Ke$ha: 'I Deserve More Respect'

Pop sensation KE$HA wants "a little more respect" from her music industry peers - because she's sick of her "party girl" label.
The TiK ToK hitmaker fears she has become more well known for her active social life than for her music, but she's determined to be taken seriously - insisting her success is down to hard work.
She tells Britain's Sunday Times newspaper, "So many people say, 'So, what, are you a party girl?' And I say, 'I'm a walking good time.' Do I sometimes go out and drink? Hell, yes. But could I have a number one song if I wasn't also working hard? Maybe that needs a little more respect.
"Also, the phrase 'party girl' implies someone who is out at a club, maybe doing some guy in the back who you've just met. Then you get in your car and you flash your vagina at the paparazzi. And I'm none of the above.
"I have been working on realising this dream, my path, my mission, for years. I've really invested a lot of thought, time and effort into it. The last thing that makes me is a victim. I think it's a bummer when people don't represent that properly, when they portray me as purely one-dimensional."
And Ke$ha is not ashamed of her pop style, insisting more music lovers should admit to liking mainstream songs.
She adds, "This is nothing to be embarrassed about. People like to have fun. And sure, there's my deepest, darkest hipster side that wants, for whatever pretentious reason, to hate pop music. But I'm just trying to give people a way to think, it's cool, you can not hate my record. You know - it's okay."
