Animal (Ke$ha, 2009)

Ever since the beginning of the pop-driven world, artists have manufactured themselves as “unique” in order to sell albums. After all, there’s no other way to be noticed in an environment so crowded. And there’s nothing wrong with fun, shallow music. The songs are catchy, yes. And danceable. And very, very addictive. My problem is that in the midst of developing their image, these artists, most of them arguably talented, somehow lose the soul that does make them unique. Or in this case, confuse the soul with $wagga. What angers me more is the whole point (or pointlessness) of Ke$ha being obvious. It’s written smack in the middle of her name in the form of an oh-it’s-so-uniquely-candid dollar sign. Money makes the world go round and people are eagerly buying her product. Never mind the mind-numbing inanity of it all.
