SO. Today my friend shared with me a series of interview clips Key-dollar sign-HA (Ke$ha) did with MTV. Now let me be clear, I don’t wanna be the asshole that bashes celebrities when I don’t even know them; but will someone please explain to me why this girl is famous?? Her whole act’s appeal is based on Glitter, auto-tune, and “glamorizing” excessive partying. As far as I can tell she has no real talent. Now maybe she really can sing, but I haven’t seen any evidence of vocal excellence thus far.
I will say, in today’s society there is a great deal of emphasis put upon producing a product that will make the greatest profit. To be fair that is the way contemporary society works; therefore Ke$ha is really a product of society’s lack of creativity and imagination. However I find it all a little disappointing.
I am currently sitting here avoiding my Art History notes, counting the hours until I get on the plane that will take me back to bean town. 45 hours…to be exact. I am wicked excited to be home and see everyone…my mum, my sisters, my friends; but I think what I am most excited for is not having to worry about school.
3 1/2 weeks of bliss. No walking to class in the frigid air. No readings 100 pages long…due the NEXT day. And finally, NO exams.
However my break won’t be all easy going. I am getting surgery just 3 days before Christmas. I have thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) which is a medical condition that effects your veins, arteries and nerves. In short, my first rib is compressing them. In order to correct this problem I must have my first rib removed. Hopefully Santa is listening and will have me home by Christmas.
