweets read.

Even though the 26-year-old singer is focused on her recovery, it seems like her lively spirit is still intact. "she can't believe Timber is still number one!," the message read, referring to the singer's collaboration with Pitbull. "Fck YEAH animals! PARTY ON!!!!"

In a statement to MTV News earlier this month, the singer wrote, "I'm a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I've found it hard to practice. 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."
In an interview with People shortly after Ke$ha was admitted to Timberline Knolls, her mother, Pebe Sebert, suggested that it was her team's bullying that ultimately led to her daughter's battle with bulimia. "[Producer] Dr. Luke told a friend of ours he thought she looked like a refrigerator on her latest video, and could she please try to control her weight," Sebert said. Dr. Luke later said Sebert's claimswere "completely false."
Shortly after the public battle, Sebert checked into the same rehab center for post-traumatic stress disorder.
