Ke$ha Covers 'V' Magazine's Americana Issue

Ke$ha Covers 'V' Magazine's Americana Issue

Ke$ha shows off her patriotic side on the cover of V Magazine‘s Americana Issue.

Here is what the 25-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On comparing herself to pop stars: “I do feel like there are the pop stars of the world and then I’m like their dirty little sister, running around with shit on my face in combat boots because I can’t walk in heels.”

On connecting with her fans
: “I try to include my fans in my message. I do feel like there is an element of what I’m doing that is about where I come from, which is working-class. I was never the cool kid, I was never hot in high school. I was never popular. You don’t have to be perfect and you don’t have to be rich and you can still be successful.”

On dealing with the paparazzi: “When paparazzi showed up at my house, it was really mind-boggling. I’ve found ways to do exactly what I want, but in the privacy of my own sanctuaries. I have wild, wild nights [in the woods], but my friends and I are all really private. We get f–king crazy, but you’re not going to see me stumbling out of nightclubs.”

Britney Spears on Ke$ha: “[She] brings an incredibly carefree, fun-loving spirit to American pop music. I love listening to her songs when I’m on the treadmill. They help me power through my workout.”

    There she goes… Again!

  • miss infamous

    How and why is she still relevant?!

  • Laurel

    I know this is gonna be a mean thing to say, but if anyone looks at candids of Ke$ha and then looks at these pictures you can see the obvious difference. They’ve airbrushed like 10 lbs off of her.

  • ;}

    i like the concept but i cant with kesha

  • Accrehab

    I agree they photo-shop her to make her look thin.
    But those photos are really beautiful. I like the theme, how she posed etc. She is so fierce!

    and when she comes back to the industry, it’s the time for her to slain the airplay…. AGAIN.

  • Emma

    Hate to admit it, but she’s grown on me. I’d rather listen to someone singing about how poor and uncool they are than about how they’re making more money in one day than I make in a year. Besides, half the people who say they can’t stand her are the first ones out when her songs come on in the club :)

  • Happy_Evil_Dude

    And her last hit was when exactly?

  • the_boyfriend

    great shoot.

    here’s what she said about Brit:

    “To write a song for an icon, someone who stands for pop, it really doesn’t get better than that,” she says.

  • Kelly

    I can’t stand her “music”..

  • TheHungerButch

    I love Ke$ha, she’s cool and amazing
    And i wonder if Britney Spears sing-a-long to Blow like maniac like i did?
    And you bunch of haters?
    you gonna be the first one out to buy her album when she release it

  • Jess

    I feel like it’s all an act. She makes it look natural but it’s all calculated. I get that she doesn’t like to dress super glam like the other stars…she’s SO “anti-mainstream” that she wouldn’t wanna look like them, but what about her music? It’s incredibly poppy and commercial sounding , even if she throws in a few cuss words. Plus she has this “i’m cooler than thou” attitude. Such a hipster wannabe. Quit the talk and start making good music already. You can’t fool me.

  • Sean

    People who ‘hate’ Kesha don’t post on photoshoots of her… nice try!

    @Laurel: ‘

    Your point?
