Ke$ha’s goal with her music is to end sexism in pop. The 25-year-old singer found worldwide fame with her single Tik Tok, which was criticized for promoting drinking and promiscuity, and she doesn’t think it’s fair that men are allowed to sing about getting drunk and women aren’t. Ke$ha explained, “If men can talk about drinking in every awesome rock ‘n’ roll song and every awesome rap song, why can’t a woman? Just because I drink doesn’t mean I’m a drunk. Just because I have sex, and I’m not embarrassed doesn’t mean I’m a whore. If men can do it, why can’t a woman do it? I really feel one of my main reasons for being on this earth is to level out the playing field just a little bit.”
The Die Young hit maker, who is just about to release her second album Warrior, considers herself a feminist and insists she is determined to push the boundaries of what women can do. When asked if Ke$ha was a feminist, she told the Financial Times Weekend magazine, “In some ways. In the ways that I feel I can do the same things men can do, and be just as rock ‘n’ roll and bad ass and not feel shameful or be shamed for it.”
