"The Harold Song" by Ke$ha
- Interviewer: You’ve got a pretty open relationship with your fans. What’s the craziest display of devotion you’ve experienced?
- Ke$ha: I think probably the craziest—it’s not that crazy to me, but people seem to find it crazy—is that my fans have sent me their teeth.
- Interviewer: Really?
- Ke$ha: Yeah, my fans have sent me about over a thousand human teeth, that I’m making different accessories and clothing out of.
- Interviewer: Are they pulling them out?
- Ke$ha: I think most of them are just teeth that have naturally fallen out, but a couple of them have given me bloody teeth. It’s a little sketchy, but I love it.
- Interviewer: Did you solicit them?
- Ke$ha: Well, I tweeted about it. I said, gimme your teeth if you have any extras, ’cause I want to make a headdress out of it. I’ve gotten so many that now I’ve made, like, necklaces and earrings and a headdress and a bra.
- Interviewer: Sounds like the beginnings of a clothing line.
- Ke$ha: Stay tuned!
- Interviewer: How much glitter do you go through in the average month?
- Ke$ha: Well, a month on tour or a month at home?
- Interviewer: Both.
- Ke$ha: A month at home is like—I still use more glitter than the average human, probably. But on tour, I think I go through like, a couple hundred gallons of glitter.
- Interviewer: Can you break that down?
- Ke$ha: On my rider there’s a bathtub full of glitter, cause that’s how I get ready for my show. I cover my body in baby oil and sit in a bathtub full of glitter, cause it’s just the easiest way to get it all over your body.
- Interviewer: Of course.
- Ke$ha: Then I blast it at the end of “Tik Tok.” Then during “Blow,” I blast glitter, and I have it falling from the ceiling, and everybody in my band is covered in glitter. There’s an entire semi truck that’s just a glitter semi. And I have a roadie, like a tech roadie, and he’s just the glitter roadie.
- Interviewer: That’s his actual job? Glitter roadie?
- Ke$ha: Yeah, he’s amazing. He knows everything about glitter. He’s very well informed. Almost as well informed as I am.
- Interviewer: Speaking of which, is it true you got a 1500 [out of 1600] on your SATs?
- Ke$ha: Yeah. I was all set out for, like, a life of academia.
- Interviewer: And now you’re a pop star.
- Ke$ha: I chose instead to drop out of high school like a month away from graduation and do this. I’ve never looked back, though.

Last night, I had a dream that Ke$ha was running for president and her campaign was her handing out these really good sandwiches I think I need to sleep earlier
So while you’re here in my arms…
also have a Ke$ha gif that sums up my life
Laurent Clerc’s life began December 26, 1785 in La Balme-les-Grottes, Isere, in France, and was born to atypical bourgeois household.This was like a socialite middle class standing. When he was a year old, his parents were busy blowing him off doing whatever busy socialite parents do, and as kids will, he managed to fall from his chair onto the hearth. This is by a fireplace and kind of terrible parenting,and he acquired permanent scar on the right side of his face below his ear.From this point on, his parents noticed he was deaf and had no sense of smell, but Laurent swears up and down he was always like this. The scar he got from this incident was the basis for his name sign.
As Clerc grew older, he took the sage advice that a wise woman once said, and I quote: “I don’t need you and your brand new Benz…or your bougie friends.” and he left his parents and went to the Paris school for the deaf, was taught by Abbe Sicard, and eventually became a teacher there.
