Ke$ha breaks records....WTF!?

"Global pop superstar singer-songwriter, Ke$ha, continues to knock out her competition as her first single "TiK ToK" lands at the #1 spot at Top 40 Radio and sets the all time record for the most weekly spins in the 17 year history of the Billboard Charts.", writes Jamie Abzug of RCA Music Group

There's something for the past few weeks that I've been wanting to get off my chest to ya'll ...AM I MISSING SOMETHING?? Why all the hype around the 22 year old singer (questionable title), Ke$ha, who's style can be classified as "unkept" and who calls older men that hit on her "dinosaurs" (actually, that's kind of funny)? Not to be mean, but the most interesting thing about this new starlet is her breaking into Prince's LA home, leaving her CD with him and NOT getting arrested...check out more on that story, here.

I typically love to support artists seeking to impact the world with their artistry, even the popstars. I can appreciate Top 40ers whether their vocals take a back seat to their originality (Lady Gaga) or their moves (Beyonce), but this is where I draw the line.

I want to hear your take, agree? Disagree?
