Ke$ha Got Her Start Throwing Up in Paris Hilton's Closet


If you listen to Top 40 radio at all no doubt you've heard the new Ke$ha track "Tik Tok" on repeat over the holidays.

The NYT just anointed her the new face of white rap (I don't really get it), comparing her to Debbie Harry, though most draw comparisons to Lady Gaga, presumably because "Tik Tok" bears some resemblance to "Just Dance" in its rhythms.

What do you think of Ke$ha — here to stay or a flash in the pan? I'm not even gonna go near the Lady Gaga comparisons. However, Ke$ha does have a track about throwing up in Paris Hilton's closet, based on a true story:

"Pop sensation KE$HA wrecked her chances of becoming Paris Hilton's 'BFF' when she threw up in the socialite's closet.The Tik Tok hitmaker sang backing vocals on Hilton's album, Paris, and the two girls briefly became friends - but that ended when Ke$ha mistook the heiress' wardrobe for her bathroom. She recalls, 'We were all dancing, hanging out (and) I got overexcited and ralphed (threw up) in her closet. I thought it was a bathroom. That kind of ended the relationship right there. I wouldn't want to be my friend either."

And that kind of sold her for me.

Watch "Tik Tok", AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. most obnoxious song ever. singlehandedly lowers the bar for american songwriting. makes "i love college" look like faulkner.

  2. it *is* terribly catchy. but i once read about the song being summarized thusly: "Fell over drunk LOL" which is also true. fun enough tune, but i hope she is going to show us something else soon because: tiring.

  4. Yeah, that thing with the barfs will happen with too much coke drainage. Amateur.

  5. Debbie Harry? Lady Gaga? Really. She's more like the new Vanilla Ice. Not even.

  6. Comparing her to Debbie Harry is a joke. The fact that Paris Hilton considered her a friend speaks to her level of talent.

  7. Sidebar: Is mullethead trannydriver with the sweatband Simon Rex? That makes the video somewhat tolerable. I mean, if it is...

  11. Ke$ha is straight-up ripping off Uffie. Check it: both of these song were released in 2006.

  12. She is this generation's Betty Boo. Remember her? Thought not.

  13. Catchy disposable pop. Nothing more than that.

    And as for it being the "worst song ever"...puhLEEZE. That honor belongs to JLo's asinine, self-indulgent crapfest, "Louboutins."

  14. Sounds like the vocal step is Lets Dance and the music is the opening riff to Love At First Sight...or is it just me.

  15. I love seeing a one-hit wonder at the peak of their career!

  16. Again, all I can think of is Harry Allen's Unbearable Whiteness of Emceeing. I like the dollar sign she uses in her name... Class act.

  18. Nice Madonna ripoffs in her stupid video.

  19. I have to wonder if it gets exhausting for some of you to be so tragically hip all the time.

    Can't you just enjoy a song because it's fun, or does everything have to be the musical equivalent of Proust?

    Lighten up...

  20. Yeah, not even going to go near the Gaga comparison... I find this song so bad on so many levels, the substance of the lyrics to the ever repetitive pop hooks. I hope Ke$ha passes quickly into obscurity.

  21. It looks and sounds like she's having fun. Let her have her moment.

    Moments up, go away now you talentless bitch.

  23. I like the song but i think its going to be her only hit, and i really cant belive they compared her to Lady G.....noone is on GaGas level!

  24. Awful song - can't stand it. Can't wait for her 15 minutes to be over.
