Ke$ha: 'I Wouldn't Say I'm Gay or Straight'

Ke$ha: 'I Wouldn't Say I'm Gay or Straight'

Ke$ha opens up to Out in a new interview, speaking about her musical background, her sexuality and working with Katy Perry.

Here’s what the 22-year-old “TiK ToK” chart-topper had to share:

On her musical background: “My mom wrote country music, so I listened to a lot of country, and my brother listened to punk, so he gave me Fugazi records. To rebel, I started listening to dance!”

On her sexuality: I like people. I wouldn’t say I’m gay or straight – I don’t like labeling things anyway. I just like people.

On appearing in the “I Kissed A Girl” video: “I had no idea it was going to be such a massive hit!”

    @chelsey: Because LABELS are what make people so judgmental. Sure, they may be useful but in a world with so many close minded & ignorant people, it’s like that’s all they see in someone. You should like people for who they are, not what they are. And a FACT that is hidden within homophobia, is that nobody is 100% straight nor 100% gay. Therefore everybody actually is somewhat bisexual. Don’t believe me? Well all I can say is it’s time to open your mind.

    you are perfect critizing: sayng she is ugly-she cant sing-she is steeling her identities. i ma sure every one who ci crytizing are only jeleous. cause she is famouse and u are not. all of you are ugly and do not how to sing. and abput her sexuality; any one of you nows really if she is sain it really or not. so stop feeling you are more important then you are!!!

    DwightHowardFan12 Says:

    I actually enjoy her music (although I hear she’s horrible live!)… I think she’s different and brings a nice edge to some of the music that has started to all sound the same! I do think it’s funny she was even mentioned about being in the Katy Perry video cuz she’s one of the minor people in there…. there are several girls who were shown WAY more than her… infact, I had to watch it twice to even see what part was hers… but that ratty hair of hers is way obvious in the vid! I like Katy Perry much better than Kesha though… SHE is amazing and SO different!! :)

    Shay Says:

    Ke$ha is an amazing person. Nobody cares if you post hating comments about her, because we know you just post it because either you want attention or your friends hate her but you secretly love her. So whatever. Besides, if you DON’T like her, why click on this damned thing unless you want attention, or just want to put her down? And, once again, besides, she doesn’t care. It’s not like she’s going to read them, because she’s not going to go out looking for them. She’s an amazing person, and if you can’t see that, sorry for you.
    BTW, hope she’s bi, too, cuz she’s, once again, amazing!

    hollaaa Says:

    first of all whoever made this website chose a really bad picture of her, kesha is beautiful. and she’s not saying she doesnt like labels for attention. shes being honest. most people who are bi don’t like labels because otherwise everyone says we’re “confused” .. as she says, we are who we are. get over it people.

    monica Says:

    everybody needs to quit hating on kesha just let her be herself for crying out loud if shes gay shes gay oh well just get over it. i love kesha so people need to get a life and leave kesha alone. I LOVE YOU KESHA!!!
