She's been busy putting together her second studio album ahead of its expected May release date, but Ke$ha made a little time to partake in a feature for the March 2012 issue of Glamour.
The "We R Who We R" hitmaker got a make-under for her mini photo shoot while talking with the magazine about everything from succeeding as a female rock-star to her future in the music industry.
Highlights from Ke$ha's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Glamour!
On succeeding as a female rock-star:
“I know that I have balls. I have bigger balls than a lot of the men that I meet. I’m just a ballsy motherf—ker. I’m not afraid of pushing boundaries. That’s what you have to do to become an icon.”
On her onstage and real life humor:
“I’m just very amused by five-year-old humor. Don’t get me wrong: I do destroy men on a weekly basis. It’s like a hobby. I’m like a praying mantis. They f—k me, and then I eat them. But who isn’t amused by a giant, dancing penis? Sometimes when I’m sad, I make my assistant put on the penis outfit and bounce around my house.”
On her love of body-paint:
“Oh, the body paint stays. It’s my favorite thing to do. Sometimes I have parties at my house in Nashville and it’s clothing-optional, and we just body-paint each other and run around, and I have a giant bed. I’m very much in touch with that side of myself.”
On getting photographed without makeup:
“My makeup is usually left over from the night before. I’m not really worried about the photographs because if I tell my fans not to give a f—k about the haters, then I have to practice what I preach. I embrace the imperfections and celebrate them.”
On her future in the music industry:
“Eventually, I would love to be on my deathbed and looked at as an icon. Right now I’m still at the baby stages of my career. But that is the goal.”
