Demi Lovato has applauded fellow pop star Ke$Ha for checking into rehab to deal with her eating disorder issues, insisting she is doing "a really great thing".
The Tik Tok hitmaker is currently enrolled in a month-long treatment program at the Timberline Knolls clinic in Illinois - the same health center Lovato called home for three months in 2010 and 2011 as she tackled her own drug addiction and food issues, and she is confident the time away from the spotlight will do Ke$ha the world of good.
Lovato says, "I wish her the absolute best and I think she is doing a really great thing for herself.
"It's really great when you take time out of a schedule that everybody wants you (sic). There are so many things, you work so hard and then you kind of forget about yourself, and you don't really get to treat the things that everyone has, like stress. You just kind of throw yourself into work.
"When I took that experience (checking into rehab), I needed it to live. It taught me a lot and it helped me a ton. I wish her the absolute best. She's a really sweet girl and she's going to be fine."
