Ke$ha Performs On GMTV

Ke$ha hit the stage on the UK’s GMTV yesterday. The Pop sensation performed ‘Blah Blah Blah’, the 2nd single from her #1 debut album, ‘Animal’. Thus far, the song has peaked at #7 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and #11 on the UK Singles Chart. Ke$ha’s 1st single, ‘Tik Tok’, remains at #1 for a 9th week on the Hot 100 and if it maintains that position for 1 more week, it would tie Debbie Boone’s record for the longest running #1 debut single by a female artist.

Ke$ha put on a basic show by her standards. However, I’m sure that I’m not the only one who hears strong similarities between this track and ‘Tik Tok’. Isn’t it interesting that the latter is already more successful on the Billboard Hot 100 than Mariah Carey’s ‘Vision of Love’ or even Alicia Keys’ ‘Fallin”? O how the times have changed…

Thoughts?

    @ Jeff, that is so stupid. Do you really think 10 years from now Tik Tok is gonna be forgettable, or are you just a hater? That’s like saying Pokerface is gonna be forgotten about 10 years from now. Same s***, same genre, different day. A hit is a hit no matter what. Tik Tok is what music is right now, just like Fallin’ was what music was 10 years ago, just like Vision Of Love was what music was 20 years ago.

    Let’s not get cute now..

    I’m so sad and angry !

    I’m afraid of the future of music with that commercial music, but I see around me a lot of people who are willing to discover other things than “the hits”… I’m from France that’s maybe the reason why…

    I mean MJ was an ARTIST ! James Brown was an ARTIST…. etc
    These Artists had hits, had success, had talent, had personnality, and were “for real” !!!

    SAD ! SAD ! SAD !

    Yes I Do Think That. That BS will be forgotten 20 years from now, cuz i highly doubt Ke$ha will be come an Icon Like Mariah or will have staying power like her or Alicia keys.

    And hmmm maybe it i’ll be talked about in the future but i doubt it will be regarded as One of the best debut singles in history or it will inspire anybody to sing like vision of love did to many singers!

    Only time will tell whether Kesha will become an icon or have staying power in the industry. People’s “doubts” about her are so irrelevant, it’s not even funny. Kesha must be doing something right for people to sit behind their computers trying to dictate whether this chick is gonna last or not, especially considering the fact the chick ain’t even a flop. It is what it is.

    To those of you who are talking about “real music” and bringing up dead musicians, build a time machine and go back to the 60′s then! “Real artists” aren’t coming back, plain and simple. This is the times we live in and we just have to deal with it. What I appreciate about my own musical tastes is that I’m able to jam to those real “back in the day” artists who have paved the way for today’s sound, along with the sounds of the current times. People need to have an open mind when it comes to music. Those who don’t have an open mind…well I feel sorry for yall because it’s certainly not gonna get any better.

    What is “real music”? I know a lot of people who consider Mariah Carey and Alicia Keys to be “real music” because of their lyrics, however just as many people like the Lady Gaga, Kesha and Britney sorts because of how catchy their music is and consider that “real music” in the end doesn’t it just come down to taste… I mean if you like those back in the day stuff, there’s always your iPod–no-one is forcing anyone to listen to what’s on the charts right now.

    You cannot compare Britney nor Lady gaga to Ke$ha,

    What is Ke$ha bringing to the table? Nothing New, yes the song is catchy and is a hit already around the world but seriously , like i said 20 yrs from now nobody will give 2 shits for this song.

    Jeff, your opinion is strictly that – an opinion. It is what it is, you may not give two shits about the song but it doesn’t mean others won’t in the future. No matter what the case is, the song won’t be as relevant 10 or 20 years from now as whatever is current in those times. Just like Vision of Love and Fallin’ isn’t as relevant as Tik Tok in these current times.

    When it comes to Lady Gaga, she is in no way whatsoever “wayyyy” above Kesha. Sure she’s sold more albums and has a generally solid fanbase, but that’s only because she’s been around longer. The fact that Gaga is not way above Kesha is even more apparent with Kesha pretty much breaking every record Gaga has set, along with acquiring a number 1 album – something Gaga has yet to do. Kesha isn’t on Gaga’s level yet, but there’s no doubt she’s catching up quick.

