Ke$ha Tells ‘Seventeen’ Magazine That She Doesn’t ‘Love Just Men’


Popstar Ke$ha is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Seventeen magazine and in her coverstory interview, she reveals her love of people of both genders. She doesn’t come right out and say, I like girls but she may as well … her direct quote is, I don’t love just men.

In a bold interview with Seventeen magazine, pop star Ke$ha says that she is attracted to both men and women. “I don’t love just men. I love people. It’s not about a gender. It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with,” she told the magazine. This isn’t the first time Ke$ha has spoken out about her sexual orientation. She made a similar statement to Out magazine two years ago, in 2010, when she confessed to simply “liking people”: “I wouldn’t say I’m gay or straight -– I don’t like labeling things anyway. I just like people.”

Ke$ha may be attracted to members of both sexes but she is clearly turned off by anyone with a penchant for bullying:

[Ke$ha tells] the magazine that she “used [negative comments] to motivate me” and that she’s taken a strong stance against bullying. “I’m all about standing up to gay/lesbian/transgender bullying, but it’s also about my little brother. He’s 13 and he gets made fun of because he has a stutter. I just have zero tolerance for people making fun of others,” she said.

I have to say, I LOVE how open Ke$ha is about her feelings and attractions. I think it is very important for people of note to openly express themselves in this way because, I think, it gives courage to younger people who look up to them to speak out for themselves. Young Ke$ha fans might find comfort in the fact that she is so open with who she is and maybe they can be open and honest as well.

    that is great that a young persons magazine has a cover and interview with a star who speaks easily about her sexuality and talks about bullying. a great example for people young and not young.

    AND the kitten is so cute!

    I’m stunned that that interview ran in a Seventeen magazine. How awesome is that?

    I like it! I am not a huge fan of her music, but I have nothing against her. Not sure she is an impeccable role model, but speaking out like that will hopefully send a message that sexuality is nothing to be ashamed or afraid of. It is just a fact. Like the color of a person’s hair or eyes. It would be awesome, and a bit anti-climatic, if the glory days of rampant, mass homophobia are behind us.

    Mmmm, this is the same girl who “sings” about dying young and brushing her teeth with a bottle of jack….
