Ke$ha wants her music to leave people “visually and sonically violated”


Sometimes, Ke$ha reminds me of Our Beloved Raccoon McPantless. There’s a difference between the two wildly inappropriate drunk children though. Raccoon is all angsty and teenage and “look at me, I’m SO SHOCKING” and she’s earnest in her efforts to be thought of as the most hardcore pantless raccoon EVER. Ke$ha, on the other hand, is also kind of angsty and “look at me, I’m SO DRUNK” but she does everything with a wink and a nod. I guess what separates them is that Ke$ha knows it’s all a joke, and she’s in on it. She gets that pop music is inherently dumb, and she’s having fun while it’s her turn. As I’ve said before, I’ve grown to like Ke$ha because she gives good interviews and she actually seems like she’d be fun to hang out with. Now I can add a new layer to wanting to get drunk with her – she knew “everything” about sex since the age of seven. And she’s been taking care of herself since she was 14. Oh, and she wants her mystery father to be Mick Jagger. Good luck, Ke$ha.

Kesha’s mother taught her ”everything about sex” before she was seven years old, because she wanted her to be responsible. Kesha knew “everything about sex” before she was seven years old. The ‘Tik Tok’ singers’ mother wanted her to be responsible and so from a young age encouraged her to act like an adult.

She said: “I knew everything about sex before I was even seven. My mom left me at home when I was 14 with a credit card, and a box of condoms and the keys to the car and said, ‘Don’t get pregnant and don’t drink and drive’. I had to be responsible for myself.”

The singer also warned that her live shows have a particularly adult theme – including the audience being showered with Kesha condoms – and that her fans should expect to be “visually and sonically violated” by her shows.

She added to Britain’s The Times newspaper: “I’m not a babysitter. My balls are on the table. I’m very upfront with who I am. There is sex. There is alcohol. The kids are gonna figure it out someday.”

Kesha, who has two brothers, was raised by her mother in Nashville, US, and doesn’t know who her real dad is, so she pretends she is the offspring of the lead singer of The Rolling Stones.

She added: “I talked to my mum about it. She has a sketchy memory. I don’t really care. I’m going to pretend like my dad is Mick Jagger and proceed.”

See? I mean, it’s a completely different vibe than Raccoon McPantless, although both are guilty of saying dumb stuff. And, for the record, I do think Ke$ha has a way with words. She might not be book smart, but she’s incredibly quotable and she might make a half-decent lyricist one day. Today, however, she’s a hot mess. Bless her.

    I originally began reading this thinking I was going to hate her… but I agree she does come off as both “i’m so edgy and hardcore” but also “i’m a fucking joke let’s all laugh together”

    just stop with the blue lipstick my god

    Well, as far as I’m concerned she accomplished that in the last pic.

  3. abel says:

    she’s, like Perez says, HIGH-larious. her mom seems like the kind of mom who is very idgaf about what my kid does when i first saw her on the simple life. i saw Ke$ha live opening for Rihanna last year and she actually can sing minus the electronic voice

  4. Maud says:

    I feel violated and I’m not her fan!

  5. the original bellaluna says:

    Done and done.

    And I’ve never been to one of who shows (nor will I be caught dead drunk at one either); neither am I a “fan.”

  6. anti says:

    ouch to the crotch sequins.

  7. brin says:

    She looks a little like Ashlee Simpson in the last pic.

  8. Shannon says:

    Attention whoring, that’s all it is.

  9. Lemuria says:

    How completely inappropriate to talk sex with your seven year old. It is massively damaging to raise the Kundalini energy so young. It’s child abuse.

  11. esblondie says:

    I don’t know; for some reason I LOVE this chick. I think she’s honestly beautiful but you can never really tell because she acts so crazy and she doesn’t give a good goddamn. Thumbs up, in my opinion.

    Plus, I am a sucker for her songs. Yes, I’m pushing 40 and I love her tunes. Is there a support group for that?

  12. Rachel says:

    Love her.

  13. Jess says:

    My ears are violated. Does that count?

  14. DD says:

    yes I do feel perpetually raped by her music videos and lyrics.
    Do her brothers share the same dad?

  15. abbizmal says:

    Mission accomplished then.

  16. GirlyGirl says:

    Mission accomplished Ke$ha.

    You can retire now.

  17. guesty says:

    Love her songs & her attitude…

  18. Heather says:

    Never cared too much fo rher music, but I would love to hang out with her one night. I bet we’d have a blast. Not a fan, but I don’t mind her. She’s less annoying than her contemporaries.

