The Otamatone created by Japanese performance artist Maywa Denki is a cleverly designed electronic instrument in the shape of a musical note with a cute face. To play the Otamatone requires no musical experience and is so easy to create some fun tunes. The stem is where you select your pitch. To change the pitch of the tune, just slide your fingers up and down the stem. Squeeze the cheeks of its face makes its mouth open to produce vibrato. Simple as that!

Well ok Kesha, maybe it’s because you’re an auto tuned peice of shit who shouldn’t be famous, you have no Buisness being in the music industry, it’s not even your music you fuck, someone else wrote it for you to record and them to auto tune yourself. And it’s not at all good . It’s not positive either. So complain some more.

I don’t know if you know this, tumblr user koolkidseatgreens, but Ke$ha is a certified genius. She has an IQ over 140 and an SAT score of 1500. When she was younger she would go to the library and do research for fun. Ke$ha is a both feminist and an advocate for equal marriage/rights for people of any sexuality, being a queer woman herself.

Ke$ha is a smart, professional woman, and just because she sings songs about wanting to let loose and have fun every once in a while doesn’t make her a piece of shit.

Ke$ha’s songs are meant to point out the sexism in our media. She treats men the same way many men in the music industry treat women, and she is hated on for it. Relentlessly. She sings on multiple occasions about taking charge in a sexual relationship, of how she only uses men for their body parts. She sexualizes men to make them uncomfortable. She sexualizes men for a reaction, so that people can both see why women are so uncomfortable with their sexualization and also to point out the inequality between the sexes both in the media and in the world at large.

She is judged so harshly for singing about things that make many men famous.

If you listen to Ke$ha’s deconstructed album you will see that she actually has some talent, which may be hard to hear because she does in fact use a fair amount of autotune. This is because of her genre and because of the kind of music she chooses to create as an artist. Ke$ha may not write her songs, but this doesn’t meant she isn’t a good artist or a good person. This doesn’t mean she deserves your harsh words. Some singers are good at writing, but that’s hardly a requirement. Last time I checked whether or not you can sing has nothing to do with whether or not you’re a poet.

You should not be calling anyone a piece of shit, my friend, especially someone you’ve never sat down and had a conversation (or even taken the time to wonder about her feelings!), but if anyone deserves that kind of language it’s not Ke$ha.

You may think that by shaming women for expressing their sexuality and having fun every once in a while, that you are somehow abolishing sexism. That in weeding out the less ‘deserving’ women you are gaining our sex more respect. This is not the case, and the fact that you and many others feel such a strong need to shame this woman who has done nothing wrong, especially not to you, shows that we still have a very far away to go.

I will defend ke$ha to the death amen

Hahaha. Yeah, we do have a resemblance (she’s a lot older than me, though). She’s from the band The Decemberists, they’re awesome.

BTW, I totally related to her little Sparklepony world :)

This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.

This is the result. And it makes me laugh every single time.

i wonder how many people just stopped playing to laugh hysterically because i would not have been able to keep that up oh my fucking GOD

could you imagine being the guy who got drums

OH MY GOD THANKYOU

FAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA

I couldn’t help it, I looked them up - turns out the whole POINT of the Portsmouth Sinfonia was that you were NOT allowed to know how to play your instrument, but you had to try your best!! LOL. This is amazing.

Wow, this is powerful. Love Lana del Rey, love this song, love interracial couples and love this twist. Intense.
