Zap2it: What inspires your songwriting?
Ke$ha: I think the most magical thing in life is love — either side of the roller coaster is incredibly inspirational.
Zap2it: What do you want people to know about you?
Ke$ha: You can be wild and live your life to the fullest and be as debacherous (sic) as you want to be. I really, really appreciate and love my family, and where I am at, and my fans. And I really am obsessed with animals. I am an international ambassador for the Humane Society. I have a cat, a stray I found outside a strip club. We work a lot with stray dogs. I love animals so much. You can be a total badass, and also I am just a huge dork. Also I can do all sorts of crazy s*** . You don’t have to just be one thing. You can be many things. I want to encourage people to be themselves.
Zap2it: How do you relate to your fans?
Ke$ha: I have had so many young people tell me they don’t have someone encourage them to be themselves and be a freak and be yourself. And I really try my hardest to give the haters the finger. Just be yourself, and that is what I want my show to encourage people. Nobody should feel shy after they watch my show because I am bat s***.
Zap2it: Did you have any worries about filmed with no makeup or not looking your best?
Ke$ha: In this season, you get no makeup. … If my whole message is not care what people think, you have to live it.
