Few people in the world would ever dream of combining yodeling and rapping, but that didn’t stop Kesha Sebert.
Better known as Ke$ha, the 26-year-old who’s famous for the song “Tik Tok,” recently broke into the world of reality television when MTV aired the first episode of “Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life.”
The 30 minute self-narrated show, which was filmed by Ke$ha’s brother, detailed some of the beginning stretches of her first headlining tour. Louis, Ke$ha’s brother, captured all the memories of the last two years from her relaxing in hometown Los Angeles to preparing for the upcoming Glastonbury Festival.
The familial support didn’t stop there. Ke$ha’s mom, Pebe, makes several appearances in the episode as well.
Ke$ha explained one of the hardest parts of touring was missing her family, but that her fans, or “second family,” made it all worthwhile.
“God, that’s better than any drug,” Ke$ha said after being greeted by hoards of screaming fans at one of her shows.
What may surprise many people who watch MTV’s newest show is that the same girl who is seen drunkenly attempting cartwheels between songs, is also a certified genius. With an IQ of over 140, Ke$ha is not exactly your typical pop sensation.
And although many hate on Ke$ha’s outrageous style and party girl image, her albums “Animal,” “Cannibal,” and 2012’s “Warrior” have all sold astonishing numbers. In fact, “Tik Tok” was at one point the best selling digital single in history.
Ke$ha sometimes takes a break from all the partying to reveal her more sentimental side on the show. In the first episode, the singer opened up about her past lover and “muse” who inspired “The Harold Song.” She also took time to hug and cry with a fan who shared that Ke$ha’s music helped him cope with severe bullying at school.
Whether you love or hate her, it’s worth checking out “Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life” on Tuesdays at 11 p.m. for all the chaos.
