The lame dollar sign in her name would seem to signify a boastful wealth, but Ke$ha usually looks like someone who just woke up from a vodka nap behind a nightclub Dumpster. If you believe her songs, that very well might be the case; her lyrics are unapologetic to the point of being confrontational regarding binge drinking, sexual promiscuity, and various other patterns of self-destructive behavior. If she has a goal beyond becoming as famous as humanly possible, it seems to be to claim a piece of the pop-music moral low ground that male rappers have largely dominated for the past couple of decades. It’s a fucked-up, race-to-the-bottom feminism, inarguably a net negative for society as a whole. The worst part? Two of her songs are kind of good.
