Guilty Pleasures – Ke$ha

I think I’ve finally come around to appreciating Ke$ha.  Part of it has to do with this scene from Glee earlier this year.

God, Brittany’s awesome.

I’ve pretty much hated all of Ke$ha’s songs and her phony “sex and booze-crazed party girl” image is complete marketing garbage.  But I actually think there’s some singing talent there.  And, although the lyrics are completely vapid, she does write her own songs.  That’s gotta count for something.  I know what you’re thinking – “The Hedonist only likes her because’s she’s hot.”


You couldn’t be further from the truth.  She’s always worn outrageous costumes to try to be sexy, but it didn’t work because I always thought there was something mannish in her face.  All the wild clothes did was made me think she was some kind of white trash Gaga.  The proof of her ugliness is in pictures I came across of her on the beach in Australia.

I honestly think it's just the wrong suit for her. I think she'd look terrific in a burka. (

Speaking of the beach, I’m going to be on vacation next week and I guarantee I’ll look better than Ke$ha.  But because I care for all four of my readers, I’ve brought in a guest blogger.  Who else can do a Guilty Pleasure post than the Queen of Guilty Pleasures – Jules, author of  I have the post all ready to go and I can guarantee it doesn’t get any guiltier.

I’m guessing that this Ke$ha song is going to be heard a lot during New Years’ Eve celebrations.  This is probably as good a time as any to remind you to be safe and drink responsibly – because you don’t want to go home with someone who looks like Ke$ha.  Here’s the video –

I don't know everything about the world of food and wine, but I'm not going to let a small detail like that stop me from blogging about it.

    I am so confused by that bikini picture! It looks like it was photoshopped to make her middle look like a completely different person! Wow. Oh and the Glee clip is, of course, top-notch.

    Ke$ha is a perfect pick; I mean, just look how she $pell$ her name!

    That girl is so good. But I can’t watch that show because of Lea Michele. Blarg.

    there is no way to deny the catchiness of kesha’s songs. it helps that they require no vocal talent whatsoever, making them easy to sing along to
