Ke$ha on body image: 'I don't have the perfect figure, but I celebrate what I've got'

Pop beauty Ke$ha has opened up about the importance of self-worth in a new interview and revealed that accepting your body is one of the best things you can do for yourself. 

Speaking to Self magazine, the 'Die Young' songstress explained that body image is a tough and constant battle so she has learned to "celebrate" what she's got instead of criticising her curves:

"I don't have a perfect body, [but it's] important to celebrate what you've got."

"For me, I like showing off my legs because I work really hard on them. So you will rarely find me wearing pants. I stay far away from a scale because it's not about a number, it's about how I feel. I try to eat healthy because it makes me feel good."

The superstar also revealed details of her fitness routine, adding that she likes to mix up the types of training she does in order to keep herself interested and motivated: "My show is very energetic - I dance and sing at the same time and run around. Training for a tour is like training for a marathon. When I'm eating healthy and working out, it helps me stay sane and exude confidence..."

"I bike, I swim and I love yoga. I also love rock climbing, which I've done since I was 16. It's meditative and great for toning your arms and back. I love to run, too."
