Ke$ha: Too drunk or drunk enough to be important?
The Ke$ha we know says wild, ridiculous–sometimes disgusting–things in her songs and in interviews. Is she hot, young trash or is she important to our generation? Or both?
In his video “Ridiculous Lyrics!” YouTube darling Kev Jumba points out how popular music isn’t just laden with explicit lyrics–it’s laden with ridiculous lyrics that are more disgusting than farcical. “[It’s hard to find] one song that isn’t about partying, sex, alcohol or booty,” Kev says.
In her defence, Ke$ha has stated she doesn’t mean for people to take her lyrics seriously. Nor does she want to be a role model to eight year old girls. She has also remarked, “I think Jack Daniels is underrated as an antiseptic,” and, “Jack Daniels is an anti-bacterial and it’s way better than morning breath. Let me put it this way, if you wake up naked in a bathtub and you have the choice between rinsing out with Jack Daniels or trying to make out with some dude with morning breath, I would recommend picking up the Jack.” Ehem, speak for yourself, Ke$ha. I don’t make a point of waking up naked in bath tubs.
Which is to say, Ke$ha might be ALWAYS too inebriated to be taken seriously. You cannot even take that you shouldn’t take her lyrics seriously seriously.
I would also like to point out, coconut milk is anti-microbial and contains lauric acid, which combats against the AIDS virus. What this means is, piña coladas would (1) make for excellent toothpaste and (2) be a solid cautionary measure for after unprotected sex with a stranger.
For anyone who doesn’t believe Ke$ha regarding Jack’s antibacterial properties–her manager gave her a tattoo gun for Christmas. Yes, she has given tattoos the old-fashioned needle-sterlilised-in-whiskey-and-ink way.
Here’s some “kids” brushing their teeth with Jack:
Come to think of it, that’s the same reaction I give when I rinse my mouth with Listerine. Which contains alcohol. I’m not saying Ke$ha is sane, by the way. I’m saying she’s high, high like Oscar Wilde was on absinth at Cafe Royale, imagining himself surrounded by a field of tulips. In fact, the waiter was stacking chairs.

does anyone else see that kesha is funny? she’s so funny. all her songs are making fun of the party girls (like herself). like saying she’s hittin on dudes… hard. and brushing her teeth with a bottle of jack. and like the world is ours (ours our our ou ours). she’s just making fun of all the club crawlers, herself included, and it’s really funny
Whether she is trash or genius, Ke$ha is wild and certainly a (parody?) symbol of the current generation.
