'Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life' season 2 trailer drops: 'I'm a twerkaholic!'

Ever wanted to see Ke$ha twerk in front of her mother? It’s your lucky day.

The singer’s MTV docuseries Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life is about to enter season two, and according to the new trailer, it’s even nuttier than the pretty-damn-nutty first season. (Remember when she stalked her ex-boyfriend? That was weird! Wonder if he watches the show.)

Other than the twerking antics, the clip claims some great soundbites like, “I don’t want to date a man that wears more makeup than me,” “You know you’re doing something right when the Westboro Baptist Church pickets your show,” and “SHAAARK!” To be fair, there was a shark.

Miley Cyrus and the rise of #YOLO pop

MILEY-CYRUS-CONCERT.jpg

One week ago, Miley Cyrus left the nation reeling after her performance of “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines” at the Video Music Awards. Parents watched in horror as the girl they remembered as Hannah Montana twerked in a teddy-bear leotard, gyrated on Robin Thicke‘s crotch in nothing more than a creamsicle bikini, and rubbed her nether-regions with a phallic foam finger. The whole display was provocative, pointless, and, for most viewers, shocking.

But in all actuality, Cyrus’ deliberately vexing presentation wasn’t shocking at all. “We Can’t Stop” is a natural extension of the “Can’t Be Tamed” philosophy that Cyrus has been peddling since 2010. And by the same token, the song — in its irreverent disregard of all people in the name of a good time — is the crystallization of pop music’s ideals over the past year. In the wake of fun.‘s “We Are Young,” pop has quickly become a medium that worships its own youth unabashedly. Granted, pop music has always heralded youth (tellingly, Justin Timberlake, 32, was given a legacy prize at this year’s VMAs) — but it’s never been so self-aware about it.

“It’s not just about being like, ‘We don’t care what people say,'” Cyrus said of “We Can’t Stop” during a Billboard cover shoot in June. “It’s about living for right now.” In the same interview Cyrus said the single’s edgy video was meant to resonate with young people: “I know that we all live for those nights right now. We’re all young,” she said. “I want to talk to my fans about that.” That may sound like a shallow conversation, but currently, it’s the chosen topic in much of 2013’s pop music. READ FULL STORY

'American Girl' Bonnie McKee has a lot of famous friends -- watch Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Macklemore, KISS, and more make lipdub cameos

When you write hit songs for some of the biggest artists on the Hot 100, they kind of owe you one, don’t they? And it looks like Bonnie McKee may have found a way to get a whole lot of pop superstars to repay the favor. Plus: Joan Rivers.

McKee, who has written songs like Katy Perry’s “Part of Me,” Ke$ha’s “C’mon,” and most of Britney’s Femme Fatale album, is the latest pop songwriter to cross over to center stage, following the footsteps of writers-turned-artists (and frequently also still writers) Jessie J, Sia, and Skylar Grey.

In the “American Girl” video released today, Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Kathy Griffin, Macklemore, Joan Rivers, Karmin, George Takei, Adam Lambert, Carly Rae Jepsen, Jenny McCarthy, KISS, Jason Derulo, Jewel, Tommy Lee, Sirah, Taio Cruz, Jane Lynch, and more all pop in to lipsync lines like “I was raised by a television/Every day is a competition.” McKee also sings about falling in love at a 7-11.

Ke$ha parties hard for 'Crazy Kids' video: Watch it here

Last night, Ke$ha went on MTV to pull back the curtain on “Crazy Kids,” a single that may or may not end up being the official song of summer 2013.

The narrative of “Crazy Kids” is pretty straightforward — Ke$ha Goes to a House Party — but the devil is in the details. As Stefon would say, this clip has everything: Gold-flaked cornrows; adorable pitbulls; a rapping digital will.i.am projected onto the helmet of a spacesuit; a Ke$ha-themed pinball machine.

There don’t appear to be any little people, though there are a bunch of shirtless dancing dudes who look like Rick Rubin. If those things all sound like a good time, check out the video below:

Ke$ha's 'My Crazy Beautiful Life' trailer: 'I keep on having penis dreams' -- VIDEO

Bad cartwheels, penis dreams, and so much glitter: that’s right, the full two-minute trailer Ke$ha’s MTV show My Crazy Beautiful Life has hit the web.

The video is a pop extravaganza, showing everything you’d want to know (and then more) about the Warrior‘s backstage life. One moment, we’re watching Ke$ha suggestively chew her food; the next, we’re given a glimpse at her serious connection to a teary, overwhelmed fan.

“You’re documenting the change from people thinking I’m disposable, but now people get what I’m doing,” she says at one emotional moment of the trailer. After burping. Tada!

Take a look at all sides of Ke$ha in the video below:

Ke$ha leads a band of furry pranksters in 'C'mon' video: Watch it here

Did Ke$ha just produce her generation’s “1979” video?

No, no she didn’t, but the singer’s new clip for “C’mon” shares some of the basic DNA of that classic Smashing Pumpkins video. Directed by Darren Craig, the video finds Ke$ha jumping into a van with a gang of costumed ne’er-do-wells (and/or fetishists) who run around town causing low-grade trouble. Convenient stores are trashed, cops are disrespected, and general recklessness is achieved.

Watch Ke$ha party like it’s “1979” in the new “C’mon” video below: READ FULL STORY

Ke$ha apologizes for 'Die Young' on Twitter

When word broke that Ke$ha’s single “Die Young” was disappearing from radio stations in light of the Newtown, Conn., tragedy, a lot of eyebrows were raised — including Ke$ha’s own glitter-stewn eyebrows.

The Warrior singer took to her Twitter to offer an explanation and her condolences regarding the hit song’s lyrics, which many are attributing to its drop in radio play. (Billboard reports that the single fell 11% this week, sliding from No. 1 to No. 2 on the pop chart.)

“I understand,” Ke$ha wrote in a tweet that, alas, was later taken down. “I had my very own issue with ‘die young’ for this reason. I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO.”

It’s an interesting apology, given that most people acknowledge that the song’s message advocates hedonism and living life to the fullest, not violence or homicide. She also wasn’t quite clear about who forced her to sing the lyrics or how they did so; the song’s writing credits include Ke$ha herself, as well as fun.’s Nate Ruess and producers Dr. Luke, Cirkut, and Benny Blanco. But perhaps that’s why the tweet was ultimately taken down.

“I’m so so so sorry for anyone who has been effected by this tragedy,” she added in a second tweet, which still remains. “And I understand why my song is now inappropriate. words cannot express.”
