Ke$ha Opens Up About Pansexuality and Bullying

Ditching her usual glitter and grunge for some adorable, fluffy kittens, Ke$ha covers the February issue of Seventeen Magazine. And, while opening up about herself, the over-the-top pop star has some down-to-earth things to say about sensitivity.

Donning flowing, floral dresses and a bohemian look for the magazine’s photo spread, the “Tik Tok” star shows some range, even as her outrageous self shines through. Not only has her wardrobe changed for the shoot, but Ke$ha has some important things to say on topics other than partying and sparkles.

Addressing her haters, she says: “I used [negative comments] to motivate me then, and I still do.”

“I remember every person who told me I couldn’t do something, or that I was ugly or too fat,” she adds. “I have a ‘sh-t list’ – people from my past who have been soulless and judgmental. 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.’”

According to Kes$ha, however, success is the greatest form of revenge. “I see [those people] 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!’”

But not only does the rock-pop princess take a stand for herself, but she also shows support for all of her fans and so-called “animals” as well.

“I’m all about standing up to gay/lesbian/transgender bullying, but it’s also about my little brother,” she explained. “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.”

It may come as no surprise that Ke$ha has strong feeling towards the LBTGQ community, but she identifies with them more than you might think. “I don’t love ‘just’ men. I love people,” she reasoned. “It’s not about a gender. It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with.”

Sure, Ke$ha may sing about drinking and underground parties, but she sure has a proper head on her shoulders. It’s not always easy to find an artist that creates fun, energetic music and at the same time appreciates the struggles of daily life for so many people.
