Biography

If there’s one thing Ke$ha knows how to do, it’s tell stories. Here’s a pretty good one: Two years ago, the aspiring pop singer and songwriter decided she wanted Prince to produce her first album. So, she found out his address and drove to his Beverly Hills home, where she paid the gardener five dollars to let her squeeze herself under his front gate. Then she hiked up the ...

2010 debut album from the American singer/songwriter who achieved fame as featured vocalist on Flo Rida's hit single 'Right Round'. Animal was executive produced by Dr. Luke (Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, and Avril Lavigne) and includes collaborations with producers Max Martin and Benny Blanco. The album's first smash single, 'TiK ToK', has had TV placements in the Project Runway promo spots, Melrose Place and So You Think Can Dance.

Format:Audio CD
Ke$ha, `the girl' from Flo Rida's "Right Round," releases an album of her own in early 2010 very similar in theme to that of Lene Alexandra's, for those who are familiar with her. It's an album which exudes a crystal clear persona and message through its lyrics and the performer behind them, and what it exudes is guaranteed to garner a plethora of negative critical response, scowls and gasps of shock from critics and parents alike. Briefly after its release, `Animal' is already boasting a #1 lead single (the most downloaded single of the year, in fact), a so-far-unreleased album cut ("Blah Blah Blah") shooting to #2 on the iTunes Top Charts and a #1 spot on the iTunes Top Albums Charts (which will inevitably lead to a #1 spot on Billboard); with all this, however, came an overload of predominantly negative critic reviews. So in essence, what we'd assume to have on our hands here is a musical version of Transformers 2. Unlike Transformers 2, however, Ke$ha's album is in fact fun and enjoyable, albeit vapid and free of substance.

The persona so many critics (and likely flabbergasted adults) are appalled with is the promiscuous, binge drinking partier Ke$ha plays on a large majority of her debut. Virtually every track brings mention of guzzling booze, screwing boys, and/or partying `til you projectile vomit. The recurring theme Ke$ha ultimately seems to be trying to push here is role reversal, essentially making a point to exude the stereotypically male attitude and mindset throughout her songs. `Just turn around boy, let me hit that, don't be a little b*tch with your chit-chat, just show me where your d*ck's at' she orders on one track, while another finds her repeatedly calling a male ex-lover a slut.

3.0 out of 5 stars Download a few, skip the rest. January 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD
There was a time, you may recall, when pop music and dance music were two separate things; when it didn't pander to the lowest common denominator; when pop stars were actually artists and not just fashion models with voices. Not today, though. Today it seems as if the mainstream music, money-making machine chooses style over substance almost always. Ke$ha is no exception to this trend. Her music, while containing a few catchy songs (such as the suddenly everywhere, "TiK ToK"), doesn't really bring anything new or exciting to the music world. As such, Animal, is definitely not an album to purchase as a whole, but one to pick apart and download; again, a trend that has only grown more prevalent over time.

Around a month ago, I'm spending time with friends when one girl starts playing "TiK ToK." I immediately dismiss it as crap, not to mention a stylistic rip-off of Paris-based, Uffie (granted, not an Owl City-Postal Service sized rip-off, but enough for me to notice). A week later, I'm severely inebriated at The Beach, a club on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, when the song once again starts playing. Without me even knowing, the song hooked me; so much so that a few days later I'm downloading the song on iTunes and declaring it the best mainstream female pop song since Britney Spears' "Toxic." What "TiK ToK" has going for it is its amazing production, an infectious chorus, well-written melody, and enough edge to make it sound fresh. It is a great cog in the machine, and according to the end of '09's pop charts, I'm not alone in this assessment.

Unfortunately, the large majority of Animal plays things by the book. Sounding more Rihanna than Gaga, Ke$ha's debut is full of a lot of tracks that mimic every other pop song from the last 5 years.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tried my hardest but to no avail. January 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I've been flip flopping with this girl for a good few weeks now. Hated her at first and then tried out her album. Didn't care for it on the first couple of initial listen and trashed it afterwards. Because someone then convinced me to give it another try, I did so and that time, it grew on me more than expected. Because I like to support the artists, I went out and bought it.

I'm regretting this purchase now. Why? Because I'm already bored and sick of it and I've only had it for a few days. The problem with Ke$ha's music is that it's possible for it to be catchy for exactly 5 seconds before you're already wanting to throw it away. I'll admit that I was silly to even spend $10 on it in the first place, especially since I was still somewhat hesitant about her. So that's money wasted but what can you do? All I know is that this chick isn't going to be as big as her 'stans' like to make everyone think. She may be at the top of the charts now but the negative reviews (from people who have bought the album, NOT 'professional' reviewers) rise each day so I doubt she's going to be there long. Keep in mind that a number one song doesn't mean you'll be here next year.

Also, comparing her to Gaga doesn't work either strictly because even though Gaga too has songs that talk about partying and whatnot, she's not as completely trashy and BLUNT about it to where you're cringing when you listen to her. There is a little thing called metaphors I strongly insist that Ke$ha looks up. You can get your point across without literally shoving it into the person's face and being as nasty as possible. It doesn't make you look 'edgy' or 'cool' like she apparently thinks it does.

I don't see this girl being around very long and if she does? She'll be just like the hundreds of two bit pop stars who keep trying to be relevant. I'm sure that she's a nice girl but not nice enough for me to subject myself to this.
