Ke$ha: Billboard's Hot 100 Artist of the Year!

Ke$ha enjoys a champagne shower on the cover of Billboard‘s latest issue.

The 23-year-old pop star had reason to celebrate — she was named the magazine’s Hot 100 Artist of the Year, as well as Top New Artist!

“I pretty much feel like I’ve been reborn into this completely different existence. My entire life has become making music and playing shows, and I love it,” K$ tells Billboard about her whirlwind past year.

    WOW! This is a new low for music! I should have pursued a record deal, i mistakenly thought that I needed talent. I could have been raking in the money now!

    Unfortunately this is what Pop music has become. People that can’t sing worth **** with lots of auto-tune.

    She’s apparently only twenty three and she looks more like a prostitute in her mid-forties! Imagine how old she’s going to look in 10 years time. Ouch. Change your ways, girl, change your ways because you aint ageing well!

    I weep of what is the future of Pop music and the fact that she’s artist of the year saddens me more . Karen Carpenter and MJ should be turning over in their grave on what the genre they revolutionized has become. Madonna, Billie Joel hell anyone Mariah Justin Timberlake come back and take the reigns over this genre and bring it back to what it was. Also Christina and Beyonce need to become the talent that they were born with and stop trying to fit in with these cookie cutter non singing non talented artist.

    13 of 14 people (I’m not sure about #9, to be honest) that commented here strongly have to readjust their attitude on life. Because right now, they’re wasting their energy on hating somebody they wouldn’t have to worry one second about, if they just decided to invest their time and attention in reading articles about somebody they actually like instead.

    Strange people around here, indeed.

    @blah: Lol at calling her Flopsha after she’s been named hot 100 artist an best new artist of the year. I agree that she doesn’t look that great here but she’s a naturally pretty girl who doesn’t need to prove anything to losers.

    Stop saying the state of pop music is in distress if you don’t even have her album, it’s awesome. All you angry whiners should just get her album, trust me it will make you happy.

    Ke$ha is the face of POP music.
    If you’re bitching about her,
    You’re jealous.
    Of what?
    She’s living her life, chasing her dreams, and
    Living it.
    She’s a writer, and represents youth today.

    Listen to what ever artist is doing now,
    In POP music and you will see… Er, hear,
    Ke$ha paved the way of synth / fun / witty
    POP music! She rocks, and the sales,
    The fans,
    And the history she’s making
    Is proof.
    Proof to whom?
    Well to the people who matter.
    AKA not you in Kansas bored with your life
    Or you in California just jealous that someone
    Is doing something righht!
