Kesha is and American singer-songwriter whose big break came from an uncredited and unpaid cameo on rapper Flo Rida's 2009 No.1 hit "Right Round". At 17, Kesha left high school to pursue a music career. She changed her name to Ke$ha and moved to Los Angeles to work with producer Dr. Luke, who had worked on hit singles for Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson among others. "I thought her voice was distinctive, and I fell in love with her personality," Dr. Luke explained to Entertainment Weekly. "She had the same sass and irreverence she has now." Ke$ha was determined to break into the business. According to one story, she paid off a gardener to get inside music legend Prince's house to leave one of her demos for him. She landed a few gigs as a back-up vocalist as well, performing on songs by Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. But her big break came from an uncredited and unpaid cameo on rapper Flo Rida's 2009 No.1 hit "Right Round." She told Allure magazine that she wasn't upset about not receiving any payment for the song. "You have to pay your dues," she explained. Soon after her work with Flo Rida, Ke$ha landed a record contact with RCA. She released her first single, "Tik Tok," later that year. The party anthem developed quite a following, soon becoming one of the most downloaded songs in America, and then reaching the top of the Billboard pop charts in January 2010.For Ke$ha, her life provides much of the inspiration for her songs. "I'll go out with my friends and get rowdy . . . I'm not sorry, and I will write about it." Her debut album, "Animal",went straight to number 1 on the Billboard chart as soon as it was released. Soon after the January release of "Animal", Kesha released a new EP "Cannibal", featuring the hit songs "We R Who We R", "Cannibal", "Sleazy" and "Blow". Kesha announced that she will release her second studio album "Warrior" on December 4, 2012. The lead single from the album is "Die Young".
Kesha considers herself a songwriter before anything else. She wrote the songs on her albums and has written tracks for Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus. She cited Led Zeppelin, Queen, Madonna, Aaron Neville, Bob Dylan and Blondie as her influences. Kesha is known for her love of animals; she was named Humane Society's first global ambassador for animal's rights. Rock legend Alice Cooper was so impressed with Kesha that he asked her to write songs for him and collaborate on the track "What Baby Wants" featured on his album "Welcome 2 My Nighmare".
Well Kesha... you call yourself,i suppose... "the wild girl"... But an advice for all who like becoming an "Animal"... don't take it to seriously or else you'll lose your human character...also,"your fans"... that just a litter advice... :)
