This week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly features a profile of randy new pop star Ke$ha (see an exclusive portrait from the photo shoot), who recently overtook Susan Boyle at the top of the charts and has generally been blowing up the music scene like she’s Lady Gaga in 2009. If you know anything about the budding pop princess, you know this: She’s not lacking in the personality department. Ke$ha always has something to say, and it’s usually kinda crazy. So we thought we’d treat you to all the juicy, leftover tidbits from our interview with her. Little gems like how she gets frisky while text messaging and Twittering, her hatred of “celebretards,” and how she wouldn’t want to meet Jay-Z in a rap-off. Enjoy below!
On the glitter around her right eye: “If I smear glitter on my face, you don’t have a choice—you will be more attracted to me. It’s part of our brand makeup. So anyway, then I started thinking, why just do my eyes? Why not my entire body? And at the end of my shows why don’t I put a backpack on that’s like a hand-held cannon and blast glitter at people? So not only do I look attractive, but so does everybody who’s dancing? It’s kind of like become my thing.”
On providing vocals for Flo Rida’s smash single “Right Round”: “I didn’t get credit, I didn’t get paid. Honestly, I walked into the studio and there was Flo Rida and Dr. Luke doing the song, and I was like, ‘I’ll just sing on it. I’m just happy you like my voice enough to put me on your song.’ I believe in karma, so if I’m not a douchebag about that, it’ll just come back to me. So it’s like, ‘You know what, if you don’t want to pay me, it’s fine. I’m excited to have my voice on the radio.’”
On her relationship with her former marching bandmates from high school: “I get text messages all the time. And they were all such bitches, so now I’m like, Eat it! I save their numbers to prank later.”
On people thinking that she runs around with the likes of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie: “Oh, gross! I’m from the opposite of that. Do you think that those girls dig through the garbage for their clothes? That’s what I’m saying. And, you know, would they live in a house with 10 people that they’ve never met, you know? And would they be OK if they never came home for four days and just went to Vegas on a whim? Like, would they never wear high heels when they go out so they can run from the cops? Very different.”
Much more after the jump!
