Ke$ha’s new looks: hilarious, fabulous or just dumb?

I kind of want to marry Ke$ha when she’s wearing this wig. I mean… it’s rather fabulous and hilarious, isn’t it? She’s not like Lady Gaga, who takes it all so seriously and fears that some kind of Billy Idol mullet wig might set off one of her monsters. And Ke$ha’s not like Rihanna, who thinks that she’s some kind of groundbreaking fashionista (she’s not). Ke$ha knows that being a pop star is inherently absurd… thus, the wig. I’m beginning to love her. And I love the way she posing so seriously too, like this is a genuine look that she’s seen in magazines, and she’s trying to achieve some sort of “Mullet Runway-to-Red Carpet” pose.

Next up from Ke$ha, we have a non-mullet look. Apparently, she got herself some special 3D glasses, and she wore them while she was trying to leave Jimmy Kimmel’s interview. Okay, this look is rather Gaga. Whatever, she’s probably drunk.

UPDATE: Not that it really matters, but there are some excerpts from Ke$ha’s new Complex Magazine cover interview. Here you go:

On whether she’s still with Alex Carapetis: “Not so much. He had a Keith Richards vibe to him, but then he started acting like a woman, and I just can’t handle that.”

On the “P. Diddy” line: “Diddy called [Dr. Luke] up like, ‘I want to work with you.’ Luke was like, “We’ve got a line on Ke$ha’s first single talking about how great it is to feel like you.’”

On her garbage bag dress: “I was trying to look super-hot. I like to poke fun at when people make fun of me, because I don’t take myself that seriously. People say I’m ‘garbage chic,’ so I thought I’d take it to the next level and make a garbage bag super f—ing chic – and I succeeded!”

[From Just Jared]

See? She’s funny and she doesn’t take her junk seriously.

    Where is the war party meeting up? And will there be peyote there too?

    Geez

  2. Roxanne75 says:

    She is hilarious. Is she trying to be serious? And what’s with the droopy/sexy/baked eye look she always gives?

  3. meg says:

    Gr-oss. She looks like my friend’s first try at drag. PS- he’s straight.

  4. Ron says:

    Runner up at Festival of the Tacky.

  5. hellen says:

    Is this her answer to the Gwyneth Paltrow/SJP etc. “I Am African” campaign?

    PS: Not my blog, just an illustration.

  6. 4Real says:

    She is a very unfortunate looking girl so she might as well!! If she didn’t she would just look like another Sam Ronson.

  7. devilgirl says:

    She is looking like Hedwig, from the movie Hedwig and the Angry Inch (great movie by the way).

  8. anti says:

    i actually love it in a kid’s dress-up, JEM rockstar, casual kind of way… could almost be performance art in an anti-fashion sort of way.

    maybe.

  9. hairball says:

    It’s always so sad to me that morons like this get so much attention when people who are working on cures for diseases, helping others, actually making a difference in the world do not.

  10. mln says:

    She(or her stylist) is definitely parodying the Gaga thing it’s pretty funny I love the gold glitter lipstick.

    @devilgirl I love Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
    EDIT: just realized I am responding to all of your posts today weird.(LOL)

  11. Bronson says:

    love her. love love love her, want to marry her.

  12. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I wanna party with her. I am falling in love with her…I want her gold lipstick.

  13. koala says:

    she kind of looks like corey haim circa lost boys in the wig.

  14. juliana says:

    What Muppet did she have to kill to get that purple coat?

  15. Obvious says:

    i officially love her. her music has a great beat despite it’s being annoying ,but sh’es just so funny and quirky and nonchalant about it all.. new fav.

  16. samihami says:

    Now if she actually had some talent, she might have something there. She cannot sing. I mean, she is really, really a poor singer. I don’t get her popularity.

  17. gabs says:

    “Ke$ha knows that being a pop star is inherently absurd”

    Thats why I like her too! I dont know why people choose to hate on her for being tacky, I think of her as a walking parody of a pop star. I love gaga and riri but sometimes..its too much. They think the world revolves around them and what they do is so important.

    With Kesha I think she knows its all ridiculous and fun. Her songs are catchy and fun to dance to so whatever

  18. Anonymous says:

    I served with Adam Ant, I knew Adam Ant, Adam Ant was a friend of mine. Senator, you’re no Adam Ant.

  19. kwoww says:

    shes trying to be “shocking” and “different” like lady gaga, but its just all wrong. she looks like a mallrat trying to be lady gaga.

  20. Novaraen says:

    She’s different, but not in that snobby Lady Gaga way….I think I like her more and more every day.

  21. jc126 says:

    Yes, she has a good sense of humor, but where’s the talent?

  22. jover says:

    thanks anonymous forgot about Adam Ant; samihami I really don’t think she’s that popular – i think you have to distinguish between all the pr/hype/promoting her label and the media gives her, and the actual number of people that would pay to see her on an actual concert tour. She’s not doing 2 1/2 hour live concerts before 20 thousand and upwards, she doesn’t have the talent – she’s appearing on industry created faux award shows where she can lip synch her “songs” – I recently watched footage of the Stones 82′ concert tour and MJ’s thriller tour where both legends played before 70,000 in stadium venues – that’s talent and popularity, Kesha’s nothing of the sort and an insult to real singers trying to make it.

  23. gg says:

    This chick’s nasally whining “singing” gives me brain freeze even worse than Katy Perry. They prove anybody can be “big” in showbiz.

    As far as the image, why does she look like she’s 40? She needs to chop off all her hair and start over.

  24. danielle says:

    She’s def. growing on me.

