Ke$ha is a rising star on the music scene.
She appeared in the Katy Perry video for "I Kissed a Girl" and her single, "Tik Tok," was the most downloaded song by a female artist in 2009.
Still, the 22-year old isn't a household name just yet, which may explain why she recently went on the record with Out magazine. There's rarely a better way to garner attention than to sound off about one's sexuality in an ambiguous manner.
Asked if she is gay, Ke$ha replied: "I wouldn’t say I’m gay or straight - I don’t like labeling things anyway. I just like people."
In a different interview, though, the artist makes it fairly clear which gender she wants to attract to the yard via her milkshake.
"Shakira is really hot... Boys are too difficult. Who’s got the time?”
As for being a role model - for the gay community, like Adam Lambert, or anyone - Ke$ha has a take on that, too:
“There are certain things young girls can look to me as a role model for – I’m not saying everything. I do think it’s an important thing that happiness and the amount of money you have are mixed. There’s absolutely no correlation, because the happiest times of my entire life have been when I didn’t have $2.”
