You won’t be able to miss V Magazine‘s Americana issue, out on newsstands on May 10, even if you wanted to. The cover features Ke$ha‘s face with tricked out big hair, like a lion’s mane, and her face painted with the Stars & Stripes. It’s colorful and almost hypnotic. We never thought we’d call someone who pees on the street hypnotic, but there you have it.
The magazine’s editorial team published a bit on why they chose the singer to cover the issue, amid the regular explanations of the magazine’s contents. They said, “In this edition of V you’ll find historic fashion figures, musical geniuses, and a fair amount of kitsch. Our cover star, the indomitable Ke$ha (shot by Inez & Vinoodh and styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele), ticks all three of the aforementioned boxes.” They also propped her up, adding, “Not only is she fearless with her style, but as the self-made songstress from Tennessee reveals to senior editor Patrik Sandberg, she is equally passionate about her loyal fanbase and her furry four-legged friends. ”
Ke$ha herself reveals a hilarious take on what she thinks about her image in the magazine, stating, “I do feel like there are the pop stars of the world and then I’m like their dirty little sister, running around with sh– on my face in combat boots because I can’t walk in heels.” As far as quotes go, we have to applaud the self-effacing honesty of it. What do you guys think of her cover?