  25. Hollowdoll says:

    I really don’t know her music, but I love the way she dresses. It’s such a riot. If I had my way, everyday would be Halloween and I’d wear whatever I want. So many people take themselves too seriously. She looks like a lot of fun to hang out with.

  26. Penguen says:

    Her hair reminds me of Billy Ray Cyrus aka The Mullet.

    As for Ke$sha, I have to say that I like her. It’s not serious music. It openly relies heavily on production values, and it doesn’t try to be something that it isn’t (this is why pretentious bands like Coldplay drive me nuts, no offense).

    I mean, it’s obvious Ke$ha isn’t the driving talent behind her songs, but I don’t think that really matters in her case. She has a catchy product.

  27. devilgirl says:

    @Min- At least I know someone reads my posts! LOL!
    o/t-
    Hedwig was a great movie and I love John Cameron Mitchell because of that movie. Rabbit Hole should be interesting to see with his point of view.

    He has a great singing voice.

  28. Belle Epoch says:

    #23 totally agree – like a Lady Gaga for the mall set

    She looks like the illegitimate love child of Big Bird and Snuffleuppagus

  29. Riley says:

    I loved the Joe Dirt comment… very funny!

  30. Laura says:

    F***ing pop stars these days… Hmm, I only look good with a lot of makeup, am a mediocre singer, and would look ridiculous in crazy “high fashion” clothes. I should totally be a popstar!

  31. Ivy says:

    She looks like the Dollar Tree version of Gaga…

    Everytime I see her, I picture the side-by-sides of her and John Travolta – my brain just can’t self-correct at this point – it’s burned in there for forever -

  32. mln says:

    @devilgirl oh he is in it I will definitely have to check it out then :)

  33. Gabriela says:

    Gawd, I love Kesha. She’s my guilty pleasure. She’s sooooo fabulous!!!

  34. yeahright says:

    With her, Rhianna, GaGa and Will.I.am, its the return of “Glitter Rock”.

    For God’s sake, fire your stylist. You look like a muppet.

  35. serena says:

    totally dumb. I’m speechless.

  36. Meanchick says:

    Okay, this is a sum total of crap, dumpster leftovers, Halloween and a dollop of hot mess!

  37. Persistent Cat says:

    She sucks and she’s untalented. Looking at her just screams “I’m trying too hard.” You’re not Bowie, you’ll never be Bowie and you’re nowhere near as pretty as Bowie.

  38. Natalie says:

    reminds me of the movie Joe Dirt

  39. Kim says:

    She wears what she wants for herself unlike Lady Gaga et all who try so hard to “shock” with their outfits. At least Keisha keeps it real and wears whatever she wants and hasnt morphed into plastic surgery Barbie like most other female singers do (hint hint lady gaga how many nose jobs have you gotten recently).

  40. PrettyLights says:

    Love this girl, she’s just having fun with her 15 minutes of fame, and why the heck not? Why bag on her for dressing how she wants and being silly? More young stars need to take a cue – the world does not only consist of hair, makeup, and clothes – it’s also about living and having a great time doing it, and maybe poking fun at yourself in the process.

  41. abel says:

    L M A O! that’s all i have to say. <3it

  42. Liana says:

    don’t like her music, but her personality is growing on me.

  43. wunderkindt says:

    She looks like a dude in punk wannabe drag.

  44. bellaluna says:

    She should pose with a cut-out of Jared Leto in his hair-fuckery heyday! Now THAT would be a sight to see!

  45. mtn girl says:

    @ jen: “She looks like Joe Dirt.” — LMAO, kinda like JD in drag!

    Do not get the appeal of this girl – no talent except for trying too hard to be *different* and why does she always look dirty, no matter how hard she tries to dress up?

    She looks like Courtney Love and Adam Ant had a love child in a thrift store, then topped it off with a touch of skank and nasty used boots.

  46. jemshoes says:

    This is totally “Jem and the Holograms!” So, for me, it’s kind of fabulous. :D She actually looks more like Clash from the Misfits with that purple boa.

    Wow, I’m really showing my age today! :D

  47. marisa says:

    she is so annoying. she’s going to look back on these pics one day and cringe…just like the rest of us are doing right now.

  48. Dawn says:

    For the love of God. Take that nasty looking wig off of your head! The gold lipstick isn’t that bad!

  49. i like this girl
    she can do anything she wants anytime she wants
    crazy but funny

  50. Chris says:

    My five year old looks like that after he’s been playing with his dress up box.

  51. lorana says:

    dumb, pahetic and desperate for attention or totally thrashed on some mind altering substance.

  52. Stronzilla says:

    Hey, who hasn’t once dated a guy who had a Keith Richards vibe and then started acting like woman.

  53. LT says:

    Why all the hate on Kesha? She’s just having fun and definitely not taking herself serious which is refreshing! I love this girl, she makes me laugh.

  54. gg says:

    Freckles, grown-out beach hair, and a California tan do not help to make you look edgy.

  55. Faye says:

    Shiny gold lipstick is go, the rest is ridiculous.

  56. The Hamm is My Dream Man says:

    How old is this girl? She looks like a teenager headed out for Halloween as David Bowie-but a teenager in some small town where she couldn’t really get the materials necessary so she just went with what she had on hand and bought a Joe Dirt wig.

    The problem with Ke$ha, in my opinion, is that she’s a terrible performer and all of her “looks” are incredibly budget. Like she went to a costume store with a budget of $50 and was told to go hog wild.

    She has no style. And when there is no substance (i.e. no talent), you’ve got to have some style to mask it.
