24-year-old pop singer from Nashville, Tennessee that signed to Dr. Luke
's Kemosabe label in 2005. Spent a good 4 years behind the scenes co-writing and providing vocals for other artists before releasing Animal.
Peeves about Ke$ha's music include overkill of autotune, inane lyrics, and the fact that it's even called "music." Contrary to its content, she isn't an alcoholic streetwalker. She admits she enjoys partying and drinking, but not in excess. She wouldn't appear in Flo Rida
's "Right Round" video, for fear of being visually objectified.
However, she's not amazing. Yes, I have listened to "Goodbye," "Invisible," and the like. While "Kesha" is reputably fresher in style, the lyrical quality and her voice, while pleasant, is amateurish at best.
Fans have also come across and gloat about a little-known fact that her IQ is over 140. I'll be sure to keep that in mind when I have to turn in a 34-page astrophysics paper. However, as an artist, she proves to be just the kind of mediocre, clubbing-enthused pop star romping about, besides that giddy dash of glitter.
Not only are her lyrics "unique" and "ballsy," they are also empowering to women, such as in "Blah Blah Blah," when demanding guys to "show them where their dicks at," is considered an one-up to the number of times women have been objectified in music. Despite her noble goal, she seems to have forgotten that women empowerment doesn't equal misandry/male objectification.
