Well ok Kesha, maybe it’s because you’re an auto tuned peice of shit who shouldn’t be famous, you have no Buisness being in the music industry, it’s not even your music you fuck, someone else wrote it for you to record and them to auto tune yourself. And it’s not at all good . It’s not positive either. So complain some more.
I don’t know if you know this, tumblr user koolkidseatgreens, but Ke$ha is a certified genius. She has an IQ over 140 and an SAT score of 1500. When she was younger she would go to the library and do research for fun. Ke$ha is a both feminist and an advocate for equal marriage/rights for people of any sexuality, being a queer woman herself.
Ke$ha is a smart, professional woman, and just because she sings songs about wanting to let loose and have fun every once in a while doesn’t make her a piece of shit.
Ke$ha’s songs are meant to point out the sexism in our media. She treats men the same way many men in the music industry treat women, and she is hated on for it. Relentlessly. She sings on multiple occasions about taking charge in a sexual relationship, of how she only uses men for their body parts. She sexualizes men to make them uncomfortable. She sexualizes men for a reaction, so that people can both see why women are so uncomfortable with their sexualization and also to point out the inequality between the sexes both in the media and in the world at large.
She is judged so harshly for singing about things that make many men famous.
If you listen to Ke$ha’s deconstructed album you will see that she actually has some talent, which may be hard to hear because she does in fact use a fair amount of autotune. This is because of her genre and because of the kind of music she chooses to create as an artist. Ke$ha may not write her songs, but this doesn’t meant she isn’t a good artist or a good person. This doesn’t mean she deserves your harsh words. Some singers are good at writing, but that’s hardly a requirement. Last time I checked whether or not you can sing has nothing to do with whether or not you’re a poet.
You should not be calling anyone a piece of shit, my friend, especially someone you’ve never sat down and had a conversation (or even taken the time to wonder about her feelings!), but if anyone deserves that kind of language it’s not Ke$ha.
You may think that by shaming women for expressing their sexuality and having fun every once in a while, that you are somehow abolishing sexism. That in weeding out the less ‘deserving’ women you are gaining our sex more respect. This is not the case, and the fact that you and many others feel such a strong need to shame this woman who has done nothing wrong, especially not to you, shows that we still have a very far away to go.
^ ALL OF THIS <3
I like Ke$ha. She seems like a good person to me and her music is fun to listen to and to dance to…
And seeing her so upset here…
Seriously, if people don’t want to listen to her music that’s totally fine, it’s not going to be for everyone…but being horrible to her as a person, when she’s not done ANYTHING wrong is just…UGH
Someone making music that you don’t like isn’t a good reason to make them feel like shit about themselves. Even if you think she’s a bad singer, she’s not a bad person…don’t buy her music if you don’t like it, certainly, but the level of hatred and venom that’s directed at her by some people is just ridiculous
A lot of the mockery of her songs is also pretty clearly rooted in misogyny, slut-shaming, sex negative bullshit and homophobia as well so yeah, I am forever side-eyeing a lot of the ways her music is made fun of
Not liking a song because you don’t think it sounds good is one thing, but there seems to be a lot of ‘OMG she’s such a dirty slut singing about these things, let’s laugh at her for that’ going on and I just roll my eyes at that kind of slut shaming crap to be honest
