“It doesn’t go anywhere. I’ve tried to get it off, but then I just reapply, so it seems relatively pointless. After about the third show I ever played, I was like, ‘f*ck it.’ You might as well just learn to love it. I’ve found glitter anywhere a person could find glitter. I’ve choked on glitter. I found it behind the backs of my eyelids. Even in my food, in my beer. It clogs my shower after every show. There’s glitter in my piss. It’s so gross.”
I know I’ve told you about how much I love glitter, I know I have. For instance, I’ll go to Michael’s and buy tubes of glitter for decoration, like right now I have about ten little tubes of glitter just hanging out on my bookshelf like I’m some sort of drag queen/witch hybrid, and I love it. And that’s why I have such conflicting feelings for Ke$ha, because we’re so alike, but so, so different. Ke$ha is my doppelganger.

All petty snark aside, Ke$ha seriously looks gorgeous in these photos. One hundred percent beautiful – no question about it. And there’s not even an innuendo of oral sex involved. That, my friends? Is a sign of true talent. That’s some good picture-taking right there.
You can also check out some of Terry’s other stuff on his website, Terry’s Diary. There are some pretty nice photos of Amy Winehouse circa 2007 that’ll tug at your heartstrings if these photos of Ke$ha looking as soft as a newborn kitten didn’t do it for you.

I know, I was shocked by the notion too, but something tells me that, unlike her previous efforts, Ke$ha‘s next album is going to be mediocre to all right. Doesn’t it feel like the world is shifting a little bit?
“I definitely want the next record to be experimental and I would love to play with all the different sounds of the music I listen to. I really want some dirty guitar and I wouldn’t mind if there were elements of blues.”
Some bluesy elements? Yes please! See, the thing is that Ke$ha’s always saying that she can really sing, she’s just having a good time halfway rapping about booze or whatever it is she’s doing now. But couldn’t you see her settling in with a nice guitar and just knocking our socks off? No? Well, learn how to dream.

If I can think of a single image that our forefathers would be proud to see as a representation of all their hard work, it would be this photo of Ke$ha in torn fishnets, a ripped American flag shirt, and a look of patriotism on her face the likes of which I’ve never seen before. I just know that on this very day, 235 years ago, when Thomas Jefferson was gazing proudly upon the Declaration of Independence, he also had just a sliver of pride in his heart for the future of this great land.
I bet that our girl Ke$ha is celebrating this fine Independence Day out in the sun with her BFF, Jack Daniels with a good old-fashioned money shot to close out the day, so, as I’m sure Thomas Jefferson would have wanted, I wish the very same to you!

Hennessy and cash money, everybody – what makes for a more solid foundation for a relationship than that? A shared talent for making shitty, unbearable music, you say? Well, then it looks like T-Pain and Ke$ha have the trifecta, so don’t expect to see K-Pain fade away anytime soon!
Just to let you enjoy this classic romance* a little longer, I’ll show you the origins (from Twitter, natch):
*Of course no one knows if this is a legit romance or if it’s just a couple of jokesters having a a good laugh. I’m not all too familiar with T-Pain, but me and Ke$ha go way back, and I feel like she wouldn’t include such an innocent bottle of booze if it was just a joke, right? Also, I’m aware that T-Pain is married, but, uh, open your eyes to the real world. I’m going to choose to believe in these two free-spirited lovers, what about you?

If you read this here blog regularly, then you know that I have quite the tumultuous relationship with Ke$ha. We’ve gone through several ups and downs, and it certainly hasn’t been easy, but I think that finally we’ve reached an understanding. See, she just did an interview with Billboard, and after she talked (joked? I can’t be sure) about banging her first groupie, she shared this story:
At a recent show, she pulled a boy onto the stage-something she does midway through each performance-but it was Ke$ha who was left speechless. “He started crying and he told me that the only reason he was alive was because of my music,” she says. “He’d never felt accepted for who he was, and through my songs he realized that there are people out there who will love him for exactly who he is, and so he decided to come out of the closet.” It was this interaction, however brief, that convinced Ke$ha (born Kesha Rose Sebert) to ignore the critics and focus on her fans. “I’m doing this to make people happy,” she says, “and that’s translating. Quite frankly, that’s the reason I think I was put on the planet this lifetime. I’m here to make music, so the fact that it’s resulting in a positive change is the ultimate payoff for me.”
So really, this girl can offend our senses all she wants to (and she does), but if she’s saving kids’ lives while she does it, then I think we can all buck up and take it, don’t you?
