Ke$ha Double Shot

Posted on April 16, 2013

You wouldn’t think Ke-doll would rate a style Double Shot entry, but bless her heart, Dirty Girl has been making something of an effort lately and deserves some love and support.


Ke$ha attends the 2013 Logo NewNowNext Awards in Los Angeles, California.

This is a very cute dress that is clearly very wrong for her. Look, we appreciate the attempt to do something relatively conservative and traditionally feminine, but this is not the way to do it for her. She clearly wants to add a little edge to this look, what with the hair, eyeliner and abundance of jewelry, including those Band-Aid-looking things on her right hand. Seriously, what is that? At first we were all, “Oh, the poor dear got a limo door slammed on her fingers,” but that’s jewelry, right?

Anyway, we think a gal like Ke-doll can rock the occasional prim and feminine look with a twist, but this is way too “politician’s daughter” to be taken seriously. And it’s not the kind of outfit you can add a little edge to. Also, the color’s terrible for her.

Nice try on the traditional front, Ke-doll. Not quite there yet, but keep trying, sweetie!


Then, she shed her Good Girl drag to be among her own kind:


Ke$ha attends the 2013 MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles, California.

She clearly ran through Rihanna’s, Florence Welch’s, and Gaga’s backyards while their laundry was hanging out to dry and simply grabbed what she needed, or stumbled around until an outfit landed on her. That’s pretty much what this looks like to us.

Please don’t hate us for using this horribly trite, overused, and ultimately meaningless phrase, but: It is what it is, kittens. She’s Ke-Doll. It’s MTV. She’s gonna look a hot mess. We should be appreciative of the fact that she’s relatively covered up and put-together. It’s all derivative as hell but considering where she is and who she is, she’s not embarrassing herself here.

No, really.

  • She went from Chrissy Snow to Jackie Jormp Jomp. Nice.

    • JimMcC

      Perfection. There will never be a day when I don’t enjoy a good Jackie Jormp Jomp reference.

    • Mismarker

      Serving up some Suzanne Sommers meets Courtney Love realness in that first photo! And the legs! Better than Gwyneth’s I think.

    • Little_Olive

      Good thing your comment is first here because the thumbnail hit me with Suzanne Sommers omg what is Suzanne Sommers doing there. Anywaaay, I think she was trying to give it a “little girl gone bad” vibe, which came out so half-assed nobody really noticed.

      Re. the second look I think TLo’s assessment is 100% accurate.

    • MK03

      “Synonym’s just another word for the word you wanna use…”

  • Sarah

    Oh, she’s plenty embarrassing. I’m not afraid to say it. Girl has got not one shred of an idea of what looks good on her, minty-green minidress or lace pants, it doesn’t matter – she just looks like she’s playing dress-up with someone else’s clothes.

    • H2olovngrl

      YES! She always looks like she has no idea what she is doing or how she got there.

  • I very clearly see some alternate universe Suzanne Somers going on in the first look.

    • Sarah

      A very wide, strung out Suzanne Somers.

    • Beardslee

      I too thought it was Suzanne Somers!

    • uprightcitizen

      Totally Suzanne Somers. And the second one is Stevie Nicks (with my 80 year-old mother’s blouse tossed in there for some odd reason). Derivative is right. What other late 70s icons should we expect? I sure don’t want to see her in Farrah’s red swimsuit. Her legs in the green baby doll are kind of impressive, though.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Yes, at first I thought it was Suzanne Somers, too!

    • RebeccaKW

      That was my exact thought. Holy cow, it’s so spot on I want to believe it’s on purpose. Like she gets dressed every day hoping to channel someone.

    • filmcricket

      Yep. It’s basically Courtney Love Dresses Up as Suzanne Somers for Hallowe’en up in there.

      • We regularly get between 800-1000 trick-or-treaters every year at our house (yes, you read that correctly; I have a counter so that’s a verified figure) and I have to say if any of the high school kids show up dressed like this I will give them quadruple treats!

        I of course saw Suzanne Somers, as everyone else did, but I also could feel a little Nancy Sinatra “These Boots Were Made For Walkin'” vibe. Just add white patent leather go-go boots….

        • Wendi126

          1000 trick or treaters? Wow. That boggles me- where do you live?

          • Durham, NC. Our neighborhood is Halloween central for a lot of reasons…..we camp out on the front porch from 5:30-9:30 or so, with dinner and a bottle of wine. Great fun as long as you get in the right spirit–and only give out cheap candy.

          • Wendi126

            Sounds like fun. My husband loves Halloween and he carves pumpkins and hangs fake spiders etc. we give out full size candy bars and get about 50-75 kids. Would have to re-mortgage for 1000 🙂

    • maggiemaybe

      I saw that too!

    • rumcg66

      I was coming here to type exactly that! It’s Chrissy from Three’s Company!

    • BrooklynBomber

      Me, too.
      1. Suzanne Somers
      1. Cher
      2. Misfires

    • jmorino08

      Yes!! Exactly what I was thinking! And yet she’s channeling XTina in the second set of pics. Who knew she was such a chameleon?

