Today*s Star: Ke$ha

Ke$ha's real name is Kesha Rose Sebert. She's a 26 year old sing-songwriter & rapper from Nashville. If you have ever watched Ke$ha's reality series on MTV, (My Crazy Beautiful Life) then you know she didn't have the easiest upbringing. Kesha says she was a diligent student who didn't fit in at her high school in TN. She played both trumpet and saxophone in her school's marching band, and started to take songwriting classes. Her mother Pebe (who was also a songwriter) worked with Kesha on writing songs.

When Kesha discovered her voice talent, she started sending demos out to her mother's friends. She has been active in the music biz since 2005, but it wasn't until 2009 that Kesha got her big break. She received mainstream recognition when she lending vocals to Flo Rida's song Right Round. Kesha turned down the offer to do the music video with Flo Rida simply because she said she wanted to make a name for herself on her own terms. Ke$ha is known for her eccentric attire and being a "bad girl" but really she is just being herself. Kesha says she always has been crafty and made accessories and clothing for herself and to this day wears her own.

Kesha has three albums out on iTunes: Animal, Cannibal and Warrior. She calls her fans "animals" because she loves that they just go crazy and enjoy themselves at her shows. Ke$ha says she's a big fan of living in the moment, more doing and less thinking. She certainly demonstrates those vibes during her performances!

Last March rapper Pibull joined Ke$ha on her Warrior Tour. Their song Timber instantly hit #1 on the charts! Do you like the song?
