Kesha: I Can Sing

Kesha on the cover of 'Vibe'Kesha insists she can sing without auto-tune. The "Tik Tok" hitmaker was determined to prove her critics wrong on her second album Warrior and has banished all technological tricks and added more rock guitars in order to show off her vocals.

"I got really sick of people saying that I couldn't sing, because I can do very few things confidently in my life, and one of them is that I can sing. I remember thinking [with Animal], 'Oh, it's just processed. People will learn that I can sing later.' But after reading some reviews that were like, 'She can't sing,' I finally was like, 'F**k that.'"

The controversial starlet - born Kesha Rose Sebert - is back in the charts after taking a short sabbatical at the end of 2011 because she felt she needed time to relax and to embark on a "spiritual journey." However, she admitted she had to ask her record label to "back off" when they started pressuring her to make new music.

Kesha Likes to Tattoo Her Co-Workers

KeshaKesha likes to tattoo everyone she works with.

The "We R Who We R" singer collaborated with The Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne on a few songs for the group's new album The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends, and when she turned up, decided to etch an inking on his body.

"Most of the time, if someone's willing to work with me, they're going to be a freak. And Kesha... I sort of thought that she would be a freak, I'd heard about her and we'd tried to get a hold of her earlier. We showed up at her house, and she has a tattoo gun that she gives everyone a tattoo with, so within 20 minutes of being at her house, I had a tattoo on my toe; it's the only tattoo I've ever had," Wayne said.

Wayne says he was hugely impressed with Kesha and he learnt a lot form spending time with her: "We were set to do this one song that I had prepared, and we went into the studio that night, and stayed there until about two in the morning, and did four songs, just making stuff up. And the next day [we] worked for another couple hours. She's funny, she's gracious, she's imaginative, she's creative and she's a lot of fun to be around."
