It looks like Ke$ha may be turning over a new leaf. The "Tik Tok" singer who's known for her crazy antics (including making jewelry out of her fans' molars and drinking her own urine), returned to L.A. on Thursday from rehab for an eating disorder. Also, the 27-year-old dropped her signature dollar sign from her name. So, call her "Kesha" now, guys. (It may be pronounced the same though.)

If you used to look forward to her Twitter account handle, @ke$hasux, that also got nixed as part of her makeover; it's now a simple @kesharose (which, we admit, sounds much more conservative in case she were looking for like a professional office job or something).

The pop singer had checked into a two-month eating disorder program at Timberline Knolls in Chicago and returned smiling at LAX wearing a "Ima Survivor" sweatshirt, according to E! Online.

Including a rainbow emoji in her message, Kesha tweeted out:
