The ‘Die Young‘ singer discusses with the magazine how she handles all the haters.
“I used [negative comments] to motivate me then, and I still do. I remember every person who told me I couldn’t do something or that I was ugly or too fat. I have a “s*** list” — people from my past who have been soulless and judgmental. Even after I got through my awkward phase, got
my braces off, and figured out how to dress my body, people in the music business were like, ‘You’re never going to make it.’ I see them now and I’m like, ‘Ha!’ That’s one of the reasons I named my record Warrior. You can be a victim and let that eat your soul, or you can say, You’re going on my list and I’m going to prove you wrong!”, Ke$ha explains to Seventeen.

Appearing barefoot on the cover, the 25-year-old singer shows plenty of leg through her flowy ethereal dress. Ke$ha tops her edgy hairdo with a floral headpiece.
With her bleached blonde locks styled into retro pin curls, the ‘Die Young’ songbird fondles herself in a longsleeve lace Dolce & Gabbana dress on the Sarah McColgan-shot cover.
The 25-year-old singer tells the magazine the following on being a cheapskate:
“I’m not frivolous, I never go shopping. And I love cheap costume jewelry. An underlying theme [of my first album, Animal] was how you can be broke and still have fun. Money doesn’t determine whether I’m happy. But it’s really fun to get light-up shoes”.
The 25-year-old describes the sound of her upcoming album to the magazine.
“Some people will be shocked. Some will also be excited to know that I don’t just do silly white-girl rap. I’m from the South, I have a lot of soul. But trust me — it’s not going to be some avant-garde jazz record. I innately write pop songs. That’s just what I do”, Ke$ha explains to V.

The 24-year-old singer talks to the magazine about whether she ever leaves the house without any makeup.
“My makeup is usually left over from the night before. I’m not really worried about the photographs because if I tell my fans not to give a f–k about the haters, then I have to practice what I preach. I embrace the imperfections and celebrate them”, Ke$ha tells Glamour.

The ‘Born To Die’ singer talks to the magazine about how she has been dealing with her overnight success.
“You talk about all these things that have happened to me in this short space of time, but the one thing that has really changed is that I now have an audience. I turn up in Glasgow or Manchester or Amsterdam and there are good people waving at me from the crowd. That’s amazing”, Lana points out to V.
Lana stars in V magazine’s inaugural ‘Music Issue’, which also features musicians such as Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Ke$ha, Britney Spears, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Yoko Ono, Drake and many more. Teen sensation Justin Bieber is confirmed to be the cover star, photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde And Vinoodh Matadin in Dolce & Gabbana — coverlines read “Pop’s crowd prince turns 18″.
Britney Spears is once again back with another banging music video, this time around sans dance moves, but rather with a thrilling mini movie filled with lots of humour and symbolism. Let’s be honest Britney often appears cold, unanimated and absent in most of her music videos, especially in recent years, but with the “I Wanna Go” video you can tell that she’s fully present and actually enjoying herself.
The video kicks off at a press conference, where reporters are asking Britney foolish yet funny questions such as “is it true you banned junk food, smiles, candy, sunshine and laughter from your Femme Fatale Tour?” and “Britney, can you confirm reports that you are pregnant with Brad Pitt’s love child?”. The 29-year-old finally decides that she’s fed-up with all their trivial questions, and literally tells them to “fuck off”.
Subsequently, the singer emerge from a building sporting an Avril Lavigne-esque look, that consist of a studded biker jacket, combat boots and pink-striped hair. Britney decides to let loose and just live her life the way she wants to. Thus she starts behaving outrageously — groping a fan, flashing an underage boy and seducing a cop, while at the same time battling lurking paparazzi. It all proves to be too much for our dear Brit Brit, as her knight in shining armor (played by actor Guillermo Díaz) arrives in a car and rescues her from it all. But are his motives really pure and innocent?
As Britney is escaping it all with her prince charming, she snaps out of it. It turns out it was all just a dream and Britney comes back to reality. We are taken back to the scene of the chaotic press conference, where reporters are still asking Britney silly questions like “Britney why is my wife cheating on me?”. An innocent looking Brit Brit then points out to a sleazy looking Guillermo — who is unclear if he’s now portraying Britney’s manager, boyfriend or bodyguard — that she just had the weirdest dream ever. Guillermo patronizingly replies “I love dreams and seashells” as he takes her away from the crazed press conference.
Directed by Chris Marrs Piliero, who is also responsible for Ke$ha’s jesting ‘Blow’ music video, this is by far the best Britney video from the Femme Fatale era. Sure a lot of the scenarios in the video are greatly exaggerated for theatrical thrill, but Britney is wittingly showing us what she encounters on a daily basis. Even though the video has a lot of underlying messages, for instance that people close to her always seem to have ulterior motives, Britney is really making one big bold statement with the video. Perhaps that while she’s back and better than ever from her down period, she still can’t fully live her life the way she wants to, due to the public’s over scrutiny. It’s very important to also point out that girl is looking mighty fine lately.
Justin Bieber stole the 2011 Billboard Music Awards by locking lips with girlfriend Selena Gomez after he was announced as the Top New Artist. Rihanna and Britney Spears also kept us talking with their raunchy ‘S&M’ performance before then. Elsewhere, the white carpet failed to get as much enthusiasm. Many stars opted to play it safe. The carpet only saw a peak once Rihanna walked it with a matching white pant suit, while stars such as Nicole Kidman, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez made the most effort with sophisticated gowns. Here is all the fashion:
