We usually ain’t checkin’ for this chick, but she actually sounds like she has some sense in this interview.
Glamour interviewed Ke$ha about being a rockin’ chick and why she breaks up with guys and stuff. We never thought we’d say this — but we wish more girls thought like her.
Check out the excerpts below:
GLAMOUR: You were cranking some rock during your Glamour photo shoot. I’ve heard your new album is going to be much more rock ‘n’ roll.
KE$HA: People say that rock ‘n’ roll is dead, and I am making it my mission to resurrect it. I have rock ‘n’ roll pumping through my veins.
GLAMOUR: Do you think it’s harder to succeed in rock as a woman?
KE$HA: I know that I have balls. I have bigger balls than a lot of the men that I meet. I’m just a ballsy motherf–ker. I’m not afraid of pushing boundaries. That’s what you have to do to become an icon.
GLAMOUR: Women seem to be taking over pop music right now: you, Gaga, Rihanna, Katy Perry…. Why do you think that is?
KE$HA: I definitely think women are running it right now. We are not afraid to speak our minds. It’s exciting because that’s what I stand for, for people to be irreverent and to be themselves.
GLAMOUR: How big’s the gap between Ke$ha in real life and Ke$ha onstage, drinking men’s blood and dancing with a giant bouncing peen?
KE$HA: I’m just very amused by five-year-old humor. Don’t get me wrong: I do destroy men on a weekly basis. It’s like a hobby. I’m like a praying mantis. They f–k me, and then I eat them. But who isn’t amused by a giant, dancing peen? Sometimes when I’m sad, I make my assistant put on the peen outfit and bounce around my house.
GLAMOUR: You generate such strong reactions—positive and negative. Your Twitter handle, @keshasuxx, is a joke on that, right?
KE$HA: I’m just taking the piss out of all of it. You have to have a sense of humor about life to get through it.
GLAMOUR: Why do you usually break it off with a guy?
KE$HA: I’m in the middle of writing a new record. I’m taking so many different instrument lessons. I’m also designing animal-friendly jewelry and a fake-fur line. So if a man is not, like, the second coming, then what’s the point? I have other s–t to do.
!!! <– What she said!!! We love this!!!
GLAMOUR: Your tattered American-flag shirt is very cool.
KE$HA: I wear it all the time. It represents my freedom to speak about exactly what I want to, whenever I want to.
GLAMOUR: For this photo shoot, your look is very natural. When you’re not performing, how do you feel about going outside without makeup and knowing you might get photographed?
KE$HA: My makeup is usually left over from the night before. I’m not really worried about the photographs because if I tell my fans not to give a f–k about the haters, then I have to practice what I preach. I embrace the imperfections and celebrate them.
GLAMOUR: What are your favorite beauty products? Let’s start with the body paint.
KE$HA: I’m coming out with my own line. And I found Bumble and Bumble dry shampoo that is like God’s gift. You don’t have to shower. You just put it in and instantly look like the eighties.
Okay, so aside from sounding like someone who doesn’t like to bathe, she’s sounding like she has some more sense than she used to. But really tho, we ain’t mad at a chick with big balls.
