Ke$ha declared in a New Year's Day tweet that "truth and freedom" will be the benchmarks of 2014 for the 26-year-old pop star.

"Cheers to this year being the best year ever," she tweeted on New Year's Day. " 2014 gon be the year of truth and freedom."

A few days later, she checked into Timberline Knolls near Chicago ,a 30-day treatment facility for an eating disorder.

TMZ reports that Ke$ha is telling friends her eating disorder was caused remarks by her music producer, Dr. Luke, made about her weight.

Apparently, her eating disorder started when the singer's "Get Sleazy" tour ended in 2011. She said that Luke, who is also producer to Miley Cyrus and Rihanna, started commenting on the extra pounds she had gained in her downtime.

According to TMZ, Ke$ha said that during a music video shoot in 2012 Luke told her she "looks like a f***ing refrigerator", and those remarks profoundly affected her body image.
