Dr. Luke and Ke$ha are Suing Each Other

dr luke and keshaDr. Luke, who produced nearly every song on Animal and Warrior, not to mention top 40 contenders by Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson, is being sued by Ke$ha for physically and emotionally abusing her.

Ke$ha’s camp claims he attacked her drugged her, forced himself on her and insulted her, which all led to her well-documented breakdown and debilitating struggle with body image.

On one occasion, she says she had to run down the Pacific Coast Highway into the mountains with no shoes on to escape his arm-thrashing wrath.

Kesha’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, tells TMZ … “This lawsuit is a wholehearted effort by Kesha to regain control of her music career and her personal freedom after suffering for ten years as a victim of mental manipulation, emotional abuse and an instance of sexual assault at the hands of Dr. Luke.”

Geragos adds, “The facts presented in our lawsuit paint a picture of a man who is controlling and willing to commit horrible acts of abuse in an attempt to intimidate an impressionable, talented, young female artist into submission for his personal gain. Kesha is focused on moving her life and her career beyond this terrible time.”

Dr. Luke is suing her right back, claiming the whole thing is a ploy to get out of her recording contract and go in a new direction with her music.  Continue reading “Dr. Luke and Ke$ha are Suing Each Other”

Ke$ha is in Rehab, But Not For Drugs or Alcohol

Kesha bodySo I know I’ve said all kinds of slightly disrespectful things about Ke$ha before, but I actually think she’s a really underrated pop songwriter of tunes catchier than all the crabs in the pants’ section of the used clothing store.

Back to the “news” part. Turns out, Ke$ha is taking a little break from everything and heading to a rehab facility in Chicago for the neither pills nor booze nor cocaine that you would expect from someone whose motto seems to involve nothing but playing hard.

“I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I’ve found it hard to practice,” Ke$ha said in a statement to Celebuzz.  “I’ll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder… to learn to love myself again, exactly as I am.”

Ke$ha Gyrates Lazily in ‘Dirty Love’ Video

Kesha dirty love stillIn a brand new video for “Dirty Love,” everybody’s favorite crusty party girl flashes skin on a stripper stage like a lazy Taylor Momsen or super energized Britney Spears.

In true Ke$ha fashion, she humps the air, covers her face to contain demonic laughter, slurps whip cream cans and balances her drunk self on a chain link fence.

For some reason, Iggy Pop’s random verse about Rick Santorum in a v-neck sweater that was included on her Warrior CD is missing. You know it’s a bad sign when the scraggliest heroin addict in town regrets working with you.

Her vagina is a glitter piñata and her body is 72% vodka. Raise a toast with your tuna martinis (tunatinis?) and try to avoid a fish hangover upon pressing the play button. Continue reading “Ke$ha Gyrates Lazily in ‘Dirty Love’ Video”

Funny Video: Mean Tweets, Music Edition

In the latest edition of celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves, Ke$ha is a crack whore, Pharrell looks like a sewer rat, 2 Chainz is Whoopi Goldberg and Lil’ Wayne is a crabapple. Awesome.

Also, Jared Leto totally licked his lips a little when he read the word “dick.”

Video: Bonnie McKee – “American Girl”

To promote her new single, Bonnie McKee played a little game called “How many recognizable celebrity faces can I shove into one four minute video.” The answer? …A lot.

I spy Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Adam Lambert and Carly Rae Jepsen – all artists McKee, an accomplished songwriting machine (“Hold It Against Me,” “Dynamite,” California Gurls” etc.) has worked with in the past.

But what are Kathy Griffin, Jenny McCarthy, Kiss and Tommy Lee doing here? (Of course they’re all available! “American Girl” is half starpower, half highlights from an unaired season of The Surreal Life.)

Respect Ke$ha’s Urine and She’ll Maybe, Possibly Not Bite You

Kesha gold toothKe$ha is known for being wonderfully dirty. Only slightly less wonderful is the fact that she talks about being dirty ALL THE TIME. From necklaces made of teeth, to beard fingering and touching ghosts in the dark, she’s a very imaginative lady.

On the MTV reality show My Crazy Beautiful Life, the result of her brother and his “weird friend” following her around with a camera, we get to see her drinking pee. Her own pee. That makes it better, right?

“I was told drinking my own pee was good, I was trying to be healthy,” Ke$ha told BBC Radio 1. “Somebody tried to take my pee away from me and I said, ‘That is mine!’ So I snatched it up and took a chug and it was really gross, so I don’t do it anymore.”

What To Expect From Ke$ha’s Reality Show

Kesha my crazy beautiful life promoI have a bad feeling about the Ke$ha reality show MTV just okayed.

Maybe it won’t live up to its full potential, like Snakes on a Plane. Maybe it’ll die after two seasons the way The Ashlee Simpson show did.

What if it isn’t about Ke$ha drinking her own puke out of an iron lung??

So what will My Crazy Beautiful Life (also the name of her book), which debuts in April, actually be about? Ke$ha says it will reveal a “more complete picture” of her life, which is “real” and “not at all glamorous.”  Continue reading “What To Expect From Ke$ha’s Reality Show”

Video: Ke$ha – “C’mon”

In the video for “C’mon,” Ke$ha is a lollipop-licking, pigtail-having magician moonlighting as a waitress who doesn’t give people coffee because she’s too pissed off about her boss sexually harassing her.

