Kesha opened up to Teen Vogue about her struggles with disordered eating and her time in rehab. As usual, Kesha is hella lovable.

"Let's just get the elephant out of the room. My eating disorder is something I've been struggling with for a while. People will make up stories, but I went to rehab for an eating disorder—nothing more and nothing less," she explained. "I decided to face my problem head-on."

The 27-year-old star added, "My whole message is to love who you are and accept all your beautiful imperfections. When I felt I was slipping into unloving territory with myself, I knew I had to listen to my own advice and correct it…I felt I needed to get help, not only for myself but also for my fans. My worst fear in life is to be fake."

Kesha also revealed that being in the entertainment industry, where she's constantly photographed and scrutinized, had only intensified her insecurities and body image issues.

"It really messed with my head, and I realized I couldn't do it by myself. The decision to take control of it is the scariest thing I've ever done, and this is coming from someone who dives with sharks and jumps out of airplanes for fun."

<3 U GIRL. [E!]

Luke Grimes left True Blood because he didn't want to make out with Lafayette, says a source.

According to the source, Grimes objected to the first few scripts he received, once it became clear that his character would become romantically involved with Lafayette. He countered that he would be willing to play the role if Lafayette were attracted to him, but not if the attraction was mutual. He also did not want to do any same-sex kissing or sex scenes. The writers were unwilling to change the scripts on his behalf.

The late Jimmy Savile—British TV host, DJ, and child rapist—used his connections at a mortuary to have sex with corpses, according to a new investigation.

The former nurse said: "He [Savile] was saying that they used to put the bodies together, male and female, and he also said that they took photographs and also that he got involved in some of the photographs … I was a little bit upset because I had no concept, in those days, of necrophilia. Several of the Broadmoor patients would have been diagnosed with that, but I didn't fully understand what it meant, and partway through I just wandered off.

"[Savile] talked about gamaroosh ... It means oral sex ... that he [Savile], he would go down on them and gamaroosh and muck about."

Separately, the independent investigation was told that Savile had removed glass eyes from the bodies and used them as jewellery.

One witness said: "I looked at his hands and he had these gross, big silver rings with bulbous things and I sort of went, 'Yes, mm,' always be polite to your superstar, 'Yes, Jim.' And he said: 'D'you know what they are? They are glass eyes from dead bodies in Leeds mortuary where I work and I love working there, and I wheel the dead bodies around at night and I love that.'"

Savile was said to have been best friends with the chief mortician of Leeds general infirmary, who is now dead, and had regular unsupervised access to the mortuary from the late 70s until the mid-90s.
