Ke$ha is the little cocoon that sang on Flo-ridas Right Round' who one day transformed into a butterfly filled with dollar sign plastered wings, and created a number one hit single "TiK ToK" with an album filled with A-list producers. Her and I chatted about the boy she's currently stalking "Stephen" (which even brought influence to a track on her debut "Animal" ), her experiences in high school and how she feels about the outcome of her album release. Did I mention she was on "The Simple Life"" with Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton? Oh and she broke into Prince's house and dropped off her demo tape. Intrigued yet?
