Pop singer, Ke$ha covers The Americana Issue of V magazine. In the current issue of V Magazine, Ke$ha talks about feeling like she’s the dirty little sister to other pop stars. More after the heartbeat.
“I do feel like there are the pop stars of the world and then I’m like their dirty little sister, running around with shit on my face in combat boots because I can’t walk in heels.”
Ke$ha, whom was raised by her mother, a songwriter, reminisces about the time she tried to used her mother’s name to score meets with industry insiders, but was rejected because she didn’t have a record deal.
“I met with this one big writer and he thought he was hot shit,” she says dismissively. “He had me driving all over town—and I didn’t have gas money. The last time I met up with him, he said, ‘I have a great song title, but you can’t have it because you’re not signed.’ Then he asked me to leave his house. It was such a weird, twisted thing for a grown man to do to a young, desperate artist! It made me want to get successful to show that whether or not people recognize the power that is in you yet, it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. It’s not even about signing with a big label. With the Internet, the entire music business is changing. If anyone tries to tell you that you can’t do what you want to, I think you should give them the finger and do it anyway.”
