Her debut album Animal has sold over 2.5 million units worldwide and Ke$ha has had 7 consecutive Top 10 hits including four #1 singles in “TiK ToK”, “Your Love Is My Drug,” “We R Who We R” and the latest, “Die Young.” Ke$ha recently released the track “C’Mon,” the second single from her critically acclaimed second album, Warrior.
Ke$ha has toured the world, playing more than 200 live shows in support of Animal and its companion album Cannibal. She took home the MTV EMA for “Best New Act” in November 2010 and was nominated for 2 American Music Awards, 3 MTV VMA Awards and 6 Billboard Awards. Ke$ha has performed on dozens of television programs all over the world including MTV Europe Music Awards, Much Music Awards (Canada), Echo Awards (Germany), X Factor (Australia), American Music Awards, Billboard Awards, American Idol, Saturday Night Live and The Today Show Summer Concert Series. She has over 22 million Facebook likes, over 3 million Twitter followers and over 330 million views on VEVO.

The full-color photo journal/scrapbook entitled My Crazy Beautiful Life, sheds light on Ke$ha’s hectic, non-stop life on tour and provides an exclusive look into the creative process of her latest album, Warrior. Also in late 2012, Ke$ha announced Kesha Rose by Charles Albert(r), a new jewelry line that reflects the singer’s distinctive personality throughout the collection. Ke$ha was also recently named the first global ambassador for Humane Society International. Kesha also has her own reality show entitled “My Beautiful Crazy Life” on MTV that airs Tuesday nights.
