  1. Ke$ha is a hack who can't sing. No wonder the American music scene is in such a hole. I call her Crap$ha.

  2. Well annoying is right.

  3. How is it a capella if they still had to auto-tune her voice afterward?

  4. One can only hope she follows her own advice, or at least album titles.

  6. The really sad thing is that no-talent females like Ke$ha and Britney are getting recording contracts and airplay while talented and openly gay/bisexual male singers don't get any. Women are allowed to have success without having any talent at all.

    The lesson from this is simple: if we in the gay community continue to support these women, we will end up enabling mediocrity, a mediocrity that harms us.

  7. Your whole shtick is tired, Jason. Try a new song.

  8. Mikey,

    I'm simply stating the facts. In the last 20 years, female pop singers have been allowed to get away with being total fakes. Don't deny it. Look at Britney. Britney mimed her songs to delirious audiences that included gay guys. How fake can you get?

    A male singer would NEVER be allowed to get away with this degree of fake, and certainly not a gay or bisexual male singer.

  9. Ke$ha is amazing. Love the trashiness and everything about her.

  10. JL,

    Trashy? It's fake, sweetie. She made a lot of money from tik tok and is now probably living in a very nice penthouse. Not trashy at all, darls.

  11. You can hate Ke$ha's lack of vocal talent all you want, but the b*tch writes incredibly catchy pop songs. Of course they're frivolous and trashy most of the time, but it's not something a hack or any non-talent can do. Otherwise, everybody would be doing it.

    I love my singer-songwriters who write lyrics with depth. But there's room for trash like Ke$ha, she keeps it fun and ridiculous.

  12. This article could have been condensed to simply "Ke$ha annoys". Brevity, yo.

  13. Wow... that is an etiquette miss. The faces and actions of the two people next to her in the subway car say everything about how she would be received there for her actions.

  14. Keep going, America......don't stop until the entire world hates you and the mindless trash-heap that is American pop culture, led, of course, by bitchy, trashy, whorey women......

  16. As someone who's been to Tokyo and knows cultural/subway etiquette over there, this is rude. It's not NYC, so don't act like it is.

    And I love how someone pointed out they Auto-Tuned her voice after the fact. Pathetic.

  17. My sympathies lie entirely with Tokyo's subway riders.

  18. She's a manufactured act. She has the right physical look. She's cheaper to produce than upfront real musicians. And why is it expected that gay men like this cr*p?

    And when as a society did we start glorifying in your face attention whores? It wasn't like this when I was a kid, and I'm not that old. Way too much pretentiousness today.

  19. She's simply horrible...

  20. Well here "career" died LONG AGO! and lets hope the new name of her album is a blessing.

  21. I can't actually believe i'm agreeing with Jason, but he's right: Ke$hit can't sing without the aid of Auto-Tune and her whole shtick is fake. If she's really a hard partying, vodka-puking skank, why isn't her antics all over TMZ and perezhilton like Lindsay and Britney's shenanigans were?

  22. Who thought THIS was a good idea, the Romney campaign?

  24. Jason/Rick (same person, different aliases) is here to spread its misogynistic BS. Ignore the trolls everyone.

    Posted by: MateoM | Sep 18, 2012 2:17:01 PM

  25. I normally don't agree with Jason, but he's absolutely right. Gay people need to quit supporting these no talent hacks like Kesh1t, Britney, Katy Perry, etc, and try supporting one of their own for once. Gay men never seem to give the same support to gay singers. Sad and pathetic. And as far as Kesh1t goes, her singing is AWFUL!
