I get that being gross is part of her image, but I think Ke$ha went a little overboard when she popped a squat in public.
“When you gotta go, you gotta go.” It’s a saying we’ve all heard countless times, and one Ke$ha took to heart April 24 when she decided to relieve herself on the street. Blaming traffic, the pop star tweeted to her 3.15 million followers, “Pee pee on the street. PoPo come n get me if u can find meeee.” It’s literally taken me two days to process my feelings on this.
Even for a girl who’s built her reputation around being nasty — the word “dirty” can be found in more than 10 of her released tracks — this act is straight-up gross. And unlike Cee Lo Green‘s nationally televised fart, which I also analyzed, there is no double standard here. It would have been just as gross and wrong for a dude to pee on the street as it is for Ke$ha.
I’m not even going to try to hate on Ke$ha. She’s awesome and uses unicorns in her music videos in the most phenomenal ways possible. But I will urge her to hold it in next time — or at the very least, not to invite her followers to your next pee party.
We never R.S.V.P.’d for that, and some things can never be unseen.
