We have to hand it to her - Ke$ha's really carving quite the niche for herself in the pop world!

The singer, who is performing this weekend at the Glastonbury Festival, recently opened up about being compared to other female artists, her amazing songwriting abilities, and of course, collaborating with Miz Britney Spears!

Here are some HIGHlights:

On being compared to other pop stars:

Y’know, I get it all the time. I get compared to everyone and their brother. I’m really not trying to be anyone else. I’m rapping when I wanna rap, I’m singing when I wanna sing, I’m screaming when I wanna scream. Compare me to whoever you want and comparing me to a successful, strong woman like Lady GaGa is a huge compliment but I do think I’m very different to anybody out right now. Everyone has their talent but I think what I bring is very different.

On writing for other artists, compared to writing for herself:

It’s very different. I enjoy it. I like being able to put my brain into other people’s brain. I’ve written for Miley Cyrus and Britney and a bunch of other people and it’s fun to change it up a bit. When I’m writing for myself it's really personal and very, very honest. When I’m writing for other people, I try to put myself in their shoes.

I have never written such an intimate song as The Harold Song so I’m really proud of that one. I always like to talk shit and have my bad ass front, but that song is very genuine and very honest and very vulnerable. I do like that song a lot. I think that's one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. Playing it live can be hard to sing because it’s so real.

On possibly touring with Britney:

"I really hope we can make it work. I know people who saw some early previews of Britney's show and said it was amazing - so I can't wait to go myself. If we’re ever in the same city at the same time then I’ll totally crash her tour!"

On her new album:

I’ve been writing as I’ve been touring and traveling the world and having all these crazy experiences! I’ve been writing a lot! I haven’t gone into the studio but all I know is that the next record is definitely going to have an extremely visceral attitude to do it.

Awesome!

Behind all of the glitter, sweat, and lord knows what else, we think there's quite the talent developing, and we're very CURIOUS to hear what she comes up with next!

Well done, gurl! You'd better RAWK Glastonbury!

And check out her other UK tour dates…AFTER THE JUMP!

    The pop world? Translated, the manufactured world of club music for the gays.

    Re: hoochpit – What the fuck does being GAY have to do with Kesha?? My fourteen year old sister love Kesha and she's not a fucking MUFF DIVING DYKE!! LOLZ!! Do me a favor, hoochpit, take that butt plug outta your asshole and WASH it!!

    She looks lovely with that white pasty fat oozing out of that thing she's wearing. As nice as that "bikini" picture. She has no class, at least she could pretend to have a little self-respect.

    Re: madonna is shit – I already replied to this but it looks like pig face perez deleted. Wheres Judas on the charts, hm? Then tell me where Till the World Ends is? Yeah, that's what I thought. FF leaked 2 weeks early, meaning she lost the first 2 weeks of sales pretty much. She lost hundreds of thousands of sales. But her singles prove that people still like her. Womanizer, Circus, 3, Hold It Against Me, Till the World Ends. All hits, and 3/5 of those went #1 and all of them top 5. So keep hating, obviously people still like her.

    I like most of Kesha's songs but every time I look at her I think "that girl needs a wash", anyone seen her live set from Glastonbury yet? Peformance is fine but she looks trashy and dirty (and not in a good way). I think she has a really unusual voice and its great she writes her own songs but she needs to up her game in the fashion stakes and ditch that awful glitter, this is actually one of the better pictures I've seen of her makeup-wise but that dress is horrible ;o)

    Re: madonna is shit – Ummm, the album has been out for nearly 3 months! Just sayin'.



  15. 15

    Re: madonna is shit – Why do you have Britney as your picture? Is your fav too ugly?



  16. 16

    Re: madonna is shit – um…hey dumbass femme fatal came out in march. Its almost july so naturally it is declining on the charts. But it started at number one. It recently surpassed the 1.5 million in sales mark. Really sounds like some people are still buying her music. U say she is ugly. Why don't u post a pic of u so we can judge u. What a loser.



  17. 17

    Re: madonna is shit – You're clearly just looking for attention, which is sad. You have to come online and comment 5 times on how much you hate somebody to some attention. Pathetic really.



  18. 18

    Love Ke$ha! What is gonna be her third single, though?!



  19. 19

    Re: anonymous_000 – I heard it's the Harold Song but I'm not 100%. I hope so though.

    Re: madonna is shit – You say this with a Britney avatar?… Anyways, yeah, the album is #59 AFTER 3 MONTHS, and she's THE QUEEN OF POP, the singles and the tour can confirm it to you, Little Fucktard, i mean MONSTER! xD Also Godney is looking HOT again, CaCa will NEVER look good! Sorry! ;)
