Kesha

I Don't Need $ Anymore

Kesha is money ... well actually not anymore, because she's dropped the $ from her name.

Sources connected to the singer tell TMZ ... she wants a fresh start after her 60 days in rehab for an eating disorder, and the moniker she uses in her name reminds her of her "old self."

So from now on, it's simply Kesha.

We're told she's spending a lot of time with a therapist who will continue what she calls a work in progress.

Kesha is also following the advice she got in rehab -- get rid of the negative people in her life who contributed to the problems in her life that led to the eating disorder.

Everyone's a work in progress, so congrats Kesha for being self-aware.

You don't need to drop your stage name for a new start, just start evaluating who is really your friend and drop the user and abusers...

You people saying bad things about Kesha have low blood sugar and should stay away from the keyboard until it passes. A$$HATS and yes I used the $ to describe you.

I get it. But I always liked the story behind why/when she put the $ in her name. Do what you gotta do. Walk the walk - don't just talk the talk.

What will help change her image even more is if she starts taking baths and wearing clean clothes.

I guess coming out of rehab is an EVENT. Never a good thing. She needs to stay thin, cuz she's ugly with marginal talent. She should be thanking her lucky stars she got this far.

She was having Brunch at the Publican in Chicago before she was "out" of rehab.. just an FYI... (picture to prove it) Some guy said she "couldn't do photos cause she's supposed to be in rehab" when I asked for one together..

Best wishes to her. It takes a lot of strength to reach out for help, even when you aren't in the harsh glare of the spotlight.
