Maybe we’re just easily surprised. Maybe we’re just nostalgic for the days of Sassy. Whatever it is, we were more than delighted to read Ke$ha talk openly with Seventeen about being attracted to both men and women, and to see the magazine print her comments like they’re no big deal. “I don’t love just men. I love people,” the musician revealed. “It’s not about a gender. It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with.” Aw, we love that! Of course Ke$ha’s comments are in fact no big deal, but occasionally people lose their minds about stuff like that. You know what we’re talking about. You live in the same society as we do.
Ke$ha also has some delightful things to say against bullying (“I’m all about standing up to gay/lesbian/transgender bullying, but it’s also about my little brother. He’s 13 and he gets made fun of because he has a stutter. I just have zero tolerance for people making fun of others.) and sweet, sweet vengeance. “Even after I got through my awkward phase, got my braces off, and figured out how to dress my body, people in the music business were like, ‘You’re never going to make it,’” Ke$ha admits, “I see them now and I’m like, ‘Ha!’ That’s one of the reasons I named my record Warrior. You can be a victim and let that eat your soul, or you can say, ‘You’re going on my list and I’m going to prove you wrong!’” We’re so thrilled with Ke$ha’s interview and Seventeen for printing it, we’re going to go ahead and ignore the “Great Legs! Nice Butt! Flat Abs! Page 65″ blurb on the top of the mag’s cover. This magazine is for teen girls, people. Let’s remind them that they can have whatever kind of butts, legs and abs they want to.
