Kesha, formerly known as “Ke$ha,” may have rose to fame thanks to mindless dance-pop songs, but as it turns out, there’s a whole lot more to a singer who brushes her teeth with Jack Daniels. Check out a whole bunch of facts you never knew about the “Tik Tok” superstar.
Long before she became famous, Kesha appeared on an episode of the Paris Hilton-Nicole Richie reality series The Simple Life. In the episode, Hilton, Richie, and Kesha teamed up to help Kesha’s single mother find a new boyfriend. The new dude didn’t last; however, the episode did ultimately help launch Kesha’s career. According to an interview with US Weekly, Kesha claims that producer Dr. Luke called her out of the blue while she was filming with Hilton and Richie. Kesha immediately quit high school and flew to Los Angeles, where she provided background vocals on Hilton’s debut CD. Hilariously enough, while they never became friends, Kesha admitted to accidentally vomiting in Hilton’s closet at a party. “I thought it was a bathroom,” she told US Weekly. “I was dancing too hard. And it turned out to be her closet.” She later turned the experience into a song, aptly titled “Paris Hilton’s Closet.”
She co-wrote one of Britney Spears’ biggest hits
Kesha wrote or co-wrote every song featured on her two studio albums, Animal and Warrior. So, it should come as no surprise that the singer-songwriter has lent her talents to other artists as well. Kesha’s biggest songwriting hit remains the Britney Spears smash hit “‘Til the World Ends,” which peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Kesha’s relationship with Spears actually dates back to Spears’ 2008 release, Circus, on which Kesha provided the background vocals for the song “Lace & Leather.” Beyond Spears, Kesha has also written songs for Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande.
She went to rehab…
In January 2014, Kesha entered a 30-day rehab facility to treat an ongoing eating disorder. “I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself but I’ve found it hard to practice,” Kesha said in a statement (via People magazine). Kesha wound up extending her stay in rehab for an additional month, canceling tour dates in the process, to get her health back on track. She finally exited rehab in March, which she confirmed in a series of Tweets. “Happy to be back!” She wrote. “Feeling healthy & working on tons of new music. I can’t thank my fans enough for all the love & support u [sic] have given me.”
