Ke$ha tosses hat into reality TV arena
NEW YORK — MTV has announced Tuesday that pop singer Ke$ha will star in a reality TV-style documentary series, “Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life,” in April.
The show will focus on Ke$ha’s life over the last two years, zeroing on her recording music and traveling. Her brother, Lagan Sebert, shot the footage.
Ke$ha, 25, wrote in an official statement that she’s “revealing a more complete picture of what my life is really like” in the series. Life is “not all glamorous, but it’s all real,” she stated.
Ke$ha, born Kesha Rose Sebert, is an American singer-songwriter and rapper. In 2005, at age 18, Ke$ha was signed to producer Dr. Luke’s record label, Kemosabe Entertainment, and publishing company. Although an active musician since then, singing background vocals and writing songs for other artists, her breakthrough came in early 2009 after appearing on rapper Flo Rida’s number-one single, “Right Round.”
Ke$ha’s debut album, Animal and her first extended play, Cannibal, were released in 2010. Ke$ha irreverent music and image propelled her to immediate commercial success, with Animal debuting as the number-one album in the US. She also achieved two number-one singles, “Tik Tok” and “We R Who We R”, and a string of top ten hits from the album and its re-release. At the same time, she continued to write songs for other artists, including “Till the World Ends” for pop singer Britney Spears. Warrior, her second studio album released in December 2012, spawned Kesha’s eighth top-ten hit with “Die Young”.