    • Adelaidey

      When I saw the thumbnail, I thought “DAMN, Suzanne Somers looks GOOD”.

    • MK03

      I was just going to say, Drunk Suzanne Somers.

  • ChristopherM

    At least she looks clean. She usually looks like she’s been up all night tAking ketamine and receiving golden showers.

    • Rand Ortega

      Dayum (translation: True dat!).

  • I feel like she beat up a small child for the sunday best dress she was wearing in the first set.
    Her hair in the second look kind of upsets me.

  • nannypoo

    That first one – You know how when you’re a bridesmaid the bride always says of your dress that you will be able to wear it again? Well, Ke$ha is here to show us that you can but you shouldn’t.

  • teensmom99

    I wore the dress as a flower girl in my cousin’s wedding when I was 9 (1971). And the bottom look is the best I’ve seen her look . . . for whatever that’s worth.

    • Jackie4g

      See, and I wore that aqua creation to a Bar Mitzvah in 1963. It’s a real classic, all right.

  • Look número uno? Ultra hip sixties bridesmaid.
    Look número due? Ultra hip Withiepoo clone.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      Once again, you nailed it!

    • Rand Ortega


  • Sobaika

    Ugh. That looks like duct tape wound around each finger? Wtf girl.

  • VeryClaire

    Anyone else getting Chrissy Snow flashbacks from the first pic? Come and knock on our door…

  • andreawey

    I seriously thought this was Suzanne Sommers in the first post……….I was confused……….

  • Tatiana Luján

    In the first picture, she looks like a 14 years old bridesmaid who got drunk because she felt the dress she was told to wear was too childish.

  • In the first picture, I thought Suzanne Somers. In the second, I thought Christina Aguilera during her “dirrrrty” phase.

  • AndresB

    Every human being should be deserving of love.
    But look #1 is not.
    Look #2 deserves First Prize in a “Christina Aguilera – The Way She Was” competition.

  • Catiline

    I actually don’t totally hate the second outfit (given that it’s Ke$ha), but the makeup is Aguilera-esque and not in a good way.

    • Sarah

      Aguilera-esque makeup is NEVER in a good way.

  • decormaven

    What in the world is woven into her hair extensions in look number 2? Crocheted hair? Huh? That first look must be vintage, but it’s not in her wheelhouse.

  • I honestly thought it was Courtney Love in the thumbnail.

    I’m not loving either look but at least she looks showered.

  • That first dress looks like something a 10 year old would wear on Easter Sunday and I hate those shoes with it. All I can look at in the second look is those ratty extensions and the horrid lipstick color, but otherwise she looks ok.

  • Those eyes…what is she on? I wonder what the next big trend in music will be? When will the costumed, cracked out and skanky auto-tuned creations, be taking a back seat to actual voices, talented writers and people who make music you can feel? These girls and their shtick just make me cranky and worse, old.

  • MoHub

    First dress looks like Julie Nixon Eisenhower circa 1970.

  • JimMcC

    Second look is giving me some Stevie Nicks meets Steven Tyler realness. Definitely Suzanne Sommers by way Courtney Love on the first outfit.

  • Snailstsichr

    I am thankful she wore something under the white pants.

  • I think she’s smarter than she gets credit for, and part of me kind of dug Dirty Girl. That skeezy shit can’t go on forever, though, and if she wants to keep whatever relevance she has, she has to move on. Good for her — I hope she finds her utter personal and artistic fashion style, a la HBC.

  • In not-skeeze-free news, I think I can see the shadow of pubic hair, and I am torn. On the one hand, that is much too much information. On the other hand, hallelujah, someone has pubic hair! A celebrity admits her post-pubescence, film at 11:00! If she helps reverse the waxed-bald trend, she will have a special place in my affection.

    • drdarke

      Sorry, I think it’s a thong, @twitter-1289088379:disqus….

    • MK03

      All I see is a pair of lavender boyshorts.

  • RedRaven617

    When I saw that dress I had a flashback to my 1970’s dress I wore for my Bat Mitzvah. :::shudder::: Didn’t look good then, doesn’t look good now. Oh the humanity of it all….

  • SewingSiren

    It looks like she’s missing a tooth.

    • Paigealicious

      I think she has a gold tooth.

      • Sarah


  • formerlyAnon

    I like #2 on her. I mean, on *her.* And I like the maquillage, she needed something strong and kinda artificial to anchor the clothes.

    I think she could pull off a dress like #1, possibly even that dress itself (though a stronger color would be better) if she wore statement shoes and statement hair – polished, but koo-koo/campy. It isn’t working as is, though.

  • Deedles

    We should all be thankful that she has graduated to wearing underwear.

  • Paigealicious

    I think I wore that first dress to my eighth grade dance. In 1997.

  • Sally Draper by day, Stevie Nicks by night.

    • Little_Olive

      Hahahahaha so good.

  • capybara_cafe

    That first one looks like she mugged a 5 year old for her Easter dress. Wth.

