Ke$ha Covers Billboard Magazine

Ke$ha Covers Billboard Magazine

Ke$ha makes it pop on the February 27 cover of Billboard magazine. And deservingly so! She has the longest-running No. 1 debut single by a female artist on the Billboard Hot 100 since 1977, as “TiK ToK” holds the spot for a ninth week.

During the Grammys, K$ went backstage and ran into Ringo Starr, who congratulated her on her success.

“He congratulated me?” Ke$ha asks incredulously. “Ringo Starr? Congratulations to me? It was more like, ‘Congratulations to you for being a f—ing Beatle.’”

Read K$‘s full cover story on!

    i’m not knocking her because she’s a nice girl but how that song made it so many weeks at #1 and gaga’s bad romance didn’t even make it to #1 is beyond me!

    @1: It’s a timing thing. I think if Lady Gaga had waited just a little bit to release “Bad Romance” for download, it would have hit number one, I believe. But even that doesn’t explain why that “Tik Tok” song is *still* number one. I mean, really? All the long running number one songs aren’t that great anymore. I mean “Boom Boom Pow,” “I Gotta Feeling” and “Tik Tok” have all had lengthy runs at number one…but they’re really not great songs.

    Basically, if you want a Hit, release bad but catchy music. And make sure you have a bad live singing voice too.

    It’s like people aren’t even trying anymore.

    Her album isn’t selling that well. I wonder how you can have a huge #1 hit but low album sales.

    I love her album. It’s pure yummy fun.

    Kill me, but I think she’s the only poptart on the table who is quite honest. I just don’t see her as a full of shi.t like Stefani Germanotta – who is super talented yet also super fake and pretentious and conceited and fame-affected. Gaga fans need to get over the fact that Kesha beat their queen out on the top spot. LET IT GO.

    Her album is called Animal because we are all animals, we just don’t want to admit that. I can’t hate on someone who knows what we really are. She knows something that most smart as.s people haven’t even figured out yet.

    Ke$ha touches a nerve with those unaccustomed to hearing a woman upend convention. If she were a dude no one would think out bashing her attitude.

    Imma Bad Ass Tomboy Bytch! Says:

    What is so bad about being a tomboy? I really don’t get that…. acting like a guy is fun… but you still don’t have a member so of course your a girl. She’s not les so back the hell up and let her live.
    I don’t like GaGa the person but I LOVE the music. People just don’t like the fact that a bad ass like Ke$ha can beat the Queen GaGa. Well she did… big whoop. GET OVER IT LIKE SERIOUSLY! Whiny azz people need a life.

    jaykay. Says:

    lollll. ke$ha is alright, the music is catchy and a good laugh (which is the point, i guess) but beyond that she’s just the current fad. this years katy perry, launching with a huge debut single…but it can only be downhill from here, maybe one or two catchy follow ups but beyond that, who knows?

    it also makes me laugh that people have the nerve to find ke$ha’s persona genuine whilst gaga’s fake. her ‘oh i’m sooo rebellious’ act will get very old VERY quickly, the supposed hardcore party girl attitude is not redeeming. it’s faker than katy perry’s bi-curious front.

    gaga can spout out pretentious BS, but you know fine well that she is talented and in a different league from her pop star peers. she gets away with it because although she may be odd, she churns out excellent pop songs, videos and performances.

    plus, on the ‘bad romance’ vs. ‘tik tok’ thing…who cares? ‘bad romance’ had more international success that ‘tik tok’ did, in the UK for instance it didn’t get to number one whilst ‘bad romance’ reached the top on two different occasions. the US release had poor timing. everyone knows the song regardless.
