"Just listened to a "song" from Ke$ha. Fucking shoot me in the face! That was the worst 3min of my life. I am going to kill puppies now." Best. Tweet. Ever. Hands down. Couldn't have said it any better, numberthree. Not only do you swing the sticks with the zest of Papa Zita, clearly you've also been imparted with the wisdom of Solomon.

Ke$ha, in case you just joined us from exile (welcome back, BTW), has the hottest single in the land right now, the inescapable, totally odius ode "Tik Tok." Surely you've heard it. If not, give it a spin above -- or just imagine an unholy, completely sexless union of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, lubed up with the crotch grabbing bravado of the Millionaires. Uh huh. Face shooting pablum, however you stack it.

Regardless, right now, it's ruling the charts -- the loathsome ditty is currently number one on the iTunes album and singles chart, number on on SoundScan digital songs chart and tops the Billboard Hot 100 -- and the airwaves. And next up, is the appropriately titled "Blah Blah Blah," featuring the affable gents from 3OH!3, which is the number two single on iTunes right now. Sigh. Maybe we're missing something here.

Eh, whatever. Beats having to try and explain Susan Boyle, we guess.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
