The short biography of Ke$ha

Kesha Rose Sebert was Born in 1987 and is currently a pop singer and pop icon recognized as Ke$ha. She was not always the seductive, foul lyriced girl she is today, here is a short biography.

Kesha lived with her older brother and mother in Los Angeles, CA and her mom was a struggling songwriter that was rather unsuccessful. The family lived off welfare and food stamps, on her website she says "One of my first memories is my mom telling me, 'If you want something, just take it.'" When Kesha was 4, she moved to Nashville with her family, where her mother landed a songwriting contract.

Kesha went to music school and spent a lot of time with her mother in recording studios singing and making demos being very inspired by country music (wouldn't of guessed that one, huh!?) Kesha dropped out of high school at 17 to pursue her music career and moved back to Los Angeles and changed her name to "Ke$ha". She started out by being back up vocalist for Brittney Spears and Paris Hilton (both wonderful influences for a 17 yr old drop out... NOT!)

How did she make it BIG, then? She dropped an unpaid cameo in Flo Rida's hit song "Right Round" (Possibly the gnarliest and dirtiest song of that year) She then got a record contract with RCA and began pumping out her first album "Animal".

Ke$ha's lyrics are very dirty and trashy and there is nothing more sad than walking into a 6th grade class and asking the kids who they listen to and all of the girls yell out "Ke$ha!" has a documented conversation about her fans and her suggested lyrics. "I'm not a babysitter," the singer says. "It's their parents' responsibility to take care of them." For Ke$ha, her life provides much of the inspiration for her songs. "I'll go out with my friends and get rowdy . . . I'm not sorry, and I will write about it."
The album, "Animal" reached the top of the billboard charts after its release in 2010. In addition to "Tik Tok," Ke$ha has even more big hit singles "Blah Blah Blah" and "Your Love Is My Drug."

Rocky, why are you writing about Ke$ha? Look, the reason i am putting putting out biographies on pop icons is because we all need to realize that first off, these people are normal human beings, they get sad, money does not make them happy, they are not God, they should not be your idol and they all are fake for the cameras and to be "famous/infamous".

When you live on welfare and move around with your mom growing up in recording studios, it is hard to not want to be a famous singer to make your parent proud. As a high school drop out looking for a way to survive, when you come along and start hanging with super rich Britney and Paris, you are going to be influenced. Have we not had most of our bad influences come from older "friends"?! You want to fit in, be cool, be like them. Way to go Ke$ha, you are just like them and now thousands of middle school girls want to be just like you, seductive, trashy, drunk and no respect for your sexuality or your beautiful soul.

"Women We Love" Bares Lingerie, Not Souls

"It distracts us from the truth and scatters our power. It's one big acid trip fantasy with no connection to improving our lives, being good fathers and husbands and advancing our careers." Tom Matlock at the Huffington Post posted an interesting article recently that caught my eye. . . "Esquire's Women Bare Lingerie, Not Souls." His response to Esquire's popular "The Women We Love" feature challenges men to consider the dangers of lust, masturbation, and porn and to ask, "What is it that we love about these women? Their twirling-banana-swing fantasies? Their factory-fresh "breasts"? Their naughty smiles? Are those things truly what men at their best love about women?"

'Satan should hold a party when we die'

Well worth a look! A few days ago the UK's Catholic Herald ran this article about Matthew Fradd, a twenty-eight year old who battled a porn addiction and started the website to help others who are fighting to overcome the same addiction.

“We want to be the kind of men that, when we’re dead, Satan throws a party. He says: ‘Thank God he has gone, he caused my kingdom too much damage.’ That’s the kind of man I want to be. And I think that’s the kind of man most men want to be.”

Katheryn Hudson a.k.a Katy Perry

I love seeing where people came from, why people do what they do and act like they do. Everyone loves a good story right? Well here is a quick Bio about a girl named Katheryn and how she came to be known as the (in)famous Katy Perry.... buckle your seat belts cause its quite the tale.

Katheryn Hudson, originally from Santa Barbara moved to Nashville with her parents when they got a recording contract to put out a GOSPEL ALBUM! Katy Hudson put out her first album at 16 in 2001... it was a Christian Pop Album! It didn't go too well and in 2008 she ditched her Christian fan base and moved onto Capital Records changed her name to Katy Perry (she didn't want to be confused with the actress) put up a bunch of pin up photos and her big debut song "I kissed a girl"... she continues her fame and later puts out a new album with "California Gurls" and "Teenage Dream" etc...

Blah Blah Blah... My point is this, Fame and Spotlight can destroy a person. It can make them loose their morals and can turn you against yourself for the sake of vanity. Brothers and sisters, I fear too many of our neighbors are dying to be recognized, long to be on the spotlight... and they are willing to drop all morals and respect to do so (see image below, haha, partial joke, but not really).

This biography is just a friendly reminder, you can grow up Christian, you can even put out a Christian Album, but Satan will offer you anything you want if you are willing to submit to the world.I am in no way judging her, just using her as an example of how the Devil can use those on the right path and flip around their desires. Whether or not she goes to Church every Sunday or whatever, her music and appearance speaks for itself.
