After getting public attention for her background vocals in Flo Ridaâ€™s â€œRight Roundâ€, Keshaâ€™s career has really taken off in the past year, breaking digital sales records for her first debut single â€œTik Tokâ€. Kesha reportedly lived an impoverished childhood and was raised by her financially deprived singer mom, Pebe Sebert. Kesha gave herself a fame-thirty image by breaking in Princeâ€™s house in give him a demo tape and throwing up in Paris Hiltonâ€™s closet. These stunts eventually worked in Keshaâ€™s favorite, as she signed with RCA, made a live debut at Lollapalooza and released her 2010 album Animal.
The recordâ€™s first single â€œTik Tokâ€ broke radio play records as the longest running number one hit song by a female artist since Debby Booneâ€™s 1977 â€œYou Light Up My Lifeâ€. This hit was followed up by â€œBlah Blah Blahâ€ and the albumâ€™s infectious opening track â€œYour Love is My Drugâ€. The album has received mixed reviews for being carefree, juvenile and giving her a rebellious, party girl image. Her songs bring an edgy mix into the pop scene while her storytelling lyrics are inspired by her Nashville roots. Kesha will be opening for Rihannaâ€™s â€œLast Girl on Earthâ€ Tour at the Comcast Center on August 8th and is also performing as part of Lilith Fairâ€™s all-female lineup.
