MTV’s Ke$ha docuseries, “My Crazy Beautiful Life,” will air at 11 p.m. on April 23, the network announced Wednesday. A new clip sees the “Tik Tok” singer fellating a cannoli and pushing her breasts onto a woman’s face, so, no, no surprises here.
The special shares the same name as Ke$ha’s book and promises an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at a pop star we’re supposed to believe is misunderstood. If this sounds familiar, it’s because every single pop act, from Beyonce (“Life Is But a Dream”) to Katy Perry (“Katy Perry the Movie: Part of Me”) to Justin Bieber (“Never Say Never”) has tried to tell us that we really don’t know them and then made some film or TV feature that confirms everything we already imagined (Beyonce’s obsessed with her image, Katy Perry is actually pretty nice, Justin Bieber is a boy). This is an old trick, hearkening back to Madonna’s 1991 “Truth or Die.”
But since this is Ke$ha’s turn in the self-inflicted spotlight, things are slightly grosser and less polished. Ke$ha’s the singer who puts strangers’ beards in her mouth (see below), wears a bra made of human teeth, posts photos of herself peeing in the street and apparently drinks her own urine in the MTV series.
See MTV’s preview clip above, in which Ke$ha gets cozy with a phallic dessert and proceeds to start a forced food fight that involves her yelling “I’m the boss” while shoving her chest onto the face of someone who does their best to smile. Not exactly solid work, but when you’re a pop star whose last album didn’t even reach the Top 5, perhaps there’s not much else to do.
