Ke$ha Covers 'V' Magazine's Americana Issue
Here is what the 25-year-old singer had to share with the mag:
On comparing herself to pop stars: “I do feel like there are the pop stars of the world and then I’m like their dirty little sister, running around with shit on my face in combat boots because I can’t walk in heels.”
On connecting with her fans: “I try to include my fans in my message. I do feel like there is an element of what I’m doing that is about where I come from, which is working-class. I was never the cool kid, I was never hot in high school. I was never popular. You don’t have to be perfect and you don’t have to be rich and you can still be successful.”
On dealing with the paparazzi: “When paparazzi showed up at my house, it was really mind-boggling. I’ve found ways to do exactly what I want, but in the privacy of my own sanctuaries. I have wild, wild nights [in the woods], but my friends and I are all really private. We get f–king crazy, but you’re not going to see me stumbling out of nightclubs.”
Britney Spears on Ke$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.”