  • mhleta

    Ew. Throw Britney Spears, Suzanne Somers, Boy George and a used condom into a blender and you’ll get Kaydollarsignha. She could not be more irrelevant if she were the third cousin of a Kardashian.

    • Shoelover1512

      hahahahahahahahah I love this

  • She looks relatively clean, which is a big step forward for her. Applause.

  • MilaXX

    I like the hair and the fact that she looks bathed in the first. Considering the venue, I don’t hate the second. I mean, she presented with Snoop Dog while pretending to smoke a doobie.
    Also apparently finger rings are a thing now

  • conniemd

    It’s that stupid belt bow that makes the dress so vintage little girl easter dress.

  • Imasewsure

    “She clearly ran through Rihanna’s, Florence Welch’s, and Gaga’s
    backyards while their laundry was hanging out to dry and simply grabbed
    what she needed,” THIS… nothing interesting about her at all

  • stubbornthoughts

    She looks like a cracked out Susanne Somers in that first picture.

    She looks like Christina Aguilera minus 30 pounds in the second.

  • ccm800

    There is something INFINITELY gross about the dangling pearls strewn across HER chest, that which cannot go unseen does not need any reminders. Get a grip

  • theblondette

    “Logo NewNowNext Awards”, ok, that has to be a joke, right? “Insert Award Phrase Here Awards”, right? Jeez.

    The first look is awful. No 2 – well, it’s okay. I wish her trousers weren’t seethrough but at least she appears to have knickers on.

    Also, is anyone else getting DISQUS notifications from months ago suddenly?

    • MikeW_Vegas

      Yes, they’be been showing up recently and won’t GO AWAY!!! (much like Ke$ha)

  • She looks a lot like Xtina in her Dirrty days in the second look. Assless chaps are on the horizon.

  • I thought that was Suzanne Summers in that first outfit! OMG, girl no. In the second, she looks like she’s attending a Stevie NIcks tribute. For her though, she’s done worse.

  • snarkykitten

    In the second set, she looks like the love child of Xtina & Amanda Bynes

  • another_laura

    Stevie Nicks called …..

    • PastryGoddess

      I was so coming here to post this

  • PastryGoddess

    That is some serious Susanne Somers realness in that first picture.

    I mean either Suz looks that young…or Ke-dollar sign-sha looks that old. Which is better???

  • First look: I can’t get past the fact that she needs to put some lotion on her legs

  • lrober03

    Are we sure that’s not Christina Aguilera in the second one?

  • jetpackdino

    Tick-tock, Ms. Kesha.

  • Ke$ha is that poor girl we all know who just tries a little too hard to ever be one of the cool kids. She doesn’t have the talent, looks or emaciated frame of the popular girls so she works twice as hard but is also super clueless and resorts to blow jobs in the parking lot for approval. It makes it very difficult to really like her but also very difficult to completely hate her.

  • Sally Brownson

    She always looks like a guy in really, really bad drag to me. Especially in the face.

  • Trisha26

    The mint green nonsense is Suzanne Somers. The second look is giving me XTina. I’m just grateful she wore underwear. The fewer posts about this train-wreck the better IMO.

  • Carina Green

    I still do not know what Ke$ha looks like?

  • Pamela Hunt

    Thank you, T-Lo, for pointing out the worthlessness of that inane phrase. I despise it!

  • Martha Jones

    Her hair and makeup in the first outfit force me to unleash the worst insult known to mankind:

    She looks like Donatella Versace.

    Kesha’s hair and makeup staff should be shot on site for committing this grievous sin.

    • demidaemon

      So you probably mean Ke$ha herself, correct?

      • Martha Jones


  • TheAmericaness

    Detox? Is that you?

  • I definitely thought it was Suzanne Somers too!!!


    Suzanne Somers + Xtina

  • fursa_saida

    I honestly think she looks better in the second look, just because she looks comfortable with it. The dress is all kinds of wrong–it’s also a terrible shape for her. And I just end up wanting to push her hair off her face and maybe cut her bangs a little wider because I feel like she’s about to suffocate in a sea of flat-ironed extensions.

  • bellafigura1

    At least she swapped out and color-coordinated the band-aids in the second look.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    OMG I cannot even provide support for either look, but especially the first one. That dress is LadyBird Johnson’s tea dress from the 60’s. And she looks like she’s channeling a really drunk and slutty Angie Dickensen, but with worse hair. NO NO NO NO.

  • guest2visits

    She looks horrid in the first pic. Why do I think she smells like mothballs? Everything she’s wearing creeps me out.
    TLo was right about the second – she ran through a few closets to make this happen. And she still looks like she needs
    to be fumigated. Trying too hard and failing like a master.

  • Jan de la Rosa

    About the first look, she said she was channeling Sharon Tate serial-killer victim vibe because… That’s a thing, I guess…

  • AshleyDeHaye

    She looks like the ghost of Stevie Nicks.

  • The second look is only giving me bad 90s Christina aguilera drag. Sorry
