We couldn't tell what Ke$ha and Snoop Lion were puffing on as they presented one of the performances at this month's MTV Movie Awards, but we wouldn't have guessed that it was a sparkly substance.
But according to Ke$ha, it was.
"It was glitter," the pop and now reality TV star told The Hollywood Reporter (while giggling, it should probably be noted). "We were just smoking my glitter."
With that all cleared up, Ke$ha was ready to talk about her new MTV docu-series, "My Crazy Beautiful Life," which premiered on Tuesday.
"There was definitely no script. There was nothing contrived. It’s all real," Ke$ha promised of the doc's two-year dip into her life via behind-the-scenes footage filmed by her brother. "It’s all raw. And it’s all really honest because that’s kind of what I stand for anyways."
THR wasn't that impressed, saying in a review that "even in moments that should feel relatable, it's hard to take her seriously because of how seriously she seems to take herself," equating "My Crazy Beautiful Life" to "a standard tour documentary of a band you used to like."
Yet The Atlantic found the doc's transparency redeeming, adding that Beyoncé, who had her own documentary air on HBO in February, should take a few notes from the eccentric pop star.
"'My Crazy Beautiful Life' unflinchingly explores a universal phenomenon [Beyoncé's] 'Life Is but a Dream' didn't dare touch: failure," The Atlantic notes. "[S]o far, it's a braver, more believable documentary for it."
Entertainment Weekly agrees, saying in its review that Ke$ha, for the most part, is just being herself, and "that come-as-you-are nature helps make her bearable (and, yes, at times fun) to watch on and off the clock."
Did you catch "My Crazy Beautiful Life"? If so, what'd you think? And what do you think Ke$ha's "glitter" is made of?
