Kesha is glad she has proven her critics wrong.
The Tik Tok singer was once told that a musical career would be out of the question, because of her looks.
"People told me, 'You shouldn't be singing' - I went through awkward, chubby, total weirdo phases," she said.
"I was in a marching band. Did you ever think a little, chubby, awkward girl with braces in the marching band would be No 1 on top of the pop charts? No, you wouldn't," she added.
Kesha hopes her fans will take away from her story a message that dreams can be realised rather than take tips from her song lyrics.
In Tik Tok, she joked about brushing her teeth with Jack Daniels and on Party At A Rich Dude's House, the 23-year-old said that she threw up in the closet - in real life, it was Paris Hilton's closet where she vomited.
"I get it, but it is a joke and I'm nobody's parent," she said about the concerns surrounding her lyrics.
"There are things that are said on television that are way more dramatising like violence and sex and a lot of things need to be explained in a grown-up world to little kids.
"I hope none of them go around drinking Jack Daniels for breakfast," she added.
