Ke$ha - "Animal" MAG

With her upbeat pop sound, Ke$ha was bound to be a hit. Her single “TiK ToK” was released last summer and ­instantly became number one. The song broke records all over the world, so the standards for her new album “Animal” were very high. The 22-year-old got her start working with well-known rapper Flo Rida on the popular “Right Round.” Flo Rida now has a song on ­“Animal,” backed by Colorado ­natives Nat and Sean of the electric rap group 3OH!3.

This CD appeals mostly to young listeners with its electronic beat and raucously ­inappropriate lyrics. The intoxicating sound of “Take It Off” is mesmerizing with its techno background, much like the flirty track “Your Love Is My Drug.” Ke$ha shows her girly side with “Kiss 'n Tell,” a boisterous song poking fun at an unfaithful boyfriend.

The most intriguing tune, “Blah Blah Blah,” featuring 3OH!3, is a humorous look into the methods of male attraction.

Slower tracks make their appearance toward the end of the album. “Blind” is a song you could sulk to after a break-up, saying, “You'll miss me 'til the day you die,” and the revenge-seeking singer name-drops shamelessly in “Backstabber.”

Ending with the title track, “Animal,” the album goes out with a bang. The CD will keep you dancing. I highly recommend you take a walk on the wild side with “Animal.”

Ke$shas videos are to graphic for the younger audiences. Take the video for BLOW. She was rubbibg all down her self and that teaches kids what? That its ok to rub up  on them selves on T.V?

I agree! She really is untalented. ): The music is fun, bouncy, (and sounds like it would be great in this fantastically written review!) but honestly her music is over processed and produced. Can you say Auto Tune?

Not trying to go the extent that some have gone, but she isn't that great of a singer.

I liked your article because you TOTALLY just played up her album so much. If I didn't know any better I'd go out and buy her record immediately, thank goodness I do. Well written and expressed however.

I agree with everyone. It'd be nice if we all kept our not so nice comments to ourselves. It'd be very much apprectiated. She is talented, just a little wild that's all. (:

These songs all have great beats that just want to make you dance...but the lyrics OMG! I want to cover my ears every time she says things so disrespectful and dirty! Otherwise she has an awesome voice and if only her lyrics were clean....:)

Me 2 because she is a good singer, and the music is gr8. A song that isnt so innapropriate would get her some new fans, which is good 4 her. And, even if you don't want to listen to it, people blast TIK TOK across TV commercials and the radio, so its not like the choice is yours... just saying. :)

I'm reallt not yrying to dis on Tik Tok, but if you really listen to the lyrics, you will be very surprised. I don't think they are very appropirate. Ke$ha sounds like she doesn't have much self-respect, and she is influencing girls from America to sing songs like hers or do things she does in songs. I'm not a fan of her, but the actually music is pretty good! :)

All I have to say is "don't stop make it pop, dj turn my speakers up!" I absolutely love this song. With a song like this, the major concern is: does it sound good and make you want to dance? This song definately accomplishes its purpose.

Her lyrics are inappropriate! I dont think that you should listen to them if they are inappropriate though... She should come out with songs that arent inappropriate. I would buy so many of them if they werent.

To Hal434934982: If you don't like Ke$ha, don't read reviews on her. You don't have to bash her on this person's article. Your opinion is your opinion but you don't have to be mean just because you don't like the artist.

To the writer: This article is great. You're a really good writer and I hope you write some more!

She is a horrible singer, her lyrics mean nothing, tik tok was inspired from a time when her and her friends got drunk and woke up naked
