Awesome or Awful: Ke$ha’s Questionable Decisions

Giving Andrew W.K. and Wayne Coyne tattoos:
Awesome. Ke$ha has her own tattoo gun, and likes to give out prison/playground-style tats.

Having a glitter roadie, as detailed in a Time magazine interview:
Awesome. That is living the dream.

Recording “Die Young” without using your Jack Daniels-fueled mystic powers to foresee that the same month its accompanying album drops, 20 children would in fact, die young in the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy:
Awesome. We covered this, “Die Young” is a fantastic song. It suffered some unfortunate timing, but that’s nothing to apologize for. Which leads me to…

Claiming that you were forced to record the offending “Die Young” lyrics:
Awful. Many of us have tried to throw someone else under the bus at some point, but this move was a direct contradiction to Ke$ha’s “Warrior” stance. She later clarified that no one forced her to record the lyrics, but she did have reservations during the songwriting process.

Titling your newest song “Machine Gun Love:”
Awful. That seems kind of tone deaf (see above) unless it’s the kind of love that is so potentially fatal that Congress has a fierce debate over whether or not to regulate it.

The song, however:
Awesome; like a Heart deep track. Maybe this is the influence of the Flaming Lips, now Ke$ha collaborators, whose last several albums have veered toward ’70s-style arena rock.
