Ke$ha's on the cover of Self's July Issue. 6 Questions About That...
Your crazy best friend Ke$ha covers SELF magazine's July issue and reveals her best diet, fitness, and healthy living tips. We're experiencing a little cognitive dissonance over seeing the "Die Young" singer as a mind-body guru...and we had a few questions.
She looks great! But, didn't she drink her own pee one time?
Wow, you have a good memory. Yes, she did. During an episode of her MTV documentary series Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life, she did, in fact, consume her own urine. "I was told drinking my own pee was good, I was trying to be healthy," she told BBC Radio 1, according to the New Zealand Herald. "Somebody tried to take my pee away from me, and I said, 'That is mine!' So I snatched it up and took a chug and it was really gross, so I don't do it anymore." Still, it's not like she regrets doing it.
So, um, is urine healthy to drink?
Good question. The general consensus is no, drinking your own urine is probably a bad idea. "There are no health benefits to drinking your own urine, and in fact I think it could be quite detrimental," Helen Andrews, of the British Dietetic Association, told the Independent. "Each time you put it back it will come out again even more concentrated and that is not good for health as it could damage the gut." Then again, plenty have people have survived on it for more than a week and others claim it cures colds and cancer. To each her own, I guess.
Is it true that Ke$ha brushes her teeth with whiskey? Should I be doing that, too?
C'mon, she just wrote about brushing her teeth with Jack because it rhymed with "back." Nobody actually thinks that's a good idea.
No, I'm pretty sure she endorsed the practice, didn't she?
Oh, you're right. Well, she's reformed, OK? "People think I sit around and drink whiskey all day, but I couldn't keep up on a three-month tour if I was getting hammered every night," Ke$ha tells Self. See, homegirl is all grown up.
Seems like she's turning over a healthy new leaf. Is that a good thing?
Ehhh, not really. Check out this quote about her nutrition: "Eighty percent of the time I watch my portions and eat veggies and lean protein," she tells Self. "It's excruciatingly boring, but it makes my body happy."
Ugh, snooooze. Where's old Ke$ha? Is she gone forever?
Nope! Self also asked her about the condoms with her face on it. "But people think because I hand out condoms, I must be some sort of hoe. That's not the case. I'm a little bit of a kissing slut, but usually I just make out and then run away." She's going hard-hard-ha-ha-ha-hard.
Wouldn't "Dinosaur" be a really great name for a new fitness move?
Yes. Go patent that shit before she gets word of your idea.
