Party animal Ke$ha graces the cover of ‘VIBE’ magazine’s October/November 2012 issue with elegantly flowing platinum blonde locks in a black lace dress. Posing for fashion photographer Sarah McColgan, she heats things up in her spread while dishing on her music, rapping, shopping and more.
FYI: Congratulations are in order because Ke$ha is the first white chick to ever grace the cover of ‘VIBE!’ Keep on taking over kid!
Here’s what Ke$ha had to say:
On shopping: “I’m not frivolous, I never go shopping. And I love cheap costume jewelry. An underlying theme [of my first album, Animal] was how you can be broke and still have fun. Money doesn’t determine whether I’m happy. But it’s really fun to get light-up shoes.”
On her controversial lyrics: “The first record was a celebration of partying and being young, but this record’s a better look at my personality. Whatever, I drink like a champion. But I can also do other stuff. I have a sense of humor about my lyrics. I’m not a train wreck, I’m just having fun.”
On being perceived as a rapper: “The first time someone called me a rapper, I started laughing. I was shocked, and thought it was hilarious. But then, Andre 3000 was telling me how he thinks I’m a good rapper. And Wiz, who’s a good friend of mine, thinks I’m a good rapper? Snoop? It’s crazy and funny to me.”
On her soul-searching journey: “I went swimming with whales in the middle of nowhere, it was like naked boat ladies swimming with baby whales for a week. Then I was rehabilitating baby lions who were like p—ing in my tent, and I was feeding them with a bottle, because their parents orphaned them and they’re trying to rehabilitate these other lions that were kept in captivity.”
On requests from her fans: “It can’t be said enough: be yourself, love each other. I’ve had to deal with scrutiny [in Nashville] that probably isn’t even comparable to the kind of scrutiny people from a place like that face being gay or lesbian. A lot of my fans struggle with that, and it breaks my heart that people haven’t found out how to be nice to each other.”
On ‘Warrior’: “The first record was a celebration of partying and being young, but this record’s a better look at my personality. Whatever, I drink like a champion. But I can also do other stuff. I have a sense of humor about my lyrics. I’m not a train wreck, I’m just having fun.”
