Ke$ha Speaks on Unique Name, Song Writing and More

by at . Comments

Take one part Lady GaGa, mix it with a dash of Madonna and toss in some Pink. The result? Burgeoning music superstar Ke$ha.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the singer explains the origin of her name's spelling, while planning for a huge 2010...

On the year ahead: Let's just pretend the world ends in 2012, I want people to live as if it's 2011 in December. I try not to think too far ahead, because I also feel like I'm trying to do as much as I can to set myself up properly. I put on the best live show, the absolute best live show I can possibly can.

On the irony of the dollar sign in her name: It's so weird, I hate champagne, so there's a song called "Party at a Rich Dude's House" where I went and peed in the champagne bottles and thought it was hilarious. Just kind of being an asshole, really, is what that song's about.

On the name of her album: Animal, the name of the record, it's kind of my steez, I have to say. I named it that because I want people to lose it when they listen to my record and go to the animal part of themselves that they suppress. Society has taught us to suppress certain things and not do certain things.

You could add a part of Uffie, whose 20006's Pop the Glock sure sounds a lot like Ke$ha's Tik Tok. I can fully believe her handlers have taken bits and pieces from other performers to put her together. That's where the comparisons stop. As for letting your animal out, that sounds a lot like Gaga telling her fans to be themselves. Another ripoff. The peeing in bottles to be drunk by other people is simply mean and perverted. Can't imagine anyone doing that, certainly no one I'd want to watch perform.

Typical garbage. With all of the world's issues going on inspiration should come easy for an artist. Unfortunately, fans are force fed songs about peeing in a champagne bottle by an artist who spells her name with a dollar sign. Where is this generation's Bob Dylan? John Lennon? Janis Joplin? I know there out there somewhere.

Just what the world needs! Another celebrity with an IQ smaller than her shoe size. She's about as "unique" as an STD.
