Ke$ha Covers 'Self' Magazine July 2013

Ke$ha Covers 'Self' Magazine July 2013

Ke$ha jumps in the air on the cover of Self magazine’s July 2013, on newsstands now!

The 26-year-old entertainer opened up to the mag about how she keeps in shape, how she deals with haters, and more.

On how she keeps in shape: “I like to mix it up because I get bored easily. I bike, I swim and I love yoga. I also love rock climbing, which I’ve done since I was 16. It’s meditative and great for toning your arms and back. I love to run, too. On tour, I usually get offstage around 11 P.M. with the most intense adrenaline rush, so I put my hood on-nobody ever recognizes me-hit the streets and run until I get exhausted. It’s nice to get to actually experience the world and exercise at the same time.”

On finding the courage to break the rules: “I’m a white girl from Nashville who-kind of-raps. It’s weird, but I’ve always believed I was put here to do what I’m doing. I’ve had to endure so many people telling me, ‘No, you can’t do that,’ ‘No, you’re not pretty enough,’ ‘No, you’re not skinny enough,’ and I just had to be like, ‘You’re not stopping me. Get out of my way.’ Some of that comes from my mom, but I also think I was born with balls.”

On how she deals with haters: “The most important thing I’ve done is learn to laugh at myself, and I try to do that with any negativity coming at me, too. It’s hilarious how mean some people get about my silly pop songs.”

    She is such a joke, what is she selling? How we should all go out and have tons of work done in the form of plastic surgery, etc., in order to be good with ourselves? She still looks like a skank.

  • Brendon

    I’m so sick of her telling us how hard it is for her to make it when she gets played on the radio non stop with her autotoned garbage and gets all these gigs even tho her music isn’t selling, she must know what the bedding of all the bigwigs looks like I bet.

  • pika

    it truly is sad that she is perceived as a joke because of how her company have presented her. she can actually sing and i didnt think this until recently when i heard her real singing voice. i dont know why she continues making a fool of herself.

  • Daw Johnson

    I like Ke$ha, and I don’t think she’s as bad-looking as some say, but anyone who’s seen her beach pics knows she has no business being on the cover of a fitness-oriented magazine like “Self.”

    I mean her answer to this question “On how she keeps in shape” should be N/A, because she’s not in shape.

  • lucia

    I agree with @Daw Johnson. I mean Its obviously that these pictures are photoshopped!!. She is no like that in real life!

  • Nikki

    For the people saying Ke$ha isn’t in shape.. come on! She performs hours and hours every week while on tour, and then goes running after. That takes endurance! She may not be super thin, but she has dropped her extra weight and she looks awesome. Don’t hate. This girl kicks ass.

  • Animal

    She is in shape now…She really lost weight and you can see it on photos from her tour or from her twitter. She looks amazing and I wish that people stop hating her for no reason. I agree with Nikki, Ke$ha kicks ass!

  • Jake

    I don’t really get why people don’t like kesha, I mean yea she’s made some questionable decisions in her life but she is becoming more mature, and I beleive these pictures are real 100 percent. :)

  • GC

    @Jake: But who hasn’t made some questionable decisions in life when they were young. I think she’s far better behaved than most of her critics. And she has said that her trashy, drunk image is just a persona she created to make a point about double standards. That men can get away with things like drinking and sleeping around while women get condemned for it. It’s surprising that so many people aren’t clever enough to see that it’s an exaggeration and a parody. Do they really think that a girl who got accepted to Ivy League colleges, who has written and recorded hundreds of songs and plays multiple instruments, is a lazy, party crazed loser?

    And I’m sick of idiots bringing up autotune. She only uses it on some songs. This is a girl who was getting hired at 15 to sing demos and songs for TV shows. Do they think the songwriters who paid her to sing demos for them like Baby, It’s You and Suicide (Little Sad) would have hired someone who couldn’t sing when they could have just as easily hired someone who could? If you’re trying to get a song sold, you want the person singing your demo to do a good job. So, clearly she is talented and can sing. Her whole Deconstructed EP is autotune free as well.

    Sh actually has a lot of businesses being in self. She lost weight since those bad bikini pics. Cause she had an eating disorder and if you see her show she is always excersising. She is an example cause she embraces her body. Those pics were just unflattering due to that terrible bikini. She went on the beach a couple times since then and not a lot of People did stories on those cause they wanted to keep the hate going, but she looked great! She was in different suits. And she looks great thin and healthy now. So yes.
