The Ke$ha Conundrum
By Andrew Wailes
Oh, Ke$ha. You've done it again. The drunken pop princess recently released her second music video for her new single "Blah Blah Blah (feat. 3OH!3)" and the title says it all.
Although our curiously entertaining, possibly bisexual pop star is relentlessly maintaining her grungy, party-girl image, she seems to have cleaned up a bit since her last video for debut single "Tik Tok." And yet she still manages to tarnish her image by texting things like "What a mega douche MASTER!!!!!!" and "TOOLBAG ALERT!!!!" in this new video. Also, in a recent interview with Billboard magazine, she claimed that she isn't a party-girl after all. "I don't do drugs, but I'm a walking good time and I talk kind of funny, so people think I'm messed up all the time. I'm not." This, coming from the same girl who told us all to brush our teeth with Jack Daniels? I'm confused. And yet her music is still stuck in my head. What's a boy to do?
In other music video news, Rihanna recently released a video for her new single "Rude Boy" and it's awesome! She seems to be going back to her Caribbean roots, giving the video an M.I.A.-esque, pop art feel. It's good to see RiRi moving in a different direction. "Russian Roulette" had me worried.
