Ke$ha just dropped her new album, Warrior!
But she recently explained how she needed to take some time off before she made her new record.
"When you don't sleep properly for weeks at a time it's hard to stay mentally stable - it's also why you're an artist because you're a little crazy to begin with. Before writing my new album, Warrior, I decided to go on what I call my spirit journey. My manager tried to make me take security to protect me but I said no."
She apparently went on a trip to the Galapagos Islands and even went on safari in South Africa.
She wanted to go and just watch animals in nature, because it keeps her "grounded."
"It was important for me as talking about yourself in interviews is a very egocentric lifestyle. There's not a lot of normal stuff happening in my life. It's all pretty weird and magical and I wanted to write about that. I'm still celebrating life on this album, and I hope I'll be doing that till the day I die. You hear lots of different sides of my personality, but my fans still get me talking s**t over a dance beat."
Ha! She totes embraces her style!
She seems so down to earth!
Or at least as down to earth as magical music ladies can be!
Way to make your mental health a priority, gurl!
