I’m not sure what Ke$ha’s claim to fame is. Sure, I know she’s a “singer”, but after trying to listen to a few minutes of her music, I gave up. In addition to her music, Ke$ha has recently made magazine “history”. Ke$ha is currently on the cover of this months October/November issue of Vibe. She is now the first living white solo female to cover Vibe. The operative word is living. Amy Winehouse did have a cover last year in honor of her death, and Gwen Stefani posed with Pharrell Williams in 2005.
In her interview, Ke$ha brags about the props she’s received from rappers. “The first time someone called me a rapper, I started laughing,” she tells Vibe. “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 [Khalifa], who’s a good friend of mine, thinks I’m a good rapper? Snoop? It’s crazy and funny to me.”
Maybe I’m missing something. Or maybe these rappers truly have no taste. When I think of a good rapper, I definitely don’t think of Ke$ha. Honestly, I’m actually tired of typing the dollar sign in her name, but that’s besides the point. But apparently Ke$ha doesn’t give a damn about what people think about her, “The first record, people tore me a new a**hole, and were f**king steady on my balls, and tried to make me feel like I was such a piece of s**t. I did some soul-searching, and realized nothing I’m doing is negative, it’s actually super positive. You can change people’s 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 f**king do this.”
I actually have no idea what any of that means. Oh, she’s talking about her haters. Apparently if people don’t like her music, they’re haters. Well congrats to Ke$ha on her history making cover. I’m sure all of her haters, are probably hating. I doubt it though. R.I.P music.
