The clock almost struck midnight on Kesha's life earlier this year.
"I almost died in January," she plainly told Self in a new cover story.
The "TiK ToK" singer revealed that she froze her eggs last year, but the procedure had ramifications. In detailing what happened, Kesha explained that she performed a New Year's Eve show in the Bahamas but was too weak to walk after finishing.
During a hospital visit, Kesha was told that her immune system was weakened due to the fertility procedure. Soon after, she was transferred to a Miami hospital, where she remained for nine days.
Although she didn't go into specifics, Kesha called the medical incident "horrifying."
The two-time Grammy nominee further articulated that she decided to freeze her eggs to better fit her schedule, which included releasing an album. She also didn't want to be flippant about bringing a child into the world, nor she does want anyone to tell her when or how to birth a child.
"I just was taking my reproductive health into my own hands," she said. "And I stand by everyone doing that and [honoring] your body."
Having said that, Kesha makes it clear that she's scared to talk about her health.
"Everyone probably has some semblance of feeling like you share what you're going through, and, at the same time, it's almost inviting people to have an opinion about it. I don't have that perfectly mapped out," she added.
While the "Praying" singer admitted to keeping some of the hospitalization details on a need-to-know basis, Kesha is just as protective when it comes to her boyfriend, whom she calls "amazing."
"I didn't really want to mention the relationship, because I think making a family is everyone's choice, and family can mean so many different things to everyone," she said. "My family right now are the people I spend time with, and my actual family, and also my band, my friends, and my cats."
In offering one small peek into her life with her beau, she said, "The only thing I'll say about my boyfriend is: Sometimes, he has to have a face cream intervention and take them away from me."
