Ke$ha Dismisses Misconceptions, Admits to Being 'Kissing Slut'
(LOS ANGELES) -- We're used to seeing Ke$ha running covered in glitter with no pants, but she looks like a clean-cut college girl on the cover of SELF magazine's July issue, with light makeup, neon-green hooded sweatshirt and black workout shorts. Inside, the singer dismisses many of the misconceptions about her, like the fact that people think she's a perpetually-drunk sex maniac.
Discussing the fact that she hands out condoms with her face on them at her concerts, Ke$ha tells SELF, "I think every girl should invest in a condom with her face on it -- it's super awkward and hilarious. But people think because I hand out condoms, I must be some sort of ho. That's not the case."
"I'm a little bit of a kissing slut," she continues. "But usually, I just make out and run away."
Ke$ha also says that despite her party-girl reputation, she works hard to keep fit and healthy, and you can certainly see the results in the magazine's photo spread. "People think I sit around and drink whiskey all day, but I couldn't keep up a three-month tour if I were getting hammered every night," she points out. "Training for a tour is like training for a marathon."
Ke$ha says her fitness routine includes running, rock climbing, biking, swimming, yoga and circuit training, and that "Eighty percent of the time, I watch my portions and eat veggies and lean protein."
"I...want to look good when I'm nearly naked onstage in front of thousands of people," she tells SELF about her workout goals. "I'd prefer it to be a pleasant experience when people look at me...I don't have the best body in the world, but I choose to celebrate it."
