Ke$ha is always saying shit that makes me want to douse myself in fire to get clean again after hearing it, but this time she’s taken it to a whole new level: the female Bear Grylls decided it would be a great idea to drink her own pee and doesn’t particularly mind that she smells like “shrimp on a diaper”. Lord, take me now, I’m not meant for this world.
From BBC Radio 1 (via New Zealand Herald):
“I was told drinking my own pee was good, I was trying to be healthy … Somebody tried to take my pee away from me and I said, ‘That is mine!’ So I snatched it up and took a chug and it was really gross so I don’t do it anymore.”
Her outlandish behaviour has won the singer an army of adoring fans.
However, she joked she wishes the people around her on a day-to-day basis would appreciate her more.
“[How often do I get told I'm amazing?] Not enough! My fans are amazing to me but usually the people around me say, ‘You’re disgusting!’ or, ‘Put your pants on!’ or ‘You’re late!’ Or they say, ‘You smell weird, what’s that smell?’ I smell like a hobo,” she admitted.
“One time, someone told me I smelt like a shrimp on a diaper. I thought I could make a fragrance that was little like a shrimp on a Faberge diaper but I don’t know if people want to smell like that.”
I know Ke$ha underwent a spiritual awakening and a bump and grind session with a ghost fairly recently so she’s not all there – not that she’s ever been, but yknow – but I just don’t understand how principles such as “basic hygiene” can pass someone old enough to wipe their own ass by. Don’t give me that crap about the medicinal uses of urine in ancient culture (and even present) – anyone drinking their own pee that isn’t the survivor of a plane crash in the mountains or whatever has a problem and belongs on My Strange Addiction.
As for smelling bad, I’ll put it to you this way: being a hippie is your personal prerogative… until I can smell you in my space and have trouble keeping down my lunch. Has hipsterdom gone so far that now they’re appropriating pure filth as a standard of cool?
