One doesn’t even need to squint in order to see Ke$ha’s discography as a type of non-linear memoir, with songs like “We R Who We R” and “Tik Tok” conveying the type of self-confidence/inherent Diddy-ness that any writer could only hope to portray in their own biography. But something more official isn’t out of the question, which is why Ke$ha has announced plans to write an illustrated memoir in conjunction with the release of her new album, Warrior, on November 20. It may shock you, though, to find that she hasn’t always been the most glitter-drenched girl at the party. In a statement, she said:
In less than three years I’ve gone from being the worst waitress in LA to living out my childhood dreams of singing my songs to people all over the world. Sometimes, it feels as if the last few years have encompassed a few decades. You might have heard my voice on the radio, seen me onstage and on the red carpet, or in a music video, but that’s only a part of the story. In these pages, I’m revealing a more complete picture of what my life is really like. It’s not all glamorous and it’s not all pretty, but it’s all real.
Way too real. Does anyone want to pay me to do a compare/contrast with Salman Rushdie’s memoir? You can listen to Warrior‘s newest single, “Die Young,” right below; it’s sort of awesome!
