Kesha Rose Sebert, known simply as Kesha (styled as Ke$ha until 2014; born March 1, 1987) is an American singer-songwriter. She has become famous for her style of dance-pop and electropop music, as well as her rap-singing of the lyrics to many of her biggest hits. She has three number-one songs in the U.S. They are "Tik Tok" (2010), "We R Who We R" (2010; number-one debut), and "Timber" with rapper Pitbull (2013). Kesha has also released the albums Animal (2010) and Warrior (2012), along with the EP Cannibal (2010) and the remix album I Am the Dance Commander + I Command You to Dance (2011). She also helped to co-write Britney Spears' 2011 single "Till the World Ends".

Early life

Kesha Rose Sebert was born in Los Angeles, California, on March 1, 1987. She was raised by her single mother, Pebe Sebert, and moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1991. She has one older brother and one younger brother.


In 2005, Kesha was in an episode of The Simple Life, which starred Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie.

Her first single "Tik Tok" reached number one in the US, Australia, and Canada. "Tik Tok" became the best-performing song of 2010 in the United States. She has sold 55 million records.

In 2010, Kesha's first album Animal was released. Her first extended play Cannibal was released later that year. Her third studio album, Warrior, was released in 2012.

Kesha was featured on rapper Pitbull's single "Timber". The song reached number one in Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US.

In July 2017, she released the single "Praying", along with its music video, and announced a new studio album, Rainbow. The song reached the top 30 in Australia, the UK, US, and Canada. It is notably different from her other singles because it does not use the dance-pop or electropop genres that she is known for.

Personal life

Early in her career, Kesha stated that the use of a dollar sign ($) in her stage name was meant to be ironic, as she was not raised in a wealthy household.
