On exercise: “I need to go on a walk every day, like a dog.”
On her personal hygiene and conduct: “I’m pretty sure in my past life I was a dude, because I talk like a dude and act like a dude… My mom always taught me to be tough.”
On her favorite vacation spot: “I like to go to the jungle at least once a year, get away from human beings and not use my people voice, just my animal voice… I know it sounds crazy, but I like connecting with the Earth on a real level.”
On her favorite album of all time, Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline: “I can put that on no matter where I am in the world and instantly feel OK… His music tells me to do what I do, to be myself and not pay attention to the other bulls$@*.”
On meeting Ringo Starr at the Grammys: “I met him at the Grammys, and he congratulated me on my album! I threw up in my mouth a little bit. I said, ‘Congratulations on being a f@#%in’ Beatle!”
On her widely criticized Saturday Night Live performance: “I was happy with the way it turned out… F@#* cynicism. F@#* the cynics. They can say whatever they want, because I’ll be the one in the corner with my laser gloves having a dance party.”
Whether you would want to attend such a dance party is, of course, up to you. Read all about Ke$ha’s rise in the new Rolling Stone, on sale now.
