um... i honestly think the "problems" with ke$ha are a bit exaggerated.

because i have nothing better to do, here's a summary of ke$ha's music. with the screencaps, i legitimately tried to be fair and used whatever the "trashiest" part i could find was:

first single: tik tok


second single: blah blah blah


third single: your love is my drug


fourth single: take it off


fifth single: we r who we r


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

sixth single: blow


and then to take it one step further, here's the chorus of each song on her album and ep:

Quote
your love, your love, your love is my drug
Quote
don't stop, make it pop, dj blow my speakers up
tonight i'ma fight till we see the sunlight
tick tock on the clock but the party don't stop
Quote
there's a place down town where the freaks all come around
it's hole in the wall, it's a dirty free for all
and they turn me on when they take it off
there's a place i know if you're looking for a show
where they good hardcore
and they turn me on when they take it off
Quote
i never thought that you would be the one
acting like a slut when i was gone
maybe you shouldn't kiss and tell
you really should have kept it in your pants,
i'm hearing dirty stories from your friends
maybe you shouldn't kiss and tell
Quote
stephen, why won't you call me?
i'm sitting here waiting
why won't you call me?
stephen, i'm feeling pathetic,
i can't take rejection
why won't you call me?
Quote
stop talking that blah blah blah
think you'll be getting this? nah nah nah
not in the back of my car car car
if you keep talking that blah blah blah
Quote
now the party's over and everybody's gone
i'm left here with myself and i wonder what went wrong
now my heart is broken like the bottles on the floor
does it really matter or am i just hungover you
Quote
oh there's a party at a rich dude's house
if you wanna go let me know
we're gonna fight til we do it right
so let's go tonight
Quote
i'm sick and tired of the mess you made me
never gonna catch me cry
you must be blind if you can't see
you'll miss me til the day you die
Quote
d i, n o, s a, u r a dinosaur
an o l, d m, a n, you're just an old man
hittin' on me, what?
you need a cat scan!
Quote
dancing with tears in my eyes
just fighting to get through the night
losing it, with every move i die
i'm wasted, i broken inside
i'm wasting the love of my life
losing it, with every move i die
Quote
boots and boys
they bring me so much joy
i wear 'em both so pretty as i walk in the city
somethin bout boots and boys
Quote
this is our last chance, give me your hand
cos our world is spinning at the speed of light
the night is fading, heart is racing
so just come and love me like we're gonna die

Quote
we're dancing like we're dumb, our bodies going numb
we'll be forever young, you know we're superstars,
we are who we are
Quote
i don't need you or your brand new benz or your boozhy friends
and i don't need love looking like diamonds
Quote
this place about to blow
Quote
they say that true love hurts, well this could almost kill me
young love murder, that is what this must be
i would give it all to not be sleeping alone
the life is fading from me while you watch my heart bleed
young love murder, that is what this must be
i would give it all to not be sleeping alone
Quote
every single night we fight to get a little high on life
to get a little something right, something real, at least we try
time after time, try dodging all the douchebag guys,
try trading all the wasted times for something real in this crazy life
Quote
when we fell in love you made my heart drop
and you had me thinkin bout you nonstop
but you cry bout this and whine about that
when you grow a pair you can call me back
yeah i think you're hot, i think you're alright
but you're acting like a chick all the time
you were cool and now you're not, just like that
when you grow a pair, you can call me back
Quote
so i'll see you next tuesday
if i ever get desperate or i'm so beyond faded, just a
c u next tuesday
kinda nice how this morning i won't sit around waiting
and i'm not just being cold, i'm just watching you pretend
like your heart is on your sleeve when you know you have a girlfriend

it's kind of sad how ke$ha can write her own music, have her message consistently be about self-acceptance and anti-materialism, never show off her body (which she often acknowledges that she does not claim to have) and not use "models" in her videos, advocate for animal rights, and choose to NOT lip sync (among other things), and then be attacked for being a generic popstar who's ugly and dirty and amoral by people who seem to dislike top 40 sorts of things she's never really participated or believed in.

She still hasn't done a porno?

(The commercial sort, or at least the accidentally-on-purpose leaked to the press sort, not one that's really just for her own amusement...)

Oops, the auto-tune guy accidentally set the machine for "Katy Perry"...  how embarrassing.

Honestly? I really like her. I don't love her, but out of all the extremely mainstream artists she's by far one of the best for me. Her songs are really catchy and very danceable. Really all pop music has to be for me. Plus, sometimes her lyrics are really hilarious. Usually because of the irony in them, but sometimes also just because they're ridiculously poor.

I think her whole image is for shock value and the songs are poppy and formulaic on purpose. I think it's all been smart move after smart move and that she's actually a pretty good vocalist. There, I said it.

It's weird to see a hate thread on the box for a singer doing what she wants with her image.
I've only ever heard one Ke$ha song, and I absolutely hated every second of it. The lyrics were stupid and the music was annoyingly poppy. I don't like her voice. I don't care if other people want to listen to it, though, and her image doesn't bother me in any way, even if it's not something I'm into.
Her image/persona is still better than Lady Gaga's.

I'm not a huge fan of her songs but you can't deny that she's a lot more famous than anyone on here and to be honest, I think this thread is actually really horrible and unnecessary. As Astica said, you're hating on a public figure for how she chooses to present herself to the world and I don't really see what business that is of anyone else. You can disagree but to mock her like this is completely opposite to what I thought the 'Box was about.

I don't much care for her. One of her songs bugs the living hell outta me, the one where she says something to the effect of; 'live the night like you want to die young.' So the first thing my mind thinks of ways people die young and it's always accidents, drugs, suicide, murder. Yeah, I know no great stories start with salad, but having dealt with what happens with friends and family when someone 'dies young' having the fucking time of their life, is no comfort at all. it's awful.

Mmm, actually the lyric is "let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young." It's a pretty positive and epicurean song. She caught flack for it because it came out around the time of the Newtown, Connecticut tragedy, which I also thought was pretty dumb considering the song's message.
