She's just having fun...
Ke$ha recently spoke with Vibe Magazine about her public image, her music career and more. Check out the highlights:
On her upcoming album: "The first record was a celebration of partying and being young, but this record's a better look at my personality. Whatever, I drink like a champion. But I can also do other stuff. I have a sense of humor about my lyrics. I'm not a train wreck, I'm just having fun."
On being referred to as "white-girl rap": "The first time someone called me a rapper, I started laughing. I was shocked, and thought it was hilarious. But then, Andre 3000 was telling me how he thinks I'm a good rapper. And Wiz, who's a good friend of mine, thinks I'm a good rapper? Snoop? It's crazy and funny to me."
On public perception and criticism of her: "I've really just been doing a lot of thinking about life. The first record, people tore me a new asshole, and were fucking steady on my balls, and tried to make me feel like I was such a piece of shit. I did some soul-searching, and realized nothing I'm doing is negative, it's actually super positive. You can change peoples' mood in a three-and-a-half minute song. So why not spread positive energy and be funny? Let [the haters] be miserable. Anyone who wants to have a good time, let's fucking do this."
On admitting that she's a "hippie": "Not like the patchouli kind of hippie, but the kind where you love everybody...I went swimming with whales in the middle of nowhere, it was like naked boat ladies swimming with baby whales for a week. Then I was rehabilitating baby lions who were like pissing in my tent, and I was feeding them with a bottle, because their parents orphaned them and they're trying to rehabilitate these other lions that were kept in captivity."
On being herself: "If I tried to pretend to be something I wasn't, people would have smelled bullshit a long time ago. I would've gotten eaten alive if I tried to be a heel-wearing little princess. It's just not who I am. I've had people try to make me act right, but it's just not gonna happen. I just can't not say inappropriate things."
