Shot by Sarah McColgan, Ke$ha looks well groomed in a lace dress as she makes history on the October/November cover of Vibe magazine.
The 23-year-old singer is the first living white female to cover the Hip Hop publication.
In the issue, Ke$ha dishes on what to expect from her sophomore album titled Warrior dropping in December, not overspending and much more.
On Warrior: “The first record was a celebration of partying and being young, but this record’s a better look at my personality. Whatever, I drink like a champion. But I can also do other stuff. I have a sense of humor about my lyrics. I’m not a train wreck, I’m just having fun.”
On her childhood: “I came from a single-parent home, my mom had a nose ring and tattoos, and I’d make my own clothes. People just thought I was a f***ing freak.”
On not splurging: “I’m not frivolous, I never go shopping, and I love cheap costume jewelry. An underlying theme [of my first album, Animal] was how you can be broke and still have fun. Money doesn’t determine whether I’m happy. But it’s really fun to get light-up shoes.”
