6 Reasons Kesha Is Gen-Y's Most Unexpected Role Model
Give the haters a finger and be true to yourself. You can't be a victim. You have to be a warrior. -Kesha
With or without the dollar sign, Kesha Sebert has always been incredibly inspirational to me.
If you know me, you'd know I'm obsessed with Ke$ha.
After seeing her perform live multiple times, dancing in crazy outfits and throwing glitter everywhere, as well as watching her reality TV show, I realized Kesha’s message is much deeper than many people give her credit for.
Ke$ha, who now goes by Kesha, is a real human being.
She isn't pretentious or prude; she's real. And that's why I admire her so much.
Kesha has taught us to be ourselves unapologetically no matter what.
Beneath all the glitter, Jack Daniel's and excessive partying, Kesha is a role model.
In a way, I think we should all have some Kesha in us. Here's why:
Caring About Others, And Just Being A Good F*cking Person:
I was dating a guy once who spoke rudely to a taxi driver. I got out of the cab and walked home. Treat people with respect. I've waited tables, and that's why I just exceedingly overtip. It's exhausting work.
What other celebrity would actually care enough about someone they don't even know to do that?
She believes in karma and if you are a positive person who treats people with respect, you'll get that back in return.
Attitude Toward Men Who Suck:
I do destroy men who just want to sleep with me on a weekly basis. It's like a hobby. I'm like a praying mantis. All men who screw me over have to know their name might end up in a pop song.
Because what girl wouldn't love to bash every asshole in a number one hit single?
I mean nothing says, "f*ck you, dude," like blasting it on your radio.
Her Attitude Toward Haters:
My message is to give haters the finger, and be yourself. I used my haters comments for motivation, and I still do. I remember every person who told me I couldn't do something or that I was ugly or too fat. I have a sh*t list.
If someone doesn't like her, f*ck them.
She's gonna do whatever makes her happy and haters gonna hate.
She believes life is what you make it, and your own happiness relies on how you respond to the world.
Haters are forever setting standards for other people and raising the bar for everyone but themselves.
You’re never pretty/classy/smart/funny enough for them.
There are people in this world who will just never like you, and that's perfectly fine.
In some ways, haters envy us. They secretly wish to be us.
So, respect your haters because in some ways they are the ones who think you're better than them.
She Stands Up For What She Believes In:
She's literally the pop voice for victims.
She stated she would not get married until gay marriage is legal in every state.
Her album, Warrior, was about standing up for victims being bullied.
She has a zero tolerance level of bullying, which speaks volumes about her character.
Kesha is also a strong advocate for women's rights, the LGBTQ+ community and animal rights.
Be yourself, unapologetically.
This is probably one of the most inspirational things about her.
Kesha can rock blue lipstick and excessive amounts of glitter because she kills it with confidence.
She doesn't pretend to be someone she's not because she has too much fun being herself.
Stop comparing yourself to hot Instagram models, because you are beautifully unique.
You don't have to be a size 0 to be beautiful, and Kesha tells us to embrace ourselves.
Stop trying to fit in when you were born to stand out.
Never change who you are and who you want to be for someone else, especially not a guy.
Kesha tells us every weird thing about you is what makes life beautiful and interesting.
This is the nicest way to say don't be a boring bitch.
I heard our song on the radio, and I see your face everywhere I go, I thought I’d call just to let you know, I’ve been thinking of you; But now my song’s on the radio and you see my face everywhere you go…
So the relationship didn't work out, learn from it.
Work on yourself, and become a better you. Or just become a famous pop star and make music about your ex, because that works too.
Kesha is a warrior, and she is someone who fights for what she believes in. We should all aspire to have some Kesha in us.
Now Kesha needs our help, guys.
If you haven't heard, her career is now standing on thin ice.
Here lawyers have stated in a legal filing that:
She cannot work with music producers, publishers, or record labels to release new music. With no new music to perform, Kesha cannot tour. Off the radio and stage and out of the spotlight, Kesha cannot sell merchandise, receive sponsorships, or get media attention. Her brand value has fallen, and unless the Court issues this injunction, Kesha will suffer irreparable harm, plummeting her career past the point of no return.
She has been a victim for 10 years now, and it's time we stand up for her.
Kesha is a human being who just tries to do what she loves and send a positive message to all her fans.
But she’s bullied and beat down for it constantly.
Even if you don’t care for her music, and even if it doesn’t do anything, show her some support.
Because just seeing people are there for her can be very helpful.