Apparently Ke$ha’s type = guys with beards, AND furries (read more about that HERE), as well.

Ke$ha Snubs ‘Die Young,’ Says She Was Forced (But Not At Gunpoint) To Sing The Lyrics

Ke$ha gunKe$ha once called her greasy sophomore album, Warrior, “really positive, really raw, really vulnerable and about the magic of life,” and said that she rewrote the lead single “ten times” before deciding on the current version.

Now she’s singing a different auto-tune, denouncing “Die Young” after hearing that it had been pulled from radio stations because the lyrics could be considered insensitive to the families of the 6 and 7 year-olds lost in Newtown, Connecticut.

“I understand. 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,” Ke$ha tweetedContinue reading “Ke$ha Snubs ‘Die Young,’ Says She Was Forced (But Not At Gunpoint) To Sing The Lyrics”

DJ Earworm’s Mash-Up of Every Pop Song You Remember From 2012

faces of pop 2012San Francisco mash-up king DJ Earworm (Jordan Roseman) releases a master mix of all the radio-friendly songs of the year in December, and 2012’s is here, ripe with van Gogh-worthy tracks from Adele, One Direction, Ke$ha, Carly Rae Jepsen, Rihanna, PSY and more.

This one’s called “Shine Brighter” and it’s bound to get actual airplay, and a video complete with clips from every artist on Earworm’s YouTube channel shortly.

Poll: which song do you hate the least? I’m going with Bruno Mars’ “Locked out of Heaven,” mostly because it’s not as old as the others and therefore less overplayed.

(I don’t quite get why “Titanium” is absent? It was released Dec. 9, 2011, but Adele’s “Set Fire To The Rain” is from Nov. 2011 and was included. Poor Sia.) Continue reading “DJ Earworm’s Mash-Up of Every Pop Song You Remember From 2012”

Ke$ha Gets Rocky For ‘Dirty Love’ Feat. Iggy Pop

Kesha Iggy Pop dirty LoveKe$ha‘s Warrior is out and the track “Dirty Love,” which you know has Iggy Pop because she announces “It’s Iggy Pop” in the beginning, is pretty good if you can get past it being the oddest pairings since Johnny Depp and Ke$ha.

In this song we learn many important lessons about filth and champagne and what happens when a lioness (I always want to call her “Keha” because the dollar sign gets lost in URL translation) meets a hairless cat.

Iggy’s verse: Cockroaches do it in the garbage cans/rug merchants do it in Afghanistan/Santorun did it in a V-neck sweater/pornos produce it/but a wild child can do it better.  Continue reading “Ke$ha Gets Rocky For ‘Dirty Love’ Feat. Iggy Pop”

Wench Ke$ha Performs Tom Petty Song With Pirate Johnny Depp

That apocalypse thing the Mayans predicted is a go. Unicorn vomit princess Ke$ha teamed up with Keith Richards’ adopted son Johnny Depp for at the first ever Los Angeles Petty Fest.

Depp humped the guitar while Ke$ha quietly approached the mic for a performance of Tom Petty’s “Mary Jane’s Last Dance.” They were joined by Black Keys’ beatkeeper Patrick Carney and a bunch of other people of no importance.

You may think this is an unlikely pairing, but these two have more in common than you think.

Video: Ke$ha – “Die Young”

I just realized that I’ve never really seen Ke$ha dance before now. I’ve seen her fall down and dance her way back up, Hilton Gangbang Style in “Tik Tok,” but never a full routine.

And “Die Young” (which I legit love) has that! A Ke$ha dance routine. She’s probably done it before, but my mind is pretty swissy right now/always, so forgive me.  Continue reading “Video: Ke$ha – “Die Young””

Ke$ha Has ‘Sexy’ Experiences With The Dead

Ke$ha isn’t exactly the Emily Post of pop music. She’s famous for songs about glitter and glory holes, turned into a cartoon mermaid in the video for “Your Love Is My Drug” and has a website called “Put Your Beard In My Mouth.”

The latest whiskey-flavored Ke$ha news kiblet relates to  a song off her second full-length album Warrior, due in November.

“I also have this song called ‘Supernatural.’ It’s about experiences with the supernatural…but in a sexy way. Well, I don’t know his name! He was a ghost. It was just like… I had a couple experiences with the supernatural. I’m very open to it.” she told Ryan Seacrest.  Continue reading “Ke$ha Has ‘Sexy’ Experiences With The Dead”

Whose Fans Have The Best Nickname?

Sometimes a fan is just a fan and other times, they’re, well, some god-awful name they were given or that they gave themselves.

It’s all the same kind of cancer.

Well, put your paws up, but not those paws. I’ve decided that Ke$ha‘s “Animals” win this game, but only because it’s the most fitting and least horrible name to say outloud

Worst has to be Courtney Stodden (Stoddenistas) for even thinking she’s cool enough to name her fans, and Chris Brown for having fans at all, especially female ones. That kind of stupidity deserves a rural county fair cow ribbon.

Let’s review all the options, and I’ll let you decide (comment below)  Continue reading “Whose Fans Have The Best Nickname?”
