Over the weekend, Ke$ha announced she’s checked into rehab for an eating disorder which apparently is the result of her producer Dr. Luke saying she looks like a “fucking refrigerator.” So here’s that while I cross out, “Girl, I want to put cold cuts in you like a Kenmore,” from my list of pickup lines which I could’ve sworn was going to be the one. It rolls right off the tongue. TMZ reports:
Sources directly connected to Ke$ha tell us … it all started when the singer’s “Get Sleazy” tour ended in 2011. She says Luke — who signed Ke$ha to a deal at age 18 — started ragging on her over the extra lbs she had gained in her downtime.
Ke$ha says Luke — a huge producer who has worked with Miley Cyrus and Rihanna — began calling Ke$ha fat and urged her management team to do something about it.
Our sources say Ke$ha complained … during a music video shoot in 2012 Luke told her she “looks like a fucking refrigerator” … and the singer was profoundly affected by it.
Of course, the awkward part about this situation is that Ke$ha actually was looking more attractive than usual which I probably shouldn’t say out loud, but we’re all looking at the same pictures. Am I supposed to insult her? Seriously, what’s the protocol here? Do I hit her on the nose with a newspaper? Spray her with water? Let me into your strange woman world! (I’m dying alone, aren’t I? Fantastic.)
