It was only a few years ago that we knew Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi as the hard-partying, bronzed reality star from the Jersey Shore. But underneath the wild child surface was a young woman struggling with her own positive self-image and a life-threatening eating disorder.

So in the days after learning Ke$ha entered rehab for her own battle with bulimia, Nicole wants to share a few words of wisdom and support for the 26-year-old singer.

“I want to hug Ke$ha,” Nicole told Celebuzz, “because I've had issues in the past with this and I applaud her for reaching out and getting help for herself.”

In an exclusive interview with CB!, Ke$ha's mother Pebe Sebert opened up about her famous daughter's longtime battle with constant dieting and how she's doing since entering a 30-day treatment program Jan. 3: “This is going to be really hard for her," said Pebe. "It’s been a part of her life for so long.”

"I'm a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I've found it hard to practice," Ke$ha (real name is Kesha Sebert) said in a statement of her decision to seek help. "I'll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder... to learn to love myself again, exactly as I am."

For the 26-year-old TV star-turned-author and entrepreneur, Nicole decided to go public four years ago about her struggle with anorexia as a teenager. She confessed to OK! in 2010 it got so bad that her diet merely consisted of a cracker a day. Now a mom to nearly 1-year-old Lorenzo, she's been an staunch advocate for staying healthy.

And Nicole wants the “Timber” songstress to know she is behind her 100 percent.

“I am a HUGE fan of Ke$ha’s quirkiness and it makes me sad to know she suffers and doesn't have confidence in herself,” she added. “I wish Ke$ha all the best in her recovery and I truly hope she realizes what a BEAUTIFUL soul she really is. Love you Kesh!”

    what an odd pic of snooks, it looks like her head is on backwards. no definition of back going in at waist then back out at butt. she's just straight up and down with her strange arm shape. head spinner.
