What is it about Ke$ha?
Generally, I don't like pop stars nor celebrities. They're usually full of sh*t, completely self-absorbed and totally out of touch with the universe.
But I've got to admit that I've got a HUGE crush on Ke$ha! Between the music she puts out, her voice (amazingly sexy!), her spirit, her intelligence, her attitude, her hair, her face, her body, her youthful naiveté combined with the common sense to understand that she doesn't know it all, and doesn't want to .... I am incredibly enamored with Ke$ha!
I'm not a blindly rabid fan since there are things about Ke$ha that I'm NOT so into; like the funky colored lipsticks and the obesession with mentioning "glitter" in almost all of her songs. But I don't like EVERYTHING about ANYBODY, and I'm pretty sure that nobody likes everything about me either! And anyway, those things are part of the total Ke$ha package.
But what probably sums up my attraction to Ke$ha best is a recent quote she gave about her SNL performance (which I LOVED btw), "I don't use Auto-Tune ...... and in a society where everything is supposed to be perfect — down to what I wear, what I look like, my body, my voice, my outfits — I'm not perfect, and I embrace it,and I think that's what a lot of people are finding not being up to par to, like, the standard that other people have set, but I'm just being real. And I think what I'm doing is good."
What you're doing isn't just good my dear .... it's GREAT!
You'll notice that what she DID say was that she is comfortable being herself and not too worried about what other people think, without being obnoxious or arrogant about it. She really likes the music she is producing and has confidence in it.
What she DIDN'T say was that her critics are a**holes, or give some long winded BS speech about being "true to herself" or a bunch of other cliche's which so many pop stars use today when they are criticized.
So keep going Ke$ha and realize that your fan base is pretty diverse and really looking forward to hearing some new stuff soon!
