Bad girl pop singer Ke$ha is making history by gracing the cover of the October/November 2012 issue of VIBE magazine.
The singer is the first living solo white female artist to be on the cover of the magazine. The singer is sporting a new look that is much more mild and soft than her previous bad-girl image she first gave the world. The singer wears a mix of sexy black ensembles with chunky accessories. Her hair is soft curled and blonder than before. Ke$ha is definitely going for a more grown up look, yet keeping it sexy.
Ke$ha gets personal in her interview with the magazine, revealing intimate details about her life and her career journey. Vibe writes of how Ke$ha, whose real name is Kesha Rose Sebert, spent her early years in Nashville, Tennessee. She was the parent of a songwriting single mother and did not have much. She talks of how her love for music grew as she spent her youth summers attending a gifted teen program at Columbia University.
She speaks about how she had a hard time fitting in at school, saying “I came from a single-parent home, my mom had a nose ring and tattoos, and I’d make my own clothes. People just thought I was a f--king freak.” She decided to move to Los Angeles at 17 and connected with music mogul Dr. Luke.
ABC News notes that the pop singer is not only an artist but animal activist, too. Ke$ha is the Humane Society's first-ever Global Ambassador for the animals.
Ke$ha tweeted about her VIBE cover, writing “Animals! I'm on the cover of VIBE and IM SO EXCITED ABOUT IT!! Weeeeee.”