    @H, you nailed it right on the head!

    is not about wats relevant or not is about what song has made a bigger impact in the industry.

    yes tik tok will be know as the Biggest debut single of a female but it wont be recognized as nothing else because surely another female will come out and break that record.

    Plus look Vision of Love was released 20 years ago and yet here we are talking about it.

    Like i said Vision of Love is remembered as one of the most iconic debut songs ever and has inspired millions of singers. and i doubt Tik-Tok will be remembered for that.

    Ok so Kesha is already annoying me! If the radios arent playing Lady Gag-Me every 5 minutes then theyre either playing Blah Blah Blah or Tik Tok. Blah Blah Blah is just a lazy title for a song. They couldn’t get more creative with it? Same with Tik Tok! Christina Aguilera needs to hurry the f*** up and release her new s*** to put all these gimmicky drowned out overrated bitches in their places. Christina I know you filming your movie still but give us the f****** song already…GLAM….sometimes you just don’t know how much you torture your fans. To make things worse, Gag-Me, Kesha, Rihanna can’t even sing let alone hold a note. Who the f*** is Justin Beiber. A 15 year with Ludacris on a track? Our music is going way downhill now. Whatever happened to good quality music that had emotion and feeling. instead now we have “Pooookkkerrfffaacceee, wake up in the morning feelin like P.Diddy, one two three only need you and me, on my video phone etc……” Lawd shut these f****** overrated bitches the f*** up!

    can i just say that gaga has had a number one album, im sure it hit number one in usa i’m not sure. but why the fugg does it have to hit number one in usa for it to be a hit, it hit number one everywhere else. it has rose to number two in the uk and has been out for 58 weeks. please don’t compare kesha to gaga because even those two names shouldn’t be bought up in the same sentence, that is just plain STUPIDD!!!

    Aha lol at the pubic hairs thing. I don’t like her, get nothing out of it but it doesn’t stop anyone else from liking her. Either way this is today’s music bland boring and recyled. how she can still be at number one is beyond me, noone cares about partying and tik tokking that much do they. And she always looks like she just woke up.
    If this is bad wht about Susan Boyle?? Fair doos shes all around the world and i’m happy for her but how in the foolishness does she stay up at number one for that long with a cover album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(only one out of 13 was original). she halted alicia and mary among others.

    @Matt, Gaga doesn’t have a number 1 album in the US. The Fame peaked at #2 and The Fame Monster peaked at #5.

    @NO – did you just say her album (Animal) was the worst you’ve heard yet…then only quoted ONE SONG from the album?? Child please…

    After Blah Blah Blah finishes..
    The next potential hits off of Animal are…

    “My Secret Weapon”
    “Hung Over”
    and/or possibly “Your Love Is My Drug” / “Kiss N Tell”

    If Hung Over is released as a single/video,
    I’m pretty sure that it’ll sway the criticism against her by a bit.
    Its actually a pretty good song. I can tell because when you find songs with catchy choruses that hit an emotional appeal …they tend to win better opinions about the artist.

    @ ARYO- exactly the song doesn’t make sense! How can britney make a song about a threesome and it hits #1 but christina gets ridculed for Dirrty and don’t use that lame ass excuse “cause she’s Britney”? Lady Gag-Me hasn’t had a #1 album in the US yet nor have any of her 2 cds debuted @ #1 in the US. check wikipedia.org Monster hasn’t even been certified plat yet in the US. It’s only steadied the top 5. That shows and proves that only the gay community is buying her freak horrible gimiicky s***! Why do you think Gag-Me had to combine the 2 cd’s together to make it look like she’s sold a lot. She also contradicted herself when she said that Monster was a stand alone album and that it was too expensive to just rerelase fame but then rereleased it combining it with the fame. cause the 1st week sales are living proof that just the gays are buying her s***!

    so what if it only went to number two, it is what you call LONGEVITY. she is still at number 7 after 68 weeks. come back when kesha has done that. kesha’s only hanging around at the bottom end of the top 20 after how many weeks, erm 6 weeks, add another 62 weeks to that and then come back talking your kesha s***.

    @ Matt- i just have the goods to back myself up! if it weren’t for 95% of Gag-Me’s fan base being the gay community she wouldn’t be s***! Look how plain she was when she 1st came out and then the gays noticed her and that gave her the boost she needed. Album sales do reflect how great of an artist you are and the songs that are on Monster were just leftovers from Fame.