  19. Meanchick says:

    Sooo, she wants her music to match her fashion choices? Because I feel violated right now.

  20. jover says:

    Oh please she’s a joke – everyone on this site knows that when you have to announce you’re edgy and hardcore you’re not. You’re not hardcore if you’re doing corporate product endorsements. If you’ve read her bio there’s a lot of fakery and pr going on here. Janis Joplin and Tina Turner were/are authentic; this lame chick is just another product of the music industry – if she’s so edgy why doesn’t she boycott all these contrived award shows for starters. Let’s stop slumming; her music is junk.

  21. annaloo says:

    That’ll do,pig.

  22. Mshuffleupagus says:

    I think I’m with Kaiser on this one, I actually kinda like Kei¢ha. No one thinks she’s a bigger joke than she does. Taylor Momskank thinks she’s the next Kurt Cobain.

    But I also think her mom left Kei%ha a box of condoms because, like all of us, she assumed she has a penis.

  23. MarenGermany says:

    good comparison. I always felt that way. Kesha knows its a joke.
    Raccon not so much (I HATE THAT FUCK!)

  24. original kate says:

    i feel violated just from seeing these photos.

  25. Psyren says:

    I like Ke$sha. I find myself smiling when I hear her songs because they’re fun and she’s funny, goofy, and doesn’t take herself seriously at all. No her music isn’t anything amazing or earth shattering or even coherent most of the time but who cares? What’s wrong with just having fun sometimes?

  26. Christina says:

    That girl is so ugly. I cant stand to look at her face. Seriously.

  27. Zelda says:

    The thing that kills me is she can actually sing. Like, prettily:$ha

  28. Aries_Mira says:

    @ Rita – Ha ha! I was thinking the same thing!

  29. CB Rawks says:

    Done and done.

  30. Isa says:

    If John Travolta wasn’t gay I would say that she should pretend he is her father.

    And I AM violated by her music. I can’t listen to the radio because every other song is one by her and I hate it.
    Also, somehow my husband and I bought one of her songs on ITunes and we can’t get it off. I have deleted it several times and it just keeps coming back. So we’ll be listening to some music and then all of a sudden, “We Are Who We Are” (Well, duh!) will come on. Ugh.

  31. Katija says:

    Um, I’m calling bullshit. I’ve been to a Ke$ha concert. Why the hell not?! Tickets were cheap 🙂 It was, like, twenty-five minutes long max, tons of lip-syncing, and what I would imagine a Bieber show would be like. No cursing, definitely no condoms, and there were kids EVERYWHERE. The whole thing was very innocent and playful. I think she sprayed a bottle of champagne at the audience, but I mean…I wouldn’t call that very hardcore, honestly.

  32. SallyJay says:

    @Zelda – thank you for that link! wow, loved it. I think Kesha’s great anyway, fun, funny, and totally self-aware/in on the joke – and this proves she can sing too. Also goes some way to proving that she’s not just paying lip service when she talks about loving the real greats like the Stones etc.

    ETA – I’d also love to hang out with her for a night. Total destruction I bet!

  33. Emily says:

    I don’t understand why she does that horrible sing-talk thing when she actually has an okay voice when she tries. Better than Katy Perry’s, in any case. And yeah, I reckon she’d be fun to go out drinking with. You know you wouldn’t be the trashiest bitch there at the end of the night!

  34. chasingadalia says:

    She has some of the funniest quotes I’ve read.

  35. Gabriela says:

    Even though her most famous songs and singles all have cliche party lyrics, her unreleased tracks have great lyrics. She is smart. She is more than just an annoying pop artist who sings music she didn’t even write.

  36. C-DUB says:

    done and done!

  37. erika says:

    Zelda – WOW! That really changed my opinion of this girl. I’m impressed.

  38. jayem says:

    Little tidbit – It was her who sang the hook on Flo Rida’s “Right Round”. So she can actually sing. I’m not sure why she does the Tigre and Bunny style white-girl-rapping.

  39. Laura says:

    I don’t like Kesha, but I applaud her mom for being honest with her.

  40. Amelia says:

    I didn’t think anyone could surpass GaGa in the Ugly Sweepstakes, but Kesha has actually won the Triple Crown. Good Lord. BTW, the horse reference was not coincidence…..

  41. anon says:

    for some reason i don’t think her my mom taught her about sex at the age of 7. i suspect that she maybe have been sexually abused as a child
